Hotel Overview


Adjacent to the breathtaking Tanjung Puting National Park in the lush Borneo rainforest, home to a whole host of wildlife.

Rooms at Rimba Lodge

Rimba Lodge has a number of rooms positioned in timber-clad lodges on elevated pavilions, connected by a series of sprawling walkways. The rooms have king-sized beds and hot water, which isn’t always a given in this remote area. Covered verandas lead to the edge of the gentle Sekonyer River.

Food and Facilities

The lodge has its own restaurant, which serves up Indonesian and Western specialties. As night falls you might even be lucky enough to dine with fireflies. Drinks in the nearby lounge are a great place to unwind after a hard day of trekking. Alternatively, a trip from your room along the local ‘bird walk’ allows you to soak up all the sounds of the jungle. Friendly staff are on hand to organise all your excursions and may even throw in a handy packed lunch or two.

Activities at Rimba Lodge

Adventurers will enjoy travelling by klotoks (traditional wooden boats), to the feeding stations of Camp Leakey, where you can see orangutans and crocodiles in their natural habitat. A night safari provides the perfect opportunity to see tarsiers, lizards, gibbons and even glowing mushrooms.
