There is a shopping centre attached, supermarket included. However for any other purpose the hotel is not well located. Probably perfect for business travellers as the rooms are rather nice and the restaurant is very good - sit outdoors though. Other people I know (divers needing to buy camera batteries etc for Mabul) stayed at the Heritage which they said... More

I stayed over for total 02 nights; once before heading to Sipadan kapalai and the other before heading back Singapore. A new hotel, staff were basically still very much inexperienced and need more contact with guests to fully understand and deal with guests' needs. I had a problem with my transport pick up on my arrival night and front line... More

For sure this is the nicest hotel in Tawau. But thats not saying much. I didn't like the location it is not in the city center at all. One needs to take a taxi or the hotel shuttle (which they charge you for) to the city. The room is quite expensive when compared to other accommodations. I found the room... More

We arrived at Promenade after a long and bumpy car ride, tired and feeling off colour. As soon as I walked into the lobby, I knew this was going to be the best hotel we've stayed in the past few days since we arrived in Sabah. Ckeck in was efficient. The room was a delight. The orange and beige colour... More

Nice and spacious hotel in the heart of Tawau. We overnighted here before proceeding to Kapalai the next morning. We were pleasantly surprised that a small place like Tawau had such a nice hotel. The room was very comfortable with a nice view. Food was pretty nice too. Decent range of cuisines on offer. The hotel also has a small... More

Stayed only for 1 night on my way out of Sipadan after 3 days of diving and wanted to give this hotel a go. Got a decent rate at RM115 for one night which I thought was good value. Rooms are spacious and clean but carpet is a light brown which isn't a very smart choice as it stains and... More

We had an awesome night at this hotel. After roughing it (relatively) in Sabah, and on the outer islands, this was pure luxury. For a very reasonably price (about $50) we got a superior room and it was all new and lovely. I have to especially reccomend their restaurant - a must in Tawau. The buffet dinner (not included in...

Stayed here for one night. Great room, great shower, great food, great staff. No problems. Gave us a really cheap and fast transfer to the airport also. There is no other comparable hotel in Tawau currently - easily the best value hotel here.

It's a very new hotel whereby it's only opened for about 3 mths. The lobby decor is modern and bright, staff are friendly and helpful. It's about 25 mins drive on a straight road from the airport, and you can see it from far away as it's the tallest building in its area. I wanted to book the executive superior... More
