Megah D'Aru Hotel
Travel Blogs from Kota Kinabalu
We left KK on the 12th and headed to the main body of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. I sense that this will be the last time we will ever visit Borneo.
I remember when we first started traveling together, Borneo was extremely high on my bucket list. Ever since I was a child, I had been fascinated by stories of early man, of where we had come from …
We have travelled some around the world, but travelling from Denpasar International airport we have never had to pass so many counters/checkpoints. First they check your ticket and passport, then they scan all your bags at a security check, then you have to check in manually at a checkin counter, then you have to pay a passenger fee at yet another …
The next morning, I awoke and took a 6:45am shuttle to the airport. It was a very quick 5-7 minute ride to the terminal.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
I chose this hotel since I had an early morning flight out and didn't want to risk getting stuck in traffic if stayed in the city. The hotel is located very close to the airport (5 minutes from Terminal 2 - Air Asia) and 10 minutes from Kota Kinabalu International Airport. The hotel also provides a free shuttle service as well.
The room was basic but comfortable and while the hotel is not located in the city per se, the city center can very easily be reached by taking a taxi for about 15 ringgit. You could also possibly walk into the city if you have time to kill and want to catch some rays.
