From mountain climbing, exploring nature’s valley, and diving into the marine world; these are all the sites that you can explore when you stay with us. Also sail out to sea to enjoy magnificent sunsets from our catamaran, Amazing Love, or perhaps a tailor-made dive charter to dive and marvel at the wealth of Sabah’s Tropical sea life.

Your serendipitous adventure starts now!

Experience climbing Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia's highest mountain protected by UNESCO as it carries the world's most important biological sites.

Mount Kinabalu also known as “Aki-nabalu” given by the local Kadazandusuns is Malaysia’s highest mountain standing mightily at 4,095 meters above sea level. It is protected by UNESCO for its surrounding the world’s most important biological sites. There are between 5000 to 6000 species of plants, 326 species of birds and more than 100 mammalian species identified along climbing the mountain in different altitude. Climbing Mount Kinabalu can be achieved as long you have the good physical condition and guided by accredited guides at all times due to Sabah Park’s regulations and may experience altitude sickness, especially those who have not conquered any mountain.
