They could not find my booking in the system and the family room that I booked earlier had been occupied by other. They offer me another room which is smaller than previous book and the balance of refund used for dine in the cafe. Cafe dine in was terrible. The order was delay for so long and they not doing their check list to confirm whether the food is serve or not. We have to ask and remind few times.

Kinarut is a town in the state of Sabah, Malaysia. It is located about 20 kilometres south of the state capital, Kota Kinabalu, and Kinarut railway station is one of the stops on the Sabah State Railway. Kinarut is under the administration of the Papar district. Several theories exist as to the etymological origins of the name 'Kinarut'. One such theory is that it refers to a street in the town which was formerly called China Road. Another theory is that it originated from the Dusun word Kinorot which means 'cutting using a knife'. North Borneo Native Dusun Tindal dialect 'Kinorut' mean serious thing. You have to put or tie a rope around something e.g. a tree more than once or at least ten times. This mean you made the tie seriously and you have the intention of letting it tied permanently or the knot is not easily loosened. Or you just cannot afford to let go some precious item. For example when you tie one end of a rope, with big wild buffalo on the other end, onto a tree, you have to use this 'Kinorut' method so that your rope won't get loose from the tree with the precious commodity. For example a Dusun bring in a buffalo to a bazaar, he'll tie one end of the buffalo rope on a tree and using 'Kinorut' method.

Kinarut is also inhabited by the Dusun-kadazan anyway. Kinarut originally belonged to the Sultanate of Brunei. In the late 17th century, when Sultan Abdul Hakkul Mubin had to withdraw from Pulau Chermin (Chermin Island) during the Brunei Civil War, he built a base in Kinarut at a strategic location protected by two rivers. He remained there for ten years as the Sultan of Kinarut, during which incidents of piracy in the surrounding seas decreased significantly. With help from the local Bajau and Dusun people, he managed to counter several attacks from Sultan Muhyiddin.
