It was in the year 2009 that some investors decided to build a green and environmental friendly resort in the forest along the Kinabatangan river. Building works started in February 2010 consisting mainly 6 chalets, 1 restaurant, 1 office building, 1 observation tower and a water rack. Setting out the lodge was important as we only felled small trees (less than 3.5 inches) to make way for the buildings and taking extra care not to disturb the natural biodiversity of the area. This is why the chalets are built under or beside the larger trees. As far as possible the building materials used were either biodegradable, enviroment friendly or recycleable. An existing elephant path has also been preserved and crossing retained should the elephants decide to pass by.
