closed to beautiful nature, relaxed and comfort”

well trained staffs, fantastic beach,swimming pool and golf field, comfortable bed

I really enjoyed my stay in Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai,the beach is fantastic with fine sands and I have morning & night run around the beach with bare feet! I stay in the ocean wing building with nice view of the beach and garden! I can heard the bird singging in the morning, I really appreciated the hotle give me the chance to get closed to the nature, either a nice walk around the beach or golf field, I feld rewarded and a nice ge away from the concret jungle. I don't agree with other reviewers, I don't think the furnitures are old but instead I think they are vintage styled and colored and I really the spacious room! The staffs are always with smile and pro-active and ready to give help. I have seem a few gardeners work in the garden, cleaning the leaves and rubishes, trimming the leaves on trees etc, Hopefully I will see a neater garden next time when i return! the most rewarding of this hotel is it offers the guests the opportunity to get closer to the nature, because it has a huge beatufil golf field, nice big garden and clean fine-sand beach! I think this hotle is bigger than the down town hotel. I would prefer stayed more time in this hotel rather going to down town,

Nexus resort... beyond expectations”

I am very satisfied with their service and facilities.. With the room rate agoda gave us, I was expecting nexus resort is just another ordinary beach front resort. Hey, Nexus did disppoint us. It is far more than just a beach front resort. They have a lot to offer. They have 5 restaurants in their resort, a spa equipped and designed to make you feel more relaxed and sort of a VIP. A shuttle service to move you around the resort. Their beach, made me decide to visit again kota kinabalu. Despite of having beautiful beaches here in the Philippines, it calls me to go back. Indeed rumors are true that kota kinabalu have very nice beach, not polluted, fine white sand, all these infront of nexus resort. Staff were very kind and helpful.

City Getaway to Private Sandy Beach”

Privacy, beautiful sunny beach and the friendliness of staff

Nexus Resort & Spa is in Karambunai which is 20-30mins drive from Kota Kinabalu town. Apart from a resort nestled in Karambunai, there is not much to do in this quiet and serene town. This resort has a very beautiful beach with powdery fine sand. Highly recommended for those who would like to have a good sun tanning. The sea is clean which will makes you spend hours and hours at the beach. However, the down side of the resort is the swimming pool. I find that the swimming pool isn't taken care well. Therefore, I prefer the beach more than the pool.

Paradise!”

Stunning private beach with the bluest waters, superb facilities (swimming pools, lots of sport activities, spa etc), and the most humble and polite staff.

It really is paradise there. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with cold towels and treat like royalty. We were upgraded rooms and driven there in the buggys they have - lovely start! Our room was beautiful. Absolutely spotless and very modern, the view of the ocean topped it all off. 5* room for certain! Upon walking round the resort to find our bearings we noticed everyday the hotel put on activities - cycling, kayaking, learn how to use chopsticks etc - all for free! They are super, and the staff taking the activities are so friendly and polite. Definitely a bonus when looking for things to do. Other than that you can pay the tiny fee of RM15 to hire the bikes or go kayaking etc. The gym there is free too and isn't bad at all! The breakfast buffet is great also, with a wide selection of Western and Asian foods. As usual the staff are just excellent and help with anything you desire! In terms of eating during the day there is a huge selection of restaurants (Chinese, Korean, Western, Malaysian etc) all at very reasonable prices. Particular highlights were the Sunset Bar (watch the gorgeous sunset with a drink and pizza) and the Kingfisher (Malay buffet restaurant). The kingfisher every night provide entertainment of Malay dancers, which are so very talented! A definite must see as they show off local tribal routines too. Overall we had the most relaxing and wonderful stay at this beautiful resort. It is so clean and well kept, I'm surprised more people don't know about it. It's not too far from the airport or Kota Kinabalu centre, but we didn't leave the resort at all as it was that nice! We definitely plan on returning.

Nexus Resort”

Stunning location situated on a long beach Beautiful, well kept grounds Large room with all amenities Lovely view from the room balcony, overlooking the beach and the lagoon of the hotel
On arrival the reception staff were unhelpful

When we arrived at the Nexus resort at 2:00am in the morning after a very long journey, we found the hotel receptionist to be very unhelpful, suggesting that we turn left and walk for 10 minutes to find our room! We had to ask for a bell boy to assist us with our luggage and show us where the room was. (we would not have been able to find the room ourselves). Fortunately this was an isolated incident, and although we were very unhappy with the receptionists attitude and service at the time, we were happy with the rest of the stay. The room was very spacious and comfortable with all amenities and a balcony that overlooked the long beach and the beautiful grounds in front of the hotel. There are several restaurants of which we ate in 4. The breakfast restaurant gets very busy, but the choice and quaility of food is very good. We ate in a sunset restaurant on the beach at lunchtime,a Chinese and a Meditteranean restaurant in the evening. All the restaurants have a good choice of menu and all the food was very good. The settings and theming of all restaurants are lovely and the staff were very tentitive and helpful. IWe would recommend eating in all of the restaurants. The prices were high compared to other places in Sabah, but I feel that the standards were also high in comparison to other places. The beach is vey long and sandy and when we were there, had huge waves which were great fun to play in. The grounds of the hotel are very well kept, and there is a lagoon that runs parallel to the beach, with trees and bridges, very picturesque. The hotel is 40 minutes out of Kota Kinabalu and isolated if you want to visit surrounding areas. The cost of taxis is high into KK. This wasn't a problem to us as we had already spent time in KK and at Sipadan prior to the Nexus. However, there are many activities provided by the hotel if you wish to participate, so shouldn't be bored. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Nexus Resort and would definately stay there again, des

