With garden views, Sukau Backpackers B&B is located in Sukau and has a restaurant and room service. Beautiful peaceful setting. Great free breakfast. Perfect place for a river cruise. Loved that they had a water refill station to cut back on plastic bottles.
Located in Sukau in the Sabah region, Sukau Greenview Bed & Breakfast has accommodations with free private parking. Guests at the bed and breakfast can enjoy an Asian breakfast. Directly on the river, rooms are basic but what you would expect. Would recommend going for the package, we didn’t and paid separately for each cruise. It did although give us the opportunity to find alternatives for dinner at a place further along the river.
Set atop a 328 foot hill overlooking the Kinabatangan Forest Reserve, The Last Frontier Boutique Resort is located in Bilit, and is located a 2 hour drive from the beautiful Sandakan. It's just amazing how Jason and his team took care of us. I have never experienced such individual, sensitive and thoughtful hotel management. One example is the food, which is not only excellent but a variety of Malay cuisine and the continent of each guest. The pickup from our hotel in Sepilok was reasonably priced and absolutely on time, as was our onward travel to another jungle camp. The Boutique-hotel simply organizes everything. Included in the price are 2 boat trips and a walk in the jungle (we added another boat trip for a fair price) with a very knowledgeable guide. The accommodation is in the middle of the jungle, so we could experience the feeling of nature and the jungle sounds up close, but at the same time enjoy the luxury of a clean, good hotel. Since there are only 4 rooms the atmosphere is very private and individual. It is good to communicate special catering needs in advance, as the food is always bought fresh in Sandakan, which is far away. We especially liked how much information about the country and the people we got from Jason (and we really asked a lot of questions) - afterwards we really felt like we got to know Malaysia a lot.
Located in Sandakan, Kinabatangan Wildlife Lodge has free WiFi, and guests can enjoy a restaurant and a bar. Some units are air-conditioned and include a seating and/or dining area. Staff was very kind, 10 minutes walk to the river and close to a trail for 30 min hike where you have a great view to the river and you can see sunrise. Make sure you do morning cruise (to see monkeys and birds and crocodiles of you're lucky), afternoon cruise (to see more monkeys) and night cruise cruise (to see countless stars).

Alonto Hotel has air-conditioned accommodations in Sandakan. Among the facilities at this property are a 24-hour front desk and an ATM, along with free WiFi throughout the property. I like the place and the staff so friendly and easy to negotiate....
It was incredible. We did the morning and eveninv cruise with Masz (they have their own boat). We saw almost everything! Saw an Orangutan and Masz got a tip off about an elephant but it left just before we arrived but we could still hear it moving through the forest, saw loads of every type of monkey and even a large croc on the bank. Loads of birds like Kingfishers and Hornbills. The restaurant is incredible too, and so cheap! Masz even drove the whole hostel to the local market on Friday evening in her truck. Can’t recommend this place enough. Thanks Masz for such a memorable stay.
Nice place for observation of wild nature during river cruise. But you must be patient. We didnt see a huge amount of animals close to us but it was really nice to observe orangutans, proboscis monkeys, hornbills and other endargered species in wild nature. It is fine to have binoculars for river cruise. We didnt have it and we would really appreciate it. Night river cruise was also very interesting. We really admired eagle eyes of our guide who could see birds, snakes, little crocodiles and showed us them from very near distance if it was possible.
