Reviewed July 29, 2013

Lets make one thing clear. There is very little reason to sleep in Kota Belud. It was on our way to a resort and we thought it would be a nice place to see the sunrise and the Mount Kinabalu. But that was a bit of a disappointment because the hill doesn't give a good view because of the trees and bushes.
