just enough for unwind and release stress. no one next to you and no one around. white sandy beach in front of the property. Normal and limited food. You can get some seafood supplies from Kuda town or order from them. They will cook at their restaurant with extra surcharge but seafood in kudat town is extremely cheap.!!

If you are a solo traveller or with another friend or two just to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this place is just perfect. Don't expect anything fancy of the rooms. They have towels, shampoo (tho no body wash), they do provide prepacked toothbrush and tooth paste. Don't see daily room cleaning though but it...

It is a little tricky to rate this place. First the good: Where else in the world can you have a pristine beach to yourselves? A beautiful secluded white sand beach a short walk from the tip of Borneo with killer sunsets. We swam and snorkeled. The snorkeling isn't amazing, but its pleasant and I did see several bright blue...

We decided to go to Tommys Place after we had climbed the Mount Kinabalu to relax at the beach. The beach is nice but there's no shade at all, deckchairs are broken and trash everywhere (also around the hammocks provided by tommys place). Food at TP is not good- I ordered a burger and it was raw (the second one...

It is very sad to see such a nice location establishment ran by dishonest staff. They promise so much yet deliver very little. The also outright lied to us. Check around there are other places to stay and eat...... It is shame because there is so much potential and a great location.

Of the few resorts on the tip of Borneo, this place is among the better ones. This, however, does not say much. Rooms are average with nothing but beds and a toilet. It is a bit expensive for its type but worth it if you want a somewhat decent place to stay.
