We had our own car and drove to the plantation. We had a superb educational tour of the factory in operation at 830am Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the education and excellent but short tour with Hamid. The restaurant is new and offers a superb view over the plantation, the menu is varied with Sabah tea flavoured foods like pancakes, waffles,...

Fantastic location although bumpy ride to it. We upgraded to cottage on arrival which was good, although I had expected it to be more themed around the tea. Went for look round long house as we wanted to see rooms but all doors locked. Facinating building with springy bamboo floors. Tea tour ok but would have liked to learn more,...

We booked a cottage, a little apprehensive given some of the reviews, but had an amazing time, a perfect stop over from KK to see the orang-utans at sepilok. The morning views of Mt K superb and a perfect location to explore the sights at the base of the mountain, including hot springs , war memorial and tea factory tour....

We went there during school holiday recently. Nearly 1 hour drive from Kundasang. Quite hot and not so chilled like Kundasang. Not much doing except shopping for variety of tea. Have agarwood, cinnamon, misai kucing, ginger tea and etc.

A group of us attended a guided tour of the plantation factory, tea tasting and set lunch. The factory tour was very interesting and our guide very knowledgeable. Photography is not permitted inside the factory itself, but everywhere else is ok. Sabah tea has a truly smooth taste and tastes very pure - I had not realised how different our...

We stayed in a cottage, which was small and very simple but had everything we needed, including air conditioning. The best thing here is the lovely location overlooking the tea plantation. There isn't much to do, and the food was disappointing (there are no alternative restaurants nearby), so one night is sufficient to see the place once the hordes of...

This is the only tea plantation in Sabah. Complete with tea factory which was very interesting to visit. Accommodation is simple but met out requirements. The views over the plantation of Mount Kinabalu are lovely. Food was good and staff attentive. The plantation was also on the route of the Sandakan Death Marches undertaken by Australian and British prisoners of...

I stayed here briefly as part of a tour of Borneo. The tea cottages were very comfortable and had all of the amenities I required. The main attraction to this place was the sheer beauty and tranquillity of the location. The sun rise and sun set over the tea plantations and over to Mount Kinabalu was incredible, and one of...
