Description: Perched on the edge of its very own peninsular, Sunset Bar is a world away from the madding crowd, yet close enough to the heart of Kota Kinabalu city. This trendy and upscale bar brings fresh meaning to the term “perfectly chilled” and sets the standard in style and five-star service along with what can only be described as a stunning view of the sweeping Kota Kinabalu colourful skyline. This chic hang-out has locals and guests flocking for a spot on Sunset Bar’s natural timber decking furnished with cosy couple loungers. Tune into the whispering sounds of the ocean whilst Sunset Bar’s sultry and mood-enhancing tunes keep the vibe fun. An authentic Borneo lepa (boat) seeks attention as the bar’s unique hanging centrepiece, flanked by traditional handcrafted Borneo totems. Alfresco tables and seats along the bar make for a relaxed space. Opens daily from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm (weather permitting). Snacks are available from 4:30pm to 10:30pm.

We had sunset drinks here every night that we were in KK. There is a 2 for 1 happy hour at certain times, the view is amazing and service great to. Friends we were with had the satay sticks and the hanging skewers which both looked delightful. Of coarse there are the picture takers but we were not over run by them or offended by them and to be honest there are really were not that many. I would definitely recommend at least 1 drink here, then you will know what I am talking about.

This was lovely sad to see parents and kids with their noses in ipads instead of taking in the view and talking to their kids. This aside great satays and perfect view

Absolutely perfect to sit and watch the sun go down. Albeit without the kids !. Also good just to sit and relax in and just people watch. Prices aren't cheap, but not ludicrously expensive considering the view !

Amazing sunset spot but I agree with Chunky353 and SwissW; very slow service with only one staff member and then the place was overrun... We enjoyed the setting.

This bar is in a beautiful location but if you are coming for sunset, get there early to get a seat near the front, otherwise you will sit and have your view blocked by numerous chinese snapping away like crazy with no spacial awareness of the fact they might be in your way. Bad Management of the bar at peak times leads to this situation. Outside sunset, the bar is excellent!
