I stay at this Resort often, because the rooms are always clean and tidy, the food is very good and the staff are always friendly. The views of the surrounding countryside and mountain are breathtaking, well worth the slow drive up their short gravel lane.

Positive: 1) Amazing breathtaking view, quiet and a very nice place for a romantic vacation. 2) The rooms are clean, got balcony and you can enjoy the view anytime you want. (We book 2 rooms at Mountain View. Worth every penny!) 3) As for Muslim traveler; you can call the reception to ask for Sejadah. The room, not that spacious... More

The amazingly beautiful views make up for everything. I did not mind the rooms. We came in a group so food details in the restaurant were already pre-planned- i found food was ok. To me, nothing else mattered much as the views were beautiful. I visited once over 3 days with my friends , around 2007 thereabouts. Would love to... More

Cons: -road to resort is 80% gravel and 20% asphalt need a 4x4 or normal height car or motorbikes to enter.... More

The resort is situated at a very strategic place. If you book the Kinabalu view, the rooms are facing the mountain. Watching the morning sunrise was just breath-taking. We can also see the surrounding hills & admire the beautiful landscape of Kundasang. But the ride to the resort was horrible! We had to suffer almost 4 km of uneven road,... More

Great view of mt.kinabalu from kinabalu wing... Food in the restaurant was quite good too. Asked for an extra bed, and it's very comfy. Appliances inside the rooms were old, very limited TV channels and no phone access to the receptionist. Road access towards the resort was pretty bad tho..

Im staying there check in friday for leisure/honeymoon trip. We pick Kinabalu wing which is comfortable, room space large, breakfast provided okay. View Kinabalu Mountain is awesome, relax and fresh. Only matter and worst is route to resort, 3km which could damage your absorber/tyres. Suggest to provide pick up service from main road.

Breathtaking view! The only good thing. Very average room stay. No intercom service. Food very limited choice during my trip (weekdays). Water heater was good but if too many ppl uses the heater then get ready to bath in cold water. I would still say RM204 per night bit too pricey for the place. And yeah not to forget the... More
