Cuti-Cuti Sabah BAH: Hibiscus Beach Retreat of Kudat, Sabah

"Epitome of peace, relaxation and escapism from the busy lives" - this is how I define of my stay in Kudat. 

So for the second week of June, we decided to head to Kudat, a chilled-town sits on the northernmost tip of Sabah and it takes approximately 3 hours drive from the city center of Kota Kinabalu. The ideal way to travel around this town is either rent a car or sign up for a day trip from local tour operator. If you considering to rent a car, I would recommend my friend's car rental company - Haruka Holiday and just quote my name to get the best price. Trust me, not only that he provides the best car rental services but he will give you any recommendations and suggestions of things to do and see within the state of Sabah. 

Talking about Kudat, this is my second time to this town. The last time I've been here it's like 5 or 6 years ago (I barely remember) and this is why I thought it's best to repeat for another round. For this trip, I went and visited more attractions rather than just Tip of Borneo and I will share more about it on the next upcoming post cause I want to focus more on the accommodation I stayed in this post.

#1: Our accommodation in Kudat is perched on a small cliff top - cool right?

It was kinda last minute decision for us to book this Hibiscus Beach Retreat (less than a week) and luckily, we managed to secure our reservation cause there are only two self-contained chalets which are Clifftop and Treetops. We chosen Clifftop because not just that it has unrivaled views of the South China Sea, but it's also closer to the private beach.

Consists of one queen-sized bed and ensuite shower, this self-contained chalet is perfectly suitable for couples and small families who are looking for barefoot luxury, privacy and exclusivity at its best. They even prepared and placed basic kitchen appliances like fridge, kettle, bread toaster and also coffee pod machine within the room for the convenience of the guests. In terms of the size of the room, I found it's pretty spacious and we had no issue of moving around (probably because there were only two of us). The cherry on the cake of this stay is the gorgeous and marvellous sea and sky view straight out from the room.

#9: The stay includes breakfast where they stored inside the fridge before the check-in time. It might looks simple and basic with bread, cereal, fruits, juice and milk but no complain when this place is like paradise.

The stay, the service, the sea - what can we ask for more? Everything about Hibiscus Beach Retreat is beyond words. Though there is no phone coverage nor free WiFi connection where both of us were totally disconnected from the world for almost 24 hours, thus this is the time to get off the grid and just let the nature amaze us with its beauty. Absolutely idyllic stay to relax, unwind and escape from the hustle and bustle of living in the city. It's damn so good that until now, this place unable to get out from out head. I can conclude that this is a truly hidden gem of Sabah and I can't wait to go back and stay for second time. 

Interested in staying Hibiscus Beach Retreat? Good news cause they are currently doing promotion where one night stay for only RM295 instead of RM590. Hurry up book with them cause they only have to two available chalets and as for the one I stayed, exclusively one and only Clifftop.
