GENERAL INFO €I had a great one night stay end of December with Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu €Great price due to reopening promotion. Booking made through Bonvoy apps as Platinum member €Right in city centre and beside the sea. Rooftop bar is great for sunset and cocktail REVIEW €Quick and friendly check in €Lobby is classy with ample seats €Concierge is very helpful. Always open the door and greet their visitors €I got an upgrade to sea view Le Meridien suite. Small window for view €The bidet with seat heater and warm water €Unbeatable Malin+Goetz toiletries €Come with free breakfast at lounge. Latest Recipe currently still close €Steam room not able to use at the moment. Swimming pool is unmanned €Free parking for guest €Pro tips: Walk to opposite open air night market for seafood galore

Visited here for a drink with a sunset view and was not disappointed. The pool area is a little small but if it's not busy has enough space for everyone to grab a good spot. Would highly recommend the rum in fresh coconut! YUM

Fully recommended!!!!! Experiencing KK at it finest hour and time? Definitely Le Meridian KK would be the top of the list. Having the room to be upgraded to Seaview Vista is an unforgettable moment for the stay. Anyone can enjoy the sunset view at the ease of your own room. Better experience definitely from the lounge itself. Having the most spectacular view facing the KK seafront, definitely Le Meridian KK will give some spectaculars scenaries of KK. Believe me, if you are a SocMed enthusiast, definitely Le Meridian KK should be your top of list for the stay. Newly refurbished room with varieties of channel even make your stay even better. 5 star comfy bed & pillows definitely will vanish the day fatigue of your daily activities. Located at at heart of KK, u can have a daily tripping trip to the iconic islands of KK at your own convenient time. Most importantly what distinguish Le Meridian KK from other hotels are definitely the great & warm hospitality of the staffs. Thanks to Mr Rizan & the team ( Reazie at the front desk, Afif & Rodney at the lounge & not forgotten other staffs for being the front liner of the hotel) for their 24-7 assistance. The staff are soooo friendly and happy to assist at any time and will go out of your way to make your stay a memorable one. Not to forget, the concierge and Front desk Team who's never tired to give a big welcoming smile, which will made your day right away. Coming back to KK? Definitely Le Meridian KK would be the top in my list for the future stay. (^^,)

Period of stay: August, 2020. Purpose of stay: Great School holiday and birthday Our room: Originally booked a Suite Urban City View room, I get a complimentary upgrade to Suite Vista Room Sea view high-floor (11th floor). Pro(s): 1. This is my second stay this year at this hotel, this time it's longer and much better! The RMCO SOP is observed and practiced nicely here. 2. Easy check-in process, I did an mobile online check-in thru Marriott Bonvoy app earlier. Upon arriving at the hotel, I requested a way to the Club Lounge from a staff at the lobby but told that the Club Lounge no longer handles Club/Suite check-ins (probably due to Covid-19 pandemic). Malcolm greeted me and handles my reservation quickly. He also gave me a couple of welcome cookies mini jars. My check-in process lasted for a mere 2-3 minutes! He also told me that my room was upgraded to a Vista Suite and granting me a roller bed, well done! 3. The club lounge actually is a hotel's main restaurant for the moment as the Latest Recipe located at the main lobby is closed. We loved our daily breakfast here! It happens that the Latest Recipe Restaurant Manager (Mr Roger) was relocated here together with his team. He handled our breakfast daily flawlessly together with his amazing team members, namely Farihah, Nuramin, Kamalul, Yvonne, Vanessa and Anne. The assistant Chefs (Ikhwan and Hidayah) were cheerful too! Breakfast quality is great! 8/10 3. The room is much better and more spacious than the room we stayed on February as it is a suite (84sqm.) My stay was initially a 4-night, but I got this extended one more night as my Family and I really enjoyed our time here! Ms Shirley at the reception handled my extension request pretty well! 4. Housekeeping work is flawless! 5. We had an All-You-Can-Eat Weekend Lunch once at Azure Pool Bar and Cafe located next to the swimming pool on 2nd floor and it was great! Mr Roger also happened to be there and quickly serving me nicely. This guys is everywhere! Food quality is great! 8/10 6. This time this hotel offers a free parking for hotel guests, I truly appreciate it! 7. I requested a birthday decoration for my daughter's birthday and the hotel didn't disappoint! We loved the birthday note, birthday signs, balloons and complimentary cake slice to enjoy! 8. As I booked a suite that comes with lounge access, the hotel offers a daily Ala carte cocktail-hour at the Club Lounge. We enjoyed the sunset view every time we had cocktail-hour there! 9. I also utilized a complimentary cloth-pressing as it comes with suite-room booking, the housekeeping team did their job pretty good. 10. Finally, check-out process was a breeze. Shirley again handles my expedited check-out gracefully. Feature(s) (Not necessarily cons): 1. Latest Recipe restaurant, Rooftop bar and Fitness centre as well as sauna is closed. Con(s). 1. The bath tub was quite small. Not really comfortable even for average-sized Asian like me. Perhaps on next renovation, the hotel might consider of replacing the old one to a bigger size bath tub like Hilton KK next door. 2. The Club Lounge disappointingly became very noisy during breakfast and cocktail-hour as some of the patrons can't control their voices and laughter (it has become a temporary restaurant where people can come and go at ease with no usual smart-casual attire requirement instead of the real club lounge). Pretty disturbing actually as I understand it was really a club lounge before, therefore usually it was calm and quiet. Hopefully when the Latest Recipe is reopening, the Club Lounge will revert back to it's peaceful atmosphere. Summary: My family and I really enjoyed our 5-night stay at the hotel. We truly appreciate the hotel's amazing and near-flawless hospitality. Will surely come and stay here again in the near future!
