Kinabalu Park and Garden Lodge

We found a fireplace in Sabah, from Garden Lodge of Kinabalu Park.

Day 4 of our Sabah trip, after our cool Desa Cow farm tour, we drove up 1500m to Kinabalu Park (Kundasang)

Initially, we thought we will be occupying one or two rooms, not the whole bungalow! Kids wasted no time playing hide & seek.

Garden Lodge’s rate is RM3000 per night, what indulgence!

Exclusive lodges, these are the most expensive accommodation at Kinabalu Park (maps available on Amazing Borneo website). Our neighbour Submit Lodge has only one floor, but still retails at RM2000.

The English cottage feel and design, adults just want to relax and chill.

Consisting of two floors, we can choose from two bedrooms and multiple toilets. Every room comes with its own heater, no aircon needed. Temperature will drop to 15 degrees in the evenings.

Spacious Hall, but we found it too quiet in the evening. We can hear distinct cricket symphony performing in the backyard 🙂

Comfort and luxury, we can enjoy both at Garden Lodge. The highlight for the kids must be the fireplace, giving us an advance Christmas feel 🙂

Slow 10min walk to our canteen. We really do not mind as the cool weather is between 15 to 20 degrees. Breathe in more fresh air.

Simple buffet spread for your meals, at Balsam.

We visited Mount Kinabalu Botanical Garden too, a 15min walk from our bungalow.

Up close with nature, if the season is correct, you might get to visit the huge Rafflesia too.

We were blessed with good sunny weather throughout our stay in Sabah, even though it was forecasted to rain.
The good weather allows us to fully enjoy day activities in our itinerary 🙂

One of the trails displayed at Balsam, the peak is only 4000m, we can do it :p
