Fodor's Expert Review The Last Frontier Boutique Resort

PPM 309 Elopura, Sandakan, Sabah, 90000, Malaysia

Aptly named, this unique hotel perched on a hill (538 steps up the hill, to be precise) in the middle of the Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary is about as close as you'll get to a treehouse, and with only four guestrooms it's almost as small. Though modest, rooms are comfortable and spotless, with good beds, functional bathrooms, and a common terrace. Here, it's all about the surroundings. Along with an view over rain forest and the river below, you'll be up close and personal to the jungle wildlife, and passionate and knowledgeable hosts offer a thorough introduction to the area's extraordinary natural beauty and wildlife.
