Kinabalu Pine Resort is a wonderful resort at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah for its amazing views and cold weather. This resort is our first night’s accommodation during our trip in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. From this resort, we get the view of Mount Kinabalu. Reads on to find out about our review of this resort.
After eating delicious fresh 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.
Cabin at Kinabalu Pine Resort
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 better. Do continue to read to find out about Mount Kinabalu’s view from here.
One of the cabin here at Kinabalu Pine Resort . The garden is so well maintained. According to the websites, all the wooden cabins here are fully built using the exclusive Selangan Batu hardwood. The wood sure looks tough and pretty for a cabin.
The cabins and gardens here are well-maintained
A cabin with glass walls in the Kinabalu Pine Resort. Looks classy but this one is not ours, so I wonder how is the inside view of the cabin. I think the price should be more expensive than other cabins.
The next morning, the weather is so good. So, must take a nice photo with laupoh. Yes, that is the Gunung Kinabalu at the back. Taking photo with Mount Kinabalu is the must do activity here at Kinabalu Pine Resort.
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 jacket if you plan to visit Kinabalu Pine Resort.
Kinabalu Pine Resort must do: take many photos with Mount Kinabalu and pine trees.
Kinabalu Pine Resort is a really nice place to stay in Kota Kinabalu. We hope to stay for more nights, but it is far from other places, so we only stayed here for 1 night We moved to the city part of Kota Kinabalu for the next few days to continue our Sabah trip journey.
Coming up next from our Sabah trip, we went for cows sighting and cow milking at Desa Cattle Dairy Farm. Desa Cattle Dairy Farm is another amazing place in Sabah, Malaysia!
