The hotel ocean wing rooms are excellent and have fabulous views of the beach and south. China sea. The staff went that little extra distance to be cortious, engaging and get your query answered or that extra dish or a coffee if you asked. It was a great escape to get away from city life and find time for ourselves in paradise.

I travel frequently & have stayed in a lot of good hotels, but I can say that the service levels were top class at this hotel, from the moment of arrival when they hit a bell when we entered the reception area - to the moment of departure when they took a last photo & waved us off. Very friendly, but genuine & not over the top. The hotel arranged our transport, but the reception staff knew who we were upon arrival & did everything to make our check in as quickly, comfortable & welcoming as possible for an early arrival & late departure. Also, they arranged the holidays excurions to Kota Kinabalu national park & to see the orangutans/jungle alongside the hotel, with the minimum of fuss. The resort is very scenic, with a beachside location & lush gardens. Tropical paradise. It is a distance to the town, but is a large enough resort to satisfy & met our requirements of a beach week interspersed with some actvity. You can take walks along the beach that can last for an hour. We stayed in a premier room in the Ocean wing. The room was fab, with a private outdoor bath & loungers perfect for enjoying a sunset view or simply chilling out. Plus having a separate swimming pool area, dedicated to the ocean wing was good & they made this better by bringing drink & food treats around during the day. The pool bar staff were very friendly. Wifi worked almost everywhere in resort & was complementary. The hotel is building a new wing alongside the Ocean wing, but the building work was not troublesome & is screened off. The hotel compensated for this, with a daily discount against food & drinks, but it was not a problem for us during the week. This situation could clearly change, depending on the stage of construction so I would recomend to check this ahead of travel. We had breakfast included at the Coast restaurant, with a good selection of food & a beautiful location overlooking the beach. We had lunch around the pool & the food was good. For dinner there was a choice of reastaurants, so it felt like a resort ( you can check the menus online). We particularly enjoyed dinner at the nann Indian & the Japanese Teppanyaki where they cooked in front of us, but all options were good - including room service. We did a trip to the KotaKinabalu national park & Poring hot springs. It's a full day out, due to the distances but worth it. We even saw a Rafflesia in bloom, did a very high canopy walk & had a good Chinese style lunch. From the hotels nature reserve, we did a 7:30 am jungle walk plus we saw the orangutans on another day. Both are recommended. Overall it was a great holiday, in a beautiful location. It was a great week away from a busy working life for me, but a lot of people chose this as a perfect location to celebrate a special event or to even get married. Perfect for all & that bit special. I would go back .
