i went with my baby boy, husband, in laws and my parents. the trail from entrance to the pool location is well kept, magnificient trees lining all way, fresh air, wood smell, a pleasant welcome for us. we chose the private pool there, costing rm15 to rm20 for 2hours (or was it 3hours? i cant remember). the 'pool' is quit small and not up to my expectation, it's made of pvc i think, with rusty water tap. i think the management can upgrade it to a better quality pool and tab.
The surau facility there is not muslimah friendly, as there is no covered ablution area and the surau smells funny.. That is another point they can look into too. Other than that, the strongest point of this place is the nature attractions, love the forest and thumbs up for everyone who kept it so well :))

If you have a lot of free time, you can indulge yourself in the poring hot spring tubs. Else, a nature walk would be good enough in the park. Bring water all the time and light clothing is advisable as the temperature gets really humid inside the park, so prepare yourself to get sweaty *lol*. The downside is no pictures are allow at the canopy walk, so yea..a bit sad on that part. The good thing is the entrance ticket can be used to get into Kinabalu park.

More chance to see wildlive here than the main entrance of Kota Kinabalu reserve. Try to be early if you want to see wild live and do the kanope' quietly without screaming kids and parends. Around 11am the first bus loads arrive, but they don't do the longer hike. Mondays the butherfly garden is closed. Not many people do the hike to the second waterfalls, have to start this one before 12am. There are also places to stay in the park, but really expencive. Oposite the park is a cheap place. Arround the park are also spots to see the Raffisia flower.
The hot springs is nice after the hike but for sure not special when i was there the most pools where closed also the slides, only the badtps where open and the rock pool where you can swim a little, cold water this one. If you want to use a badtup, it takes really long before there is a tittle water in there.

If you come to enjoy the hot spring, please come early, maybe around 07:00. We made the mistake of coming around 11:00, after a visit to Desa Farm. Entrance fee was rm3 for Malaysian adult and rm1 for those under 18 years of age. For foreigners, it was rm18/rm10.
The place was simply teeming with people. All the public hot spring pools under the shade, were booked by families it appeared, because they crossed over to the other pools and mingled easily.
We rushed to book the chalets, but they too, were fully booked. What a disappointment for us, especially the 5 little ones in our group of 12.
As an alternative, the majority of us opted to continue to do the canopy walks. I chose to rest my weak knees; after having stood for an hour or so at the shaded hot spring pools, in the vain hope that some of them would vacate one, but they seemed to plan on staying there the whole day.
The canopy walk proved a success to the young ones. They enjoyed it immensely.
