The Sunset Bar has a really nice set up, you drink cocktails and eat nibbles as you watch the sunset go down and then listen to a live bank play in the evening. Very nice and relaxing

If it is good weather get there early as it soon gets busy, there are comfortable seats with a good view of the sunset, however you need to spend at least 60 RM to sit here, the free seats overlook the hotel beach. There is BBQ that is handy for snacks.

Went there for the sunset view across the sea. Was not disappointed! The design of the bar is very nice but can get very packed as it nears sunset. There was a jazz band on sunday that was very very good.

We stayed at Shangri La Tanjung Aru and we managed to reserve a spot on the lower seats. There is a minimum spent of 70RM pp for reserving the seat during sunset hour but for the location it is worth it. There is large selection of cocktails and small selection of items to eat. Service was a bit slow but... More

This is a popular spot to watch the sunset in Kota Kinabalu. It's extremely romantic and if you get lucky and go on a clear day, you will be heavily rewarded. Try their "Beergaritas" (!)