Fine resort with great beach for reasoble price”

beach, ocean view, garden

Our stay in Nexus Resort was above our expectations. Though some areas need renovation (seems that it was not reconstructed since late 1990s), the overall state is quite satisfactory. The room was clean and specious, rooms service is on appropriate level. Our regular suite had a nice balcony with the adorable view to the ocean and partially to the garden. There were plenty of restaurants, including local, Chinese, Korean and European cuisines. The meals in the main Kingfisher was quite average and expensive, though other restaurants were fine, especially Chinese and the Sunset Bar. The hotel stuff was very nice and helpful. The thing that impresses the most is the beach spreading for several miles, which was almost empty of people (perhaps, it was not the hot season). We also liked the well-mantained garden with lots of birds and animals. Anyway, you can always find a hideaway place due to its size. There is no wi-fi in suites (you should ask for it in advance and leave a deposit). I’d like to recommend the hotel to have more water sports equipment (there was only one surf board) and more sun loungers. In general, the price/quality of the hotel is absolutely relevant, we will surely recommend this hotel to our friends.

A nice beach resort with many facilities”

Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is good, there are many facilities

We enjoyed our stay at the Nexus resort very much. The rooms were comfortable and well kept. The breakfast was good. The beach is good. There are many restaurants, sports facilities, staff are friendly. We used a car to go to Kota Kinabalu for dinner because we wanted to change a little bit but there would be no problem staying in the resort all the time if we were so inclined. It's located about 20 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu.

Rasa Ria Rival”

Beautiful location: deserted exotic beach with the warmest crystal clear waters, tropical lush landscape and attentive staff.

We were very impressed with the attentive staff, who gave us a warm welcome and made us feel very comfortable throughout our four days stay. The room in the garden block was superb; very spacious, comfortable and tastefully designed. We were even amused by the friendly bat hanging from the balcony rafters and leaving the remains of its fruit feast each morning. The location is unbeatable! We started our trip at Shangrila's a Rasa Ria and the beach here is far more accessible, perfect for swimming, and the pools are certainly less crowded. There was more of a natural feel that we enjoyed immensely, and we felt Znexus was far more superior to RasaRia and a far better price. Our only negative point is that food and beverage is still overpriced because we are in a 5 star resort - and would prefer a variety, where we could choose more economical restaurant options to got our budget as it's not so close to the town. We were very happy to end our magical holiday in Sabah, Borneo at Nexus resort after our incredible rainforest trekking at Kinabalu National Park

A perfect getaway for anyone!”

I never seen such a beautiful and perfect getaway resort like Nexus Karambunai. I had travelled and been to all 5 star resorts in Malaysia and with no doubt I can say this is the best. It is a perfect getaway for anyone. Sands are soft, beach is private and clean, all staff are super friendly and helpful, rooms are spacious, everything was perfect! Special thanks to the lady who had helped us with our check in who I forgot her name! Lovely girl, beautiful smile! We will return!!!

Great”

Nexus Resort & Spa was really a positive surprise for us. For the mature couple or family, this is a perfect place to spend vacation. Beautiful tropical surroundings, nice big rooms, a service minded staff, great morning buffet, affordable dining prices and an empty cold refrigerator ready in the rooms to be used for own beverages or to be filled-up by the dine-in support. For us it could not be better and we look forward to be back next time.

Wonderful resort reasonably priced”

Clean, nice facilities including gym, squash-court and several good restaurants. Well appointed garden design. Big and comfortable rooms.
None, except perhaps a bit far from Kota Konabalu downtown.

The Nexus resort is a wonderful place to spend your vacation. Initially we thought we would better stay in the nearby Shangri la on the same stretch of beach, but after having experienced the Nexus resort we have no regrets. We believe that Nexus would be better value for money. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are daily activities for kids and adults as well. There is a daily shuttle bus going to Kota Kinabalu (for shopping, massage, sea food,....) The beach bar is an excellent place to watch the sun set. We would anytime come back and really recommend this place.

We loved our stay at Nexus! ”

We had a 9 night stay at Nexus Resort! 2 adults/3 children! We booked garden view rooms and were very surprised to find out that we had been upgraded to ocean view rooms! The view was amazing! The rooms are as pictured! We were very happy with the level of cleanliness and service provided by the room staff! Complimentary bottles of water, tea/coffee facilities as well as a bar fridge! Cookies were also delivered most days! There is plenty to do at the resort, and our days were filled relaxing by the pools and ocean! The staff were amazing, they looked after us so well! They were genuinely friendly and engaging! There are plenty of food options, something for everyone! Buffet breakfast was included and there was plenty to choose from, it never got boring! I had an awesome massage at the spa, and would recommend trying at least one of their treatments! The only real downside is its location, it is not very close to shops etc! But for us this was fine, we were there to relax!
