Surrounded by nature with mangrove paths, Nipah Resort is a retreat place to get away from busy hostels and lodges. Best kept secret in Borneo....
The view from each rooms are overlooking to a pure serenity of a low land forest. It is like being part of a scene from National Geographic rainforest. Walking distance to the primates and fire-flies at night like a Christmas tree lighting. Hospitable staff, passionate owner and great food!
