Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort

Kinabatangan River | Superior

Immerse yourself in the unique wildlife of the Kinabatangan River and Sabah’s famous wetlands. Journeying to the lodge is an adventure in itself, with a scenic hour-long river cruise transporting guests deep into the habitat of creatures native to Sabah, including Proboscis monkeys and the elusive pygmy elephants.

Cautious not to distract from the scenic views, cosy lodges nestle amongst the trees and are accessible by wooden walkways. Comfortable, spacious rooms are decorated tastefully, with hardwood floors and large windows allowing guests to feel close to the surrounding forest. Bathrooms are large and clean, with tiled floors and hot water showers.

Like most Kinabatangan resorts, meals are served in the central restaurant area and are buffet style, focusing on fresh, local ingredients and traditional Malaysian cuisine.

The main focus of visitors to the river is, of course, the incredible local wildlife. It’s possible to arrange river cruises with skilled guides who know the best spots to view native species of birds, monkeys and elephants. Cameras and binoculars are a must!
