Hotel Emas
Ranked #5 of 12 Hotels in Tawau Division
Reviewed 22 April 2016

The room is big and spacious. Iron board needs to be changed as the cover is torned. A lot of information has being provided in the room for review purposes. TV Programme are limited to few channels only, eventhough ASTRO guide has been provided, but didn't serve any purpose. Controling water temperature was a bit hard. Requested airport transfer but unable due to festive season.

Room Tip: rooms on the north is better .more quiet

It is a fairly dated hotel. The hotel is in the "old" part of town. To give an idea of how old the hotel was, the old airport was nearby this area before it was shifted 38km out of town. But, overall for a single occupancy rate, it is much better than most other hotels in this price range. I have stayed here many times, and the breakfast menu has not changed. I assure you it is a good spread for a free breakfast. The bedroom is clean and has a firm bed. Being an old building, the bathroom tiles has definitely seen better days. I could not figure out why there is no soap holder in the bath area.

I stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Emas. I used our company corporate rate which is just cost RM 98.00 per night. Room is a bit old but bathroom is big.
Wifi is not strong in the room.
However breakfast provided is the best in town, lots of foods is made from their own cocoa.

Stayed for 2 nights in the executive room.
Furnitures are obviously old and some of it may need to be changed.
Breakfast choices are plenty with combo of local and western.
Fruits are fresh.
The specialty here is their cocoa drink.
Made from well known sabah beans.
Plenty of products made from cocoa is readily available at the reception.
The absolutely wonderful for me are the spicy chilli chocolate & cocoa shower gel.
Must try item that you can't get anywhere else.
