Mesilau Mountain Retreats met my expectations and beyond. The area is stunning, so peaceful and feels like an escape above the clouds. The homes overlook Mount Kinabalu and is the perfect spot to see every detail with your own eyes. With binoculars you can see the people hiking in the early morning! Mount Kinabalu is majestic and amazing. The homes itself are beautiful, spacious and clean. It had all the mod cons I could have needed and even a selection of books and yoga mat to have a morning of retreat on the balcony. I stayed in the Agapanthus Villa which has clearly been designed with luxury and comfort it mind. It is well worth staying here to enjoy all the Borneo's nature has to offer with beautiful gardens and flowers in the area too. Mesilau Mountain Retreats actually has a neighboring strawberry farm too with an option for strawberry picking!
The pictures are realistic to what you can find and do not do the place justice! To be here and experience the surrounding area was better than I can imagine.
The food items to purchase were really handy as I didn't buy any rice and I was appreciative of the option to "take a break" and treat myself!
Love all that Mesilau Mountain Retreats shares with its guests. It really is an amazing place to retreat and a what a region of Borneo to discover!
