Marriott at Kota Kinabalu Sabah East Malaysia has just took my breath away!
Situated in the heart of the city and next to the sea, Marriott hotel is the new kid on the block in Kota Kinabalu. As part of Oceanus Mall(aside from some 24hrs convenient stores and a passé HardRock Cafe, the mall is completely dead), the property is located at the end of the building taking advantage of the open sea view with no obstruction.
On the 15th floor(the roof top) where a small but comfortable size restaurant called BigFish, offers buffet dinner at USD37/pax, fresh Sardine sashimi hors d'oeuvres, some sauteed meat dishes and a simple dessert corner. Whats impressive is the eat-all-you-can main course menu where fresh tiger prawns, lamp chop, salmon and cod fish are being grilled and served with buttered mashed potatoes. Plus, the Sabahan crew's attention to service and details are impeccable! Worth mentioning is Mr Andy, a native crew who speaks English perfectly and attend to all your requests promptly.
Also the view is to die for and the serenity surrounding is whats every travellers' ideal holiday environment after a day trip to Mount Kinabalu Mountain or island hopping.
