Where to stay in Kundasang Hotels
Lying along the banks of the Kundasang Valley, about 10km east of the Kinabalu National Park headquarters, Kundasang has long been regarded as a transit stop for travellers on their way to the Kinabalu National Park. Featuring a few noteworthy attractions, the town is best known as the site of the Kundasang War Memorial & Gardens which was built to commemorate the POWs who died during WWII and the Sandakan Death Marches. Also within Kundasang’s borders is the Poring Hot Springs, a popular stopover for those who’ve made the demanding hike up Mount Kinabalu or those who’ve trekked across the Crocker Range.
Primarily inhabited by Chinese and Dusun peoples, Kundasang is also known for its extensive daily morning vegetable market. The area’s not extremely popular amongst tourists as its relatively quiet but it’s a good jumping-off point to the Kinabalu National Park and the 4101m Mount Kinabalu, Southeast Asia’s highest peak. Accommodation options in Kundasang are in short supply; a good mid range deal is the three-star Celyn Resort – rooms are pleasing and well worth your dollar.
