Kota Kinabalu | Hotel Grandis

 
Hotel Grandis, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, Borneo

It was quite a long travel from Brunei to Kota Kinabalu which involved a combination of 2 bus rides, ferry and fast craft. But it all was worth it upon arriving at Hotel Grandis for the remaining days of my trip which would highlight Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

Upon arriving, I was immediately welcomed by the immensely beautiful structure of their sought-after room -- Deluxe Sea View Room. It is a 35-45 sqm that spoils you with the beautiful seascape of South China Sea, Taman Laut Tunku Abdul Rahman, and overlooking the nearby islands in city of Kota Kinabalu, namely Palau Gaya, Manukan Island and Sulug Island.

The spacious bath room has a separate comfort and shower room, plus their bath tub that also has the seascape view. This is where I would spend most of my afternoons after day tours in Kota Kinabalu. And yes, it comes with the complete amenities one could ask for. It even has a living room area where you could enjoy music or watch movies while lounging at the couch or from the king-size bed (also comes in twin bed which depends on your preference). Additional plus is their good sound system installed, I maybe alone in the vast room but never felt lonely.

This lavish and grand room type of theirs totally won me over because I am after all, born and raised, from the city beside the sea in my country, to watch the day go by from the wonderful sunny view of the coast until sunset is a pleasure to both my eyes and heart.

Other room types are as follows: Superior Room (29-34 sqm), Deluxe City View Room (34-45 sqm) – just like the Deluxe Sea View but boasts the bustling view of the city, Deluxe Family Room (46 sqm), Deluxe Studio Room (60 sqm) – Junior suite with exclusive access to the Grandis Club Lounge, Executive Suite, and Premier Suite.

Let’s discuss its location, strategically at the heart of Kota Kinabalu, near the city boulevard, shops, malls and restaurants. Just like my room, it has the beautiful panoramic view of the city, sea, and islands nearby on their roof deck where one could find the function room, gym, roof deck bar and pool area. The delightful sunny beach scenery until the big beautiful sunsets are inviting enough to relax or even take a dip which is a pretty good dilemma because I was torn to do a day tour or just stay in bed all day.

Convenience at its finest because apart from it being in the heart of the city, the floor where one could find the conference rooms, Piano Lounge and Rosea Café has an entrance to the Suriah Sabah Mall. Additionally, I am usually not a morning person but their breakfast at Rosea is varied and enticing that I usually wake up early to make the most out of my time there to either eat before the day’s tour or simply study because the café is spacious and serene enough because, again, boasts the sea view.

From Hotel Grandis’ tagline -- “You are the centre” – you’d truly feel renewed and rejuvenated with their modern style, space, and architectural design that meets the perfect and luxurious hotel lifestyle. Hotel Grandis is actually named after from the endemic orchid found in Mount Kinabalu called Ascidieria Grandis (Eria Grandis).

To top them all, their service and accommodating staff made the stay seamless and worry-free. The six days that I spent in Kota Kinabalu was made more memorable because of their generosity and hospitality. Perfect relaxation for a vacation one could ask for, especially now that I am going back to school already, that is why I would recommend them and definitely would want to go back with family and friends.
