Perfectly relaxing, great staff, beautiful ocean”

The rooms are amazing with great views and amenities. The ocean is to die for, so private and warm. The staff were amazing and so helpful.

Our stay was amazing. We were staying there for a friends wedding at the Nexus hotel up the road. If you want somewhere peaceful and relaxing to stay with wonderful staff I would definitely recommend Borneo Beach Villas. The resorts close by are nothing compared to these villas. We had the beach to ourself most of the time making you feel like you were on a secluded island. The ocean was calm and when we didn't feel like being there we'd dip in the pool at the villa. I will definitely be returning here with my family in the future to visit Gary and the staff. Although it's a little way away from the city centre it's well worth it for anyone wanting to spend time in the ocean on a holiday. Much nicer than island hopping to get some beach time in while you're in Kota Kinabalu.

Away from bustling city life. Calm, quiet and serene”

Kota kinabalu is very busy during the day and very much alive during night. After spending some time there, if you want to go to a quiet place and relax, then Borneo beach villa is one such place. It is located about 30 minutes drive from KK near One Borneo city. The place consists of pool villas as well as apartment suites. The property is somewhat old, but its clean and nicely managed. It has got a nice and clean shoreline. There are various water sports activities , availability is subject to weather conditions. On the property there are various services like cafe, spa, massage available (you will have to pay for it, rates are moderately higher than usual price in KK). BBV also has a shuttle service available to KK and One Borneo city at fair rates, so in case you want to go to the city, you can hop on to the bus. The staff is very courteous and helpful. Overall its value for money. Let it be a romantic trip for a couple or an outing for a family, BBV has covered it all :)

If you want somewhere out of busy city, this is it!”

Right next to the beach, with beautiful garden, Borneo Beach Villa is very nice place to chill and rest. This place is around 40 minuets away from the downtown of Kota Kinabalu, and around an hour away from the airport which costed us RM100(one way/ limo taxi) to go out to town. As a result, no restaurant near here. We brought some groceries to here and cooked for one day. We stayed at Spa Hotel, and the hotel was big enough to stay for 5 of us. Room was very clean despite of its old facility. We could enjoy the beautiful view of the resort and beach from our room. The tide was loud but with windows close, it wasn't bad. The garden and pool are also under good maintenance. However, as it is a summer country, I saw some roaches everywhere like in a hallway or even in our room. Breakfast is provided at a cafe right next to the reception(which is one of the villa) and it was not bad. Just simple buffet type breakfast with cereals, toasts, some warm foods and drinks. Generally it was a good place to stay. Worth the price definitely.

Perfect family retreat”

Even though the location is far away (abt 20km) from the main town of KK and Borneo, it is actually a short and easy drive. Afterall, this is a perfect place to be away from the bustling city where u get vert close to the sun, sand & sea. The sunset was a beauty looking straight into our villa. I am so glad to have spent such a quiet & quality time with my wife & 2yo son. As in almost every such premise, just be prepared for the insects & mosquito which, a good thing, appears mostly after 7pm. Hotel was good to standby mosquito coil in the villa which we eventually didn't use. The facility is very well maintain & the beach is so clean. I am reserving my last part of my review for the ever friendly, polite, excellent staff which made our stay smooth & great. I am already looking forward to spending a longer vacation in Sabah & most of my stay will be at Borneo Beach Villa. Looking forward to a wonderful family retreat in the near future. 2 thumbs up.

A luxury stay at very reasonable price”

A luxurious stay in a high quality beach-front spa villa, overlooking the pool & the stunning South China Sea. We loved every moment and will definitely return. From the environment to the friendly, professional staff, the great food at the small Cafe restaurant, introduced by Dean, and the wonderfully Long Beach, it was a totally relaxing time away from the hustle & bustle. Borneo Beach Villas is a short walk to Nexus Resort if you want to choose from a number of restaurants. It also offers water sport & tour activities if you need these. Our room was superb with a spa & steam room, cooking facilities if you want to take your own supplies & relaxing outdoor patio for watching the changing sea & ships passing. A magnificent stay.

Perfect Getaway”

1. Location 2. Hotel Staff 3. Value for Money

Spent a week in the spa suite apartments for the family and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The location was ideal for those seeking to get away from the busy city, while still remain close to amenities. We rented a car at affordable rates from a local car rental company, and used a mobile app called WAZE to get around - driving around was easy since the app had the most accurate and up-to-date information. Having spent 7 days in the resort, we got around easily to the local restaurants for the best seafood - very cheap and fresh. Check out Gayang Restaurant and their cheap and fresh lobsters and crabs. Convenience shops like 7-11 were everywhere and there is a large supermarket called GIANT just 10 mins from the resort (google "Taman Indah Permai"). Our younger son (age 5) caught a cold and there's a very good and experienced paediatrician called Dr Jeffrey Soon about 30 mins drive away (Lot 66, Lrg Zirafah 10A , Taman Layang Layang , Luyang, 88300 Kota KInabalu), where we got him treated. Around the resort, there's a gorgeous golf course sandwiched between the mountain ridge and the beaches. And there's also a water theme park called "Lagoon Park", where we spent a day with water activities. Generally, while the resort may be about 45 mins drive from the city, there are enough facilities and things for my family to enjoy. The hotel staff were extremely prompt in their responsiveness to our requests (extra towels, utensils for cooking, etc). Very warm and friendly. The stringent security checkpoints also made us feel safe and secure throughout our stay. We had a good deal for this booking via Agoda. Paid for the price of a 4 star hotel but it really felt more like a 5 star. Highly recommended for couples looking for a private place as well as for families looking to get some peace and quiet.

review”

Borneo Beach Villa is the best resort in the world. I would like to recommend it to the people around me. It is the best for quiet recreation with outstanding scenic families. However, it is only about 40 minutes to get to the center of sightseeing such as Sabah City, shopping center and Jecheon Hopping Tour, which is the center of Kota Kinabalu, and it costs about taxi expenses and other facilities. However, a hotel employee named Wahab who guided me to the room is not forgotten. We greet our customers with smiles, kindness, positive attitude, give various help and give personal SNS so that we can contact them at all times, helping to resolve various inconveniences in city sightseeing and shopping ...

