How to choose a jungle lodge in Sabah

Jump to last reply

it is very difficult to figure out which jungle lodge in Sabah to choose to visit as part of a vacation on Borneo. The prices are all over the place. Some of the lodges do not include pricing on their web sites and don't respond to inquiries.

Some examples:
A 3D/2N package at Borneo Rainforest Lodge is $1646 for 2 people including pick up/drop off in Lahad Datu.
A 3D/2N package at Sukau River Lodge is $1132 for 2 people including pick up/drop off in Sandakan.
A 3D/2N package at Bilit Rainforest Lodge is $842 for 2 people including pick up/drop off in Sandakan.

I can't find a price for Borneo Nature Lodge, Abai Lodge, or Kinabatangan River Lodge.
Are there any I'm missing?

They all seem to have similar programs. But is BRL really worth $500-$800 more than the others? Can someone who has stayed multiple places give me advice as to which I should choose? Do you know of a local Sabah TA that could help with all of the options?
