Hard to find the location of the hotel. If rainy day, suggest park at the retreat centre there.”
The hotel placed very high and we cannot go up use Myvi. No staff help us and we need to climb up to find people. The number that given at soda website cannot be reach or nobody pick up the phone. Lastly we give up to Tay day and force to find another hotel to stay.

Overall everything is nice. But the road need to be maintained because it is hilly, bumpy, slippery & a lot of sharp cornering. Need to install guard rail at the cornering, install street lamp or blinkers to avoid accident due to road conditions with the thick fog.

This lodge isn't for everyone as there is nothing to do except enjoying the beautiful fauna and flora on the deck of the beautiful wooden house. The accomodations are super basic and they only serve vegetarian food but I think that you may use there kitchen/bbq if you want to cook yourself. Accomodations are basic and there is no WIFI and bad cell phone reception. The park entrance is approx 2km/30min walk and some fitness is required if you have to carry your luggage from the main road to the accomodation, it is approx 1km on a hilly road. They can also arrange transport to the park if necessary (20myr) People who love it quite and natural will love it here!

Clean and serene”
Stayed here for two nights in early May 2018 after hiking the summit trail. Will definitely stay here again if/when I return. Clean, peaceful and, being at the end of a ~1km long side ride up a small valley, with an incredible amount of local bird and insect life to be entranced by. Very friendly and helpful ladies run the place, and speak both Bahasa and English. The lodge is a nice, simple wooden structure with hardwood floors throughout, and kept very clean. Rooms simple, clean. I had a "Japanese room" with mattresses directly on the wood floor. Wall socket for charging devices. Being highland Borneo, I was surprised by the hot water in the showers. Electricity is available from ~4pm all night until mid-morning (was still on both mornings when I left at 8am). No internet. Bonus for biology lovers: the bewildering diversity of Kinabalu's moths seem to be encouraged to hang out in the long bathroom and shower block, as the windows are left open and lights on during the night.

Disapponted with the surrounding”
I have been here last few years..the view for last time I went is superb amazing and beautiful..feels like I want to take picture all place all corner and even in the road to this lodge bcause of the cleanliness of the surrounding thats why I decide to go again.. When we arrive..I feel dissapointed with the surrounding..bushes all around the lodge..no one maintain the outside area..our plan on 1st night is doing bbq..luckily no snakes show up 😅 And also please add a rock/stone or whatever on the road so its easy for car to go up and down to this lodge Staff very helpful and inside lodge cleanliness is maintain as before..we feel like home staying here except for the outside area 😏...maybe will be back again.. We love this place so please maintain the outside cleanliness..cut all the grass and clear all the bushes.. Thanks to the KML staff for the good treatment!! see you again next time

Nice Forest experience but way too far from everything and no internet”
You'll have some quiet time over there and it's nice to just see the view over the forest while listening to the noises. But the stuff is not pretty active, the road there is bad and you won't have internet connection on your phone and no wifi. Definitely try the porridge there!

It's a little further inside with a steep slope up to the property. Some car services (like the bus & van especially) may not drive you in so you'd have to walk all the way up. It'll be a bit of a hike.

The price is cheap but the room is really small. You can listen to the foot steps of other people walking around the house. However, the staff are friendly and nice. They allow us to cook (we brought our own utensils and cooking equipment) and we had fun barbecuing. I might will consider coming back one day but not during the high season, maybe during their low season when there are lesser people. So that we can utilize the veranda for barbecuing and cooking! HAHA!

Nice place for nature lover,fresh air”
The place is homey and good for those who prefer nature setting view, but its very troublesome to reach the place as the road is steep and slippery,not to mention large pot holes and sharp road turn,a big no no if you drive a compact car, advice is you park your car at kinabalu park and take taxi (which will cost you at least rm20 per trip)..and as for food,you better pack up as there very limited selection with much higher price..
