To fully appreciate the ancient rhythms of the forest, the best thing one could do is to stay at least  a few days in Sepilok Nature Resort, a most beautiful compound bordering on the protected area  (it is actually not uncommon to have Orang Utans or pythons wandering around among the  chalets) and perfectly integrated with the surrounding forest.  Set in a spectacularly landscaped private area of manicured lawns and rolling hills, the fully air-  conditioned (and very comfortable) twin bed chalets feature beautiful lake or jungle view  verandahs and private bathrooms with hot water; the surrounding garden - which would take half  a day to explore - offers and amazing array of tropical plants and grasses and a collection of more  than one hundred and fifty different Asian orchid species. Front office, tour information desk and  restaurant are all integrated in the resort main building built with charming traditional wooden  interior reflecting a truly tranquil setting, overlooking the green shimmering curtain of lowland  tropical rainforest canopies with some formations reaching almost 80 to 120 feet. A view of the  beautiful natural lake at the heart of the resort is a sight not to be missed. Guest can enjoy a  sumptuous meals cooked by our chef with a fusion of local and western cuisines served in the  central building under cove rd terraces in a serene setting overlooking the lake and virgin  rainforest. The Orang-Utan Rehabilitation Center (where young captive or abandoned Orang Utans are  being helped by a highly trained and motivated staff to re-adjust to a life in the wild, and where a  Sumatran rhino breeding program is in progress) and the actual Sepilok Forest Reserve are just a  few minutes' walk away, and the Resort staff are happy to organize birding, trekking and river trips  to the neighboring areas (including the fauna rich Sukau area along the Kinabatangan river and  Turtle Island off North of Sandakan)  Facilities Sepilok Nature Resort To fully appreciate the ancient rhythms of the forest, the best thing one could do is to stay at least a few days in Sepilok Nature Resort Sepilok Nature Resort is a full-service hotel with 24 hours front desk service for our guests Important : This is the resort owner’s site.
