Promenade Hotel Kota Kinabalu 4 stars

Hotel in Kota Kinabalu

Located a 5-minute walk to Oceanus Waterfront Mall, Promenade Hotel Kota Kinabalu offers accommodation overlooking the South China Sea. Very friendly and helpful staff. They helped us to rent a car to visit Kinabalu National Park from the hotel lobby. Breakfast was good and the location great too. Bed and bathroom were very comfortable. Room service food (usually we don't order this but my girlfriend didn't feel well) had great taste! Would recommend to anyone!

Tropical Paradise in East Malaysia

Kota Kinabalu (KK) is the capital of the East Malaysian state of Sabah on the island of Borneo. It features white-sand beaches, tropical rainforests and the outer lying coral reefs and islands of the Tunku Abdul Rahman (TAR) Marine Park, a haven for scuba divers.

Occupied by the Japanese and heavily bombed during World War II by the British, some remnants of this colonial era remain in the Atkinson Clock Tower and Signal Hill Observatory, with its sweeping view of the coast.

Tanjung Arn is KK’s most popular public beach and secluded northern beaches like Karambunai and Dalit have resorts dotted along the coast.

Kota Kinabalu Harbour hosts international cruise ships and the KK Waterfront is a popular place with many bars. The KK Handicraft Market is your chance to grab a nice souvenir to take home.

Mount Kinabalu is Malaysia’s highest mountain at 4,101 metres. This highly important ecological region contains rare fauna and flora and makes a good day trip from the capital.

A variety of hotels on Booking.com are centred around Kota Kinabalu International Airport, the city centre and islands.
