Adventure Lodge Accommodation Kota Kinabalu

We have our own newly established accommodation based in KK Times Square which offers twin or family rooms with private bathrooms or a unique style of dormitory room with communal bathrooms. The expedition style lodge is ideal for those people wishing to combine basic clean and secure comfort at an affordable price. A good nights sleep was the main focus of our attention when designing our lodge. Clients within the lodge are here to climb Mount Kinabalu, scuba dive, learn to dive, join us for snorkelling adventures to name but a few activities so a good nights rest is fundamental to that enjoyment.

Great NEWS! If you book your mountain climb & at least one day on the island for waterspouts activities, plus our accommodation we will pick you up from the airport free of charge for arrivals up to 1800hrs!

100% Latex – Bed Bug Free and Environmentally Friendly !

Our Mattresses Are 100% Latex and Bed Bug Free !

Why Latex ?

Its 100% natural. Its comes from the rubber tree!

Its best for your health. Its hypoallergenic so its great for allergy sufferers or people that suffer from hay fever, asthma and respiratory problems. Oh, and its also anti-micobial. Rubber trees have a protective “milk” to protect it from damage. This milk forms a protective layer prevent infection which means fungus, bacteria and dust mites simply can’t survive inside a latex mattress. Its sustainable … A latex mattresses will last longer due to the elasticity of the material which eliminates sagging and loss of firmness. This means less waste products for our land-fills plus they are bio-degradable! The sap from the tree is harvested so no trees loose their lives in the process !
