I had a great night at Tampat do Aman. Howard, the owner is a really friendly guy who does great work for the locals and the area. I stayed in a room in the Longhouse and really enjoyed the open showers! The toilets are ecofriendly, without a flush, but that is not a big deal (even though I got a...

Also other seating areas with hot water and drinking water. There is a Rungus museum on the property. All in a jungle setting. The Rungus cafe...

However, I did not really enjoy my stay here that much.The recently constructed longhouse is charming and it is a special experience to sleep here.

The room we stayed in was extremely dated and in need of some repairs. It was tiny, the sheets were unclean and the bathroom dirty. We were at the end of a 6 week tour so had stayed in worse but the owner Howard is just out to take your money. I think he is trying to become the King...

I stayed 8 nights in a small hut. The location is really very nice and I didn't sleep so well since a lot of time. The price for the small, basic hut isn't really cheap for the service that gives, but that's fine... Tip of Borneo isn't a cheap place. But: - in 8 days that I stayed there, they...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome friends. At the Tip of Borneo lies an Eco resort and jungle camp called Tampat Do Aman. In the local Rungus language this means "a place of friends".We are located by the only road that leads to this phenomenally beautiful coastline that stretches from the Tip of Borneo 10km to the south, incorporating eight of the best beaches Sabah has to offer. The area really is a jewel in the crown of Sabah. In Tampat Do Aman Tip of Borneo you will find : A Jungle camp (Traditional Rungus long House), A beach front restaurant and Bar (“Tip Top”) and an activities center. If you are a nature lover like us then there is lots to do here in Tip of Borneo. Our activities center offers bicycles and snorkeling gear for rent. There are different trekking and night tours happening and you can even take a course in Jungle Survival. ... more   less
