Kota Kinabalu Hotels - Nexus Karambunai Resort
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.
