Named after Ascidieria Grandis (Eria Grandis), an endemic orchid found on Mount Kinabalu. The latest hotel to grace Kota Kinabalu's sublime landscape sits in the heart of the city, a mere 15 minutes' drive from Kota Kinabalu International Airport, and right next to the hippest mall in town. Our ideal location makes us the perfect retreat for those wishing to explore the area's eclectic shopping, dining, and tourist attractions.

Pros: Right in the heart of the city. Well, ok, not exactly smacked right in the centre but just a stone's throw away. 4 minutes walk (300 metres) to the Jesselton Point where you can get a boat to the islands. Next to the mall. Super convenient. Supermarket, drugstores, food

Dear Lau0707, Thank you for sharing your review. I am sorry and disappointed as you are. We have taken note of your experience and conducted fresh training. We take pride in our products and our services. We will ensure that we will improve. We have earned and want to live up to all the positive feedback and reviews we received. Our success is not an overnight miracle. We seriously want to be the best that we can be. I am sad that you had let the experience of an enjoyable stay marred by an Omelet or a sausage. Our room is clean and comfortable. The scenery is stunning and the sunset mesmerized. Of course we are concern with the debris floating in the sea. We have reported to the local authority. While this problem is out of our control, we have teamed up with the local Environmental Action Group to take the sample and determine the type and source of the debris for further action. Thank you for the feedback and wish you all the best. Thanks & regards, Michael

This hotel exceeds our expectations. The location is a big plus. Close to shopping malls and the Gaya Street market. Lots of good places to eat nearby. Easy access to the islands and more. Another big plus - the hotel staff. They are very professional, helpful, and friendly.

Dear Zakri K, Thank you for your question. There are a few options. 1. Limited parking is available at the hotel entrance for loading and is not for overnight parking. 2. You can purchase a pass from the hotel reception for the parking in the mall parking lot. It is RM10 per day which allow multiple daily entry and is definitely cheaper than the daily overnight charge by the mall. 3. Parking at the street level in front of the mall is possible but may not be easily available. Looking forward to welcome you to Grandis. Thanks Michael
