Kota Kinabalu (KK) is located at the upper north of Borneo island. We spent 4 days in KK, and we were staying in a 5 Star hotel called Nexus Resort. The hotel location is a bit far from the KK city centre (38KM) since it is meant to be a resort hotel, far from city hectic. Adjacent to the hotel is the hotel's golf course which is very nicely maintained. We happened to get a villa suites which is a 2 bedroom villa which comes with a kitchen and a living room. The hotel I believe was once a very luxurious hotel; however, now it is lack of maintenance. Few small little problems are left untouched, such as loosen cap on ceiling fan, loosen inner window frame, battery missing in the remote control unit, broken sliding door locks, outdoor wood stains, dusty television back, wall mildew, etc. Well, it is not as bad as it sounds though. Our room was a water front room which is very nice. Overall, the hotel room was still acceptable; however, there are much room to improve on the detail maintenance. Breakfast were quite nice and standard.
We did some beach cleaning since it was too nice to be spoiled with plastic bottles, plastic stuff.
The hotel was so quite, and you would feel like this was your own private beach. Should you need to go to the city, you will need to use the hotel taxi since there is no public taxi running around the area, unless you booked your own taxi for the whole day (RM 500) or half day (RM 250) including a local driver. Most taxi driver will know exactly where to go in KK.
