This place is located in a great spot and the whole idea isn't bad, but there is no atmosphere, no cushions on wooden chairs and longchairs, no colors, no music and no wifi. I do understand we are in the jungle but when you charge as much as you do,a bit of attention to details should be paid. no towel...

This was my second stay at Paganakan Dii. As soon as my sister and friend said they wanted to visit Sabah, I knew I had to find time to stay here. The accommodation is comfortable and clean, but not luxurious. The open bathroom is an experience: you look straight out onto the jungle while showering. The cabins also have a...

Amazing cabins, quite basic but they had a huge comfy bed and bunks for the kids with mosquito nets, an open air shower and bathroom (with modesty netting) so you can see the beautiful view, and sliding walls so you can lie in bed and feel like you're in the rainforest!! The staff are really friendly and happy, and were...

We had a wonderful ridge view hut - no windows but one of the bamboo walls slides open to give views to the edge of the Sepilok reserve. The room was very clean (but, being a more basic accommodation, wasn't cleaned during our 3 night stay). We sat on our small balcony and watched the birds and squirrels. If you...

We loved our trip to Paganakan Dii! Upon arrival, the very friendly staff checked us in and directed us to our rooms which were in the form of a wooden cabin. The whole set up is just a great experience.

I am scared to tell everyone about this hidden gem as it will become too popular and we won't have a chalet when we want to go back again - but here goes. YES, IT IS THAT WONDERFUL. -tucked into the nature reserve, ask for a ridge view hut, worth the extra $$ - food prices are very decent, not...

Stayed here for 3 nights in July 2016. The staff were attentive and caring and were always there to answer any questions. There were lots of menu choices available which was handy because there wasn't anywhere close by to eat. We had a huge (and free) breakfast each morning. I will definitely return here one day.

Our family, children aged 9 & 12, really enjoyed our stay here. Our cabin was cleverly designed and very convenient. The sliding wall gave access to a small balcony and amazing views. The beds were clean and very comfortable with musquitonets allready in place. The bathroom had hotwater and great views! Meals were good and the restaurant was a good...

My husband and I Came For one night and stayed one week!!! If you want the private room make sure to have reservations! Lots of places to go, they offer a free shuttle to the main attractions like the orangutan and the sun bear conservation centers.
