A comfortable and luxurious oasis in Kota Kinabalu city. Service is excellent, restaurant buffet is really extensive and satisfying, atrium lounge is impressive. Somewhat underwhelming until you step inside.

Adequate hotel near the waterfront. Rooms typical Hyatt and comfortable, staff friendly but not over efficient. Breakfast first class. Traffic in Kinabalu is a nightmare so allow plenty of time to get to the airport(or anywhere else)

The hotel stay was perfect. The front office staff was very helpful and service was good. We only stayed for a night and can say the breakfast was good, variety and tasty. Thumbs up for the overall services

The hotel seems not has five stars level, it is old building and the facilities also not very good. The swimming pool is small with good view. While the staff are very nice, we request a sea view room and they help us to change my room.

We stayed here as a 6 day package which included buffet dinner, afternoon tea, two massages each and complimentary drinks. The hotel has been a great place to relax and get to explore Kota Kinabalu.

If you are staying in the city hotels, there are really two choices - the Le Meridien and the Hyatt Regency. I have stayed in both. These hotels are quite similar in price and quality, but for me the Hyatt is the better of the two. The reason being that the experience is much better, as well as the pool... More

So the Hyatt has nice rooms & nice decor but what really sets it apart is the service. Everyone knew are names after a day and nothing was too big a trouble. Pool was ok but not a highlight! The breakfast was also fantastic will definitely go again!
