Celyn Resort Kinabalu Jun 20, 2009
The journey up to the hotel located in Kundasang took us about an hour an half. Getting into the resort the road conditions are rocky and narrow. Better have an experience driver! Nevertheless, we heard that the hotel has a great view of the Mount Kinabalu hence we endure the bumpy rocky ride all the way up to get to the hotel. We arrived late afternoon and it’s still rather hot then during the night the temperature drops.

We had a villa with a balcony with lounge chairs facing the mountain. It was rainy that day and cloudy so we didn’t get to see the mountain that evening. There are 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms and a lounge and kitchen. The kitchenette are well equipped if you want to prepare some meals. We did not bring any groceries up and thinking of driving out at night is not an option for us, remembering the lack of lightings on the rocky narrow road. We had dinner at the hotel then. The owners of the hotel are a nice Chinese couple who named the hotel after their daughter. We had a lovely meal with them while we chatted the night away. They are not there all the time but we were lucky to have bump into them. Being up there, fresh ingredients would normally be vegetables, have your seafood in KK town but when you are up there, have the vegetables.

We went back to our villa and decided to have an early night since the place is really quiet, especially so for us urban souls. After all we wanted to catch the sunrise which we will have to wake up at 5.30am in the morning.

The beds are rather hard and not too comfortable, the bathroom, expect some stray insects in there, expected so when surrounded by the flora and fauna.

Seems like I couldn’t wake up the rest and ended up sitting alone in our private balcony waiting for sunrise. It’s totally worth waking up early for and the mist had cleared somehow, fantastic view!
