Exceptional 10.0
Great for nature lovers
Accommodations were excellent, the staff friendly and the proximity to the orangutan reserve was very convenient (a 5 min walk). A lot of wildlife on site. Room for improvement at the restaurant. Food was okay, but not great.

Food was excellent, staff terrific. Great location near Gorilla and Sun Bear preserves. Very spacious accommodations. I would like to have had wifi available in my room and more than only 3 television stations, none of which were in English.

Poor 2.0
Not at all what it seems
Stayed here with my girlfriend in 12A, WOULD NOT RECOMMEND STAYING HERE Pros: -great night walk! Guides took their time, were great at spotting wildlife -beautiful facilities (although do not function properly) -clean room although amenities do not work properly Cons: -MY GIRLFRIEND GOT SICK AND WAS VOMITING 4 HOURS AFTER EATING OUR FIRST DINNER AT THE HOTEL. She ate the carrot ginger soup. This cannot be directly pinpointed at the hotel but I am a healthcare professional and there is a likelihood it was from the meal -the resort will rip you off for any tour besides the night walk. We booked our own river cruise for 3/4 the price and during the river cruise it appeared as if the company offered by the hotel was rushed (we saw and spoke with other hotel guests during the river cruise, on another boat we pulled up next to, during the river cruise itself). They will charge you and extra 20-30 ringit to walk you 5 minutes over the the sun bear and orangutan sanctuaries (they are not hard to find). Their airport taxi is also upcharged (50 ringit) and not better than the ride we received from the airport (40 ringit). The only tour I would say is fairly priced is the night walk. -the food is awful. My girlfriend ordered the Cantonese noodles, described as fried and nothing mentioned about being a VERY CREAMY dish. She’s lactose intolerant, Asked nicely for something new and the chef was rude -hot water lasts less than 10 min, u will not be able to use the bathtub

Awesome stay at Sepilok Nature Resort.
Beautiful resort. Nicely laid out. Room met all needs. Lighting could have been better. Food at the restaurant was terrific! And of course, super convienent location given the 5 min walk to both the orangutan and sun bear rehabilitation centers. We were there only one night. Would have been a more relaxing stay if we stayed 2 nights.
