We stayed at the Nexus Resort in Sept 2010 (original booking was at the Shangri-La Tanjung Aru, however we changed our booking due to the renovations at the Shangri-La). We were quite apprehensive given all of the negative reviews on this site, however we found the resort to be great - relaxing, staff very friendly and helpful, beautiful setting, great...

I stayed in this hotel with my friends for 2 days and 2 nights recently and frankly, this is the worst hotel that we'd stayed in. Considering the price that these guys charged, this hotel is a rip off and a scam. There are 2 main parts to this hotel. One is the main hotel and the other is the...

This is a hotel that has gone bad at the core. We stayed in the Pool Villa. During the first night, we were presented with spoilt BBQ food reeked of decay, which was subsequently disputed by hotel staff, claiming that the chef ate the entire dinner. In the pool villa room, fire alarm went off, toilet did not flush well,...

Exceptionally courteous and helpful staff. Very well presented grounds. Fabulous beach - perfect for morning or evening running or just walking - with rainforest backdrop. There were a lot of jelly fish in the sea once you moved out from paddling depth. Noting other reports perhaps we may have just been lucky that we did not encounter any biting insect...

I am not one to often complain. We're here on our honeymoon. We stayed here for 2 nights before a jungle trip over to Sandakan area and back, and had no complaints. In fact, I thought it was the best resort I'd ever stayed in. We were travelling with 2 othersfor part of our trip - one of which was...

We have been staying at the NEXUS beach resort for the past 11 years and we would never ever in our wildest dreams have thought that it could be possible that we would say and write the following! During the past 5 years the service and the “total Nexus package” showed signs of bad management. Chefs came and went just...

We had good expectations about this resort & as we only live an hours flight away were hoping that it would become a regular escape - how wrong!

The resort suggests that you are in Heaven or very close to it - the claim is not too far from truth. Excellent private beach, lovely villas and lush greenery all around. One feels close to nature - with the rich flora and fauna. facilities are very well maintained and staff courteous. On the flip side, there is practically nothing...
