KOPEL's Training Hub

The spacious accommodation at Mandaa Kampung Stay is simple and clean and makes KOPEL’s Training Hub an ideal place for training programs outside of the main east coast city centres.


Located away from the noise and distractions of city locations, this peaceful location is ideal for experiential and immersive training programs.


Mandaa Kampung Stay complements the two Meeting Rooms and Training Halls at the KOPEL Office and the Smiling Boat Riverside Café for meals. The large open space under the Kinabatangan River Bridge is also a great additional space for outdoor activities, sports or team building events.

Large Semi-Covered Car Park

The large open parking space in front and centre of the KOPEL training hub is partly covered by the large Kinabatangan River bridge. This area provides great outdoor opportunities for team activities, breakout discussions, or even just playing team sports or games. Early morning Zumba or afternoon volleyball are great ways to keep everyone active and break-up more serious aspects of any training event.

Hybrid Training Programs

Combine your training program with a sunset wildlife river cruise or plant a tree in KOPEL’s conservation program. Visit the Supu caves, trek to the Summit of a Limestone Karst, or even organise a tailor-made team building program with the KOPEL team. There are a multitude of possibilities that all support one of the regions oldest running conservation projects. KOPEL’s Kinabatangan Training Hub provides wild opportunities for creative and bespoke training programs.
