'The best kept secret in Borneo....'

Nipah Resort is surrounded by nature with mangrove paths. A perfect retreat place to get away from busy hostels and lodges. It is the only accommodation within minutes to Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary.

The view from each private chalet balcony and dorm rooms are overlooking to a pure serenity of a low land forest. It is like being part of a scene from National Geographic rainforest.

Within minutes of walking distance to the primates and wild orchids around the lodge, wild birds to watch like Oriental pipe hornbills, fire-flies at night like a Christmas tree lighting. It is just simply an amazing experience not to be missed in Borneo!

Hospitable staff, passionate owner and great food!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It may take a while to get there and may be unknown to most taxi drivers but the remoteness is wonderful. The chalets are quaint and privately situated on stilts among the forest and mangroves. Unfortunately they have let the boardwalk go into disrepair, so there is nothing to do between visits to the Proboscis Centre.Service is good if you know what to ask for, they will not offer up any information, you must somehow know what to ask for. Don't be fooled into thinking that because this lodge is next to the monket centre that anything will be cheaper or included in your price. They will (without telling you) add the car trip to feeding sessions, the night walk and transport out of lodge to your bill.
Nice relaxing stay with only ywo other guests, can get boring, with nothing else to do but the Proboscis monkeys make up for that.
