    Nice view, Spacious and clean room”

    We really enjoyed our stay at Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai. Most of the staffs were kind and had taken proper and swift action for the things we requested. Room was very clean, spacious and well managed. We have never experienced any problem during our stay at the Resort for three nights. We were very satisfied with all the facilities of the Resort. Surely we will come again for the next visit.

    A Littel More Attention to Detail”

    The resort is beautiful with the grounds kept immaculate. It was low season when we were there so many of the entertainment/services advertised around the resort were not running. This proved constantly disappointing and we wondered why the promotions weren't just taken down if they weren't applicable at the time. One of the breakfast restaurants closed due to low occupancy without warning. Food in the Sunset Bar was outstanding. Food in the other restaurants was okay. Drinks were extortionate prices. No idea why beer cost so much when it is a fraction of the price everywhere else we visited in Sabah. Staff were generally all very friendly and attentive. The rooms and walkways could do with some maintenance. Little things like broken washing lines, safes, remote, cracked tiles, stained sheets, and damp issues in the rooms were not deal breakers but are easily and cheaply fixed so it was disappointing to find some areas were a bit run down. All in all a lovely place for relaxation.

    Great anniversary experience”

    It was our anniversary and everything was perfect, the Nexus team even offer complimentary delicious cake and anniversary card! Thank you Nexus team. The place is beautiful and breathtaking. The only downside is it took nearly an hour before our room was ready. The check in time was at 2 pm but our room was only ready a couple minutes before 3 pm. But still, it was an unforgettable first wedding anniversary

    Good accommodation, family friendly accommodation”

    It is a little far away, but there are also good accommodations for family members, especially infants, which are also useful because there are Korean staff. I would like to recommend a tourist to take a rest for nature-friendly lodgings. The accommodation was in good condition and breakfast was also worth eating. I'd like to recommend a tourist with my child. Unfortunately, the grab wasn't caught well, but it was an alternative service for staff to call a help. There's also a pricey marit.

    You can never go wrong staying here ❤️”

    I am in awe in my experience staying here even just for 1 night. And i hope I could come back and will surely come back here. Everything was perfect from the location ( a bit far from the city which I think is very okay) to the facilities and staff of the resort. They were very accommodating and even let us checked out late without charge. The beach resort is so big you and every part of it is picture worthy. Their beach is also a plus plus for having a powdery white sand and super clear water 😍 There are many restaurants also which you can choose whichever you prefer. The room is so big and spacious. The T&B also a spot in the hotel to remember for it is very clean and spacious. We had a great view from our room overlooking the garden and beach. All in all, it was worthy staying here. Great value for money. Yes it’s a bit expensive, but clearly, it is what you paid is what you get moment. Plus plus plus for this beach resort 👍👍👍

    Excellent staff. ”

    I booked the ocean panorama deluxe room. The room faces the ocean however the view was 80%blocked by the trees. So I had it changed a couple of time. The gist is I recommend to book the ocean panorama premier rooms because these are recently renovated and the view of the ocean is unblocked because it is on the higher floor. The staff fr the reception to the restaurant are A++ and would the deciding factors for me to recommend this property. The property itself is a bit tired looking while the landscape is well maintained, the roads leading to this property is not. Although I stayed in the newly renovated room, the bed sheets had two v visible torns + the shower cubicle was blocked. Things that I v sure the hotel would have rectify with a smile but I didn’t want to trouble them.

    Nice beach”

    Quite far from Kota Kinabalu and there’s nothing in the immediate area. So you are pretty much stuck at the resort if you don’t want to ride in to town that takes about 50mins . Mostly Asian market stays here and that reflects in the variety of food and drinks. Breakfast selection and general variety on the menus of the different resturants within the resort was pretty poor if you are European and poor quality but that’s probably because 99% of the guests are Asian and European cuisine is not their focus . Nice but wouldn’t visit again.

    Not the best resort in the area, only provide average service quality and facilities”

    As a resort in this famous travel location, Nexus Resort & Spa in Karambunai just average, not the best resort in the area, only provide average service quality and facilities. Facilities here are aged, although most are working correctly, but they are not in their best condition. And the service here is not good, come here early, but strictly no early check-in from the reception. And during the check-in process, the receptionist didn't introduce any facilities or activities provided by the resort. After all, this is not just a hotel, it's a resort for leisure, a briefing on facilities is reasonable here. Their WiFi is not able to connect, but lucky 4G still covered in here But the beach here is excellent, the beach is long, and water is clear during good weather. And resort location is far from city, so you can enjoy a relaxing environment where away from people

    A private beach with absolute panoramic view of the south china sea ”

    Great place for relax and chill. Luxury resort with quite a lot of beach activities available, price is reasonable as well. It is not too crowded, but not creepily quiet, good place for a group of friends or family to enjoy the time. It is one the best place to view sunset. There's a night club for drinks and karaoke, which is quite fun. The only drawback is the hotel facility is slightly aging, but still it clean and good.

It is a perfect getaway for anyone. Sands are soft, beach is private and clean, all staff are super friendly and helpful, rooms are spacious, everything was perfect!

    Aged resort and no manners staff”

    Many thing not up to date. The floor inside my room is sticky and scar every where. Cabinet are aged and the fridge inside is ridiculous loud. Breakfast are so so only, should provide more local food such as chicken curry, rendang, kurma and many more Malay dishes, nasi lemak pun tiada. The thing I dislike the most is one of the F&B staff chit chat about the Chinese tourist, they are the one who pay for your salary. Staff should respect them. Overall will reconsider 10 times if I want to stay at this resort again.
