Started up with 4 days Rainforest Eco Lodge, Kt Kinabalu and Turtle, ended up in letting Eco arrange hotel in KK before and after totally 9n/10d. All worked perfectly from pick up airport to send to airport. Thanks to drivers, guides and especially Cindy who arranged everything. Will definitely choose Eco again if come to Borneo, which might come true, as Sabah much better than expected.
