Borneo Royale Hotel
Tawau,Tawau - View on map
"It was really good. My family and I went over for around 1 week to settle some mind boggling matters and the stay here was really relaxing easing our stress and pressure. The view was wonderful especially that we had a high-floor room with windows all over giving us a panoramic view of the deep ocean and majestic mountains. The service was impeccable! It was Chinese New Year and Tawau was much a ghost town and taxi was no where to be found at night. We were stuck at the hospital in the middle of the night thinking that we r going walking back to the hotel. But I thought to try my luck and called the hotel. Although I could not really understand them due to the heavy accent, but they came by the hospital within 10 minutes an brought us back safe and sound in a huge MPV. i felt so happy with them and although so late at night, they still served with a smile. The breakfast and dinner were superb too. loads of variety of very good quality. And the view from the restaurant was so good too. On the 3rd day of our stay, I was feeling a little bored and went for a little work after some business and found a shopping mall linked to the hotel. Even bought a blouse there. The hotel made an otherwise difficult time very much pleasant and relaxing. Thanks to the staff and their great service. Wld definitely go back to this hotel. The best in Tawau!"

"The room is very clean and tidy, it’s also very wide and large. We’re very satisfied with the best cost performance. Breakfast is unexpectedly good. It only take us 35 minutes to the Tawau airport. There’re also a lot of wonderful handicraft stores near the hotel. Foods in this town are very delicious and cheap."

Shervinton Executive Boutique Hotel
Tawau,Tawau - View on map
"I stayed in this hotel on business, so I only used the room to sleep and to do some paperwork. I liked the patient and helpful staff. Dealt with counter staff (who processed my check in with the Agoda voucher) and maintenance (silly me didn't know how to switch the TV on!) and breakfast people. Breakfast offered were more than enough for me. Noodles, rice, bread, porridge + condiments, fluffy buns, croissants, chicken, eggs, juices, tea, coffee.. Location was perfect for me, as there was a taxi stand next to the hotel, as well as a supermarket in the next block. To potential customers, many hotels in Tawau are part of shop blocks and this hotel is the same. In the same block were a few eating places and I highly recommend 'Restoran Ingat' for its tasty dishes. Not kosher though ('halal'). The 'interesting' bit was the bathroom. It was an open plan one (!) and only a curtain separated the toilet from the room. The shower cubicle had frosted glass. If my roommate were my husband, it would pose no problem. But if my roommate were my colleague... hmm, there just may be some issues. Especially if I were to suffer a bad stomach upset and spend a productive time on the throne.. hahaha. Anyway I was alone in the room so productive times weren't an issue. My other business colleague had a bathroom with a door, by the way. So maybe I got the honeymoon room "

svok hotel
Tawau,Tawau - View on map
"This hotel is perfect...I’ve stayed in many places and in KK too and this is without a doubt the most stylish of them all. It’s brand new and exceptionally clean...love all the stylish details even the cute chair hook at the back of the bathroom door! Plus a super strong hairdryer in the bathroom. Staff are lovely and friendly and it’s situated in a very modern area with tons of places to eat and bubble tea shops if you like that! Would HIGHLY recommend Svok :) I will be back next time in Tawau "

"Great hotel in Tawau, all new and beautifully designed. Not much in the area as it is out of town but great coffee shop, tea shops and a few restaurants and banks around as it is out of the centre of tawau. Great for transferring in and out of Tawau for diving, definitely recommended. "

"There is not too much choice for hotels in Tawau, and I am glad I stayed here. This hotel is very cheap compared to the quality. The room is nice, the bathroom is surprisingly good quality, the bed is firm, what else do you need? Maybe breakfast, which they unfortunately do not have."

King Park Hotel Tawau

"Kitchen crew was a bit clueless and it became a bit hectic when i can literally heard all of the conversation in the kitchen and the counter about what is the 'bizarre' thing going on in the hotel dining hall. It seems like i was the only hotel guest to ever grace the kitchen. However the food was great! The kitchen staff need more training "

More about Tawau

Located on the island of Borneo in Malaysia, Tawau is one of the largest towns in the state of Sabah. The town is served by Tawau Airport, which is a popular hub for flights from Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu, as well as limited flights from Singapore. This town is an important transportation hub not only for these cities but also serves as a gateway to popular vacation islands such as Nunukan and Sebatik, as well as many others.

This mountainous region is home to the majority of Malaysia’s cocoa farming and lumber industry, so a visit to the Teck Guan Cocoa Museum to learn more about cocoa farming is highly recommended. Besides exploring the cocoa farms and the museum, take some time to enjoy the region’s natural beauty by visiting the Tawau Hills National Park. The national park is a great place for hiking and trekking enthusiasts, and the peaks offer spectacular views of the beautiful nature below.

The Tawau town center is a bustling place, filled with many dining and entertainment options from the diverse cultures who all call this region home. The town’s concentration of Indonesian residents also makes it easy to find authentic Indonesian dishes in many of the eateries.
