From the exterior the place looks like a nice place and when I was inside it definitely live up their 'resort' status. Rooms are clean, simple and tidy. Your room essentials are provided and complementary (no toothbrush). there's even free wifi for every block and you can connect without the need for a password. My only complain would be that I wished the blankets were thicker or there was a duvet/comforter because it is really cold at night. Or you can wear socks cos I forgot to bring mine.
Food at the restaurant is just average and nothing to shout about. However, there is a patio below the bar which my family and I chilled out at with a bottle of red wine for RM50.
But the highlight of the stay is the magnificent view of Mount Kinabalu at sunrise and sunset. And when you're not too tired and if the skies are clear, catch the starry lit skies.
I enjoy my stay here and would definitely like to stay here one day after hiking Mount Kinabalu. So I can look at the Mountain and say that I was up that beauty.
