Bungalow in Mt Kinabalu & Kinabalu National Park

Set on the side of Mt Kinabalu, opposite a vegetable farm, this dark-wood building, popular with Malaysian tourists, has a Swiss-chalet flavour to it. Its 10 sunrise-facing rooms are minimalist chic, while the chalets are huge affairs with two bedrooms, lounge, flat-screen TV, DVD player and balcony. On the road to Kundasang, five minutes' drive after the park entrance.
