Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort

Location
Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary, Sabah

This remote jungle ecolodge offers an incomparable location from which to explore the wildlife-rich wilderness of the Lower Kinabatangan Segama Wetlands region. Tucked within a secondary forest reserve and surrounded by pristine freshwater swamps and mangrove forest, this exclusive nature retreat is located in undeveloped wilderness about an hour's boat ride from Sandakan Harbor. Access is by elevated walkways made from local Bornean ironwood. Accommodations are in 10 deluxe wooden chalets offering plenty of space, privacy and amenities. All have gleaming hardwood floors, comfortable beds with cool linens, air conditioning, ceiling fan, and a private en suite bathroom with large walk-in hot and cold showers, double sinks and bathing toiletries. Each has an open-air deck for your secluded sojourn in nature. Free Wi-Fi access is available within the restaurant area. Laundry service is offered for an additional fee. Electricity is provided 24 hours a day via solar panels and a generator. The resort uses river water that is treated and sand-filtered before use. Rainwater is also collected to supplement the water system.

The broad floodplain surrounding the lodge is one of the most important wildlife refuges in Malaysia and is recognized as an internationally important wetland for its undisturbed ecosystem that shelters a number of rare, endangered and threatened species, including Sumatran rhinoceros, proboscis monkey, Borneo pygmy elephant, oriental darter and rhinoceros hornbill. Five distinct habitats in the region—waterlogged and dry forest, limestone forest, and saline and freshwater swamps—support some of the most varied concentrations of wildlife in Borneo. The biodiversity of the area is striking, with 1,000 plant species, more than 200 bird species, 90 fish species, and 50 mammal species. In the vicinity of the lodge, guests can expect frequent sightings of birds and monkeys such as silvered langur, maroon langur and hose langur, and wild orangutans are regularly spotted in the area, too.
