Kinabalu Hill Lodge
Kinabalu Hill Lodge consists of 10 en suite cabins nestled in the wildlife-rich Kinabalu National Park. The lodge sits at an altitude of 1, 585m above sea level with easy well-marked trails leading out from the lodge straight into the national park. Each cabin is within walking distance of the park headquarters and restaurant.
The restaurant at Kinabalu Hill Lodge serves excellent traditional Malay and international cuisine.
The cabins are quite basic but have comfortable beds and a spacious living area with a cable TV and attractive parquet flooring. They are located on the side of a hill with far-reaching views across to the rainforest: the summit of Mount Kinabalu can be seen on clear days.
En suite rooms, restaurant, 24-hour electricity and cable TV.
The park has an extremely high biodiversity, including a large number of endemic species, and habitats ranging from humid lowland rainforest through to oak and chestnut forests and sub-alpine montane forest. There are over 700 orchid species, 600 species of fern (including many tree ferns), 600 species of butterfly and 326 species of bird including the mountain serpent-eagle and the wreathed hornbill.
Guided walks in the Kinabalu National Park and Botanical Gardens. For the more adventurous, hikes to the summit of Mount Kinabalu can be arranged. The Poring Hot Springs are also nearby offering natural warm baths and a canopy walkway.
Don’t miss the botanical gardens which contain a huge range of tropical plants and orchids, some so rare that they need to be kept under lock and key to deter collectors.
