One of the Best”

I have stayed at many hotels around Malaysia for my business trips. This was on the top of the list of best stays/experiences ever. Staff was very hospitable and there for every need of mine. The room was immaculately clean and plus it comes with an Arissto coffee machine and Netflix! I love the fact that the toiletries are quite exclusive and has unique smell too, I specifically like the lemongrass almond bar soap and wild ginger mint shampoo. There are plenty of choices for food nearby the hotel, like Burger King etc and 7-Eleven are just around the corner, you can also take a walk to Tanjung Aru old town just within 5 minutes of walking distance with many other local eateries there. Not to forget, the rooftop view was absolutely stunning, I got to enjoy both sunset and the infinity pool a day before I leave. Best part is: 5 mins drive to airport!!!

Everything is great except the engineer service guy with grey shirt !”

Everything is great , this is my second time staying here . But second stay i was a bit pissed off by the service team at the parking area , me and my sisters were in a hurry with all our stuffs and balloons before checking in . One balloon which is for a surprise birthday party , flew away a near the motorcycle area then with the rude looks the guy gave us pop the balloon . Without any concern or saying sorry ! Seriously ? Then right after that , while waiting for the "car lift" the guy still gave me the rude looks !!!! Seriously??? Engineer service grey shirt guy ! You are making me and my sister uncomfortable .

The best hotel”

From the first check in (we were late checked in because we descended fr mt kinabalu and arrived at timpohon gate at night), messages were replied instantly and breakfast choice were given for our next day. Everything is perfect from the service of the staff until to the housekeeping. I send my clothes for laundry and they managed to complete it the next day which was above and beyond their usual. And they have swimming pool facing the airport landing strip. What can I say i am 100% fully satisfied with thie hotel & plan to visit again in future.

Our best hotel stay in KK!”

We love our 4 days stay at Aru and another 2 days in other hotels. My husband and children love the rooms; spacious, clean and well maintain. We love the media provided too especially Netflix! Can watch our favourite shows even away from home. The only thing challenging is that the car park, is a elevator carpark. Just becarefull when parking. No breakfast is fine for us as we went to full day tour or outing.
