I always take my Biking friends to this Lodge, its peaceful, close to the sea with great views. The rooms are basic, clean and functional, with Air Con and comfortable beds. Good food and drink is plentiful, served up by friendly staff.

This secluded and peaceful place is 2 and a half hours drive from Kota Kinabalu and if you are coming from Kudat, 45 minutes. Nestled and hidden inside a "kampung" or village by the beach is this quaint and simple spot. The beach is clean and the water clear. Each cabin has a beachfront view and comes with air conditioning... More

Me and my friend were a little disappointed but we didn't bother much about it cause we had expected that the condition of the room was plain simple. A/C's working and comes with shower heater too. We had our dinner at Tampat Do Aman as that's the nearest restaurant you can find nearby in the evening. Upon all that the... More

The setting of the little houses in the garden is superb : just opposite the beach (I'll tell you it's so beautiful they'll put a Sheraton hotel or so within 5 years time) and also at walking distance from the actual tip of Borneo (don't miss the sunset there) But the rooms at this place are really neglected with of...

"Houses' set on hilltop overlooking the (NE) coastline, each with 2 - 4 units. Basic room with OK bathroom. Nice covered deck (especially if you are the only occupants in the 'house'!) Nice elevated views from large (windy) restaurant. Day trippers eat/drink/icecream etc here. 10 min walk SW to long white-sand beach with good swimming. Diving in area by lighthouse.

The hotel is cheaper than Tommy's and offers similar value. But both are pricey for what they offer. I guess you are paying the location. Unfortunately it was pouring when we visited so we couldn't really enjoy this either. Also the beach was very dirty in part due to rains with wood, but also full of plastic. It's a pity... More

We stayed for 4 nights at this lodge in February, 2013. The setup of the hotel is its best feature with all chalets being detached and with a sea view.

“Stay as far away from reception as possible as it can get noisy when the on site Shipwreck Bar is in full swing (by full swing I mean when the staff are having a party as we did not see one other guest in there the one night it was open during our stay).”