Great place to get away from city”

The resort is like small village rather, nature friendly - with other leisure activities in the NEXUS Resort right next to it. It is 30 minutes away from Kota Kinabalu downtown, if you'd like to relax and seek for peaceful place, Borneo Beach Villa is perfect one. Only thing is there is no wifi, no cable connection (perhaps during our stay only?) and frequent power cut.

Recommended for a peaceful stay”

Stayed at the beachfront villa for 5 nights after climbing Mt Kinabalu, and was rewarded with beautiful views and sound of the ocean. Villa is decently furnished, and there is a basic gym & spa. Food at the BBV cafe was above avg though after multiple meals (it is the sole option on the premises), naturally we ventured out to the city a number of times (Grab or villa arranged is reasonably priced). Staff are enthusiastic, and we were grateful for the fantastic service and warm smiles. The only negative aspect of the place (not within the control of managemen) - the behaviour of other guests. As our villa was next to the public space and by the beach, other guests felt fit to waltz into our villa's premises to use the garden hose to wash off sand, to eat and litter the grounds with their leftover food attracting unwanted pests. Post our feedback, management used tape to cordone off the area from the public but hope they look into a more pemanent solution. Overall, happy to return.

I was so happy and moved.”

Both hotel rooms and facilities were good, One of them was the service of the employees. On the day of the check-out, we had a lot of difficulties, and we talked to Wahab, a staff member of the Borneo Beach Villas Hotel, and he was happy to personally help us. It's been an unforgettable trip and I'd like to recommend this accommodation to other travelers. Take care, Wahab☺

Perfect hotel for relax on the beach”

The beach is beautiful, and most of the time we were the only one in the sea, so had a private beach experience. 95% of tourist are from china or malaysia and they cannot swim. Ocean is for the few europeans. We could organize all programs from the hotel, there is a local tourist office, so no need to go to Kota Kinabalu city. We also organized there a private trip to Kinabalu park. Breakfast is great. We ate dinner at hotel restaurant, was delucious but bit expensive vs in city. The aparment was huge, with 2 bathrooms and a kitchen, balkon facing to the sea where we enjoyed sunset.

Very Relaxing and Excellent for Kids”

We came with 3 grandchildren aged between 2 to 6 (and their parents). We had a 3-bedroom villa. The pool by the living room was excellent for the kids, as was the large grassland behind the villa, and the private beach beyond the grassland. The BBV cafe served good food at inexpensive prices (and the kids can walk to the cafe over the grassland instead of on the road). The only problem is that there were too many flies during lunch time, but later we moved indoor and the problem goes away. The resort is quite far from the city centre, but the concierge helped us book a van (with driver) at a very reasonable rate (for a full day), and we spent a day at the UNESCO Kinabalu Park and another day at the Sabah Museum and the Floating Mosque. It was a thoroughly enjoyable stay and we will definitely come again.

beautiful private beach and huge villa”

Huge villa with private pool abd huge bathtub. Its my second time here for the 2 consecutive year. My kids love the private pool and us adult love the beachfront villa with a beautiful sunset view. I even believe the beach view is like Bali but u are actually in Kota Kinabalu. Worth every penny. This villa is very near to my heart and I always look forward to visit here during my next visit in KK.

Ideal getaway”

We had a wonderful relaxing vacation here in Borneo Beach Villas. Stayed in a one room apartment unit which was very comfortable for us (me, husband and son). Rooms are clean and well maintained. Kitchen well equipped to cook. It is in a secluded location but food is available a 15-20minute drive out (Pizza hut, kfc, mcd, local restaurants) for those who do not want to dine in or cook. The beach and sunset view was to us the best part of our stay here. The beach is very clean and not crowded. Would definitely come back again.

Relaxing Stay”

We really enjoyed our stay at Borneo Beach Villas. The 2 bed villa was a great size (4 adults) , facilities were good and the setting was very tranquil and relaxing. It's about a 40 minute drive into KK and taxi's were easy to book and very cheap. This made a few trips into the city managable (island hopping, night markets etc). The on site restaurant was great, but we also went to the larger resort (5 mins drive) for dinner one evening wich has lots of options. Supermarkets are a 20 min taxi journey away. The staff were very friendly and we would recommend staying here!

Paradise - Awesome staff, but a little far ”

Perfect spot, we were lucky to get a room on the top floor in a corner unit - best view ! Staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and kind. The facilities were well maintained, cleaning ladies were extremely neat and thorough, and even took care of some duties that were not their responsibility. Only downside is the distance from Kota Kinabalu. If your leave before 7am or head back after 8pm, it should only take 35min. During peak hours, 1.5hrs. That wasn't a big issue since Uber is quite cheap and easily available. I would definitely stay here again in the future!
