Being such a wildlife-focused destination, location is key to ensuring that you enjoy close proximity. Standards can vary according to the area and activity, with some lavish and opulent hotels in Kota Kinabalu contrasting with stilted rainforest eco-lodges on the Kinabatangan River or basic rustic camps in the foothills of Mount Kinabalu. On the island retreats of Lankayan and Mataking, you will find chalets and bungalows teasingly close to the pristine beaches, some on wooden walkways out in the ocean. Take a look at some of our preferred options below, a great combination of local and high standard. These are by no means the only accommodation we use, so please contact us if you have another property in mind.
