  • Probably good if you've just done the walk but otherwise very hot. Highlights for us were the canopy walk and butterfly enclosure. Not wortha special day trip but fine if passing.  more »

  • It has everything that nature lovers could've asked for. Privacy, cleanliness, spacious. The fact that there's other places you can go beside the hot spring means you could spend the whole day to just explore the place.
  • Good place to relieve tension by dipping into the natural hot water. Good place for bird watching. Try to visit the Canopy walk you will be amazed how beautiful the nature are.
  • Is fun to see and to be at a public open air hot spring, where locals and foreign visitors soak together in tubs. Love the vibrancy in the atmosphere. Not to be missed is the canopy walk 5-10min walk from the hot spring!
  • Sulfer water Springs.. Along with butterfly park. Both the places are good.. Nice seating arramgement in springs.. Restrooms and changing rooms are also available free of cost...
  • Love for its hot spring. But they didn't control wild dogs from entering the premise. Eventhough the dogs meant no harm, but its not hygienic.

Where to stay in Kota Kinabalu

In the area of Sepanggar you'll find the main set of hotels, ranging from simple and mid-priced, to the more luxurious with good sea views. Move away from the coast for more space and privacy in resort-style hotels, which offer a range of facilities and comfortable, sometimes quirky rooms and apartments. Farther out still, you'll find backpacker motels, giving easy access to the surrounding natural attractions that, after all, are the primary reason for being here.
