The view is really good and romantic. Overall environment is good. It takes abt 25 to 30 mins to Central Point. One thing disappointed me was my room suddenly out of electronic during taking a bath . All the things were turned off.. the recovery procedure was not that satisfied.

Relaxing Resort
We didn't realise when we booked here that there are 2 parts to the resort - one is the main hotel and the other, where we stayed, is referred to as the Spa Suites, basically condos that are individually owned and re-rented out. You need to take a shuttle bus to get to the main hotel and these run every 30 minutes. The condo section has its own pool overlooking the beach, and a restaurant where the buffet breakfast is. This is a vast resort that is really in the middle of nowhere (Kota Kinabalu is a 45-minute taxi ride away), so you are captive to the rather inflated prices that are usually attached to resorts. Staff appear to be well trained and helpful but after a month of traveling around the country, staying at resorts and hotels that were much more personal, we found this place to be rather impersonal and antiseptic. Breakfast is a crowded affair, with lots of vacationing families who think nothing of jumping a queue or pushing to get to the buffet table. Wifi is not available at all in the condos which leads to a crowd around the reception area at peak times (after breakfast, after dinner) and poor reception then. This was one of the higher-priced resorts that we stayed at and yet we came away with a distinctly dissatisfied feeling. If corporate resort living is what you like, then this is the place for you. If you prefer a bit more interaction with the country you are visiting and a more personal experience, stay away from here.

The hotel has not been maintained as well as it should be for a 5 star resort at these room prices. My first stay at this resort was 2004 and it was really nice and like a 5 star hotel. The most disappointing experience is the condition of the gardens around the garden apartments with open drains, broken fences dead grass and dangerous bridges which were just closed instead of repairing them. The pools, beach and breakfast and staff are great Great place to relax, the city of KK has very little to offer so better just stay at the resort and relax
