And no wonder no one wanted them. Shared bathroom facilities with no hot water (and we were at 5,000m asl --- oops, that should have read 5,000ft, as has been pointed out to me: 1,560m). The shower head was missing. Bathroom was basic cement in tones of grey, with no working light. No bed sheets, no curtains, no towels, no nothing...
Someone had bashed a hole in the bedroom wall. Someone - perhaps the same person - had written in lettering half a metre high above my bed: FUCK OFF. I shared the sentiment. (Mind you, the view out of the window was stunning.)
And then there's Borneo Rainforest Lodge, where I have just spent a couple of glorious days:
|View from the verandah dining area|
|My balcony jacuzzi...|
|One of the chalets|
|River view from my balcony|
|Another view from my balcony|
|The main lodge building overlooking the river|
Sipping my early morning coffee, I drink it all in... Yep, it's all worth it.
*Not, I hasten to add, the same site as the one pictured above!
