The resort is at the end of the island. Thus they occupy quite a lot of space for the beach area. Long stretch of beach for you to stroll and enjoy! Great place for family! There are many water and land activies that you can participte in. There is even a kids corner where they will babysit the kids while... More

Very large compound with long private beach. 30 km away from the city. Nothing around but it has it's own four restaurants, Italian, Korean, Chinese, and international. There are also a sunset bar and a cafe plus mini mart. Price is around 36 Rn per meal and big portion, reasonable quality. Dinner buffet will cost 127 Rn per person. We... More

Kota Kinabalu (KK) is located at the upper north of Borneo island. We spent 4 days in KK, and we were staying in a 5 Star hotel called Nexus Resort. The hotel location is a bit far from the KK city centre (38KM) since it is meant to be a resort hotel, far from city hectic. Adjacent to the hotel... More

My family and I stayed here for three nights in March in an Oceanview room. I have no doubt that when the Nexus was first built, it was likely a stunning resort and spa. The years have not been kind to this huge resort and, unfortunately, it has been very poorly maintained over that time and looks very run down.... More

Told by concierge after check in that we can call them anytime for pickup service with buggy, but we were refused this service when we called, we only called because it was raining and we were going...

Definitely not worth the money anymore. We were here 5 years ago and we can see how much the hotel has run down since. Even the breakfast selection is a joke! We remembered that the hotel used to have one of the biggest selection of breakfast with good quality food. Now it feels like just a 3 star hotel or... More

Given the reviews on tripadvisor we were a bit hesitant about booking to stay here. Stopping in similar resorts in this area was more than twice the price of Nexus resort so we took a chance and stayed here 4 nights in March 2014. We weren't disappointed and had a great time. It's best to check the rooms you have... More

Visited KK many times in the past with family, always had the highest regard for the Nexus Resort as it was the newest and most luxurious Resort when it first opened. Since it is one of the further resorts from KK International airport (and most expensive) we never stayed there before but did dine their after playing golf there. First... More
