Abai Jungle Lodge, Malaysia* or similar

The 24 rooms are of a nice size, with a ceiling fan (no air-conditioning), mosquito netting on the windows and a private bathroom with a hot shower. The walls and floors are polished wood and the ceilings painted white for a light overall effect. A fabulous feature is the stilted wooden platforms that extend into the jungle for great wildlife viewing any time of the day, and inquisitive primates are known for coming right up to the rooms. The open air restaurant is a population lunch spot with locals and a great chance to meet them. There is also a bar. The lodge is generator run and although the electricity is 24 hours, it does sometimes cut out – adding to the authenticity and excitement of the trip we think.
