Are you like me that whenever I feel so low, I want to be in a place so high and take the leap? Lol, it’s not suicide. To be in a high place is refreshing, right? It’s like you exist only to feel the freedom and happiness.
Kokol Haven Resort is the perfect spot to watch the blue sky and the orange flares of the sun that prevails the whole city because it’s atop of the hill; 1,000 m above sea level. It is a newly established resort and the way going there is also zigzag and narrow but just 1 hour away from the city.
On the way there already pays the price because of the breathtaking view. Moreover, the way is steeper than the way to Kinabalu Park, I think. Again, we hired Fat for the Kinabalu Park and Kokol Haven Resort for RM600. This is a reasonable price because the way is going up.
There’s an entrance fee of RM 10 but a free drink comes to that. So we enjoyed while waiting because the scenery is really majestic even if it’s not sunset yet.
We arrive around 4 PM and the sun is still soaring high yet the wind is really cool.
The resort has function rooms, room accommodation, nipa hut which I guess is also for an accommodation, and of course the overlooking al fresco dining area which is divided into three. Kids can freely play in the bermuda grass.
There’s also this small bridge that opted you to strike a pose.
After having endless conversations, kidding around with our shy type tour guide, appreciating the beauty of the country and the disciplinary virtue and very friendly manner of Malaysians, we got more captivated by the ravishing city as the sun sets.
The scene is very surreal…. it’s in that moment you can finally say “I love Sabah.” Well, I also hope I’m with someone special while having that moment. Hahaha!
