Sukau Rainforest Lodge was born from the vision of Albert Teo, President and Founder of Borneo Eco Tours of the complete ecotourism experience. As Albert observed “an ecotour without a good ecolodge is not complete”. So he undertook to build a lodge that would provide great wildlife watching experiences and become a base of operations for the Kinabatangan area while also demonstrating sustainable building and operating principles.
Opened in May 1995, Sukau Rainforest Lodge is built on stilts using Borneo hardwood species and is completely self sufficient in water and power supply, utilising rainwater and solar energy. Electric motors are used for river safari tours to wildlife areas to minimise air and noise pollution and reduce stress to the wildlife. Every room has an attached bathroom with solar hot water shower while electricity is supplied at night by a generator set.
Sukau Rainforest Lodge is majority owned and operated by the shareholders and management of Borneo Eco Tours. The other 30% of shares in Sukau Rainforest Lodge are held by locals. The majority of staff at Sukau Rainforest Lodge (over 80%) are also locals.
Sukau Rainforest Lodge together with Borneo Eco Tours also run a not for profit Sukau Ecotourism Research and Development Centre or SERDC (2000) to manage its community and environmental projects on Kinabatangan River.
Sukau Rainforest Lodge is committed to the principle of Economic Sustainable Development and the realization of a true triple bottom line business. As such, Sukau Rainforest Lodge prides itself on being profitable yet contributing to the local community while conserving the environment that makes it all possible.
