Kg Patau Homestay, Tambunan

PATAU village is situated in a scenic valley surrounded by forested hills and mountains. At an elevation of around 2,000 meters above sea levels, day time temperature is around 22-28oC while night time can dip to a chilly 16-18oC.

With a small community of only a few hundred residents, Patau village provides a peaceful retreat. It is truly an ideal place to relax and enjoy a slow pace of life. Visitors will be hosted by families who will provide simple accommodation, local cuisines and cultural performances (for group bookings of 15 pax and more).

Together with the friendly locals, join some of the activities that make up daily life in Patau from tapai brewing (a potent rice wine), bamboo mats weaving, gong playing (musical instrument used to convey celebratory, funerary and warning messages) or party with us during festival seasons (May - Harvest Festival and December - Year End).

However, if you prefer the outdoors, then explore the wonderful nature and extraordinary biodiversity found around Patau and Crocker Range. You can swim at Mahua Waterfall, join the Panoramic Hike, explore the jungle and hunt for wild games. Or for a milder outdoor actions, get involve in agricultural activities such as planting and harvesting rice (season based) or you can while your time away fishing.

Along the way, pick up the local lingo and learn the sing-song language of the Kadazandusuns.

Whatever you chose to do, a homestay with us will be a unique and memorable experience.
