In general it's great. Rooms were not renovated, lots of amenities were missing with bad locks / dryer. Smell was not pleasant indoor if the A/C was turned off. Staff were very friendly though. Hotel was quiet. Will come again but would be great if rooms were refurbished.

Great location, tired hotel

Location, sunset bar, staff
6.7
The whole hotel seemed tired and the rooms are in DESPERATE need of an update. The room smelled of mildew and the soft furnishings were visibly stained. There was a terrible clunky noise whenever the water was in use. We were also disappointed that the italian restaurant was closed which meant that food choice was quite limited. Having said that, we did have a pleasant stay and the staff at the hotel are a real credit, as well as the chance to watch the most beautiful sunset at the sunset bar.

Communication breakdowns and plumbing issues

beach, view, wildlife
5.7
The hotel is a big beach resort nestled away on a clean stretch of beach. The rooms are in good condition though the showers are a bit dribbly. One morning the water stopped completely so there was no running water or flushing loos which was very inconvenient. The desk staff are nice though the language barrier made communication difficult at times especially when you needed something fixed (like the plumbing). For a beach resort it is a nice facility.

Overated Resort

Beach, beach and beach
6.3
Not ideal for family with small kids as the pool is not covered. Malaysia's weather is too hot so outdoor activities for kids(if not shaded)is early morning until 10am and late evening begining 5pm. Room was a comfortable size but the bed was horrible, must have been the first bed the hotel ever purchased. There was a socket that was hanging out of the wall. And if you are a local customer, be prepared to be placed at the furthest part of the hotel, away from international guests. Unlike other 5 star hotel, there was no free internet. For the rate that i was charged for the room, we should have stayed in the city.

It was a great stay but the place seems so large for the entire staff to manage. Providing more training for staff would help. Everyone is extremely nice but no one truly in charge.

Solo stay at Nexus $150 SGD a night

Service / surroundings / spa

I relaxed at the resort for two days on my own. Solo travellers beware - If you are a party of 1 you have to pay for two people for an activity. The beach is peaceful and pretty standard. FOOD: The best food is at King Fisher restaurant but keep in mind it takes roughly 1 hour for food to arrive. To avoid a long wait, turn up at 6:30pm. At 8pm there is always a local performance and they like to involve the crowd too. The selection and quality of food from the pool bar is average and slow to deliver. There is a sunset bar by the beach as well. ACTIVITIES The highlight is the spa. If you pay for a treatment you can hang out in a lounge made for a goddess all day and use the spa facilities such as steam room and sauna. Again, the hotel does not particularly inform guests of this perk so I felt I figured it out all a bit too late. My facial itself wasn't fantastic but I gave them honest feedback which I hope they'll take into account. I also went on a nature trail in the morning which was meant to last 1.5 hours. I was the only person (so I had to pay for 2) and my trek lasted only 20 minutes - apparently there were issues with black cobras so most of the trail was cut off. Giving him the benefit of the doubt that this was true, I would have appreciated it if this was explained to me before I went on the “hike”. OUTSIDE There is a shuttle bus to the city centre. Takes 45 minutes and you have to pay for the bus which is a bit ridiculous. The drop off point is Centre Point. The malls in that area are depressing so get a cab to One Borneo if you can. You can take a taxi to The Shangri-la to see their orangutan sanctuary. It costs over 100 MYR by cab. Nexus has a lot of potential but I feel the management are quite unaware of it. This is definitely not a 5 star resort but has its 90s charm and in spite of a few flaws I had a great time. The attentive and sincere service and attractive surroundings more than makes up for any creases in the way this place is run.
