  • Place where people enjoying the natural hotspring. This place has butterly garden, cannopy walk, orchid garden, bath tube hotspring and also open pool.
  • Poring means bamboo, in the local language. You can see huge bamboo trees in the area... a nice skywalk & of course, bathing at the hot spring. This place is about 15km from Ranau.....easily accessable. If you enjoy swimming in a hot spring, make sure you bring along an extra clothes. Otherwise, you can also enjoy a cold water fall...
  • Please come early in the morning, because you might not get places as the place is started to full in noon. If you cannot grab a chance to feel the hot spring then do some hiking in about 650 metre to these place, Kipungit waterfall. 💞
  • A good place for relaxation and peace of mind. Can be crowded during school holidays and public holidays. For maximum comfort, my family stayed in a motel across the road a night before the actual visit to the hot spring. It is opened as early as 6.45am, so guests afar are likely to reach this place around 9am-2pm. Pools and bath tubs are closed around 6pm. There's a difference in entrance fee for local visitors (Malaysian Identity Card holder) and tourist (Non-Malaysian). Overall, it's a very nice place for chilling out with families or friends. Prepare to bring your own towels. Non provided there (although there are some local shops selling them outside of the compound).
  • Beautiful accommodation, incredibly friendly and welcoming staff, lovely food. It's great to have access to the pools in the evening after the day visitors have left. Couldn't fault it.
