Sutera Sanctuary Lodge

Sutera has a monopoly over Kinabalu Park, and if you want to climb the mountain or sleep within the park you'll need to deal with them.

Photo of Sutera Sanctuary Lodge There are multiple options ranging from basic bunks at 20-bed Grace Hostel to family-sized private chalets with a full living room and fireplace. All are overpriced, but standards are quite good and the hot showers are reliable. Sutera can also arrange your room and board halfway up the mountain at the Laban Rata resthouse -- bring your warmest clothes (from 448 ringgit per climber with full board meals). Sutera is the most popular option with climbers and tour groups, so book well in advance. Rates include breakfast.
