Kuching Travel - Sheraton Four Points

Besides The Pullman, the other international hotel to open in Kuching recently is Sheraton Four Points. Actually Four Points was opened about 5 months earlier then Pullman, even though it had started construction much later. Granted, it is not as tall a building as The Pullman, but the speed of construction was still impressive.

Being a Sheraton franchise, a high level of quality in finishing and service is to be expected. On the whole the lobby and F&B outlets do not disappoint. Designed by ZDR from Kuala Lumpur - the overall look is modern, chic and colourful. The all-day-dining cafe called The Eatery is huge - the biggest in Kuching at the moment. There is also a lobby lounge next to the reception, and a casual cafe serving coffee and light snacks. One great thing is the Starwood Privilege Card is accepted at this hotel, so you get the usual great discounts.

While the overall impression is quite positive, the quality of finish might have suffered due to the speedy construction. There are rough edges here and there, and parts of the basement carpark still looks like a construction site. Reviews of the rooms have also been mixed - generally it s not the design but the quality control. Hopefully the hotel can get these sorted out soon.

The hotel is cladded entirely in a glass curtain wall.

The lobby is very spacious.

With around 400 rooms, the Sheraton Four Points is located just 5 minutes from Kuching International Airport. It is very convenient for business people on a short trip. Though not far from Kuching town centre (about 10km), with the rush hour traffic we get nowadays it can still be a hassle getting around at the wrong time.
