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...

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...

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,...
