Kinabalu Hill Lodge

10 en suite cabins nestled in the wildlife-rich Kinabalu National Park

Kinabalu Hill Lodge

Kinabalu Hill Lodge consists of 10 en suite cabins nestled in the wildlife-rich Kinabalu National Park. The lodge sits at an altitude of 1, 585m above sea level with easy well-marked trails leading out from the lodge straight into the national park. Each cabin is within walking distance of the park headquarters and restaurant.

The restaurant at Kinabalu Hill Lodge serves excellent traditional Malay and international cuisine.

The cabins are quite basic but have comfortable beds and a spacious living area with a cable TV and attractive parquet flooring. They are located on the side of a hill with far-reaching views across to the rainforest: the summit of Mount Kinabalu can be seen on clear days.

Facilities

En suite rooms, restaurant, 24-hour electricity and cable TV.

Don’t miss the botanical gardens which contain a huge range of tropical plants and orchids, some so rare that they need to be kept under lock and key to deter collectors.

We had a great holiday because we were looked after so well. The wildlife viewing was the best possible because of the effort put into it by the guides…We saw more wildlife than we expected or had hoped for. Orang-utans in the wild as well as at Sepilok. The turtle laying and releasing was great. A heard of about 20 elephants at Sukau only feet from the boat + an amazing array of birds including some very rare ones. Also a 9’ crocodile….Danum Valley was amazing but it is necessary to stay several nights at least to get the benefit. Overall it was a brilliant holiday.
