Our stay at the Last Frontier resort was absolutely fabulous! We are travelling with our 3 teens (12-15-16 years old), and all 5 of 5 mentioned our stay in this tiny resort as the best highlight of our trip. Gert and Jason came to pick us up at Sandakan, and we drove about 2 hours to the resort. As soon...

Everything written here is true. Food is really good. I recommend 2 nights there. The first cruise was not that successful. But the second day, I say lots of monkeys and elephants.

I spent 2 nights here a few weeks ago and it was absolutely fantastic. The owners, Jason and Gert, were great - very friendly and genuinely want to see you have a good time. Although it's a bit of a hike up the stairs, it's well worth the effort. The resort is tiny, with only 4 guest rooms, which means...

I won't repeat what everyone else has already said - all I can say is that if you can't decide which river lodge to stay at, stay with Jason and Gert at this place! You won't be disappointed! I loved it. The stairs are hard the first time but that's only because you don't know what's at the top yet::-)...

We stayed at this boutique resort based on the good rating of Tripadvisor. Jason, Gert and their team for sure gave us a once-in-a-lifetime experience! If only for those more then 500 stairs to climb to begin with! Rooms were big and super clean, food was great and very personalised but the best was the hospitality, the nice chats, the...

During the diner Gert let us taste different fruits...

This place is an amazing place to stay. There are 4 rooms and consequently the staff are very attentive to your individual needs. It is in a truly beautiful spot with amazing views and although the 500 or so steps are hard work it is really worth the walk!! The food is delicious and as a vegetarian they made me...

Last Frontier Resort is certainly a place I can recommend. It's build on the top of a hill surrounded by rainforest. The view is magnificient, the food even better. The rooms are clean and spacy. We had a good bathroom with a decent shower and warm water, a luxery in the jungle! We enjoyed the 2 rivercruises and the junglewalk....

I highly recommend this place. Check out our travel map - you can see how many places we have been and we are fussy. But this place was fantastic for the service. Truly, you will not get better service anywhere else and it really makes a difference. Belgian and Malaysian owners make the perfect mix. You get picked up from...
