TravelPod Member ReviewsMount Kinabalu Heritage Resort & Spa Ranau
It's tucked in a quiet corner of Ranau town, located about 15 minutes' drive from the Kinabalu Park. The rooms are quite spacious with attached bathroom and plenty of hot water. The furnishings are a bit old, but what matters to me is that it is clean and comfortable. There is a well-kempt garden, and a spa within the hotel compound. Food is nothing special, just okay. I wouldnt mind staying here again.

A sleep in this morning. Woke at 8.30 with a bit of a hangover. Bloody Arak!! Coffee and breakfast to start the day.

... We finally find a "cafe" that sells beer but nothing else, no food, no lemon ice for me. They do go buy a bottle of lemon tea from next door for me. This is very much a Muslim community and alcohol is hard to find. But of course my nose sniffs out where to buy a bottle of vodka in a supermarket to add to my ice lemon. We end up down on the waterfront for a beer and ice lemon, with my own special ...
... 10pm, all for £700. Mum thought she had come to an old persons nursing home as when we arrived they were doing chair-aerobics and running around the room, those would could run, the average must have been about 70!
They were very friendly and found us tobe as much amusing and came and chatted to us all.
Views up the mountain and down into the Valley were amazing - check out the ...
... It turns out that the first days climb is 8km in length, 1500m in vertical ascent (to 3296m), and is almost entirely made up of steps. As you can imagine, the burning in your quads, calves, gluts and just about everything else was like nothing else. Thankfully, the calibre of people attempting the climb was so much worse than us, that we were able to take some reassurance that if we were struggling, they were worse! We ...
