Kota Kinabalu Hotels - Nexus Karambunai Resort

Nexus Karambunai Resort is located at the Karambunai Peninsula, about 30 km from KK Town. There is only one resort at the whole peninsula, so it is very private and exclusive. The resort has over 3,000 acres of compound. The beach stetch for miles and is quite spectacular - facing the South China Sea. Next door to the resort is an 18 hole golf course.

As we had never been to Karambunai, we decided to go for a visit. When we arrived there, it started to pour. Luckily we had already made it into the lobby before the torrential downpour. 

The design of the resort is not ground breaking - but once you enter the lobby you will be awed by the impressive pitched roof. This lobby roof design is one of the most dramatic I have seen among tropical resorts, including those in Bali. 

Once you arrive at this resort, you don't really want to go out again. This is a place designed for relaxing, just come here to chill out and forget about the outside world for a while. 

There are many dining options at the resort and I don't think the guests would ever get bored with the food. Most of the outlets are quite pricey though. As we arrived late in the afternoon, we were a bit hungry and decided to order a snack. The fish and chip was really nice - made with fresh local fish and served with an amazing freshly made tartare sauce.

For our next visit to KK, we have decided that we must stay here for a few days. Even if you don't intend to stay here, it is worth a visit.
