A Charter Member of NatGeo Unique Lodges of The World

Built in 1995, The Sukau Rainforest Lodge is perched on the bank of the Kinabatangan River in Borneo, one of Asia's most important waterways. Sukau was the first lodge in the area designed based on ecotourism principles. It is built on stilts using Borneo hardwood species and is completely self-sufficient in water, harvesting rainwater and solar energy for hot water heating. Electric motors are used for river safari tours to wildlife areas to minimise air and noise pollution and reduce stress to the wildlife. Every room has an attached bathroom with solar hot water shower while electricity is supplied at night by a generator set. Facilities included – a bar lounge, gift shop, Gomantong Hall meeting place, education centre, Hornbill Boardwalk with two elephant passes, three open decks for wildlife viewing, an enclosed garden, a riverside Melapi restaurant, open sun-deck, river jetty and a dip pool.

The lodge provides a great wildlife experience to visitors while preserving the Kinabatangan flood-plain. At 560 kilometres, Kinabatangan River is the longest river in Sabah, and second in Malaysia. The flood-plain of the Kinabatangan is one of the most exceptional areas in eastern Malaysia. The Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary is known to have among the highest concentration of wildlife in Borneo. Early dawn and late afternoon river cruises provide the perfect opportunity to see 10 primate species – usually the Proboscis Monkeys, Orang Utan and Borneon Gibbon. Among the 50 recorded mammals species found here including the Borneon Pygmy Elephant and Bearded Pig.
