We are overall very pleased with our stay at Greenview. This is a place and tour that sets the nature and experiences around that in focus. I really hope this will continue and that not other things to please for example chinese and korean guests will expand which we saw with horror at other places...
The cabin was very simple, not 100% clean and confy but it works for 2 or 3 nights. The "livingroom" by the river where all meals were served was really nice to hang out at between the activities.
The food that was served is simple, well prepared and tastes good.
The best part and why we went to Greenview was of course the tours on the river, in the jungle and to Gomantong cave. All these events where very good organized. We saw a lot of animals including wild elephants. Transportation from Sandakan and back worked also very good. The guides at the different events where great. They could and should be a little more on their toes to give us tourists a little more information about different things. This is our only time here and it's important for us.
The booking of the tour and the contact and service with Syafiq at HQ in Sandakan was excellente. Syafiq is a great provider of high values and service-mind.
I recommend everyone to experience the wildlife in this region and travel with Greenview.

Took one of the 2 night 3 day packages which included a home stay dinner with local family, morning jungle walk, a couple of river cruises and full meals. During the river cruises we got to see orangutans, gibbons, cranes snakes and crocodiles. Meals were plentiful and good. The bungalow style accommodations were well kept, clean and modern.

What an amazing experience we had staying here. We loved every minute! The room was great - lovely warm shower. Just what we needed after being out in the rainforrest/on the river. The staff were all lovely, friendly and very knowledgeable- The river cruises were incredible. I didn't expect them to be as good as they were. The guide took us up and down the river both morning and night where we spotted pygmy elephants, crocodiles, hornbills, snakes, proboscis monkeys and more! It was so exciting getting up in the dark and going out on the river-certainly an experience I will never forget. The timings between the activities were perfect, just enough time to relax, eat and chill out with a gorgeous view of the river. I would like to thank the lovely receptionist for helping us with all our queries and arranging transport to take us to our next location, the sweet little lady who cooked our breakfast, lunch and dinner - the food was VERY good! And also a thank you to our guides and everyone else who made our stay enjoyable. You're all doing a great job! Thank you.

Is a nice experience cruising the river we saw some lizard and monkey and hornbill, no luck for elephant and croc. but the journey is long. recommended the a night stay otherwise it would be 2.5 hours from sandakan town and another 2.5 hours back...which is quite tiring.

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for joining our river cruise and yes you are right that it's good to stay overnight and join the night cruise and the morning cruise so you will have more chances to see wildlife. You will also have time to relax from the 2.5 hours drive.

You may come to visit us again and stay one or two nights and hope this time you will see elephants and crocodiles :-)

Regards,
Emelyn

The staff at Sukau Greenview were very friendly, helpful and our 2 guides were very knowledgable about the area and showed us lots of wildlife during our cruises and jungle trek! Sadly we didn’t see any orangutans or Pygmy elephants but that is beyond the staff’s control.
The accommodation was basic but clean and good enough for a 2 night stay. The food was hit and miss, sometimes dishes were really nice and others not so much. The tours were well organised and pick up and drops offs were good too.
On the last day my boyfriend left some of his clothes there by accident and they dropped them off in Sepilok for us where we were staying for the next few days which we really appreciated! Really nice people and a great experience!

Hi Emma,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we are glad to know that you had a good experience. Your comment about the food has been noted by our cook for improvement.

We are also very happy for the appreciation.

Since you have missed the Orangutans and the Pygmy elephants, you may come back and hope this time you'll see them.

Have a great journey ahead.

Regards,
Emelyn
