I made an unexpected stop here on my way back from Sandakan so didn't know what to expect. It is a little difficult to find, especially in the dark, so make sure you've looked at the map ahead of time or have your gps handy. You have to actually go up a dirt road that doesn't look like it'd have...

Have a good view of tea plantation and thats all. No other activities can be done except for dining at the restaurant that is quite expensive and taking pictures. Also got a souvenir shop that sells things tea-related and also quite costly

The cottage room was simple and provided everything we needed for 1 night stay. The gardens around the cottages are lovely especially if you like to watch hummingbird hawk moths feeding on the nectar on the flowers outside. The restaurant offers lovely views and of course is great place for an iced tea!

We had our own car and drove to the plantation. We had a superb educational tour of the factory in operation at 830am Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the education and excellent but short tour with Hamid. The restaurant is new and offers a superb view over the plantation, the menu is varied with Sabah tea flavoured foods like pancakes, waffles,...

Fantastic location although bumpy ride to it. We upgraded to cottage on arrival which was good, although I had expected it to be more themed around the tea. Went for look round long house as we wanted to see rooms but all doors locked. Facinating building with springy bamboo floors. Tea tour ok but would have liked to learn more,...

We booked a cottage, a little apprehensive given some of the reviews, but had an amazing time, a perfect stop over from KK to see the orang-utans at sepilok. The morning views of Mt K superb and a perfect location to explore the sights at the base of the mountain, including hot springs , war memorial and tea factory tour....

We went there during school holiday recently. Nearly 1 hour drive from Kundasang. Quite hot and not so chilled like Kundasang. Not much doing except shopping for variety of tea. Have agarwood, cinnamon, misai kucing, ginger tea and etc.

A group of us attended a guided tour of the plantation factory, tea tasting and set lunch. The factory tour was very interesting and our guide very knowledgeable. Photography is not permitted inside the factory itself, but everywhere else is ok. Sabah tea has a truly smooth taste and tastes very pure - I had not realised how different our...
