Despite many negative comments, we still choose the resort, as we r coming in three and this is the only resort i found that could add extra bed. Stunning mountain view from the resort and u are able to enjoy the cooling weather. The food in the restaurant, so so, but since this is the only resort available at that... More

After visiting the Hot springs, the Dairy farm and taking a short trek around the base of the Mountain, our room Ixora 12 provided the most basic facilities.

It is located in Kundasang, the nearest small town from Kinabalu National Park. It is serene and away from the crowds in Kinabalu National Park. You can see the majestic Mount Kinabalu from almost all the rooms, although not direct. The open space car park outside the reception building offers plenty of view for the mountain too. There is also... More

Food was terrible. the only attraction here is the local KFC which is so oily the you can easily fill a cup up if you hold the chicken above the cup. Disgusting. All KFCs if Malaysia are the same. Theres nothing else apart... More

However, only the view worth the stay, the rest is just a nightmare for me, restaurant is lousy, choice of food are limited and expensive, taste is so so only. The room is bad, imaging you have the... More

Have a nice view at Mt.Kinabalu. I lived in a house which have double room with jacuzzi. Breakfast is included but not buffer style. This place is a bit ''dirty'', my 4 years old son crying the whole night during sleeping.....

Totally disappointing place, absolutely no value for your money. Feels like staying in cheap motels with cheap beds. Regretted and deeply embarrassed bringing my family for holidaying here. Can't take a decent bath as the water was very smelly, like it was taken from a drain. Positive side. 1. Nice view. Negative points. 1. Smelly water, can't bath or make... More
