Kinabalu Rose Cabin

During the recent school/hari Raya holidays, my brother-in-law invited us to spend a night at Kundasang. I always liked the cold weather there so my wife and I agreed. He already booked a room at Kinabalu Rose cabin. I wasn't sure the exact location of the hotel, so I used GPS to locate it.

When I reached there, found out that it was located not far from Kinabalu Park. You can see Mount Kinabalu from this place which is an added bonus. Besides that, located behind the cabin are the nursery and farms(lot's of nice flowers here for macro shooters). Room rate starts from Rm70 to Rm250. We stayed at the Rafflesia room, just at the side of the main building and reception.

Our rooms are located upstairs.

Comes with a living room.

Going up the stairs on the right brings you to the rooms.

Sorry for the mess.

The other room.

Both rooms comes with private bathroom and heater.

This is the nursery and farms.

Feeling hungry? The management provide a cafeteria which serves local and Chinese foods.

The cafeteria closes at 9.40 pm.

The rooms however, doesn't come with a kitchen or electric kettle. The weather can be really cold at night and having a hot coffee or tea is just heavenly. I would advise bringing flask so that you can save some hot water and have your drinks without going out from your room.

A few of these are located within the cabin's buildings.

This is the view from the back of our rooms at dawn.

The next morning! This is considered a lucky shot that day as the clouds covered the mountain in an instant after that.

One more thing, do pack some mosquito coil or mosquito spray. Those mosquitoes can be an annoyance at night. Happy vacation!
