"the horizon hotel in kota kinabalu is situated in the heart of the city close the istanza, the sabah governor’s residence. it’s a new hotel, being only 4 months old. but don’t let that dissuade you from staying here. the general manager, philip d. theseira, who i would now count as a good friend, has a top rate staff. all are very welcoming, polite and most helpful; addressing you by name as to go about your business. they even moved me to a new room, because i couldn’t establish an internet connection in my original room. rooms are spacious having king sized beds, a small area for sitting and relaxing, and large walk in showers. larger rooms are also available for those with children. but the room size i had was perfect for the duration of my stay. the hotel has three levels of secure private parking, which is free to hotel guests. in addition there is a swimming pool and well equipped gymnasium on the sixth floor, allowing for mostly uninterrupted views out across the bay. these are used at the guest’s own risk, as there are no staff or life guards present. the two excellent restaurants, give the guest a choice of food styles from around the region, as well as international cuisine. however please be aware that all food is halal, so there is no pork available on the menus. with its situation in the centre of the city; it’s only a short walk to all the shopping malls, restaurants and bars. i never had to use a taxi once, preferring to walk around and see all that was on offer. it’s also ideally located to all the scuba dive centres that offer very reasonably priced diving off the islands of gaya and sapi. i’ve already planned my next stay, if for nothing else, but the convenience. but that’s not the only reason of course.

"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.

"very new hotel and the price is quite cheap compared to other hotels at Kota kinabalu. The location is good where it is very near to the goverment's building as my main reason I be at KK is for work. I was confused during check-in as there are two hotel at the same building and the receptions are just beside each other. The name of the hotel is Borneo vista and Marina Travellers Suite is just the manager of the booking, which can be misleading. Other than that, I really like this hotel as the price very cheap. If you looking at other hotel with same standard of this hotel at Kota Kinabalu, the price can easily doubled."
