Welcome To Sutera Sanctuary Lodges

Set in the stunning natural locations and Malaysia’s first World Heritage National Park Site by UNESCO within Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia. There’s something for every holiday, from climbing Mount Kinabalu; exploring nature’s valley of Kinabalu Park & Poring Hot Springs; diving into the marine world of Manukan Island. These are all the sites that you can explore when you stay with us, and sail out to sea to enjoy magnificent Sabah’s sunset from our catamaran cruise, Amazing Love, and perhaps a tailor-made dive charter to dive and marvel at the wealth of Sabah’s, Borneo 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 in Malaysia’s highest mountain standing mightily at 4,095 meters above sea level. 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 altitudes and climbing Mount Kinabalu can be achieved as long as you have good body physical condition and guided by accredited guides at all times due to the Sabah Park’s regulations and may experience altitude sickness, especially for those who have not conquered any mountain.
