- Romantic Vacation
Overall is great but only the road to the resort was bad. When we saw the entrance from the main road we don't expect that there is a resort on top of the hill. It like we were thinking “is this road really lead us to the resort?” By the way road needs improvement.
- Family vacation
Can see Kinabalu Mount at hotel room. But so sad drive to this hotel. The road very poor. Need to drive 4x4 to this hotel.

The view was superb! Unfortunately, the road to the resort gave me back pain. Need improvement on the taste of food and more variety for the breakfast. I give 9/10!
- Family vacation
The food not good at all..tried to order nasi goreng for dinner that cost me RM20 but the taste so bad..the room is very basic but the view is amazing..the location just ok but the road to reach the resort so bad..

You could see mount kinabalu clearly as the sky clear

It's nice place but far from main road

The place is great, the accommodation is great, the restaurant served local yummy food in their menu. They provide karaoke activities on the night, they provided us a big hall room cost RM50/3 hours for the karaoke activities. That is amazing and hilarious at the same time. During our first day there, the weather is rainy, fogs every where and we almost see nothing on the other side of the hill. But then on the next day, we were blessed with sun and light, and there you can witness the mighty mountain of Kinabalu clearly!!! It was indeed a breathtaking moment. It was just too bad that my camera can't take what I've witnessed with my naked eyes. I will definitely recommend people to stay here.

Memorable View at Kinabalu Wing Upper Floor
Stayed 2 nights here at Kinabalu Wing facing the majestic Mount Kinabalu and the vegetable farms. 3 days is just leisurely enough to visit Tuaran, Tamparuli & Kinabalu Park on Day 1, Poring & Sabah Tea Garden on Day 2 and complete with Desa Cattle Farm & Kundasang Memorial at Day 3. Pros:- 1) Hotel is clean but basic. It's suprising as most nature hotels tend be damp and grimy and full of ants but no such problem with Celyn. There's even insect netting at the bathroom windows.Hot shower is available, just need wait 5 - 10 minutes. 2) Can purchase some souvenirs and food at the lobby. There are 2 massage chairs as well. Friendly front desk. 3) Seriously spectacular view. On the first dawn, Kinabalu was cloudy but I was greeted with a reddish tint clear views of Kinabalu all the way to the summit on the second dawn at 6 am in the morning which was obscured by clouds again by 7.15am. It's an ultimate pleasure to view Kinabalu in bed through the front doors. Cons:- 1) The access road to this place can be either from before enter Kundasang town or the proper road after Kundasang but before Ranau town. The road nearest to Kundasang is narrow, full of potholes and uphill at most parts using the kampung narrow roads with giant weeds framing the road. I followed the Waze selection (the road nearest to Kundasang) and nearly turned back many times before finally reaching the hotel. The official road (between Kundasang & Ranau) is 3KM long but less bumpy but equally exhausting to drive. 2) Breakfast could be improved, buffet selection is minimal. Celyn Resort is spectacular location and great hotel but the road to get there is pretty challenging. Recommended to get a better car before attempting to stay here again (drove here with a Nissan Almera, not a good experience). Also get back to Celyn before sunset (approx 5.30 pm)

Good hotel with amazing views
My husband and I stayed for one night whilst traveling about Borneo. The rooms are comfortable and clean. No air conditioning, it did have hot water. The room was furnished in old style simple furnishing but was very clean. We had a balcony with a view of the mountain and valley which is spectacular. Access is very high up the mountain on a rough gravel road - part of the adventure. Meals were good with both western and Asian cuisine at the restaurant. Staff are very friendly and will do anything they can to make your stay comfortable. Small range of postcards and souvenirs at the reception desk.

The View is Everything.
The view of the mountain from the rooms is spectacular. The resort is set further away from Mount Kinabalu than the other resorts in Kundasang and this allows us to capture the whole view of the mountain and its surroundings. The rooms are basic. A bed, chairs and a vanity. Toilet and shower is clean and functioning well. Everything is in better condition than some other resorts I've been to. Don't expect 5 star amenities. The road up to the resort is a bit of a deal breaker. Its rocky and the final approach to the resort is pretty steep. For my one night stay, it was ok. No complaints at all.

View was Superb but the facility is bad
I've stayed in the Kinabalu Wings for 3D2N with my wife and son. The road to the hotel is the worst issue. 3km offroad route passing by the "orang asli village" and there's no streetlight along the way. It would be extremely dangerous for the people who is coming there with small kids and not to mentioned the final climb to the hotel was too high , u need to "zig-zag" your car to climb it. The first 24 hours staying there , there have been 4 times of power trip happend and all of it in the middle of the night which the duration is almost 30min-1hour each power trip. The view was superb but the service and facility was not up to par. The entrance door to the unit is just a sliding door with small locking mechanism. Very less security with no fencing gate around the hotel and no security guard as well. The facility is not worth RM200++. I've just stayed 1 night there and requested to be transfered to the KK branch as a signed of refund as I've paid in full for 3D2N.

Amazing view in the kinabalu wing.
The view is amazing. The hotel is basic. The staff are helpful and friendly and the rooms were clean. You would need some form of transport to get to the hotel. We had a hire car so it was great. I would recommend this hotel if nothing else for the amazing view of Kota Kinabalu mountain, it's close to poring if you want to go to the springs, which was our reason for staying there.
