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.

They are good at managing the eco system with the tourism and conserves as much as possible with little interference as possible. We had another Canopy walk, this ...
... on everyone's knees. In an attempt to minimise the pressure through the joints, the pace quickened and we descended in less than three hours what had taken us four and a half to ascend. Final standings were: Yellow Jersey (first to cross the finishing line at Timpohon Gate); Will King Of The Mountain (first to summit at Low's Peak); Oscar White Jersey (youngest climber to summit); Megan Back at Jungle Jacks, we got some more food on board. ...
