If you plan to visit KK and long to escape the city and head for the mountains then this fabulous property is for you. Terry and Rose are fabulous hosts. You will immediately feel part of the family. The views from the property are astonishing. The accommodation is everything you need. We had the Honeymoon chalet with its own kitchen.... More

Our 6YO daughter couldn't have been happier with the pool and the animals. We were in heaven, too: there aren't many evening-glass-of-wine spots in the world nicer than this one. Comfortable, lovely hospitality with a divine view, on the edge of National Park...

Sinurambi was a unique, peaceful, beautiful, and hospitable vacation spot. Rose and Terry were wonderful hosts - we loved their breakfasts and dinners each day. We thoroughly enjoyed hanging out at the pool, taking in the view, and the New Year's Eve party was a lifetime memory for our family. Hiking, touring the area, orangutans in Rasa Ria… super week...

This gem of a place is absolutely gorgeous, it's exclusive and very private yet it doesn't scream and flash in your face, a cosy and homely place. We were lucky as there were no other guests at the resort, so we had the whole place to ourselves! We love that Terry, Rose and David love animals (we enjoyed playing around... More

Wonderful place to stay with all the charm of a B&B and the facilities of a 5 star resort. What made this place most enjoyable was the welcome and hosting from the truly delightful Terry, Rose and David. If you get the chance, take it. We stayed as a group of 3 friends in the Otter House (a stand alone... More

What an amazing place. Great hosts and a view to die for which is why I would highly recommend. Nothing was to much hassle for owners or staff - great meals served with a smile. We stayed in separate cabin from house with views overlooking KK and the ocean -beautiful

I had the good fortune to stay at Sinurambi. not once but twice ! It is so different from other the hotels available at Kota Kinabalu. away from the traffic congestion and bedlam of the city, and yet only 15 - 20 minutes driving from the city. It's location near the ridge of the Crocker Range guarantees superb scenic views... More

What a wonderful stay we had at Sinurambi ! We spent there three days and three nights in this beautiful place surrounded by the jungle, on the heights of KK. From the large wooden terrace, the view to the South Chinese sea and the islands is magnificent. Rose and Terry make you feel like at home. They are so welcoming,... More

We stayed at this gem for two nights, tired and exhausted from a fabulous jungle trip. We are delighted to give Sinurmabi an "excellent" review, because it fully deserves it. Rose and Terry were excellent hosts, we loved dinner around the table with exceptional food and conversation. The views from the house are awesome, the pool lovely, the staff polite... More
