Breakfast was amazing, it was lovely to stay above water and the staff were exceptional. Additional items like the free cocktail were a lovely bonus. Overall we had a fantastic stay and wish it could have been longer
Continue to work on picking up the rubbish every day around the villas and on the beach to make the experience as pristine as possible
Beautiful scenery and setting Set in a marine conservation area, the resort is doing it's part for the marine life and local eco system and environment. Lovely, friendly staff who always spend the time to talk to and get to know their guests. Great service and good quality of food in restaurants, especially in the Macac for breakfast (those coconut pancakes!
A little bit difficult moving off the island, but to be expected. The hotel is off the coast of Kota Kinabalu and the only transport boats are organised and scheduled by the hotel.. So fixed timings. Some of the gloss had worn off a bit, and at times the rooms and some areas felt like they were overdue a freshen up and modernisation, but nothing too serious.
The location is stunning. The bed was also very comfortable and we enjoyed the diving facility on site. Though we didn’t use it, you can enjoy kayaks and paddle boarding free of charge, and the free drink in the ocean view bar between 5-7pm is good too!
The resort needs renovating, its a little tired. They also market themselves as ‘eco’ but every time the cleaners came to refresh the room they left the lights on, ceiling fan on and air conditioning blasting out - despite us being out all day.
Great view from ocean villa. Amazing shower. Interesting eco centre. Being able to visit sister resort and use their facilities.
1.30pm boat over to island but you can’t get into your room until 3
Wonderful luxurious spacious rooms
The gym is located at the sister resort with only 2 shuttles available each day and a journey time of 30mns each way
