Another resort in Kundasang with fantastic views of Mount Kinabalu.
Celyn Resort is a new 3-star resort located on top of a hill in Kampung Samuruh near Kundasang. There are only 32 rooms (though a few more are being built) so you can be assured of plenty of privacy. The rooms are divided into 2 categories – one facing Mount Kinabalu, and the other facing the valley on the opposite side. All rooms have balconies for those who want to spend the day sipping tea while looking at the gorgeous scenery. As the resort is located at 6000 feet above sea level, it is even colder than at Kundasang itself. The reception and restaurant staff are very friendly. The resort has its own organic farm, so fresh vegetables are served during meals.
Getting there though could be a problem as the road up the hill is unpaved and very steep at certain spots. Likewise, there is not much to do except relax at the resort since it is not within walking distance of the Kundasang vegetable market and getting down again is troublesome.
Getting there: Celyn Resort is located about 2 hours from Kota Kinabalu. Drive past Kundasang and Pine Resort. There is a signboard that shows the uphill road to the resort. If you are coming from Kundasang, the turning is on the right.
