We had just finished a tour to Kinabalu Botanical Park and pulled into this motel style resort on the recommendation of our guide. As we walked in there were 6 women behind the counter and one guest just finishing up. Just as we moved forward this guest jumped back in and started asking questions of the staff a travel agent...

The view of Mount Kinabalu was breathtaking. Even with a tiny bit of distraction of electrical line but still it wont take the beauty away. Woke up early just for the sunrise. The rooms was just nice and since I went there withs friends the shared balcony was a blessing.

We arrived early thus gotta wait for check in. Our room verandah facing Mount Kinabalu. Such a mesmerizing view during the sunrise. Weather was cooling. Room quite small and the water pressure quite slow. Breakfast was so-so. Location is good as it is near to tourist spots.

We arranged a cab from Kota Kinabalu to the Resort for two nights, so this revise reflects the fact that we experienced the Kundasang area on foot. The resort itself is A-1 charming. The staff was extremely helpful, both on the phone prior to the trip as we were making arrangement AND on-site. We had a "full mountain view" room...

Location is awesome and the place looks like a little piece of an Alp village brought to Borneo. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Restaurant in the resort is not too bad. There is all in all nice and relaxing atmosphere in the resort.

Speechless, the morning view was breathtaking here. We can see clearly the majestic Mount Kinabalu here. Walking distance to Pekan Kundasang. Clean. Breakfast was good. Recommended for all types of visit. Room rates are reasonable if you are sharing.
