"My huts on the hill hug"

Oh my gosh where to start... The warm kudat sea breeze is like an enveloping huts-on-a-hill hug, whilst being educated about breathing techniques, quality of breath is the quality of life, I appreciated this air even more. I felt totally relaxed in that atmosphere with the wonderful smily staff to help you with anything. They helped with my preparation for my unexpected climb to Mount Kinabalu with practical purchases, physical training, my wonderful massage plus of course many yogic physical and mental tips...amazing. Thanks so much to all of you.

"Kirsten Bysterveld, CANADA"

The retreat itself is tucked away at the edge of a rain forest at the tip of Borneo. Its can be a bit of a drive to get there, but well worth it. After my journey I was greeted by the staff at 9 huts who were very warm and friendly. They ensured I had everything I needed during my stay. The food was excellent, each cabin had an ocean view and the beds were comfortable. The sounds of the rainforest were very soothing and peaceful, although there can be a lot of mosquitos so ensure to aways wear bug spray! Cody, the instructor, was very knowledgeable, he tailored the classes to my level of experience. He is a genuine person, who is connected and down to earth.

Overall the stay was great and this retreat left me feeling refreshed and well rested. Only down side is the 3-4 hour drive to get to the resort from KK.

"9 Huts on a hill is brill"

When you need a place to stay that brings you peace filled serenity in Kudat, this is this place! Fabulous location with the soothing sea waves lulling you to a calm place. Perfect yoga tuition and guidance. Perfectly located for a trip to The Tip of Borneo which will certainly add zest to your steps and give you stripes for your travel journal.

"Perfect retreat! "

The retreat was perfect from the start: 9Huts staff made us feel welcome and at home and they were all very helpful during the whole stay. Our yoga teacher was very good and she also organized very interesting workshops besides the yoga classes, which I recommend to attend as they are super helpful. The package we purchased also included vegetarian meals at Azi's restaurant (nearby the retreat): food was super tasty, natural and healthy, so I highly suggest to try it! The staff also organized some short trips for us, such as sunset yoga at the Tip of Borneo and a picnic at a nearby beach where we could kayaking and snorkeling. Living in a hut is an amazing experience and makes you think about how we can reduce our impact on the environment. Additionally, the retreat organized free English class for local children which, once again, shows how 9huts are very committed in supporting the community. Super highly recommended retreat!!!

"wonder-ful experience with incredible people"

Very nice, caring Team. They even ask about your experience and allergies up front so that they are best prepared for you upon arrival.

Super communications via whatsapp was possible on arrival.

Yoga was excellent, Emilia made it possible to experience all levels of yoga (body, mind , soul,... ) and she was excellent in knowing just what to do in the moment- no 'prepared out of the book' flows or sessions jut incredible sensitive individual 'sessions'

Location is wonderful, infrastructure was great, food was very good.

The setting of this yoga retreat and the views are both breathtaking. The food is incredible, staff are super friendly and the Huts are really comfortable and spacious. The location is super remote with hardly any tourists which I loved. Marita was also a wonderful instructor.

"Yogaretreat to full satisfaction"

9 Huts on a Hill is a very nice and pleasent eco-accommodation at the top of Borneo, close to 'The Tip of Borneo'. Being a couple from Sweden the environment is very exotic and adventurous.

We landed in on the 5-day yogaretreat with high expectstions and were not dissapointed! On the contrary, we enjoyed every minute. Our yoga-instructor Jennie (Jennifer) held worldclass sessions, finetuning and adjusting to our level without making us feel at all uncomfortable. She keept us in very good mood and high spirits, inspiring us to go further all the time. We truley learned alot from her! Each pass was held open-air, with sea view both at sunrise and sunset.

The nice staff are very committed, genuine and hospitable. They had made a good, thoughtful schedule that also included crossfit sessions, massages and enjoyable vegetarian food.
