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.

After spending a while walking around the city we headed back where we had a quick map before getting ready to venture out. We awoke at about 6pm and noticed the fan had turned off. There'd been a power cut which was ...
... waterfall and relaxed on sun beds with ice cold beers. The day had started badly but as the five of us relaxed by the pool it soon became coined as 'the best day ever' instead.

We saw some of the orangutans needing lots of care in an enclosed nursery area where they are ...
... in the sun and water for most of the day, stopping only for noodles at lunchtime. The boat journey back was great fun, with the driver introducing us to the local community on one of the islands. The picture shows an example of the houses they live in all year round. A big Indian dinner and beers was a final goodbye to the girls who headed off early next ...
... I was quite relieved to be taken to the door of my hotel rather than having to walk from the bus stop, a good 20 minute walk away in the torrential rain! I was sure the bus driver had said 8pm was the last bus but sometimes they get English numbers wrong! Its always best to get them to hold their fingers up as well just to be sure. I'd spotted sewing machine men at the market so took my broken canvas bag to be fixed while I waited on a little blue plastic ...
... And I did it at 1.09! The evening before the run I got myself into this hotel just next to the start. As I arrived there, it turned out that they messed up the booking and they didn't have a room for me. They literally laughed and said that my booking was cancelled. After I strongly insisted that they sort out a room for me they got me a cab and sent me to another apartment hotel. Luckily there was a room ...
