“Peaceful, friendly staff, but terrible jam.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

The resort is good enough for us but if you planning on having several day-trips during your stay, you will be frustrated.

Because, every morning when you set off for your trip, you will be caught in jam. After your trip going back to resort you'll be stuck again. Not to mention you have to wake up early to meet the pickup, pay more because you staying out of town, and be the last one to drop off at the end of most day-trip. And I'm talking about at least additional 30mins in the traffic; which will make the entire journey from town to resort at least one hour. If your going to Kinabalu park, you be spending 4 hours plus in the vehicle.

Lastly, chilling in the resort is good but you'll quickly get sick of the food. There's only one alternative at the opposite of the hotel if you do not feel like take a long ride to town.

Lastly bring insect repellent. Enjoy!

Ideally located on the stretch of beach of Kota Kinabalu...a sleepy place to have good rest. Economically priced and have good rooms with nice private beach to enjoy and relax. Service is OK but not that efficient, staff is good and humble that's why one doesn't feel the average service. Food is not good, but you cannot help as u r around 1 hour away from main city.

Room Tip: Beach side rooms are quite good.

We just returned from a lovely stay here. I think that some of the reviews complaining about the smaller things have really chosen to focus on the negatives. This is not a resort that advertises itself as 5 star and if that's what you are looking for, you should go to the more expensive spots. For the price we paid, we felt that this was a great spot and a great price and we had a really lovely time!
Our room was really big, really clean and really modern. The staff were really friendly and did their best to help at all times, even when we had an issue with a day tour and payment problems. It is true that the grounds were occasionally a little shabby but this really does not affect your stay in any way! The pool area was great, and down by the beach, there were plenty of beach loungers and the little cabanas were amazing! They made our stay even better as we chilled there each day ordering our drinks from the amazing restaurant/bar staff and relaxing reading in the shade in between building sand castles and swimming.
It is true that the resort is a little isolated from town and your eating options are rather limited to the nearby seafood restaurants and the hotel restaurant but the food at the hotel place is really good and reasonably priced and there is a pretty decent selection. If you are looking for somewhere with an option of exploring the town (which is not a very exciting town if you ask me) then you might want somewhere closer but we didn't - we just wanted to relax and enjoy the peace, which we did. The hotel will happily organise you a taxi though and they have a big variety of day trips too if you are bored with staying there.
Oh, and the spa is really great too! Easy to book and with lots of different things. We all had different treatments and they were great.

Room Tip: We stayed in Mawar 5 and it was a great location and really newly renovated.

Beautiful setting with no one on the beaches, large clean pool and very relaxing. Deluxe room was large and clean albeit a little dark. Wonderful staff except the lobby staff who had no idea about what to do, how to get around, trips etc. Go to Sabah tourists office in KK who were so helpful. Resort quite far out but there is a pricey shuttle bus. The tourist office advised us on hiring a car which was great and cheap compared to the restrictive shuttle bus. Easy driving, slow traffic and excellent roads. No local buses from resort but great restaurant opposite which was so so cheap with excellent food. No alcohol though! Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Go for deluxe room.

We arrived to Beringgis after our climb up Mt Kinabalu expecting a haven to rest and relax. Our room was quite recently renovated and we were happy about that.

The disappointment hit us when we started to walk around the resort area and found out that there was only one restaurant serving the guests and not really any other services (super market, restaurant) nearby the hotel. Also it looked like there was a renovation going on in one of the hotel buildings + beach front bar. The garden did not look very lush and the pool area was also a bit run down (different types of sunbeds, some of them broken, mattresses not that tidy looking, sun shades broken, pool bar closed and abandoned). If you take a look at the hotel buildings you can also see a need for renovation on the roofs etc. Restaurant toilet was in a shocking state, luckily our room was nearby.

The beach infront of the hotel is secluded and extremely nice. Definately one of the reasons to go to Beringgis. Even with the disappointments we found our stay OK since the staff was very polite and helpful.

The hotel is 40 minutes from airport and 1 hour from the town of kota Kinabalu. Its located on a streach of golden sand. The hotel has the most friendly staff who are able to help no matter the time of day, we checked out at 4am and had no issues. the rooms are good size with all you need for a relaxing stay. I would recommend this place for families or couples to enjoy this loverly island.
