Location Staff very nice Facilities Local Wildlife
Far from everything, really impossible without a car.
Nice area, good comfort
Poor wifi. Tennis court not in order. Restaurants quite expensive.
The swimming pool, the friendly staff
No wifi in the room :(
Poor guidance of facilities and front desk work. The shower is not stably working. Food are oj but not so much variety.
The pool for kids.
I love the ambience of Karambunai so serene and breezy. The staff are very nice and helpful. The room is comfortable. The food during breakfast is good however can be improve further.
The aircondition in the room is slow despite of the fan is on high and temperature was set low. The bicycle should be properly maintained and should provide bicycles for people who are tall. Should provide variety of food in view that the resort is located quite far from KK city.
the wonderful grounds and beach
There could be more vegetarian food options. Appreciated the staff letting me pay a special price as I didn't eat meat dishes Thanks to them!
The location was a consideration for us many years ago for our first stay. The main lobby was beautifully constructed and still shows it's former glory.
The whole resort had been left to age and showed poor maintenance, with many things broken (in-room safes, leaking bath, tv controls etc.), leakage stains in ceilings throughout, musty smell in rooms ... generally needing a total revamp.
The beach was gorgeous. Clean and well-maintained. The beach is also exclusive to hotel guests only, so it's not too crowded. The hotel surrounding is also conducive--quiet, calm and safe.It's good for those who really wants to escape the busy life. The staff were helpful and courteous.
I feel that I am being watched by too many people-the security guards, the people on the rescue tower, the people manning the sports facilities. I think the hotel should have more choice on its room service menu. Simple but delicious items can make a lot of difference to some people. On top of that, quite a lot items sold at the hotel's 'sundry shop' is over-priced. I know, the location is far away from the city, maybe that's the reason. I also hope newspapers can be provided upon request. The Wifi needs a lot of improvement. Guests have only their smartphones to communicate with friends and colleagues and they need a good Wifi system. The welcome drink is a disappointment. For a 5 star hotel, Nexus should be wary of its prestige. What we got was a very basic and low cost drink. That's a let down. Lastly, I hope the waiting time for food delivery, both at the restaurant and for room service can be reduced. I suspect the hotel didn't have enough staff. One last note: maybe the hotel can place mosquito traps near the hotel blocks.
I love beach the beach frontage.
Services are just fair with limited food outlet.
Service is good,Hotel staff is excellent and friendly especially the duty manager Mr Kevin and front staff. Coffee house. excellent and staff is helpfull so as Chef.menu is good.Had a good stay and Looking foward to visit again this year.
The distance from the city is far and transfer rate should readjust for guest plying to and fro to the city and also transfer to airport
The air condition shut down after mid night. Check with the maintenance, they said they shut it down to reduce electricity usage. For a 5 Start hotel, I cannot understand why they do that and most important point is they never inform the hotel quest.
Everything was great.
Strangely there is no wifi in the room at all. Quite strong waves, if you are with small kids, they cant swim in the sea.
Warm welcomed by the staff when we arrived. They were friendly and helpful. We were treated with cold towel before check in process starts. Check in was done smoothly except that our room was not ready so we were advise to go for lunch first. The resort is huge! Good for family with kids. Large compound to hang out and run around. Big swimming pool and ocean was on our doorstep. Within the resort, there are golf club, spa, games room, convenience store, gift shop, dessert cafe, bicycle rent etc. There are also a few restaurants that you can choose from. The food is good. Plus so many activities and tours to do (extra charges). There are no reason for you to go out of the resort as everything is provided within the resort. In case you're bored, there is a shuttle service to town and a few shopping malls for your to explore (RM24 return trip per person). We booked the hotel with an intention to rest & relax after a long trip visiting the Borneo rainforest so it was really good stay for us. The hotel room is spacious and the view is ocean view is breathtaking. we love listening to the ocean sound while sleeping. We also love the hotel bed, it's comfortable. Privacy is good as the resort compound is large. Even though it was during peak season/Christmas week, we don't feel it was too crowded except during breakfast hour only. My personal highlight would be the Borneo Spa! Had the best massage there and the facilities are excellent. Interior of the spa is very nice and relaxing. Not forgetting the resort resident in the ponds, the monitor lizards. Beautiful species :) Additional note: The resort is 50 minutes by taxi (RM75 per taxi) from Kota Kinabalu International airport.
I do find the check in and out process are quite slow. Since it was my first time here, I'm not sure whether it was normal or it was due to the peak season/ Christmas week. One more thing, this is sort of our mistake but we just want to inform as a reminder to everyone. We ordered 2 items from the swimming pool bar and my husband signed the bill without checking it first (he was confident that the listed items/price was correct). While checking out, we realized that we've been charged on additional items that we did not ordered from the swimming pool bar. Oh well, it was a silly mistake that we have to pay. Lesson learned for us and a reminder for everyone to check their bill before signing.
We like the privacy. Staff were very helpful and friendly, was not expecting Nexus resort would surprise me but they did by sending me a birthday cake. It was a sweet surprise.
Pathway along Borneo wings are not so bright. No wifi in room sadly. Seems like less time for the cleaners to clean the stairs and walkways.
Location and landscape. Clean beach.
Facilities lacking maintenance. Staff were a bit slow and less attentive.
-beach -gym -personel -breakfest -rooms -everything was clean -hotel enviroment
-playroom for the kids, gym and playeroom for adulta were closed too early -far away of everything. You always need a taxi or shuttle -hotel advertised for example xmas dinner which never happened. Other same kind of incidents also -price level is way too high compared to local level -basically everything is closed after 22.30
Staff very helpful esp receiptions
Food too expensive
The pictures of the blue beautiful water is false. The water has rough waves and is completely brown from the sand. Luckily, it was warm otherwise we would have not swam in the sea. There wasn't anything to do on the resort for guests that we didn't have to pay for. As guests who already paid for the room and all the food except breakfast, we thought maybe they would accommodate us in otherwise but they didn't. We even had to pay for a game of pool. It would have been nice to have some activities included.
Beautiful surroundings, lovely room and very friendly and welcoming staff.
More vegetarian options in the restaurants, especially at breakfast, would have been welcome.
the view and the location beautiful
the reception stvery staff very slow and not polite enough espeially lady staff,
Room is spacious and well kept. Facilities are good. Nobel (Chinese) restaurant serves delicious food.
Furnishings need to be refurbished. Buffet breakfast need to be improved on its selection. Some restaurants are under renovations. Leaving few selections of restaurants for meals. Room service staffs need to be more prompt in collecting the trays and utensils left outside the rooms. HAve seen trays lying outside the same rooms for many days.
Beach, surrounding...old hotel...but the hospitality is good.
