I specially like this mall and its sunset front area as if I am just looking at Singapore level of amenities. The mall itself has a Hard Rock Cafe area. It has stalls offering cheaper prices for usual commodities.

I had just conveniently dropped by this mall while walking along the harbour front towards Imago mall. There is nothing notable here but many tourists happened to be very ardent in taking photographs of statues in front of Harrison cafe, near the entrance.😂😂

Oceanus is a beautiful mall and also located in KK center. May be because lack of attractive stores, 70% of the mall is empty. Only Sports Direct Store and Hard Rock Cafe KK are attractive. Better go Imago Shooping Mall as both of the malls...More

Not thst many shops open here. there was a light festival behind the mall that requires RM5 fees. the mall provides free baby stroller rental with deposit of RM50. All in all, if you are looking for a proper mall, go to Imago instead.

The view of the sea from Oceanus was beautiful but unfortunately, the mall has fewer shops in it. But Hardrock Cafe is there to get some drinks.

First time here and this place is empty! Patronised by many youths and many shops already closed down. Hung out at Starbucks for a view. What a waste!

I mean seriously, good location, good building but businesses are dying. Went there near sunset, the boardwalk area were infested with loafers with their weird sense of fashion, sitting on the stairs selfying like no tomorrow. Clearly an eye sore and an indication that this...More
