A luxurious five star hotel with fabulous sea view. Restaurants are offering great variety of fine dining. The location is great and accessible easily by major road from Kota Kinabalu City centre. Highly recommended for leisure or business.

The hotel is fairly old with old set-ups, but it was clean and well maintained. The location from the center is far if you plan to walk (for a family) but Grab/Uber is available and easy to hire. Cheaper too!More
