The grand entrance is a majestic longhouse-styled lobby, an architectural tribute to the Rungus natives of Sabah. All the 456 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites unveil balconies that offer magnificent views of either the carefully manicured gardens or the awe-inspiring beauty of the South China Sea and its occupying islands. Guests are a three-minute walk from the Sutera Harbor Golf Club and an 18-minute walk from Kinabalu Golf Course. Other than golf sites, State Mosque is only a kilometer and a half away, and Sand Bar can reaching in about 23 minutes.

The hot water did not work. The aircond was slow.

Location and pool.
You need to ensure your room have enough lighting. The aircond was slow and the hot water was not working. The pastas and pizza were awesome but the drinka were bland.

Impressive even after all these years

Very friendly staff, nice deco and beddings, proximity to city and ease of access
I stayed at this hotel twice nearly a decade ago with my family and young children. I'm very happy that the standards and venue is kept in tip top condition. It's nice to come back after all these years and see that the place does not seem to age or deteriorate at all, if not better. Very impressive. Hope to stay again for a longer period.

Feels like a Shangri-la

location, surroundings, room
Needed an airport hotel and ended staying here. It was a very nice stay- felt like staying at a Shangri-la at 1/3 the price. My room was even cheaper than the Hyatt or Le Meridien hotels in downtown KK. Food options a plenty as well. Loved my stay and I wouldnt mind at all staying here again for vacay or for work.

Great stay

It's a great place to relax. The buffet is not that great, but the upscale restaurants are good quality
Close to the city if there is no traffic. Taxis overcharge a bit, but it's not tragic. Nice place to chill. The Italian restaurant is good but the buffet and the AlFresco restaurants are not great. Explore the place. There are lots of things to do there
