Nature

A vibrant destination for nature & the arts

Kinabalu National Park

Home to Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia's first World Heritage Site, Kinabalu National Park is a paradise of flora and fauna which thrive in the cooler mountain air.

During certain seasons of the year, the famous Rafflesia, largest flower in the world, can be sighted in the park. The park is also a haven for pitcher plants, wild orchids and a multitude of moths, butterflies and bugs which make for a fascinating study.

Poring Hot Springs

Poring Hot Springs is a natural outlet for clear spring water heated deep inside the earth. Hot springs are believed to provide cures, and relieve pains and aches.

In addition to the hot spring pools, a trek along any of the trails at Poring will bring one alongside a fascinating display of flora, and sometimes, fauna. Not to be missed is the exciting Poring Canopy Walk.

White Water Rafting at Kiulu River

Kiulu River, located just 45 minutes from the resort, is a popular white-water rafting destination. A mostly uphill drive brings guests to the starting points.

Kiulu River is the tamer of the two rivers nearby. The Padas River, which is a further 1 hour from the resort in the opposite direction, provides an extra challenge for more seasoned and adventurous rafters.
