Sutera Sanctuary Lodge at Kinabalu National Park

I'm happy to see that the charm of the little town Kundasang has resonated with SO many over the years. With the majestic Mt Kinabalu as its setting, Kundasang enjoys it vigorous economy among the locals and tourists. I always suggest Kundasang to everyone because it's a cross between the highlands and the nature, and Mt Kinabalu Park is Malaysia's first UNESCO Heritage Site. With so much richness, history and charm, it's almost impossible for a small town like Kundasang not to find its way to the hearts of repeat tourists and locals alike.

My favourite thing about the journey up to Kundasang?

These local vendors along the way that sell delicious local fruits or foods and this breathtaking view of the valleys and the hills! Whenever we locals visit Kundasang, we always buy their fresh produce like fresh vegetables, chillies, flowers.


I had to visit Kundasang/ national park over one weekend in September for work and were lucky to have been given the opportunity to stay in one of the more luxurious resort in Kundasang - under the Sutera Sanctuary Lodge. These quaint resorts / villas were built so beautifully and each has its own uniqueness.

The view has a full frontal view of the Mt Kinabalu and it's peak, and is done up with its own heater, separate seating area, coffee tea facilities, heater, and just the most comfortable bedding.

They even have a fire place! Charlene and I got so excited over the fire place that we eventually asked the guys to light it up while we were chilling at Bevern's place. It was so magical, like Christmas we could only imagine!

Because it was only between Charlene and I we each took one room. I had the queen bed all to myself while she decided on one of the bunk bed. AH. I already imagined having kids around the house enjoying themselves. The rooms were delightful, they had bath robes, their coffee tea facilities, bathrooms were heated, they had the complete toiletries, a dining table facing Mt Kinabalu - OMAGAD everything was spectacular!

I was informed this beautiful place cost about MYR 600 - MYR 800 per night, but if you could share this with a few more, I'm pretty sure you could save so much more!

It was so misty during our stay, so completely different from being in mainland KK!
