    Lonely Planet review

    Located in the Tanjung Aru area about 3km south of the city centre, this may be the finest hotel in Sabah; think beautifully stylish rooms with huge baths, comfy-as-cloud beds, seaview balconies looking out over manicured, flower-filled gardens, spa treatments, a chic breakfast bar, plus lashings of watersports available. Pure, unblemished bliss; this is the place to relax.
