Paganakan Dii Tropical Retreat, Sepilok
Borneo, Borneo (Sabah)

Info : Paganakan Dii Tropical Retreat

An eco-resort providing a tranquil, natural place to relax and unwind whilst gaining insight into Borneo’s rich rainforests. It suits those wanting an authentic experience with some modern comforts (not including Wi-Fi!)

The resort is well positioned to explore the Kinabatangan River, the second longest river in Malaysia with a plethora of surrounding wildlife. From cruising down the river and spotting proboscis monkeys, gibbons and orangutans to dabbling in a spot of birdwatching there is lots to see and do.

Paganakan Dii itself is composed of a large central communal pavilion with surrounding satellite longhouses and stilt huts for bedrooms. The longhouses offer dormitory style accommodation with 12 adults per longhouse with a shared bathroom. The Duplex stilt rooms offer a little more comfort and privacy. They feature panelled wooded walls, a homely seating area, balconies, a skylight and a double bed with nearby bunkbed. Each have en suite, air-conditioning and fans.

The communal pavilion offers al fresco dining from recycled cable spools and wooden box seats, quite an experience! On the top floor is a cushioned deck where you can enjoy a sundowner and listen to music.

All in all, this is a comfortable and authentic place to stay whilst exploring the wildlife of Sabah along the Kinabatangan River. 


Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!

Customer Feedback
ETG's Matt was always accessible (even though we are based in Hong Kong) and efficient in replying. Will be happy to recommend and use him again! Our guide Bryant in Abai was a real gem. He was very polite, incredibly well spoken, informative, intelligent and gentle. He foresaw our needs, such as ordering chips for the children's lunch, and went out of his way to make things comfortable for us. He was a pleasure to spend time with.
