"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.

"I am very satisfied with their service and facilities.. With the room rate agoda gave us, I was expecting nexus resort is just another ordinary beach front resort. Hey, Nexus did disppoint us. It is far more than just a beach front resort. They have a lot to offer. They have 5 restaurants in their resort, a spa equipped and designed to make you feel more relaxed and sort of a VIP. A shuttle service to move you around the resort. Their beach, made me decide to visit again kota kinabalu. Despite of having beautiful beaches here in the Philippines, it calls me to go back. Indeed rumors are true that kota kinabalu have very nice beach, not polluted, fine white sand, all these infront of nexus resort. Staff were very kind and helpful. "

"The hotel/resort is a very very beautiful place... very quiet and tranquil.. The only drawback was that the resort is quit far from the main city.. Food is good especially the one where we dine at "TEPI LAUT".. The room is spacious and I really appreciate the mini pool by the balcony.. Staffs are helpful and very attentive.. If it weren't for the distance between the main city and the hotel, this resort would be really really nice... But, I like the gestures made by the hotel to abate the distances issue, they provide shuttle bus going to and forth from the hotel to the main city..."

"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."

"In more than a decade of business and pleasure travel across the world, this hotel was one of the best we have ever stayed in. Even some days after our departure, we are not able to point to a single area in which our experience at Bunga Raya could have been made more enjoyable. The staff were excellent and no service was too much trouble for them to make our stay so memorable. This was part of our honeymoon, so that is particularly pleasing. Our room was in the hills with a wonderful view over the bay (which, unlike the sister resort Gayana Eco Resort, is completed isolated and has no view of the highrise buildings of Kota Kinabalu). Other guests had villas right on the beach. All the room types seemed similar quality and were specifically designed so that one villa did not unduly interfere with or overlook the neighbouring villas. When we were too lazy to walk to the restaurants, we were given transport in a golf buggy very promptly. Many tables at the restaurants were well positioned to overlook the sea. Where those tables were full, the rainforest area was well developed into beautiful koi carp pond, fed by waterfall and where Monitor lizards basked in the sun. The same sites greeted our breakfast, which was substantial and offered good variety. The beach grill offered a more economical food option to the main restaurant, plus the 'on-beach' setting. Frankly, we were very satisfied with all the food options on the island. The Bunga Raya offers free transport to the sister Gayana Eco resort, where you can directly add costs and expenses to your room bill at Bunga Raya - so you do not have to take cards and money with you. And therefore you have complete escape from the realms of the credit card and the usual forced extraction of cash from tourists. This was a particularly nice touch. The mini bar is free and restocked every day. Cocktails are free or heavily discounted between 6-7pm every day. We wholeheartedly recommend this place."

"Before anything else, I would like to say their nasi lemak is one of the best I've ever tasted in Sabah. Their complimentary breakfast includes that nasi lemak or American breakfast. Take that nasi lemak, you won't regret it :) Place is cool, high up the mountain. The windy road is a bit of hassle to drive but hey, that's part of the experience right. The room is comfortable. Parking your car is requires you to be extra careful since you are parking beside the very steep hill. The resort has a fantastic view of the mountain range and the Kota Kinabalu city itself. It can get very cold at night. One downside is there are lots of bugs at night. Seriously, I've never seen that many bugs. My wife was bitten everywhere just by walking to our room. Other than that, I don't have any qualms. Overall, it's a worthwhile to stay there."
