Riverbank construction at Borneo Rainforest Lodge

Jump to last reply

We are booked for a 4 day stay next month at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge. Today I received an email saying in part:

"We wish to inform that due to the recent unexpected heavy rain, riverbank preventive works in front of the Royal Chalet will be carried out for 6 months from December 16, 2011 to June 2012. There is an urgency for such preventive work at this area as further erosion may jeopardize the structure of the riverbank and its surrounding area. The works will start from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily and we will do our utmost to minimize the noise disturbance."

Two things bother me about this. The first is that the construction noise and activity might scare off the local fauna from coming near the Lodge. My impression from various trip reports is that one of the charms of the Lodge, quite apart from the daily hikes, is the chance to observe animals along the river while sitting on the deck of one's cabin. The second is that this work started two months ago and the first mention of it was made only after our reservation was made and deposit taken.

If anyone has been to the BRL in the last two months, I would be interested in hearing your take on the impact of the construction.
