Paradise is not always a sandy beach. There are people like us who like the cold. What! You too?
Well did you know that you can experience an icy vacation right here in Sabah? Yes, we are talking about Kundasang!
Brace yourself, we’re about to introduce to you, one of the best places to stay in Kundasang!
H.Benjamin Residence – a beautiful place to behold!
Located 1 700 metres above sea level, H. Benjamin Residence is an affordable holiday destination that will have you waking up to a soothing cold breeze, clean fresh air and a stunning scenery.
This residence is located away from the main touristy area and that is what makes it so appealing! Here, you can view the magnificent Mount Kinabalu up-close from the front yard.
When staying here, we recommend to wake up early (six-ish) so you can catch a clear view of Mt Kinabalu.
Beautifully designed exterior with exposed red bricks (feels like a very old British architecture vibe) that adds contrasts to the surrounding greenery – perfect for pictures, don’t you think?
So make sure to bring your Instagrammable outfits with you, as you’re going to need it for your selfies!
Oh and also, there is a nice stream and a bridge within walking distance to take great pictures.
All rooms are tastefully furnished with a private balcony, equipped with private hot shower and LED television with selected Astro channels.
Minimalistic yet lovely decor.
Trust us, kids will fancy the sleeping area in the Family Room, which has a gate and accessible with iron steps.
Aircond is not needed in the room as the outside temperature is pleasantly cool even during the afternoons and become quite chilly during wee hours of the morning and late evenings.
As the Canadians say, “there’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes”. So be sure to wear thick clothes especially when you step out of your room at night.
Rose petals decor? Come on, you know what that means!
Being remote is part of the appeal especially for the honeymooners. This place gives you complete privacy, with the only interruption coming from the waiter who brings a pre-ordered breakfast straight to your door.
The restaurant on-site opens from 7.30am to 9.00pm daily, serving halal food and offers a selection of local and western menu.
As you can see, the restaurant’s wall is half glass, so you might experience distractions (in a good way!) when having breakfast due to the stunning sight of flowers blooming and the majestic mountain view.
For dinner, do opt for steamboat or BBQ but if you have to choose between the two, we suggest… that you have BOTH!
..or you could request to have your meal at this lovely and spacious wooden open deck that offers you the chance to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty. Just look at the view. LOOK! (take your time, we’ll wait.)
When night falls, the sight of the starry sky is something to behold.
So when all is said, it’s time to grab your calendar, call your BFFs and book through Beelik.com.
Really, H.Benjamin Residence is a great place for friends and family or romantic getaway.
If you’re lucky, you get to meet the friendly owner, Mr.Michael.
Be sure to book early to avoid disappointment!
