We stayed for two nights and Tampat Do Aman and had a brilliant time here. The setting is incredible; between pristine jungle and undiscovered kudat coastline, Howard has created a wonderfully friendly and peaceful travellers retreat. Kudat feels very much like an unexplored area of Sabah; if you want to go somewhere a bit off the map that is peaceful...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome friends. At the Tip of Borneo lies an Eco resort and jungle camp called Tampat Do Aman. In the local Rungus language this means "a place of friends".We are located by the only road that leads to this phenomenally beautiful coastline that stretches from the Tip of Borneo 10km to the south, incorporating eight of the best beaches Sabah has to offer. The area really is a jewel in the crown of Sabah. In Tampat Do Aman Tip of Borneo you will find : A Jungle camp (Traditional Rungus long House), A beach front restaurant and Bar (“Tip Top”) and an activities center. If you are a nature lover like us then there is lots to do here in Tip of Borneo. Our activities center offers bicycles and snorkeling gear for rent. There are different trekking and night tours happening and you can even take a course in Jungle Survival. ... more   less
