IT’S getting closer to that time where we ring in the New Year; yes, time passes by quickly. If you are anything like me, all memories of 2007 so far would be based in shopping centres, the occasional trip to the beach and not much else.
Before we let this year slip by, its time to make the most of it, you’ve worked hard, you’ve got your professional life on track but what about your family and yourself, what will their memories be of this year in time to come?
One way to enhance those memories with friends and family [without blowing up the budget recklessly] is to make those memories locally. We have spectacular places within an hour’s drive, amazing beaches, million year old rain-forest and Mt Kinabalu as our own personal backdrop.
A weekend getaway is ideal to recharge your mind, body and get you back in touch with nature. Designed perfectly to accommodate the needs of every family member, and give you that kind of weekend packed with memories for years to come.
Nexus Resort Karambunai is a perfect place to share those treasured moments with family and friends, with 236 Borneo Wing rooms designed within 7 clusters of two-storey buildings set amidst a village garden with sweeping views of the golf course, garden or beach whilst 243 tastefully furnished Ocean Deluxe and Panorama rooms with private balconies arranged in a 5-storey wing offer ocean or garden views.
Six grand Royal and Presidential Villa suites, created for the affluent and discerning few, come complete with luxurious living and dining rooms, gardens and some with private swimming pools. Eight different restaurants and bars whet the appetites of even the most selective gourmets so why would you go anywhere else?
The end of the year is also a time to plan for the next year’s meetings and conference schedule. And who says you can’t mix business with leisure? At Nexus Resort, there are 8 function rooms and a Grand Ballroom that can comfortably accommodate from 60 to 800 people. All the rooms come with international standard meeting facilities to ensure smooth communication and organization of any event.
And to celebrate the end of a successful conference or meeting, you can have as much fun as you want with themed dinners at the Grand Ballroom or any of the outdoor venues such as the Palm Garden, Frangipani Cove or even the gardens and beachfront. The award-winning chefs will ensure that it will be a dining experience of the most memorable kind.
From work to leisure, Nexus Resort Karambunai has it all, so I’m going back there in January of the New Year with my husband who will be flying in from Sydney (as he works there) and my son for a break to recharge our batteries. Nexus…see you again soon.
