Stayed here for 3 nights during our stop in Sandakan - in my view this is the best hotel to stay in Sandakan. It's modern, new and in an ideal location. The rooms are finished to a good standard, they're clean, big and offer great views of the city and ocean. The pool area is also really nice with a lovely infinity pool overlooking the ocean and plenty of sunbeds. Whilst staying at the hotel we visited a couple of the restaurants down at the waterfront where you can get a good value meal, there's also a massage place at the waterfront offering massages, pedicures etc really cheap.
If your looking to visit the "tourist" attractions during your stay here, then the hotel can help arrange these for you. The concierge (who was extremely helpful) helped us arrange a trip to Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary and Labuk Bay to see the Probiscus monkeys - we decided quite last minute to go and he helped arrange this for us straight away for a good price. The hotel is also only a 10 minute walk away from the pier where you get the boat to Turtle Island. So location-wise this hotel is spot on. There's also a new mall next to the hotel.
The staff were super helpful and went out of their way to help us. If i come back to Sandakan i would definitely come back to stay here.More
