A high-value accommodation experience.”

It is also considered as a one island one hotel, although it is not a private island, but it offers great value for money. The rooms are very spacious and clean, making for a comfortable stay. It is much more enjoyable than staying in the city center of Kota Kinabalu, and there are Nemo fish to be seen while snorkeling near the shore. However, there are two downsides: 1. The door locks in the Hill Villa are not very secure, which can be concerning. 2. There are not enough beach lounge chairs available.

Phenomenal service 👍”

The best thing about this trip was the staff’s phenomenal service, especially from Mr Redzuan. He was with us from the beginning of the journey to Manukan island until the final return trip to Marina jetty. They also provided a wheelchair for my dad who had a stroke a few months ago but could walk, except his osteoarthritis plus gout attack had caused him some difficulty walking on that particular day. All the staff on the island had been very accommodating in ensuring my dad’s comfort. Mr Redzuan and also Mr Azrul went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. The dinner was great with the beautiful serenading from the three gentlemen. The breakfast meal on the following morning was fulfilling with endless coffee/tea and juice/milk that we could order. Lunch (mamak mee and neopolitan spaghetti for my parents) was delicious while we waited for our boat ride back to KK. Highly recommend to anyone with elderly parents to come here and stay a night or two. The beds and pillows were comfortable. Even the extra mattress. The toilet which consisted of the wet and dry area was huge. The entire beach house was clean and lovely. Except the phone in my room that I shared with my sister had a nest of ants residing there for god knows how long. But the staff quickly replaced the phone. There were some snakes at our stairs and we were told they were harmless. The security guard had quickly remove them. So expect to share your balcony and stairs with non-poisonous snakes and non-harmful carpenter’s bees. At night it was so peaceful and in the morning, all I could hear was the sound of waves. This place is perfect for a weekend getaway if you don’t mind sharing the beach with outsiders but by 3-4pm, you get the beach to yourself even up until the next morning. My family and I went to soak in the morning sea and had tea on the beach. I felt that had been the most pleasant morning we had had since the pandemic. Overall, great place with a fantastic staff, particu

Worth for money”

We was staying at beach suite with 2 way boat transfer . room is big with beautiful sea view .. The sea is very clean and we can enjoy the water activities like parasailing , banana boat. Ensure take the package for sea walk , can see Nemo and they will take video and photo of us , once we complete 30min sea walk, they will transfer all those video and picture to us so no need to worry If u never bring phone along ... Got swimming pool also .. Life guards always in standby mode so u can enjoy in sea even though don't know swimming (ensure wear life jacket, free for those staying). 630pm can view a beautiful sunset and 6am can view sunrise ... We even saw big female shark in the early morning ... So sleep early and wake up early so that u can enjoy the beauty of nature.. They have their own restaurant , food taste good but not much choices . the staff are very kind and polite ... They ensure we are completely comfortable . once book the hotel we fix the ferry transfer time also since our return flight at 12pm . they ensure we reach the harbour on time , their ferry is flexible ... Me and my husband really enjoyed staying here .. Its really worth for money ..

코타키나발루에 숙박한다면 추천합니다”

프라이빗 비치와 아름다운 야경. 이 말로 숙소를 전부 설명할 수 있습니다. 그리고 이 둘만으로도 숙소는 가치를 전부 했다고 생각합니다. 숙소의 시설은 깨끗하고 잘 정비되어 있습니다. 다만 욕실만큼은 오래되었다는 것이 느껴집니다. 깔끔하고 모던한 숙소에 익숙한 젊은 층의 한국인에게 욕실은 조금 당황스러울 수 있을 것 같습니다. 프라이빗 비치와 야경의 효용을 높게 평가한만큼 힐사이드 빌라를 추천합니다. 힐사이드 빌라는 계단이 많아 들어가고 나오기는 힘들지만 뷰와 프라이빗 비치로의 접근성이 좋습니다. 매점은 밤 10시경 닫습니다. 술을 좋아한다면 (힘들겠지만) 섬 밖에서 사가는 것을 추천합니다. 섬에 들어가는 배는 생각만큼 좋진 않습니다. 운이 나쁘게 파도가 크게 치는 날 들어간다면 물이 튀어 옷이 젖을 수 있으니 젖어도 상관 없는 옷을 입는 게 좋을 것 같습니다. 참고로 저는 파도가 크게 치고 비가 오는 날 섬에 들어갔습니다. 저녁 식당에서의 메뉴는 한국인에게라면 볶음밥을 추천합니다. 무엇보다도 입에 맞을 것 같네요:)
