"the location of magellan sutera is very good,only 3mins drive to the city centre and easy to look for local food. the room is classic,clean and the swimming pool is also an attraction of the hotel. the most amazing part is the breakfast,there're so many choices of food and drinks (including italy coffee) for us. well,the service,environment,cleaniness,facilities,food and drinks are all above my expectation. it could be considered as the best 5-star hotel in kota kinabalu."

"The Pacific Sutera (silk) is probably the best Resort hotel in Kota Kinabalu. What they dont tell you in the website is that you can also enjoy the pool areas of the MAGELLAN And their members only "marina" (great for the kids!). THe Marina is the only pool area that has the slides, so if you plan to stay here at the PAcific, walk around the boardwalk - its good excercise and make the huge complex a bit closer to each other.

"It is located in Gaya street, so that should not be a problem to travel around the city center on foot. Do take note that you will need the local parking coupon if you wish to park your car in front of the hotel. Despite the small space of toilet and shower room, the room is actually quite spacious and comfy. Overall, this is a satisfied stay in a new international standard hotel in Kota Kinabalu."

"Spent a week in the spa suite apartments for the family and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The location was ideal for those seeking to get away from the busy city, while still remain close to amenities. We rented a car at affordable rates from a local car rental company, and used a mobile app called WAZE to get around - driving around was easy since the app had the most accurate and up-to-date information. Having spent 7 days in the resort, we got around easily to the local restaurants for the best seafood - very cheap and fresh. Check out Gayang Restaurant and their cheap and fresh lobsters and crabs. Convenience shops like 7-11 were everywhere and there is a large supermarket called GIANT just 10 mins from the resort (google "Taman Indah Permai"). Our younger son (age 5) caught a cold and there's a very good and experienced paediatrician called Dr Jeffrey Soon about 30 mins drive away (Lot 66, Lrg Zirafah 10A , Taman Layang Layang , Luyang, 88300 Kota KInabalu), where we got him treated. Around the resort, there's a gorgeous golf course sandwiched between the mountain ridge and the beaches. And there's also a water theme park called "Lagoon Park", where we spent a day with water activities. Generally, while the resort may be about 45 mins drive from the city, there are enough facilities and things for my family to enjoy. The hotel staff were extremely prompt in their responsiveness to our requests (extra towels, utensils for cooking, etc). Very warm and friendly. The stringent security checkpoints also made us feel safe and secure throughout our stay. We had a good deal for this booking via Agoda. Paid for the price of a 4 star hotel but it really felt more like a 5 star. Highly recommended for couples looking for a private place as well as for families looking to get some peace and quiet. "

"My room was garden wing, and I visited with my family. I thought 1 hour long from city is far away. But at the moment I first saw my room's view my family happily moaned because of the nature view. Our journey to Rasa Ria was too long and tired. Because of corona virus, even we were not sick we had to afraid and kept nervous from our home to Kota. But Rasa Ria showed us warm heart service. Especially Korean Guest Coordinator 서은주(Elva) understood our situation and we were not good at English so She helped us a lot. In our short vacation, we really appreciated about her service and friendship. Rasa Ria's clean and safe environment was also great then I expected. We had to check our fever when we come back to resort and eat breakfast. It made us feel relieved. We could relax during staying in Rasa Ria. I hope nature, Fire Flies keep alive and safe. The waves were so powerful while we were staying, we could not use other sea activities. Thank you for your sevice, I and my family mad"

"Had a wonderful stay! The staff were incredibly polite and friendly. The restaurant food was very good (particularly the BBQ) and very big portions! Great value for money. The room was lovely and clean and the private beach area was clean and always had sun beds free. There was lots of coral and fish to see when snorkelling. The jungle and sunset walks were also very pleasant with lots of monitor lizards and birds to see. I would recommend this hotel and would return if I am ever back in Kota Kinabalu."

"It was nice given the price was very reasonable. Good to stay in if you prefer to explore the Tanjung Aru coastal area rather than Kota Kinabalu city centre. Very close to the airport. One thing they should improve on though is the opening hours of the swimming pool, now being from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. is too short. It'd be nice to be opened till later (say, 9 or 10 p.m.) so that people can enjoy a nice relaxing evening swim."

"Our first time here. The resort is clean and spacious and I never expect to see such a nice and clean beach around Kota Kinabalu town area. We never prepared food and there is no restaurant nearby so we drove out to buy dinner and egg and bread for next day breakfast as there is kitchen fully equipped with kitchenware. There are security patroling at night. It is a safe and cosy place to stay. We will plan a trip there again."

"Its like a five star hostel. Only a few rooms. Each room with a unique concept. We stayed at the cafe room. It was really nice and clean. Have one sink inside our room. Shared bathroom but the bathrooms and toilets maintained well. Love their shower. Really very clean. The place is only 10mins from airport. Down got many restaurants and cafe and mart. Value for money as we only paid rm 100. Will come here again. 😀"
