This ethnic-themed, gloriously designed resort incorporates the natural surroundings with fine timber furnishing and local artifacts. The grand entrance is a majestic longhouse-styled lobby, an architectural tribute to the Rungus natives of Sabah. All the 456 luxuriously appointed rooms and suites unveil balconies that offer magnificent views of either the carefully manicured gardens or the awe-inspiring beauty of the South China Sea and its occupying islands. Guests are a three-minute walk from the Sutera Harbor Golf Club and an 18-minute walk from Kinabalu Golf Course. Other than golf sites, State Mosque is only a kilometer and a half away, and Sand Bar can reaching in about 23 minutes. Whatever the reason for your stay, The Magellan Sutera will take you to the next level of comfort.

great choice to stay in KK”
it was a great experience to stay in Magellan resort. We stayed at Magellan Club Suite room and the room was spacious. Employees were kind and we were pretty much satisfied. However, one thing that was inconvenient for us was the wifi connection. We had many times that wifi got disconnected while using it. Other than that, it was all good!
The hotel was convenient and accessible. But the agoda who did the bookkeeping made me hard.”
The day before I traveled, I received a cancellation email from 'agoda' so I was so surprised. I made a mistake in agoda. They immediately confirmed and rescheduled the accommodation by rebooking.Other than that, hotel facilities and golf course are satisfactory.
Excellent Hotel in Strategic Location and a Beautiful Marina - Live Corals & Multitudes of Fishes”
Picturesque view of the Marina from our Suite. Came for a family holiday and took 5 rooms. All 5 were tip-top in comfort, cleanliness and deco of the suites were 6 stars! Front desk staff as well as concierge staff were friendly and very helpful. Kudos to the Management of Magellan Sutera. Location too was perfect. Very close to airport as well as the town. I would definitely come stay at The Magellan if ever i pop back into KK. Thanks
Wonderful stay indeed!”
The food was superb! The place is amazing with views! Was not quite happy with the checking in process though when they asked for a separate voucher from an “agent” when i already produced the booking confirmation from agoda which never happened before at other hotels but the reception was really helpful so thank you! Apart from that, its a very beautiful hotel with peaceful ambience.
Great hospitality with a to-die-for view!!”
Was upgraded from Deluxe Sea View to an Exec Suite & enjoyed it! Staffs were so helpful and friendly throughout my stay. Love watching sunset at the lounge bar. Will recommend this to others!
Nice & spacious room ”
Very large room and beautiful bath, ample spacious for our relative visit and nice environment and sea view.
Upon check in I was received by the receptionist and duty manager named Maheraa who were able to meet my request. As I had to rush to attend a funeral they helped me to check in earlier. So a big Thank You for assisting me.
Location is good and near by city and airport. Good swimming pools for both kid and adult. Breakfast is just average. Good place to see the sunset. Facilities are old. There were smell and ants in the room. In the morning, you can feed fish at the harbor. Our kids spent an hour for feeding fish. Most problem was lack of staffs. But, staffs were kind and good. It was generally good. But price was too high considering of quality.
Relaxing place with a beautiful view and fantastic staff”
We stayed here on our last day in Kota Kinabalu after having to stay in a very busy and crowded area. I wish we had stayed here from day 1 of our trip! The view was beautiful, and all the friendly staff made us feel very welcome. My husband had accidentally left his phone in our room after we had checked out and left the hotel, but the housekeeping staff found it and we were able to get it back from the receptionist. Honestly the best hotel we've stayed at so far in KK and will definitely stay here again when we come back.
Great Facility with three hotels together”
Great place. Lots to walk around and lots to do. Remember to ask about what is happening at the front desk. We forgot to do that and have to slowly discover as we walk around the place. The hotel is clean. And not much bugs given it is a tropical area. Interior of the room is a bit dated. But given that it is such a big room and big facility, good enough to compensate. I would come back again. And next time might try the golf course
Need to improved the rooms reservation department . I waited for more than 10 mins keep on hold. Call back several times but no one answer the phone. Even thou the front counter is busy, but need some one to received calls. Hope your department will improved this department. Thank you
Wonderful hotel in awesome location.”
This is really a very lovely hotel in a nice location. The hotel stuffs are very friendly, cooperative and amicable in their behaviour. The breakfast was fantastic, the food was of with lot of varieties. Overall our 3 nights experience in this hotel is in a word fabulous and superb.
Can't get much better than this place”
My wife, sister-in-law, her husband, their niece, and I all went here for a 5 day restful vacation. We got adjoining rooms in the resort, and it was well worth the money. The pools were always clean and cool, the rooms were great, and the service was awesome. At the Sutera, you are at most a 10 minute ride from just about anyplace you'd want to go, with the Imago mall literally right next to the golf course and the old townish kinda area just a 6-7 minute ride away. Download Grab (an Uber-like taxi application) before you go and you are pretty much set for a restful, relaxing stay.
Alone in Sabah”
My weekend at Magellan Sutera was a delight to my being alone. Peace and quiet by the beach. Lots of girls in bikini. It is good to get a room on the higher floor. Nice view and cool breeze. The room needs some renovation.
Great hotel with plenty of pools and sun loungers. Excellent location and staff couldn’t be more helpful. Lots of choice for breakfast although the evening meals not so great and quite expensive for what’s on offer. Ruby spa brilliant Only problem we had was the access for a push chair.... no ramps anywhere in the hotel! With the Carpark being at the very bottom of the staircase to heaven the only choice is to walk up the car access ramp. Only found 2 lifts side by side in the whole main complex other than that was brilliant
A bit disappointed ”
Breakfast are so common Not much choice Check in time late Rooms are comfortable will come back again what i expect is 5 Stars breakfast.
clubRoom service awful!!”
From the moment we checked into the club house, the receptionist's facial expression was angry. I felt bad about receiving a service. After that, the receptionist was unfriendly to everyone when 'HappyHour"time. We called her several times when we were sitting on the table, but she pretended not even see it. (~more times) It was the worst.
Quite good but,”
The resort is specially for Family group, not for person. It is good to relax and enjoy swimming. BUT, payment system is not so good.. We couldn't tell and pay with our room number, we should pay cash for each place. Moreover, food is low-level. It is better to go eat outside.
Hotel was really good”
4th time staying here and was great.. view was ok Breakfast .. really have many choices Swiming pool was great.. Only the aircond was leaking.. didnt asked for change of room becoz only staying for 2 nights
Still as good”
Travelled for one night stay and have stayed here many times. Enjoyed the dine in food..pineapple fried rice, fish head curry and they even made an exception and ordered deep fried seafood for me from the other restaurant and delivered. Rooms are always comfortable and facing the sea.
