NORTH BORNEO BIOSTATION,KUDAT

Thanks to Agoda.com for bringing me here and as well my star, without this two, I won't probably know about it. This unique (I call it unique because by the name itself and the shape of the chalet) located not that far from Kudat Town. This resort was built on 7 acres secluded seafront land by two scientist Alexander and Luidmila Frank. Yes, it is what they call not just a resort but also a Field Scientific Station. 

High top ceiling and spacious room is definitely a selling point. The wood is made of tropical hardwood in Java Indonesia. Quite big but is hot. The room equipped with air-conditioning , only one. It will take a long time to cool down the temperature. Obviously no TV and hp line is weak. Basically, you are back to nature. Guaranteed. The bed is comfortable (you pay what you get). Really interesting features, the front door. It is 3/4 mirror type of door and only covered by thin daylight curtain and basically, you can see the shadow of the people or anything from outside if passing by your chalet, so, positive note;you can predict or alert all the time, negative note; if you keep on looking at it, you will have disturb sleep. No wardrobe provided but  have a small fridge. 

It is spacious (it is really big) open-air shower room is fully equipped with hot shower and the water running ok. It is a cool concept to have open air shower room (OPEN means you can see the sky).

As this resort is quite far from the town, no worries, it has insanely huge open-air restaurant,Teratai Restaurant , selling foods and drinks. You name it, western dishes such as Fish and Chips, grilled chicken or just typical Malaysian Dishes such as Penang Fried Noodles,Kerabu Chicken and much more were available to be purchased with price start at RM 8 and up to RM 28. Quite reasonable, not that expensive. 


North Borneo Bio-Station mean for research study and end up as staycation. If you wish ti get away from anything, this would be ideal choice. No TV, no music, just life and good companion.

Since 2016 (Rebrand 2020)
