Kinabalu Pine Resort

The stay at Kinabalu Pine Resort at Kundasang during Sabah Trip

The Kinabalu Pine Resort is our first night’s accommodation during our trip in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.  After eating delicious fish noodle at Fatt Kee Fish Mixed at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, we took around 2 hours to reach the resort.  Why it took so long to reach this resort?  It is because Kinabalu Pine Resort is situated near the Mount Kinabalu.

Kinabalu Pine Resort is a multi-award winning & privately run accommodation that caters to budget-conscious travelers.  All of their cabins have wide open porches that are facing the Mount Kinabalu.  But the most important for me, is the nice cold weather and I can use my new jacket bought from Taiwan.

The weather is not so good on the day we arrived.  As you can see the Mount Kinabalu is covered by dark clouds.  It start to rains a little after this.  But lucky us the weather on the next day is the best.  Continue to read to find out about Mount Kinabalu’s view from here.

One of the cabin here.  According to the websites, all the wooden cabins here are fully built using the exclusive Selangan Batu hardwood.  It sure looks tough.

There is a rabbit house here but it is just a small hut with a few rabbits.  Not really worth the time if you have seen a rabbit before.

A cabin with glass walls.  Looks classy but this one is not ours, so I cannot show the inside of the cabin.

Wooden chairs for you to sit and enjoy the scenery in the cold weather.  It is really cold here like Cameroon Highlands and it gets super cold at night.  So don’t forget your leather jacket if you plan to visit Kinabalu Pine Resort.

Kinabalu Pine Resort is a really nice place to stay in Kota Kinabalu.  But it is far from other place so we only stayed here for 1 night and we moved to the city part of Kota Kinabalu for the next few days.
