In your search for first class accommodations in Kota Kinabalu, there is one name that should be at the top of your list; the magnificent Sutera Harbour Resort.
A fully integrated resort, the 384-acre Sutera Harbour Resort is built on reclaimed land and is situated just 5 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the heart of Kota Kinabalu.
The centrepiece of the resort is the Sutera Harbour Marina, Golf and Country Club which includes the 27-hole Graham Marsh designed championship golf course and the 104-berth marina that can accommodate 13 mega-yachts and 91 smaller vessels.
The course is divided into three distinct nines of varying difficulty; the Garden (holes 19-27) set by the Pacific Sutera Hotel
, the Heritage (holes 10-18) which runs by the Magellan Sutera Resort
and the Lakes (holes 1-9) adjacent to the golf clubhouse.
The club amenities include a 41-bay, two tiered driving range, a fully stocked pro shop, practice greens complete with areas for chipping and practicing side hill lies, fully equipped locker rooms with sauna and spacious function rooms.
This is the only 27-hole facility in Sabah and is also the only club to offer night golf to its patrons.
The club has been host to the Asian Tour’s qualifying school and is looking to host a full field event of its own to properly showcase the golf course and the rest of the property.
5-star accommodations are the order of the day at the luxurious Pacific Sutera Hotel.
An air of subtle elegance permeates the hotel with its grand entrance, high ceiling lobby lounge, panoramic view of the sea and 500 immaculately appointed suites and guestrooms all backstopped by superlative amenities and excellent service.
The hotel’s swimming pools are beautifully landscaped and surrounded by greenery and sit a stone’s throw away from the resort’s private beach.
A splendid view of the Tungku Abdul Rahman Marine Park and the tropical islands that lie therein provide a tranquil backdrop to the spectacular sunsets of Kota Kinabalu.
The world class Mandara Spa sits between the pools and the beach and offers the classic Balinese experience where guests can unwind and relax in the artfully decorated rooms or enjoy a full massage beachside in the open air pavilion.
