Photo of LA Hotel
The rooftop bar is ace, the best spot in town for a bevy or two (also worth a pitstop if your digs are elsewhere). Stylish and clean contemporary rooms in this multi-storey tower offer comfort and mod-cons — the seaview rooms are best. Laminate wood floors and dark neutral tones are chic and appealing and you’ll get a good night’s sleep on the comfy bed. Air-con, WiFi, flatscreen TV (with limited channels) and tea-making facilities are all standard, and up the scale adds a safe and minibar. Furnishings include desks, seating and open storage. Clean bathrooms sport hot-water rain-showers, and a full range of toiletries if you’ve forgotten your toothbrush. LA Hotel offers non-smoking floors, and all levels provide key card security. Prices go up as the elevator moves skyward.

On ground level, a sports-style pub has pool and darts and live music most nights and a cafe serves the include buffet breakfast. Friendly staff speak good English and can sort you with their airport shuttle (35 ringgit per person). LA Hotel opened in 2012 and still appeared brand new in 2016. For a smart and comfortable option in Tawau, LA Hotel is a good choice. If your style is more Vegas than LA, head to Shervinton Boutique Hotel.
