Sandakan's newest splurge
Harbour Square, Sandakan T: (089) 244 888
The poshest spot in town is this brand new waterfront hotel that's part of the Harbour Square shopping complex.
The 300 rooms and suites tick all the right boxes with silky sheets, spacious work desks, chic bathrooms stocked with scented soaps and lotions and spectacular sea views. Remember to take advantage of the four-star facilities like the outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre and free WiFi. The lobby cafe makes proper coffee (none of the instant stuff) and beer is buy-one-get-one-free during happy hour at the hotel bar. It's expensive by Sandakan standards, but a bargain for a Sheraton. Book online for the best rates and packages.
