Stayed in this hotel whenever I visit Kota Kinabalu for business or leisure. The hotel staffs are caring, polite and friendly. However, the luggage arrangement by the concierge pissed me off. My luggage was left in the middle of the lobby un-attained during the checked-in.

The staff are amazing and the hotel location is close to everything.My only disappointment was the steam room being out of order. Also you have to try the rainbow coffee made by their very friendly barista.

We returned to the Hyatt for 5 nights and again stayed in a ocean view suite. Our suite included club room privileges. All of the... More
