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.

After the canopy walk ...
... pools heated by sulphur however the water is far too hot for people to use the natural pools.

... steep that you were consistently climbing uneven steps so proper footing was tricky. It was very neat to see the geology change along the way up. There were informative displays at each of the shelters to explain a little about the rock and the plants/trees you would see on each leg between shelters so you knew what to look out for. It took us about 3.5 hours to get to our lunch spot at the Layang-Layang shelter at 4km into our trek and 2655m. By this ...
... egg. It was so good, so much so that I was kicking myself for missing breakfast the day before. Gina was very jealous of my big bowl of soup. After breakfast we headed back up to our room to collect our stuff and then checked out. David was waiting in the lobby so we introduced ourselves. He is an older gentleman who is from Australia but apparently lives in the Philippines and is retired. Omar, Sally and Sarah met us not long after and we loaded up ...
