It was my third visit to this hotel. Both time I had enjoyable hospitality of the hotel. Right from grand lobby to check in to rooms to room service... All is very well manage. Staff comes up genuine in helping, no where I felt it as artificially. Was pleased with food for breakfast. Rooms are nicely done with comfortable bed and all necessary services (tea, coffee, gym, sauna etc.) For business traveller. Must recommends to other people traveling to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

Girls and guys at reception are so nice! Great sense of humor and caring! Room was super clean and nice! Hotel is well equipped! Just at the waterfront. There are lot of seafood places. Don't forget to spend some time at hotel pool. There is a nice bar, good pool, very relaxing.

They do a lovely breakfast here and the staff are very attentive and friendly. The hotel is also very accommodating as it allows day trippers off the various cruise ships that visit the area to utilize their pool facilities.

We welcomed 2018 by celebrating new year's eve at le meridien from the new year's eve dinner to the new year's countdown party. We had the humongous yet delicious roast lamb as main dish. The roast lamb was prepared with TLC and it was reflected from the end product. We couldn't finished it so we tapau the lamb and had lamb roast for the next couple of days. It was great until the last bite. Probably the best roast lamb we've had anywhere in Sabah. Special thanks and kudos to the F&B team for providing such great food and services to my family and I entertaining our demands each time we dine it at le meridien KK. Always look forward to stay and dine here at every opportunity. Will always call this place as our 2nd home in KK.

First of all, thanks to one of your staff, Mr. Rizan for his magic to get me a room for my late booking even during the peak festive seasons of Chinese New Year. Really appreciate your help to attend my last minute booking and acknowledged me as one of your SPG members. The Front desk Team (Reazie, Fiona, Erni and Malcolm) has been incredibly nice and was very helpful to get my Check In faster and easier. Kindly use SPG Mobile Check In function to ensure your room card is ready upon your arrival. Thanks for your Concierge Team as well for their amazing 24/7 service. Thank you to Mr. Suresh for inviting me to enjoy the perfect high tea session with great live music performance from local band. Overall, thanks for your service with a smile that made my perfect trip in KK. Looking forwards for joyful new experience for my next trip there.

Thank you for being nice to my parents. My mom and dad went to kota kinabalu for the first time and worry about staying this hotel that they don't know well but when they come back home said it was the greatest hotel they ever visit.. And said "Lee You Jin" manager. Thank you so so much and I will visit Le Merdien definitely when I visit Kota Kinabalu.

It's our first time in Kota Kinabalu. I've been here in July last year for 5 days. It's perfect location just 15 min from airport, not far from delicious restaurant, pier and convenience store. All staff at front desk, restaurant at lobby and swimming pool are so kind and friendly. Unforgettable fish and chips, it was so delicious!!

Great hotel. Strategic location - walking distance to almost everywhere in KK town. Newly renovated with modern interior. Great breakfast buffet. Most importantly the staff - from the Manager to front desk and housekeeper are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

we stayed for 4 days in chinese new year season, two rooms for 5 people, and all of them were vista sea view. you can see sunset at your room, and rooms are clean and comfortable. the best point I deeply moved was hotel employee`s kindness and perfect caring! lee you jin, the korean staff, was the best manager I`ve ever seen. I have traveled about 20 countries and stayed for more than 50 hotels, but I`ve never seen perfect staff like her. our family feels more happiness when we come back to hotel than when we traveling daytime because of her. every morning she serve our breakfast with her smile and kindness, and, she was so diligent that the very seeing of her makes us energetic. when we started travel at morning, everytime she advised good tips for us with her smile, and it was always key point of that day`s touring. It was fantastic travel for our family because of her. I strongly urge hotel to raise her salary! Rodney was briliant and best serving manager in our trip! when we have a breakfast, he always take care of our members. I was so impressed that he treat us like his family members. we feel like become a President because of his perfect serving! I think he works very passionate. I see he working at hotel almost whole day! it was very impressive to see his effort for guest of hotel! I think he will be promoted soon. le merdian is happy hotel because you have very excellent staff!

I stayed from Feb-5 to Feb-12 at this hotel. This hotel was perfect for shopping and tour and room was quite big and clean. All staffs I met are very kind and courteous. There were seasonal fruits and various breads in the breakfast place. Not only breakfast but room service and pool bar were tasty. This staying was the best enjoyable staying among SPG hotels. I would like to say SPECIAL THANKS! Rodney O'brien – His Service was perfect! After checking-in I got the handwritten letter in the room. That was enough to felt welcoming and impressed to my family. We cannot forget his anniversary event never ever. That was the most memorable event. Whenever I have any difficulty ,he fixed a problem smoothly and he always served us as a friend and family. Ms.Lee,Yoojin- She was the only one can speak Korean. So she was very helpful for Korean and performed us warmly with a smile also presented high-minded, pureness and kindness And the staff that checked-out for me I’m sorry but I don’t remember her name. Whenever I met him he smiled us and called my name. He made me feel special and valuable. My wife and son can’t wait to go this hotel. I’m sure that my next vacation might be Le meridian KK again. So much thank you all guys. See you soon !
