My wife, kids (ages 10 and 7), and I spent four great nights at the Nexus Karambunai. The resort is set on a long and secluded beach with calm waters. It was typical for us to walk on the beach with just ourselves and sand crabs which made artistic constellation-like patterns in their wake. When we weren't at the beach,...

Have read "Better Options Elsewhere" review and agree wholehartedly. We stayed in the 2 brm spa suites at around the same time. The suites are quite nicely laid out, new and fresh, but the whole deal has the feel of being a bunch of privately owned rooms/villas that are still in the "guaranteed income" phase of the investment plan, which...

Just returned from a 7 night stay. We stayed in an ocean panorama room with a great view of the sea. The setting of the resort was great - a long beach surrounded with hills covered in rain forest, which stretched right down to the beach. Checked in quickly and efficiently. Food was good in the main restaurants, we ate...

Have read through some of these reviews and, while I think a couple are a bit harsh, they are generally on the mark. I would like to stress that we found the staff at the Nexus resort quite good. The problems here largely rest with management. We stayed in the "newly opened wing of 2-bedroom duplex Pool Villas and 1-...

Our family regularly visits KK for holidays. We have stayed at several different places in and out of KK city - all good! This time, we decided to try a night at Nexus, as we had heard a lot about it over the years. Unfortunately, the whole experience was disappointing. In fact, we could not wait to leave! The problems...

We spent 3 nights over Easter in a 2-bed Villa. We booked the Villa thinking that we would have more space with 2 teenagers. The Villa looked nice in the photos and we were really hoping for a great weekend. Firstly take note - the Villas are about 2km from the hotel itself - so you have no choice but...
