Bayu Lodge Tinompok is a bungalow style rest house that caters for those holiday goers who demand a budget accommodation. Located just 500 metres before the entrance to Kinabalu Park, this is also an idea place for a good night sleep before climbing the majestic Mt. Kinabalu. Since the lodge is built just beside the main road, coaches and buses can easily drop off the guests by the road side. Talk about convenience, a restaurant with the same name as the lodge is situated just beside it. The interior of the lodge can be best described as basic and clean. Types of rooms available are single room, standard twin bed, double bed, family, and dormitory. The beds here are decorated with a nice purple colour bedding. For special function or big group travelling, guests can rent the entire house for a special price. Note: This is not a home stay, even though the wording “homestay” is written on the signboard.
