Sukau Lodge accommodation was included in our tour of the Kinabatangan River.

The accommodation here was basic, this was to be expected, as you are situated in the Jungle a long way from anything.
From what I understand, the only way to reach here was by boat.

Our room was clean, which is the most important thing for us. The people in the room above made a lot of noise which you could easily hear as the walls were very thin. We were unlucky there, as the people in the room next to us were very quiet, and we didn't hear boo out of them!

Included in our tour was Breakfast and Dinner.
Breakfast was basic, but o.k. Our meal at night left me with little to eat. as the asian food was all very hot and spicy. They did not have one dish that wasn't, which I thought they should have, as a lot of people can't eat the other!
I didn't have anything else with me to eat, so perhaps a tip, take something to nibble on.

Be aware if you are booking acc. in this area, there are other Lodges with similar names, they may be better than this one.
