+ Nice pool, amazing seaview. Friendly staff, comfortable room. Paid a very affordable price, value for money.- Noisy room (noise comes from the corridor and outside). Room and hotel looks old, walls need to be cleaned and painted

The bed was good. The aircond was new and cold. But the toilet was bad. Need some improvement or may be have to renovate the toilet. Its too old and I am so upset when I arrived at the lobby my booking was not in the system and they said they not received my payment, so we have to wait about 1 hour for them to recheck our booking.

About

Kudat, a town in Sabah, one of two states in the East of Malaysia. Almost 200 kilometres north from Kota Kinabalu, Kudat is in the northernmost point of Borneo. This place was only accessible by boats up until 1960s until the first constructions of roads began but still, there weren’t many locals and even less foreigners that were willing to visit Kudat at that time due to poor conditions of the roads and rough terrain. Only in 1990s, when the highway between Kota Kinabalu and Kota Belut was completed together with upgraded roads to Kudat, that the visitors to this town increased. Kudat is the home for Rungus people, Sabah’s most traditional tribe, which is also the subgroup of the Kadazandusun people. In the year 2010, it was estimated that there are 83,140 people living in Kudat with the largest ethnic group belonged to the native, the Rungus, and about 10% is Chinese.

Kudat was originally named ‘Tomborungan’ by the local Rungus people, taken from the name of a now-disappeared river, the Tomborungus River. However, when the British settlers came there and asked the name from the locals, they misunderstood their question. They thought the settlers were asking for the name of the grasses that were abundant at that place which happened to be called as ‘kudat’ in their native language. Thus, the name Kudat was born and replaced the old name of Tomborungan.

How to Get There

By Car

Kudat is reachable by driving through the Pan-Borneo Highway that connects Kudat to state capital, Kota Kinabalu. The 190 kilometres driving takes approximately three hours.

Gombizau Honey Bee

Located at the south of Kudat town, 43 kilometres away, this is a far that shows the activities of villagers of Matunggong. Honey bee farming is one of their economy-generated activity. The farm was established more than a decade, starting from producing honeys just for the consumptions of the locals and selling some in bottles. Today, there are more than hundreds bee cages. The honeys are not processed, meaning they’re selling and consume the raw honeys which they believed to have, and proven, to have remedial properties. At this farm, the visitors have the chance to see how they managed the farm and taste the raw honeys directly from the honeycombs. The admission fee is cheap, only RM 5 per adult (12 years old and above) and for children age 6-12 is only RM 3 while children below six are free for enter.

Bavanggazo Longhouse

Situated just shy of 40 kilometres from Kudat town at the southwest. A longhouse is a traditional house for the Rungus people, where several families lived together, sharing one communal space. But due to modernization, the longhouse is getting rarer these days. Here in Bavangnggazo longhouse, you can stay and experience the traditional lifestyle like the Runggus people through their foods, daily rituals and music. The longhouse is built using traditional materials with a touch of modern comforts such as toilets and showers. The tickets fee is only RM 3 per person and RM 5 for non-Malaysian.
