We are a couple with 3 teenage kids. After a hectic 4 days of sea and water activities at KK city we decided to go 'up the Hills' for a few days of relaxation. Mount Kinabalu is an hour and a half drive from the coastal city of KK (Kota Kinabalu). Its at a high altitude and the weather is cool and pleasant. The up hill drive is quite safe with fairly good roads.But there are only limited places to stay here. You should search for places to stay at KUNDASANG and RANAU - two small towns around mount Kinabalu.A large number of tourists comming here are adventure seekers planning a climb to mount Kinabalu
All the hotels here are in the 2 to 3 star range judging by the facilities provided. The tariffs can be quite stiff especially during holidays and peak seasons.Please do not expect anything beyond 3 star Amenities even in the best of places.
Pine Villa resort is made up of wooden "hillside Lodges" built along the slope of a hill with decent views of Mount Kinabalu. Quite spartan, but clean,quiet and peaceful.. There is a single restuarant which is small ,clean and serves decent food. Off peak seasons, meals are included in the room tariffs!!! Please confirm during booking.
