Nicest place to stay on Kinabatangan river?

We are planning our trip to Sabah for next August.

Which do you think is the nicest place to stay on the Kinabatangan river? I am leaning towards the Dive Down Below's Myne Resort, but english tour operators all seem to want to steer me instead to (different) other lodges etc

Perhaps so they can book them for us, rather than have us do that part of our holiday independently? Or do you think another lodge (which) is nicer?

Thank you for your help.

I stayed at the Myne Resort earlier this month and found it to bre very good. I booked through Downbelow, they do not own the resort but arranged my trip.

G,DAY.

Agree with bigw, we had two days at the Myne resort and would return again at the drop of a hat. Nice cabins, friendly staff, great food and lots of wildlife.

Thank you very much BigW

I feel comfortable with that choice, I was just wondering if anyone felt somewhere else to stay is genuinely better or not?

Hi Worldtraveller99,

I have not stayed at Myne but passed by the resort during one of my river cruise. Looks good from the outside,not too sure whats it like from the inside.

I stayed at Proboscis Lodge during one of my family trip,nice comfy & spacious room. Nice meals with big river prawn served.

Saw an Orang Utan, proboscis monkeys,macacs,wild boars,eagrets during my evening cruise.

If you wish to book directly with the resort,you can check out:

You are welcome!

If you are keen on booking it yourself directly with the resort, this may be one of the option.

If you need anymore suggestion, please feel free to ask.
