          ' A good stay '”

          It was a last minute booking on the 16th, after having a throughout research and review with other resorts available in Kundasang. Once we arrived there, we were thrilled and we were really satisfied with everything except for the Wifi but other than that, everything was great. The staffs at the Pine restaurant were really great, polite and honest. They even kept the water bottle that we accidentally left there, the previous night. Plus, the food and environment of the restaurant was great too.The staffs at the reception were great too, they were really helpful and friendly. The view from our block(B1) was beautiful, we were directly facing mountain Kinabalu. Overall, everything was great. In Shaa Allah, will surely come back to Kinabalu Pine Resort

          Overall I was very satisfied with this one night stay at Kinabalu Pine Resort. Mountain Kinabalu can be view clearly from here! If you are lucky enough and the weather is good. Weather is cold here and you can have steamboat at hotel restaurant for dinner. Enjoyed the great time chit chat with friends at hotel balcony and the chill air. Not much choice for the buffet breakfast but overall the foods taste ok. Kinabalu Pine Resort is near to Kinabalu Park and Kundasang War Memorial, just few minutes drive.

          5 out 5 rating!!”

          Totally enjoyed our 3 days 2 nights stay. The view of Mount Kinabalu right in front of our rooms made it even better!! In the morning, we had a clear view of the peak. A lot of beautiful pictures were taken. The food choices were limited but the price per person at the restaurant is pretty cheap (RM15 only!!) and fortunately, we aren't picky eaters. The fresh mango juice was amazing! Then there was the Sabah tea and the scrumptious ubi ungu goreng! The distance from here to the Desa Cattle Dairy Farm and Poring Hotspring is only about 10-15 minutes car drive. If you're looking for a place to chill out & relax & enjoy the magnificent view of the proud Mount Kinabalu, then Kinabalu Pine Resort is definitely your top choice!

          Comfortable rooms, amazing Views and very nicely landscaped.

          A nice resort conveniently located near most of the attractions in the area. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. In my opinion is is one of the most beautifully landscaped resorts in the area and it's really nice to be able to wake up in the morning to be and be greeted by all the lush greenary and tall pine trees surrounding you. Definitely has the nicest view of Mount Kinabalu on a clear morning too. Will definitely stay again at Kinabalu Pine Resort whenever I'm back in Sabah.

          Relaxing”

          In room Wi-fi, Deluxe king-bed room, large porch with a view of Mt. Kinabalu

          The Kinabalu Pine Resort is located in a great location maybe 4 miles from the Mt. Kinabalu National Park, Malaysia's first UNESCO World Heritage Site. Also, maybe 1 mile away is a large fruit and vegetable market and a small village for grocery shopping. Near the village on small hill is a memorial dedication for the Australian, New Zealand soldiers and local Malay's who died fighting an overwhelming Japanese Army in WWII. Nearby in the town of Renau is another memorial that marks the spot of the Japanese prison for Australian, New Zealand soldiers and Malay's. From this site the forced POW Death March began. A very small white sign from the road points to the site. At the resort there's a very nice view of Mt. Kinabalu from a platform close to the reception office and to the right-side of the small parking area up a short incline. Make a left turn after the reception office. Parking in front of the reception office and restaurant is not allowed. However, management does not enforce it. So, it's hard to drive pass parked Vans and Suv's that ignore the no parking sign. It's a problem management must fix. Check-in and check-out was very good. If you ask the reception folks to make a local telephone call to check on times for nearby attraction sites for the time they open and close - you'll be asked for 60-cents Ringitts per call. Not good for a Resort to charge a fee. It's another way for the Kinabalu Pine Resort to make money that we refer to in the USA as "nickel and diming." The restaurant menu is very good. Food is good and food inexpensive. No beer in the restaurant is served. It's served downstairs below the restaurant and it's very pricey. Breakfast included in the cost of the room is very good. Back-packers and guests bring their luggage inside the restaurant in the morning. Not good because tables are set up too close to each other. Folks going back and forth to the buffet breakfast were tripping on the luggage. Management should require

          stunning view of Mt Kinabalu, clean, polite and responsive staff

          Only stayed here for one night, but really enjoyed the experience. We had checked in late due to misadventures on the road, but the staff knew we were coming and were very helpful to get us settled in. The tv was faulty but they were very quick to fix the situation. The rooms were clean, the toilets were very clean, and the restaurant served some really good food as well. We even managed to get some pretty decent wine from the hotel shop. They were also able to arrange a chartered taxi for us at a very early departure the next morning to our next destination, and were super professional and efficient at doing so as well. We woke up early the next day to catch said cab, and were greeted with a breathtaking view of Mount Kinabalu. The view from the Pines is truly stunning, and what little time we spent there was totally worth it. also when the sun came up we realised how beautiful the resort actually is... flowers everywhere, nice cottagey architecture... we wish we stayed longer

          view and room

          this is a great hotel. the mt kinabalu region is a marvelous place and this hotel really helps to bring forth its best. for instance, the verandas are splendid, with many room being surrounded by pines, yet with a good view of mt kinabalu. The room is clean and decently appointed, and the bathroom seems very newly renovated. Food is good, though limited. The restaurant staff are great, very helpful. However, the front desk staff, while pretty helpful, don't seem informed about important matters like transportation. Here's a parting tip: if you want to get to mt kinabalu park, skip the hotel transport unless you have a sizable group. For individuals and couples, it's far cheaper to walk out and hire a cab at the town centre.

          Bad food. Closeup view of Kinabalu.”

          Pro: Very close by to Kundasang town and Kinabalu park, dairy farm. beautiful setting with garden all around. Majestic closeup view of Kinabalu although need to be in the right cottage. You might have no view at all. Parking is right out front. My kids loved the playground. Cons : Breakfast was horrible. No buffet just ala carte of stale and weak tasting food. No privacy. You can hear people chit chat and you have to share the cottage with people next door. I've been to celyn resort. That one is better with better full kinabalu view,better breakfast spread,closer to Ranau which is more real for local town plus cheaper.

          Spectacular view of Mount Kinabalu, Clean room and Good location

          The room is clean and the staffs are friendly and helpful. The food is just decent. Checking in & out are fast. It is suitable for family vacation. The room we stayed have a stupendous view of Mount Kinabalu. The huge mountain is right in front of the balcony. I can sit there whole morning just watching the mountain. At night we can see twinkling star lights. It is a beautiful resort. I took a few really beautiful photos from the balcony, here:

          This is my 2nd time to Kinabalu Pine Resort. We always had our dinner at their restaurant as they served Halal food and strictly no alcohol was permitted inside the restaurant.

          Cool weather. Beautiful landscaping. Nice Views.

          Our group visited Kinabalu Park and Poring Hot Springs before checking into Pine Resort. Checking in was fast and staff friendly. The rooms are clean and have comfortable beds. There are no air conditioning as the cool mountain air makes it unnecessary. It can be cold at night especially when there is rain. A nice place for a short getaway. The resort surrounding is beautifully landscaped. In the morning, one can get a majestic view of the peak of Mt Kinabalu, weather permits. The resort has a small restaurant and service can be a little slow when there are many guests. Food wise, no complain. Breakfast is basic.
