About The Magellan Sutera


This ethnic-themed, gloriously designed resort incorporates the natural surroundings with fine timber furnishing and local artifacts. The grand entrance is a majestic longhouse-styled lobby, an architectural tribute to the Rungus natives of Sabah. All the 456 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites unveil balconies that offer magnificent views of either the carefully manicured gardens or the awe-inspiring beauty of the South China Sea and its occupying islands. Guests are a three-minute walk from the Sutera Harbor Golf Club and an 18-minute walk from Kinabalu Golf Course. Other than golf sites, State Mosque is only a kilometer and a half away, and Sand Bar can reaching in about 23 minutes. Whatever the reason for your stay, The Magellan Sutera will take you to the next level of comfort.

I had a nice trip with Magellan in Malaysia.
The Magellan Sutera resort has five beautiful swimming pool. Within the resort, you can also see the wonderful sunset of Kota Kinabalu. The resort is close to downtown. So you can enjoy many things outside the resort such as shopping, seafood or massage.

Pricey Peacefulness
To start with, this hotel is not for any ordinary locals to stay in. The price is more attractive to foreigners. On a positive note, you get what you pay for. First class room, facility, view, food (I missed the red fish during breakfast, dang!) and pleasing environment. I can only hope the front desk staffs could be more attentive and to approach the customers first during check-in/check-out time instead of us waiting and queuing for quite some time without anyone paying attention to us. This resort, in my honest opinion, is on par with some of the top resorts in other top tourist resorts in Langkawi. Recommended (if you can afford it).

Good resort nice staff but not efficiency
It is terrible that It take almost 2 hours to get my rooms. The rooms are not ready when I arrived hotel 2:00 pm. under My strongly request, I can get my room after one hour . Unfortunately, it is another terribly that one of the rooms still had guest inside. The reception did not handle immediately until I went to their reception desk to make complaint directly. You don't believe it is 5 star service. It is management and training problem . Others are good.
