A highly recommended resort with a beach (for long walks), good service and value for money! It is a bit far off and secluded from city and other amenities / malls, but hotel provides coach service to nearby malls..

We picked Nexus quite randomly whilst visiting Sabah. It was a great stroke of luck. The place is wonderful. We had a chalet overlooking the sea. The staff are wonderful and there is a great choice of restaurants so you eat great food each day in a different setting. The evening buffet at the Seaview restaurant was awesome. Also a big "thank you" to Shaffi at reception who was friendly and a great help thtoughout our stay. We didn't want to leave.

Room Tip: Chalet with sea views

We stayed as a couple for 6 nights at this resort and found it to be very pleasant and relaxing. Upon arrival on our first day we were greeted by Shaffie at the entrance and he was as pleasant as could be. We ran into him on many other occasions and he was always willing to help us plan a day or just chat about local life around Sabah,

We had an Ocean View room on the 4th floor and the view was fantastic, the sunsets were amazing. The rooms were clean and maintained well enough. They could probably use some updating in the next few years though so the resort doesn't fall behind the trends.

The prices for the restaurants were...ok. I expected it to be slightly cheaper, especially the alcohol...which was a slight disappointment, but not a huge deal.

The location of the resort is great if you just want to hang around the beach all day....but it's 45 minutes from Kota Kinabalu which is a slight annoyance but we still managed to uber into town 5/6 days. Uber is definitely recommended, it's 1/3 the cost of taxi

The staff at the resort were all amazing, friendly and helpful...especially Shaffie. I'd recommend friends to stay here in the future.

Room Tip: request a room on the 4th or 5th floor for the best view
