We stayed here first time, we were greeted very well and all the staff were so friendly. Requested level 5 with great greenery view. The room is all clean and has many good facilities. On top of that, the selection foods in the menu of Tangerine restaurant are very quite delightful. The ovenbaked chicken with mozarella is a MUST TRY. Also, the hotel is very well located. Definitely will come again for next time :)

It's a great place to find and it's an easy-to-find location. The food served is very tasty and appetizing. For the room they have the newest room and the design of the room is very relaxed and elegant. Fell in love with this place and also want to come back and stay with them again soon.

It was my first time going to Sabah and honestly I was quite shocked by the people here especially those who work and stay at this hotel. All of them are from different races and backgrounds but I can see that none of that affect how they treat others.During my stay, the staffs here treated me and my wife so well. They're soooo friendly and I even became their friends. Other than the staffs being friendly and have a very nice smile (even though I can't see it because they were wearing mask), the food here is finger licking good!! Even the presentation of the food is great. Unlike other hotel that I stayed before, they only focus on either the taste or the presentation, hard to found where both are being focused. At the first look, I thought it might be very expensive but when I saw my bill oh lord it was very cheap and affordable compared to other hotels. I even took my chance to go to their swimming pool and their bar beside the swimming pool. The bartender was also very friendly and helpful for suggesting me to see the sunset at a beach called Tanjung Aru Beach if I'm not mistaken. Although the traffic at the area was a bit hard, it was worth the wait because the sunset was very beautiful. Last but finally of course their room. During my stay, I stayed at their newly renovated room. I could not believe my eyes when I saw what inside the room. They have a touchscreen mirror that have light and steam features at the bathroom???what???! Honestly I was a bit excited and acted like a kid for a minute. The bed was very comfortable and I had a veryy good long sleep. Perfect for someone like me who travels to many places and do physical activities during the travel. In a nutshell, this hotel is veryyyy veryy super duper great and I will come back here again next time for sure!

Stayed for 3 days in their newly renovated room at Level 4. The room is so clean and beautiful. All the staff I met are lovely and friendly. Just felt like home away from home. As for the foods, I had their Ramadan Buffet during my stay. The foods kept my tummy happy😋 desserts was delicious. Should’ve tried their bubur chacha but my stomach can’t fit that anymore 🥲 Overall is perfect 😍. Was a really great experience to stay here. Will recommend my friends to have a short stay over here when they come to KK!
