Sutera Sanctuary Lodges 2010

Climbers who wish to climb Mt. Kinabalu, must secure a bed at any of the following resthouses: Laban Rata Resthouse, Gunting Lagadan Hut, Waras Hut, or Panar Laban Hut. Permit to climb Mt. Kinabalu will only be issued by Sabah Park when one has secured a bed on the day of climb. These places are heavily booked throughout the year, it is advicible to book six months ahead to avoid any disappointment.

Kinabalu Park also has lodges and hostels for those people who just want to enjoy the cool mountain air and peaceful environment. One can easily spend a day or two to explore the many trials around the park, and check out the fauna and flora of Kinabalu park.

Mesilau Nature Resort has an unique forest setting unlike any other, as the resort is literally built into the forest, with the minimum felling of trees. Tall trees can be seen right at the door step of the many lodges in Mesilau nature Resort.

Most climbers will come to Poring Hot Spring after conquering the Majestic Mt. Kinabalu. Soaking at the sulphur enriched hot spring of Poring is an ideal antidot for smoothing the aching legs of the many climbers. Hostels and Lodges are available for rental.

For the sun and beach lover one can plan to stay at the Manukan Island Resort. Manukan Island is only about 15 minutes by boat from Kota Kinabalu jetties. Manukan Island, with its crystal clear water and corals, is a great place for snorkelling and scuba diving and many species of tropical fish can be seen here. Or one can just laze away at the white sandy beaches of Manaukan Island.
