FOUNDER'S MESSAGE

Welcome to Sukau Rainforest Lodge - Saving Paradise

Dear Eco-Travelers,

Mr Albert Teo
Mr Albert Teo

Sukau Rainforest Lodge (SRL) was born from our vision of creating a complete ecotourism experience. It was built in 1995, with the mission to excel as an ecolodge by providing a unique experience in hospitality, interpretation, conservation with local community participation and leadership development.

The majority of our staff in SRL is local and since its humble beginning in 1995, their families were lifted out of poverty through our capacity building and training programs, and various business opportunities that were created. Do speak to our staff, and learn about their culture. They may be a bit shy and their English are not perfect, but they are very charming.

Since the Lodge’s opening in 1995, SRL together with our sister company Borneo Eco Tours (BET) operate a non-governmental organisation “Borneo Ecotourism Solutions and Technologies” or BEST Society (formerly known as Sukau Ecotourism Research and Development Centre, SERDC) and initiated several community, medical, education and environmental projects including the KWICORP tree planting project.

As part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility, we set aside RM 4.00 per adult of every international guest who stays with us to BEST Society. (In addition, BET contributes RM 8.00 per guest). This fund is set aside regardless of whether we make profit or not. As of July 2014, a total of RM 1,223,782.99 were raised for BEST Society with about 56% of the funds generated internally (RM 245,537.08 (20%) from Sukau Rainforest Lodge, and RM 442,035.00 (36%) from Borneo Eco Tours) to implement community and environmental projects

We adhere to the environmental codes of responsible tourism of World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) and PATA's Green Leaf program. Please read our in-house Green Policies and more information about Sukau Rainforest Lodge (SRL) to help you in planning a memorable holiday and get the most out of your stay.

Sincerely,

Albert C.K. Teo
