The turnoff from the highway to the resort is on the left of the main Kimanis/Keningau highway. Follow the gravel road for about 300meters and you will arrive at the resort. It is quite a surprise to see this well constructed resort with nicely landscaped gardens in the middle of nowhere. The resort sits in a valley bounded on 3 sides by hills and has a very nice river running on 2 sides of the property. The main building houses the reception, restaurant and a meeting room and is designed in a mix of modern and Balinese architecture with an open concept allowing the flow of natural breezes to cool the place.

The surrounding hills provide ample opportunities for nature appreciation and jungle trekking with trails that lead through secondary forest, rubber plantations and wild fruit trees. There is also a delightful waterfall with a small pool suitable for taking a dip in the cool waters. The Kimanis River, which borders the resort, is also possible for inner tubing and kayaking.
The resort is ideal for families who want to get away from it all and spend some time bonding together without the distractions of modern living like the Internet or even cell phones as the reception there is pretty bad. It is ideal for small company retreats and simple team building activities. The resort can also be used as a base to explore the Crocker Range national park that is situated not very far from the resort.
