Our visit was very disappointing considering the amount of money paid to stay here. The exterior looked nicely maintained. However, the interior is an entirely different matter. Cheap looking furniture, extremely dirty jacuzzi tub, leaking shower, funny smell in the toilet. Not worth the money. Would not recommend staying here.

This was the worst experience of my tour in Sabah. The rooms were basic, the bathroom dirty, the shower leaked all over the bathroom, there was no fridge in the sweltering conditions. The restaurant had a captive audience as there was nowhere else to go. The food was basic and just passed for edible. I would not recommend this place... More

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. My only gripe was the management had 'forgotten' to inform their gardener to keep the noise down. We checked in at 1400hrs but on the hillside, there was an enthusiatic grass cutter... More

This has got to be the most lousy hotel that i ever stayed.. The room was dark as there was not enough lights and the furniture was old and worn out. The toilet has a smell and its flooring was in a bad shape with stains on every corners. Next the jacuzzi was not functioning. I tried to call the... More

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

Booked here for 3 days. it was so bad that I left the next day. No refunds. 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

the view is super nice, resort is just next to Mt.Kinabalu where you can actually see the peak clearly in the morning.

The room is bad, imaging you have the... More

View is amazing. With a good management can be a good hotel but... Rooms are OK if the price is cheaper. Restaurant is halal so no beer for you. Hotel is halal so.... No beer also. No fridge, no wardrobe, no big TV, no ac into the room. Our night that we stay wind was very strong so a lot... More
