Le Meridien

Luxury may well be what you need after a hard slog up Gunung Kinabalu.


Photo of Le Meridien This chain five-star can offer just that. When we visited in early March 2016 the rooms were looking tired, but a renovation is due to be completed on some floors by the end of April 2016, and will be ongoing during 2016 for other floors.

If it’s anything like the renovations of the lobby and function rooms we were shown — a modern design interpretation of Sabah’s natural surroundings — it should be excellent. The current room style is very classic, with a huge expanse of carpet and marble bathrooms, plus every five-star whatnot you desire. They are comfortable and well maintained, but still in need of an update. We love what they are doing so far with the upgrade, but you may want to check if the rooms have been completed before you book.

The excellent waterfront location offers rooms with sea and city views. If you can afford the upgrade, go for a sea view (or stay in a less expensive hotel with one). The club rooms and suites offer access to an exclusive club lounge that includes complimentary nightly cocktails and extensive views over the South China Sea. The newly refurbished lobby, which has two great restaurants and a bar, is looking great. Its hip and fresh design in cool blues and greys is top notch. One of the restaurants, Latest Recipe, is one of the few places in town serving local Sabahan cuisine, a must try.

You won’t be disappointed by the pool area either — it’s the best in central KK and an excellent spot for a sunset cocktail. Non-guests are welcome at the poolside bar and cafe, and can use the pool (for 68 ringgit). Service at Le Meridien is impeccable, and staff are spot on — friendly and not stuffy.
