Welcome to Tenom Hotel & Information
Sabah Hotel by Area
Tenom is a small town in the Interior District of Sabah and it is also the centre of the Murut, a group of hill tribes (Murut means "Men of the Hills"), who have lived in this region for times immemorial. Although many young people of the tribe have adopted the fast pace of a modern civilisation creeping inland from the capital, some of them still prefer the life in the jungle, hunting with a dog, a parang (machete) and maybe even their traditional blowpipe. Others have turned to cultivating the countryside growing a variety of crops, from rice over tobacco to coffee.
