We stayed in a 2-bed spa suite which was very spacious and modern and had a great view of the sea. The suites are a bit far from the main resort though and meant we had to rely on the shuttle all the time. We walked along the beach once but it took ages. The dedicated pool and pool bar...

This is my 1st time to write a review. Since there are lots of bad comments on Nexus which seems to be quit different from what I have experience there, so I think I should provide more information for those who plan to stay in Nexus. I have been in Nexus with my wife & my friends in early Oct....

This is a stunning resort in a great location and it could be a real winner. It is a bit of a way from Kota Kinabalu but this shouldn't put you off if you want a resort break. Unfortunately it's let down by poor service and sloppy management. Most of the staff gave the impression that they didn't care and...

My husband and I have just returned from our trip to Malaysia. We'd only booked two nights at Nexus, but within an hour of arriving we'd decided to extend it another night. The staff were lovely, the facilities fantastic, pool clean, food amazing, it was quiet and private. We asked for ice to be delivered to our room and it...

Mid 2010 the Nexus expanded, and now offers the established resort, new spa suite complex, and a village of new villas with individual plunge pools. They are all on the same huge complex, but the spa suites and villas are a 5min bus ride (20 min brisk walk - along the beach) from the main resort and it's attractions -...

Do not be put off by the bad reviews, I have never felt the need to do a hotel review before, however having just returned from a stay at the Nexus in Late September with my partner, I felt I must write one. After reading the reviews before we left, I was having serious doubts and second thoughts that I...

What a shame! 19 of us have travelled from around Australia and Asia to come together for our mother's 70th birthday celebration. From check in onwards the comedy of errors and shocking service has continued (despite getting the Management involved). Wrong villa allocation, resulting in one family having to move TWICE (without assistance), babysitters not turning up, room service taking...
