Whenever you plan to stay at this resort make sure you do 2 important things, i.e. book way in advance as this place is extremely popular and booked out fast & ask for rooms facing the Mount Kinabalu as nothing beats waking up to such great views of the majestic mountain before the clouds cover the summit. The weather is... More

Our tour group arrived in the dark after a long mountain drive from Sandakan with little explanation about the location either by our guide or within our room. Fortunately, we woke early enough to see Kinabalu from a side window before the summit was lost under heavy clouds. Our room was very, very basic and appeared to be newly painted... More

This is a very nice, quaint property. Set just off the highway, accommodation is basically wooden cabins but these are spacious, clean and well maintained. Most have great views of Kinabalu. The bathrooms are clean though the water pressure can be low. Much care has been taken to ensure that the property is well maintained with flower beds bursting with... More

The morning view is good due to most of the room's balcony are facing Mount Kinabalu. Its a nice place to relax and wind down for a day. Weather is chilly all the time. Room furniture a bit dated but bathroom is renovated. maybe its time for the management to consider refurbish the room's furniture and deco as well.

Quiet place to just sit back and relax. Nothing fancy here but you do get variety of meal selection from the various establishment around the area. Point to note here, you may need to choose which room to get in order to get a good view of the mountain.
