Get away from it all at the Nexus Resort, an idyllic resort nestled within the rainforest of Sabah, a Malaysian state on the island of Borneo. The resort is about 17 miles from the city center of Kota Kinabalu, but with a host of recreational opportunities on-site, there is no need to leave the grounds of this haven in Malaysia.
Nexus is home to eight restaurants and bars, including many with buffets to satisfy picky eaters. Sports lovers can tee off at the 18-hole championship golf course, challenge their talented companions to a game of squash or tennis, or catch the complimentary shuttle to the resort's Lagoon Park, which boasts a 75-acre nature park and a host of water activities.
Travelers preferring a more relaxed style vacation are also well catered to with the luxurious spa options. Many travelers love relaxing on the powder-white sands of the on-site beach, which at four miles long is never overcrowded with guests. In fact, visitors report that they rarely bump into other holidaymakers! The resort also has three freeform swimming pools and manicured gardens, which are perfect for an afternoon stroll. The Nexie Club for kids ensures parents can indulge in the couple's time they crave.

TravelPod Member ReviewsNexus Resort & Spa Karambunai Kota Kinabalu
Our stay in Nexus Hotel in Karambunai was good. Good food. Good amenities. People were nice. Even the beach was nice and quiet. It wasn't crowded in September so we really had the nice and quiet vacation that we wanted. The only thing is, we were bitten by insects in the hotel room. We stayed in 4 Beringin. We went home having a lot of small swollen insect bites.

... close up was the coral. Red, yellow, blue and white, shaped like fans, mushrooms, brains - every shape and size you could image.
The second morning dive was at a site called 'Cravar reef' and the visibility wasn't quite as good but still a fun dive.
We then took a break for lunch before heading out for the final dive of the day. The sea was a little choppy but ...
... fresh, but this freaked me out a bit. Mark couldn't finish his fish so he took the remains back to the girls at reception in the hostel because I'd joked about bringing them food. We headed out in search of banana milkshake and never quite found it. I had a coke float at a bar and then we had a peanut pancake dessert from a market vendor and we finished off our night with some karaoke at a rather dodgy looking bar. Apparently our singing scared off the locals ...
... completely disregarding our safety instructions. We explained to him that he needed to go and put some long trousers and walking boots on ready for the night walk; “right?”, Horatio muttered, in a tone that suggested he didn’t really agree with our demands. He returned from his hammock in more suitable attire and the group divided into two to embark on their night walk. The problem with night walks is that it is dark and that most ...
... the only English word he knew! We really enjoyed the tour – but the next morning when we made our way down to the waterfront we were alarmed to see the massive amount of garbage in the water. The entire stilt village basically lives in a garbage dump – its own garbage dump. Not to mention the untreated sewage disposal coming directly from each house. Not the most environmentally friendly place to live – and we saw children swimming around below the houses. Yikes.
... The lodging was another place we needed to get a boat to and after a short ride round the coast we disembarked and wandered into the pretty grounds of the park.
We couldn't check in to our lodge until mid-afternoon so took a hike out to Pandan Kecil beach, ninety minutes away through well trodden but very pleasant wooded and grassy paths. A sign we'd spotted at the lodge warned us of stingers and crocodiles at this beach but plenty of people were swimming and you could ...
