Borneo Nature Tours also operates the award-winning Borneo Rainforest Lodge nestled in a magnificent setting alongside the Danum River flowing through Sabah's largest protected Lowland Rainforest - Danum Valley Conservation Area with 43,800 hectares of pristine and undisturbed tropical flora and fauna in the eastern part of Sabah.  This pristine rainforest is also home to more than 340 species Birds, 120 species of Mammals, 72 species of Reptiles, 56 species of Amphibians and a staggering 200 species of plants per hectare.

From Borneo Rainforest Lodge, we feature adventure treks into the Maliau Basin Conservation Area which is deemed the “Lost World” of Sabah.
Borneo Nature Tours also offers a new and exciting 4WD tour filled with educational and cultural experiences.  In the course of this exciting tour, we will collaborate with designated local schools in the remote areas where we offer our guests the opportunity to interact with our local people and intricate with charitable community projects as part of the tour.


This way, our guests are not just passing through but actually making a difference!

The award - winning Spa "Traditional Signature Treatments" is now available

The award-winning JariJari SPA JariJari Spa , Borneo’s first and most respected traditional spa, is looking forward to sharing the traditions and wisdom passed down through the generations by offering a completely new experience with relaxing and rejuvenating therapies that are distinctively Bornean.

Their indigenous therapists, whose training includes modern spa techniques and sensitivity towards other cultures, work with the finest local products. Furthermore, they bring a secret element to JariJari’s Borneo Massage. While accustomed to dealing with an international clientele, our therapists retain the genuine warmth and empathy that is a distinctive element of their own culture, ensuring that their massage comes not just from the hands but also from the heart.
