very very very very nice hotel
The food, the service and the staff was all excellent and our rooms were great. We loved the hotel itself but we found the food, water and soft drinks way too expensive. Although there was a some live music in the bar at night, we would have liked some music or entertainment outside, perhaps on the beach or near the pools? We found that guests disappeared after dinner and we either went into town or had to go to our room to watch television.
Paradise - had stayed at other Shangri-LA, Rasa Ria, and found Tanjung Aru to be equally wonderful.
A Wonderful hotel with great view and good facilities. The best place in KK No.
Staff is always very friendly. Fantastic place to stay, with very comfortable rooms. The new spa (Chi) is great. Italian restaurant is quite expensive, while we did not think the food was very special. It missed the extra touch.
Joined some hotel activities such as bird watching, cooking etc and played tennis. Relaxed at the swimming pool. Checking in/out is too slow. Reception staff are not so efficient. The Managers are very nice though.
Comfortable resort and very friendly staff. Tanjung wing rooms were clean and spacious with nice views. Food and drinks were expensive especially when compared to the local prices.
Location and facilities were fantastic. Not quite the relaxing time expected. Plenty of families having lots of fun and making vibrant use of all of the activities / facilities.
Room service is great, good private jetty, and good spa The swimming pool is under renovation , but it didn't mark on booking.com ,jacuzzi and steam room were out of service during our stay, private beach is too small.
location and cleaness the limited restaurent choice
dejlig værelse og badeværelse, dejlig med Business center og at der er flere restauranter vælge imellem når der er lant til byen.
stranden er helt fantastisk og udsigten fra suiten er lækker. Jeg sys ikke helt billederne på hjemmesiden og de forventninger man har til stedet bliver helt opfyldt. Vi var mildest talt skuffet over det værelse vi fik til at starte med da det var fugtigt og lugtede af fugt og ikke var den type værelse vi havde bestilt. Men da vi fik et andet værelse var det hele som det skulle være og opholdet var rigtig dejligt.
Vi blev opgraderet til en 2 værelses suite fordi vi brokkede os over værelset. Dejlig strand og okay surf. Der er gratis internet på værelset. Hotellet trænger til en gennemgribende renovering. Værelserne lugter frygteligt a fugt, og er ikke særligt rene.
beliggenhed, elinstallationen bør udskiftes totalt. flere nedbrud på hele belysningen på værelset og vi havde indtryk af at tekniker godt vidste hvad der var galt. han gik målrette efter hovedafbryder og indstilling for aircondition
gode restauranter med god mad og betjening, dejligt sted.. upgrading af de ældste værelser er snart nødvendigt
We loved it! I went with an old friend and we had a perfect weekend. The service was fantastic, the resort was beautiful (and so was the beach), and there were just enough activities to keep us busy when we weren't reading by the pool. Looking forward to going back.
amazing. all amazing hmm, not a fan of the jungle walk. too long, plus too many mosquitos and pythons!
Every thing The A/C
Wonderful location, excellent service from happy, friendly staff. Lovely pool that is good for swimming - not just a "leisure" pool. freshly cooked breakfast on the veranda delivered by boat! The arm chairs in the room are really uncomfortable.
Beautiful nature and view. The cottages are clean and nice. Loved that many fishes and birds can be seen, quiet and only sounds of cicada is around. Great for relaxing. Food was over-priced, not many choices for long stay. As the access to mainland is difficult, would be nicer if there are more choices and local dishes available.
The staff were excellent! MERC was a nice experience. We had a superb seafood meal - snorkelling was great - as was the kayaking. Being able to swim and snorkel from our room was a real experience - the kids would swim over to say hi! The drinks in the evening at the Latitude Bar was a really lovely touch. We had some really quality family time there - intimate, personal atmosphere. We would definitely return - and split our time between Bungaraya and Gayana. Our initial impression was a little disappointing - location superb, however we had not been given adjoining rooms as requested (travellling with a 12 and 16 yr old) and the 'breakfast delivered to your room by boat' was not available. Having said that, the management were very quick to respond- change rooms for us asap and provided the breakfast we wanted. The intimate, personal atmosphere was superb - we wanted to stay longer! Only other comment would be that the first morning, breakfast was really lovely - small buffet and a la carte. The next 2 mornings were not as nice - obviously problems with the chefs or something - menu not offered although we were able to order.
The hotel is situated in a beautiful island in front of Kota Kinabalu. Pros are:location, hotel staff, snorkeling in front of the hotel is very nice, possibility to go also to the other hotel, by a free boat ride, that offers a magnificient beach in the morning-afternoon for free, Marine center where you can go and touch some sea-stuff. Restaurants.:I read some comments about the restaurants being a bit expensive, Think to choose your own fish from reproduction thanks by having the menu in your hand and that is not expensive . Personnel was very efficient: because of a sudden noise to air conditioning in the room we were offered immediately to change room. You wonder if sometime in an Eco marine resor, waters could be a little be cleaner, but when we and currents arrives this happens. Room prices are a little bit on the high side,
