it takes only 10-15 mimutes to city. The shuttle bus service is great and cheap (RM 3 per head). The room is ok, a very spacious balcony with very nice sea view. The breakfast is not so good. The choices of buffet breakfast is quite limited.

As mentioned above, the rooms are good, with nice view and the service level is good. Just a bit far away from the town centre, but if you intend to spend your time in the hotel, it would be an excellent choice!

The hotel was convenient and accessible. But the agoda who did the bookkeeping made me hard.”
The day before I traveled, I received a cancellation email from 'agoda' so I was so surprised. I made a mistake in agoda. They immediately confirmed and rescheduled the accommodation by rebooking.Other than that, hotel facilities and golf course are satisfactory.

Excellent Hotel in Strategic Location and a Beautiful Marina - Live Corals & Multitudes of Fishes”
Picturesque view of the Marina from our Suite. Came for a family holiday and took 5 rooms. All 5 were tip-top in comfort, cleanliness and deco of the suites were 6 stars! Front desk staff as well as concierge staff were friendly and very helpful. Kudos to the Management of Magellan Sutera. Location too was perfect. Very close to airport as well as the town. I would definitely come stay at The Magellan if ever i pop back into KK. Thanks

Wonderful stay indeed!”
The food was superb! The place is amazing with views! Was not quite happy with the checking in process though when they asked for a separate voucher from an “agent” when i already produced the booking confirmation from agoda which never happened before at other hotels but the reception was really helpful so thank you! Apart from that, its a very beautiful hotel with peaceful ambience.

Average”
Location is good and near by city and airport. Good swimming pools for both kid and adult. Breakfast is just average. Good place to see the sunset. Facilities are old. There were smell and ants in the room. In the morning, you can feed fish at the harbor. Our kids spent an hour for feeding fish. Most problem was lack of staffs. But, staffs were kind and good. It was generally good. But price was too high considering of quality.

Relaxing place with a beautiful view and fantastic staff”
We stayed here on our last day in Kota Kinabalu after having to stay in a very busy and crowded area. I wish we had stayed here from day 1 of our trip! The view was beautiful, and all the friendly staff made us feel very welcome. My husband had accidentally left his phone in our room after we had checked out and left the hotel, but the housekeeping staff found it and we were able to get it back from the receptionist. Honestly the best hotel we've stayed at so far in KK and will definitely stay here again when we come back.

Can't get much better than this place”
My wife, sister-in-law, her husband, their niece, and I all went here for a 5 day restful vacation. We got adjoining rooms in the resort, and it was well worth the money. The pools were always clean and cool, the rooms were great, and the service was awesome. At the Sutera, you are at most a 10 minute ride from just about anyplace you'd want to go, with the Imago mall literally right next to the golf course and the old townish kinda area just a 6-7 minute ride away. Download Grab (an Uber-like taxi application) before you go and you are pretty much set for a restful, relaxing stay.

Great hotel with plenty of pools and sun loungers. Excellent location and staff couldn’t be more helpful. Lots of choice for breakfast although the evening meals not so great and quite expensive for what’s on offer. Ruby spa brilliant Only problem we had was the access for a push chair.... no ramps anywhere in the hotel! With the Carpark being at the very bottom of the staircase to heaven the only choice is to walk up the car access ramp. Only found 2 lifts side by side in the whole main complex other than that was brilliant

Way better than Shangrila”
I have stayed both in Magellan Sutera and Shangri-la Tanjung Aru, and Sutera was a way better choice. While i have experienced the worst service at Shangri-la(waited for a check-in for 2 hours, never been apologized, had to wait for half an hour to get a bottle of beer, waited for About 20 minutes to pay with credit card), Sutera had spacious rooms, all the staff were nice and kind, and had excellent facilities. I will definately would like to visit Sutera again. For those considering between Sutera and Shangri-la, I would say Shangri-la is not worth a consideration, just choose Sutera and visit Tanjung Aru beach at sunset hours.

Great Facility with three hotels together”
Great place. Lots to walk around and lots to do. Remember to ask about what is happening at the front desk. We forgot to do that and have to slowly discover as we walk around the place. The hotel is clean. And not much bugs given it is a tropical area. Interior of the room is a bit dated. But given that it is such a big room and big facility, good enough to compensate. I would come back again. And next time might try the golf course

clubRoom service awful!!”
From the moment we checked into the club house, the receptionist's facial expression was angry. I felt bad about receiving a service. After that, the receptionist was unfriendly to everyone when 'HappyHour"time. We called her several times when we were sitting on the table, but she pretended not even see it. (~more times) It was the worst.

Quite good but,”
The resort is specially for Family group, not for person. It is good to relax and enjoy swimming. BUT, payment system is not so good.. We couldn't tell and pay with our room number, we should pay cash for each place. Moreover, food is low-level. It is better to go eat outside.

No water supply.”
Overall is good, except for the day before I left to airport. My flight to my home country is 6am, when I'm ready to brush and wash up, there's no water supply. I was very disappointed as water supply is a common stuff and shouldn't happened at 5 star hotel. I hope it doesn't happen again for those who leaving early to the airport.

I booked an executive suite. It was pricey but worth it as there is a king sized bed, 2 day beds that can fit average sized person, 2 toilets, nice living room, pantry and balcony. Best was use of the club lounge for breakfast and drinks throughout the day. I love the location and all facilities are well maintained. I will definitely come back again!

The resort boasts three fantastic swimming pools , great restruarants and is a hop skip and jump from local islands and KK's fabululous sea food market. Resort was very clean and all the staff really put themselves out to help and make our stay very enjoyable. We be back for sure , highly reccomennded.
