The Kinabalu Pines Resort is situated just after Kundasang town, a small township at the foot of Mount Kinabalu. We stayed for a night here during our recent working trip to Kundasang and Ranau, another small town about 15 km away. The Pines Resort is made up of numerous chalet type accommodations, with colonial impressive and beautiful design. Each chalet... More

On recent trip back to Sabah I was travelling with my parent's (in August). We stayed at the Pine Resort twice. The first week was all clouded in. But the second week the weather was better and we did another drive from Kota Kinabalu and got to see the Mountain (the road is very good). Both times we stayed in... More

Yes, it's a peaceful location and if there's no mist or cloud, there are striking views of Mount Kinabalu and / or the national park. The rooms are chalet style within a pretty environment. They're generously sized, clean and furnished in a colonial theme with wooden floors. I think all rooms had a deck or veranda from which to enjoy... More

I didn't manage to get a room with that view. But the observation deck in the resort has the most amazing view of the glorious Mount Kinabalu. The room was clean and well-maintained. Overall, it was a good experience staying with KPR. Do visit the mini rabbit house because the rabbits are super adorable. And ask for a mountain view... More

I was here last year during our trip. Kundasang is like a small town (and have KFC here) located at the bottom of Mount Kinabalu. The room is comfy. I like their bed. And the design is like British design. No need aircond here cuz its really cold already. And the view was superb. You have to stay here if... More

Ignore the bad comments. The rooms are really clean and tidy. Lovely environment with a breathtaking view of the mountains. This place is just beautiful. No other resorts around the area that could be compared with this. Don't forget to visit the rabbit farm! They provide you with food to feed the rabbits. Staff here is really friendly and helpful!...

Just run away from the city, and rejuvenate yourself here... Amazing sunrise and sunset view of Mount Kinabalu... Block P units provide the best view... Local life here is so serene... Long and winding road to go around but with views so amazing, you just don't care...

Refund was made immediately on our part. Regret on slow process due to merchant card systems upgrading issue which was beyond our control. This has been our first encounter of such. Rest assure of our standard of services. We appreciate patience and understanding. More

The best thing about this place is the view of the mountain and it is on the main road. The rooms are not too big and food is not too great. It takes time to check in and there is no concierge service. But the view from the place more than compensates for the above negatives. The national park and... More

One of several lodges recommended by our mountain climbing tour operator, this was a very pleasant place to stay. The sunrise views of the mountain were quite beautiful. The resort consists a numerous multi-room cottages--each room with it's own outside entrance. Our cottage had a spacious shared deck looking out over the valley and mountain beyond. The alcohol-free restaurant had... More
