Staying there is such an indulgent treat with a spectacular array of Resort facilities, from choice of luxurious 5-star hotels (my choice so far is the Magellan Sutera Resort) , award-winning 27-hole Graham Marsh designed golf course to the 104-berth marina and exhilarating recreational services….

A tiny house homestay, which is quite tiny (not good for movement and luggage), but fun and unique as well. There are some house rules like no shoes in door (yet no safe place to keep shoes..
就是我们这次入住的三人房 Incredible Hut 啦！ 虽然说房间很小，但是最棒的就是这间房有一个露天的小阳台，不用和其他人挤，从房间走出去就是了。拥有超棒的视野，拍照起来也很美！！ 因为接近考试这次我懒得出门，就泡了咖啡，在阳台上一面享用、一面享受美丽的风景、一面看书，就这样在寒舍度过了悠闲的时光，超赞的
这次在Kundasang夜宿，忍不住订了我想了三年之久的民宿Little Hut寒舍！三年前无意间在网站看到Little Hut照片便情投意合，心都给深陷下去了... 向来是Vintage控的我，对这种带有乡村风的民宿完全是我的心头好... 任何人都不需要告诉我它有多好或多美，我心里已默默喜欢得无可自拔...

Salah satu aktiviti yang aku rangka semasa berkunjung ke Kota Kinabalu ni adalah ke Bungaraya Island Resort yang terletak di Pulau Gaya.
A nice hotel within Kinabalu Park. Basic, but nice and comfortable. The free breakfast is very good as well. Free water refill station available.
Generally, Sutera Sanctuary Lodges offers 11 types of accommodation and I booked the Garden Lodge - a two-storey accommodation comes with 2 luxurious bedrooms and both rooms attached with its own bathroom. The moment when I opened the door, my jaw-dropping by just glanced through the brightly coloured living room polished with wooden floors. Cause we went in December last year which is the month of Christmas, there's a Christmas decoration at the fireplace and this setting making the whole place seems like we're in Western countries. Awww, I begin to love this place.
All things considered, it was an enjoyable stay at Sutera Sanctuary Lodges. The only first world problem is the fact that there's no Wi-Fi connection inside any of the rooms.
Start your day with a hearty breakfast to start a day of leisurely activities at the Sunbird cafe which is located at the centre of the resort and is inter-connected with timber boardwalk to your lodges. For dinner, you can either order ala-carte of taking a dip in the buffet selections of the day.
Each lodge offers either a twin-bedded or double-bedded airconditioned room with en-suite bathroom with hot water shower, ceiling fan which comes with private balcony overlooking hillside forest or the Lipad river. You get to enjoy the natural environment with a comfortable place to stay in the wilderness.
Reasons to visit: pretty resort in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park; good range of nature activities; great culinary journeys; a holiday that is clearly influenced by the local environment (it’s not one of those hotels where you could be anywhere in the world, but a true local experience); and of course, the splendid Spa Village!
Reasons to visit: being a morning person and more of an introvert, my favourite experience was the Sunrise Picnic; if traveling with family or a group of friends, the Sinagang Steamboat is a must.
Verdict You have to come lar, at least try it once. It is really a super duper cool experience. My recommendations are to stay a night here and another night probably camp at Tegudon for stargazing experience. Alternatively, is to camp at Tembara to enjoy another beautiful sunset. Ish… banyak pulak option, macam nil ah… make sure you stay at least 5 days in Kota Kinabalu (outskirt included). Supaya tidak menyesal kemudian hari.
The dorm starts from RM45 (as of Oct 2019) and traveller has the option to select either dorm room (4, 6 or 8 per room, female/male/mix), as for studio double or twin, the price ranges from RM150 per room (for 2 pax, I have googled and noticed that you can get lower price from other website on promo). For that amount of comfort, I highly recommend Too Jou.
A Diver's Hideaway. This hotel is a diver's dream. It's for serious divers who want to explore the oceanic depths of the Coral Triangle off the Coast of Mabul Island ...
We knew we wanted to go to Sipadan. We knew the high end resorts were out of our league, price-wise. Researcher that I am, I think I looked at every single option. To dive Sipadan, most people stay on Mabul Island. The only other island near to the Sipadan dive sites is Kapalai, but the…
