hiring a car and driving to mesilau nature resort

Hi

We are booked to stay at mesilau nature resort in August and finding it difficult to get transfers from kk airport to the resort.

What are the roads from the airport to mesilau, is it safe driving around and is it fairly easy to find?

Thanks

best get a GPS,since the signboards around the city do not directly indicate the route to be taken

from KK city,you need to find your way to Tuaran which leads to Tamparuli. from Tamparuli,it will be a hilly route to Kundasang. and when you reach Kundasang town,it will be another 5km drive to mesilau resort.its pretty hidden

the journey from kk will take approx 2hr

Thank you very much. Is the driving conditions ok in those areas? I have driven on langkawi previously but it was around 10 yrs ago.

The Road condition is generally ok which is mostly hilly and winding road. Mesilau Nature Resort is pretty much hidden inside the mountain but there is only 1 road in so you should be able to find it.

Indeed if you have a GPS then you'll find it no problem. But the road to Mesilau is extremely steep. During the week there is heavy traffic between KK & the Mesilau turn off with a lot of large lorry's & trucks. But if you take it slow and hire a good vehicle that can manage steep hills you'll be fine !

Well, we made it without any problems at all. Hired a car from Jeffrey Cheng car hire who is based in Kota Kinabulu, he met us at the airport and gave us the most excellent service you could ask for. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to hire a car.

The drive itself was easy and with the GPS that Jeffrey provided us with Mesilau was easy to find.

This place is tucked right out of the way half way up Mount Kinabulu, dont let this put you off, get yourself a car and head on up. Its a beautiful place to stay.
