Having lived in Singapore, Nepal, South Korea and Hong Kong, I am captivated by Asia. Having traveled to every country in Asia, and worked in luxury travel for many years, curating once-in-a-lifetime trips comes naturally to me.

Abai Jungle Lodge Overview

Abai Jungle Lodge was built entirely on stilts, perched above the Kinabatangan River. It sits deep in the Sabah interior which means the abundant wildlife can be viewed right from your doorstep. The spacious chalet-style and twin rooms are connected by boardwalks and all feature polished wood floors, netted windows, a desk, and an en-suite bathroom along with twin beds, triple beds, or a double bed. You’ll be steps from the communal restaurant on-site which serves dishes with locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There are bird-watching towers and nature walks that surround the property, providing more opportunities for wildlife watching.
