Best Mountain View

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 20, 2004

Look at the photo. Isn't it beautiful?

I stayed only one night at the Perkasa Hotel, Kundasang, (which claims to be the hotel nearest to Mount Kinabalu) and took some photos from my suite window (try to get a room from the 5th floor onwards).

Okay, so it is a rather average hotel (run by the state government), but for the price, it is certainly value-for-money.

This is because when you awaken at 5.30 am, (because it gets bright really early!), you will have the most gorgeous view of the Crocker Range (towards your right) and the mist and cloud (sorry, it is not snow!) covered-tips of Mount Kinabalu from the window of your suite.

You're at 5,000 feet above sea level. The air is crisp and fresh, the sun shines brightly, and it feels like Sydney on a beautiful spring morning.

Have your breakfast outside at the garden of the hotel, and enjoy the lovely unpoluted air.

Unique Quality: Wonderful view of Mount Kinabalu and the Crocker Range, worth upgrading to a suite for better views!

Also the suite is larger than the normal room and this will be more comfortable for 2 kids and 2 adults. If you need an additional mattress on the floor, this can be arranged by the hotel staff.

Friendly staff.

Many photo taking opportunities.

Smell the fresh, unpolluted air and give a word of thanks to God!

Tips for Supermums: The kids will love to play in the gardens, where there is a mini canopy walkway.

Downside: Hot water is a scarce resource. Make sure the kids don't use it all up before you get a chance to bathe!

Sorry, it is not easy to find this hotel on any internet website.

Directions: It is about two hours drive from KK town.
