While there are many chilly places in Malaysia to escape the tropical heat, there's always a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Besides Cameron Highlands and Genting Highlands, you can always take a flight to Kota Kinabalu and drive to Kundasang, a place that promises a landscape of rolling hills and lush greenery.
If you've fallen in love with Kundasang (our 4D3N itinerary to Kota Kinabalu and Kundasang will show you what's not to miss), there's an accommodation out there that's ready to host your overnight stay.
Situated in Bundu Tuhan, a village near Kinabalu Park, Mountain Valley Resort is also a 15-minute drive from Kundasang. That means you're only a short distance away from Desa Cattle Dairy Farm and Kundasang Valley. After completing its renovation in May 2019, Mountain Valley Resort opened its doors to guests far and wide.
This hillside resort is occupied with 15 guestrooms consisting of Family Room, Signature Deluxe Room, and Standard Room. Starting from RM360 per night, you can choose to stay in the Mountain wing (with a view of Mount Kinabalu) or Valley wing (with a view of Bundu Tuhan valley). Recent reviews also suggest that the rooms are always full, so be sure to make your bookings in advance.
- Standard room: RM360 per night (1 double bed or 2 single beds)
- Signature deluxe room: RM420 per night (1 double bed)
- Family room: RM520 per night (1 double bed and 1 single bed)
- All room rates are subject to change without prior notice. We recommend checking the rates with the resort before your stay.
When you stay at Mountain Valley Resort, one of the highlights is the breathtaking view you get right outside your window. Surrounded by a majestic mountain, beautiful valley and lush greenery, it truly promises a landscape that Kundasang is best known for. Since Kundasang is also famous for its chilly weather, be sure to step out with a jacket or sweater.
If you're planning to take in the sweeping view, The Glass Bistro & Restaurant is right outside the resort's entrance. Grab yourself a cup of hot mocha and cappuccino and let the gorgeous scenery charm you in complete solitude and serenity.
