BLOOD SUCKER SUTERA SANCTUARY LODGE

WORLD HERITAGE- MOUNT KINABALU

rain 27 °C

Let me tell u about SUTERA SANCTUARY LODGE: BLOOD SUCKER

1. Before 2008... the Accommodation price only
RM3/person... then increased to RM12/Person... RM18/person... RM30/person....

2. Start on the 18th Jan 2008, SUTERA SANCTUARY started selling new package.. Forcing climbers to buy the new package... included the meals...
the price increase more than 6times.... from RM30/person to RM188/person....

3. Now, they start selling at RM290/person for Gunting Langadan/non-heater room.... and RM350/person for Laban Rata... for the year of 2009....

but,

i am wonders...
1. How can the Ministry Of Tourism approved this new rate?
2. Ministry dont know? Not care about the locals? Not care about the Climbers? Not care about Tour Company?
3. Ministry involve in C........N???
PLS TAKE SOME ACTION ON IT??? BN ALREADY LOSE CONFIDENT IN PENINSULAR!!!!! U want SABAH to be the next?

by the way!!!
1. Sabah Parks is doing good work to limit the climbing permit, 146/day!
2. Because they really doing conservation work in The World Heritage- Kinabalu Park...
3. According to the experts... the carrying capacity of the mount kinabalu only allow 146climbers/day!!!
GOOD JOB SABAH PARKS!!!

And,
1. A lot of tour and travels company cant survive with this new rate!
2. How can a tour company requet from the guest after confirmed booking or fully paid the tour package fee???
Eg"Sorry boss, Sutera Sanctuary increase from RM30-188... so our company need to increase another RM160/person in ur package.... i am very sorry for the inconvinient..."
3. The locals have no more chance to climb MOunt kinabalu- The first World Heritage in Malaysia!!! because of the BURDEN accommodation package!!!
MOST OF THE NEW ESTABLISH COMPANY WILL FACE BANKRUPCY!!!

How can a company profit but burden all the Travel Companies?
1. SSL bring more rubbish into the park than the improvement in facilities... because selling new package with Pack lunch which is included... plastic, Tapperware, aluminium foil, plactic water Bottle with the Sutera Sanctuary Brand, 100plus tin......
2. All the travels companies going to bankrupt because of the Selfish SuteraSanctuary!!!
PLS TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THAT MOUNT KINABALU IS NOT BELONGS TO SUTERA SANCTUARY OR SUTERA HABOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT IS BELONGS TO ALL MALAYSIAN.... AND ALSO ALL MANKIND!!!

STGA(Sabah Tourist Guide Association):
1. What is ur comment?
2. No action taken?
3. How can the Tourist Guide survive?
WHAT FOR FORMING UP A ASSOCIATION AND NO ACTION TAKEN???
