Poring Hot Springs, Kota Kinabalu Reviews
Went here as part of a group for the day, honestly not sure it was worth the trip. Th canyon walk which requires an additional fee and camera fee was fun and enjoyable with a nice view. Then we walked to the close waterfall which was quite small and underwhelming. Didn’t trek out to the far one so cannot comment. They had one active flower which was 10 ringgit to see, again very underwhelming... but maybe I’m a harsh critic. The highlight for us was the cafe which had good food and coffee and was comfortable to have a relaxing day in. Hot springs the main one was out of access so it was the individual small ones. Which were so dirty, they are basically small baths in groups of four with the taps in the middle that you sit in. No filters, no drainage and seemingly no rules. Other hot springs I’ve been to require showering prior and have attendants ensuring clean use... here there was nothing... we poked a foot in and they were boiling hot! I’ve been to hot hot springs and this one was quite toasty. All in all, I have no need to go back.
Nice place to visit and spend time with family or friends. You can swimming in the public pool or private (fee is RM 15 per hour), the water is hot ans you can mix it with the cold water. Beside that there are several ways to explore the jungle and walking in the amazing wood bridge.
Great place to relax when not too many people. Sometimes the bath tub is dirty might need workers to check the hot tub more frequently. The swimming pool water was so cold its feel like swimming in a pool of ice water but its fun. The large pool have only seen it operating once last year and i haven't got the chance to try it yet since its always closed.
A nice place to spend with family..specially kids will love this place..they can swim and play in the hot water spring pool.. there are many small pool we can access here.. the ticket is cheap and free for kids under 7. better to bring your own food and you can enjoy it like having picnic in the nature.there are also private pool in some small wooden houses..
Various places to visit. They have the butterfly garden, trails to 2 waterfalls, the suspension bridge walk, and the famous place ‘Hot Spring’. If you’re planning to soak your feet at the small public hot spring, I recommend you to start filling the water in the tub as soon as you arrived. Took more than 30minutes just to get it to ankle level. 🤣
