1. Still have evidence of people smoking on non-smoking floor. Cigarettes' butts in front of lifts. 2. They cant even provide tea spoon in the room (stayed in junior suit most of the time). Excuse by housekeeping, they don't have the spoon. 3. TV's astro channels not active few times. Have made complaints at the counter. If this continues, will look for other accommodation.

The hotel and facilities actually are a bit old. But overall it is worth to stay with this price. One thing to complain is about wifi signal is not strong enough. The room that is located far from wifi router totally cannot receive any wifi signal.

The check in was okay. The room is spacious and cold as the ventilation is good. The water heater isn't functioning and the shower 🚿 head is rusted and leaked on the top. It's in the middle of city centre so you can easily get the food. And super speed Wi-Fi even inside your room. 👍🏻 I asked to be moved to the other room. The bathroom cubicle can't be closed. Worse, the floor is flooded with water 💦! Surely it's been quite sometime as the stain is obvious. And I can't charge my laptop as the unstable current for all ports (it works fine on the 1st room). So I booked the hotel at the opposite, Shervinton Boutique Hotel which offers free buffet breakfast for the same price!

The islands are especially popular among scuba diving enthusiasts because of its crystal clear water, amazing beaches and fantastic snorkeling oppurtunities. The airport consists of one terminal and serves domestic flights (catered by Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia) to Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu and Kuala lumpur. The new terminal was officially open in December 2001 to serve the raising numbers of passengers headed to marine and natural parks located near Tawau. This minimalistic airport offers limited facilities. Nevertheless, if you are travelling to or from this airport, you may grab some drinks and snack from the convenience store to fill your stomachs. There is also a money changer counter at the airport if travellers need to change to Malaysian Ringgit. While the airport has ATMs and a money changer, note that the money changer closes relatively early and the ATMs do not always work properly. Therefore, if you are arriving late and intending to take a taxi or bus, do ensure that you have at least enough Malaysian Ringgit to pay your fare. Locker service is available at the airport as well. Charges may vary according to the size of the luggage or bags deposited. For your convenience, parking lots are also available at the airport.

For food lovers, Tawau is also known for its great seafood restaurant (most popular are the huge tiger prawns). Don’t forget to give them a try!

How to Get There

Both Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia offer daily flights from Kuala Lumpur to Tawau. It takes about half an hour to get to the airport from the Tawau town and about an hour from Semporna town. If you are heading to the town from the airport, you are required to purchase a taxi coupon from the taxi counter before heading outside the terminal building to get a taxi. The taxi fare is fixed depending on your destinations. A cheaper solution is to travel by public bus from or to the Tawau Airport.
