This eco-friendly inn features several adjoining elevated pavilions, which are perched over the gently flowing Sekonyer River on the edge of Borneo’s Tanjung Puting National Park. This remote retreat is only accessible via a traditional Klotok boat. Walkways join the 35 comfortable air-conditioned guestrooms, and the restaurant, reception area and lounge all blend naturally into the surrounding jungle. Guests will wake up each day to the sounds of birds, gibbons, and macaque monkeys. On occasion, orangutans can be seen roaming around the lodge. Most evenings, a family of proboscis monkeys will settle above the lodge in the trees to sleep. The unique location offers excellent access to a number of orangutan tours and feeding stations situated within the national park. The park is also home to several other primate species, and a wide array of birds that dwell within this lush rainforest.

In conjunction with Friends of the National Parks (FNP), this eco-friendly lodge has a re-forestation campaign. They have now planted over 11,000 trees in the park. The programme is funded from private donors and the company’s conservation fund, which also provides firefighting equipment. The Rapid Response Forest Protection Unit is based in the village of Tanjung Harapan, where a team of 15 persons whom have been specially trained by the Beechmont Rural Fire Brigade in Australia are on hand at all times in case there is a fire. In addition, the resort also works with the Tanjung Puting National Park and the NGO Friends of the National Parks to form local volunteer groups, and liaise with government-specific organisations (especially the national parks).
