Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Kota Kinabalu (known as KK) is situated on the tropical island of Borneo, and is the state capital of the Malaysian state Sabah, which is one of the two states of East Malysia. The location of the city is absolutely amazing, facing the South China Sea and its many islands. KK is famous for the sea food, and particularly for lobsters.

Just around the corner of this peaceful city, you have long sandy beaches, paradise islands, virgin coral reefs, tropical rain forests and the famous Mount Kinabalu (South East Asia’s highest peak), only 90 minutes away.

To enjoy the city life and the gorgeous food, we stayed at Hyatt Regency Kinabalu, which is ideally situated right in the center of town, on the waterfront near the markets. Some of the rooms have been newly decorated with a unique view of the bay to enjoy the sun set.

If you feel a sudden need for a beach getaway or to play golf, then you check out the guestrooms, suites and luxury villas of Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai, located 30km away from the city. The location is absolutely stunning, amidst 3,335 acres of natural and landscaped surroundings. The award-winning 18-hole championship golf course and exclusive Borneo Spa complement the superb facilities of this magnificent resort which boasts eight restaurants and bars with all the leisure activities to enjoy a sunny day by the sea!
