Barefoot Sukau Lodge

Reviewed 14 November 2014

If you're fine with roughing it with the accommodations, and love adventures and wildlife, this should be a place you should to visit. The other tourists along with the staff are very friendly, and there is wildlife everywhere. You should definitely take their river tours, even if it's raining like heck, because we saw an elephant, hornbills, proboscis monkeys, kingfishers, all sorts of animals. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, and the food is great.

I stayed in the dorm, originally had it to myself but when a group of four arrived they also joined me - in a room with four beds. The extra mattress on the floor certainly did not leave much space to move around!

The river cruises were surprisingly quiet as the guides hardly gave any information on the animals other than their names.

We did stay 3 nights in Barefoot. The staff is very friendly, the food is perfect, river cruises are a great experience. We spotted elephants, different species of monkeys, crocodiles, many birds etc.
The accommodation is very basic, no airco, not very clean, we had some flees in our bed, the sewer system did not work that well, leaking water mains etc.
Barefoot is offering a great nature experience the accommodation however needs refurbishment. Due to the poor accommodation the price is to high.

Room Tip: It's about nature. Do not expect great rooms.

The whole experience was very good. River cruises were nice and our guide was very funny and helpful with explanation. They picked us at the airport and took back there with no extra fee.
The accomodation was quite wild.. The room was not clean to be honest. It was full of insects and the bathroom was not that good (no box shower i.e.).
It is quite cheap compared with the other lodge.
All the meals could be improved.
I suggest to stay there 2 days and 1 only night.. It'd be enough. Do all the 4 river cruises and that's it. We saw birds, different kind of monkeys, orang, cocodriles, snakes, frogs, varano, etc

Barefoot Lodge was such a disappointment .
The rooms all needed some maintenance .Especially the bathroom which flooded whenever we had a shower.
Food was adequate as the cook did try .
If Barefoot wants to encourage travellers to stay here I suggest they try to make some improvements to their accommodation as do not consider Barefoot good value for money .
Staff were friendly .
