Most amazing place to sit and watch the sun go down.nthe evening entertainment was very funny, and different each night, we never laughed so much, we tried to chat to some Japanese people, who were very nice, a good place to be.

very expensive, not worth the day fee You only get the use of a sun bed for the fee, nothing else, and all the food and drinks are very expensive here.

Everyone told me that we should not miss this! And I have to agree. Though it would have been better if we had reached this bar much earlier, to score a space right at the edge of the bar, where we may have gotten an unblocked view of the sun setting on the sea. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful sight!... More

Despite what people tell you, this is not the only place to see the sunset in Kota Kinabalu. This place is nice but expensive and sometimes quite crowded. Drinks and food are as you would expect in any good tropical resort. The sunset is spectacular but you can get the same view for free just down the road at Tanjung... More

Make reservations to avoid disappointment. The sunset from this vantage point is amazing.Food is also quite delectable. It is like an appendix off the hotel so when having a cocktail it feels as though u floating off a barge in the sea.
