The resort is just 15 minutes from the airport. All the facilities are first class. I could not have wished for a more luxurious room. What makes this resort so very special are the wonderful staff, warm, friendly and genuine. Children are well catered for, with lots of activities and their own swimming pool. Being on my own I took my evening meals in the Borneo Lounge. The food was very good and plentiful, my thanks to Kelly and Levinda. Breakfast can be busy,however I was promptly found a table. The choice of food at breakfast is marvelous. My thanks to Gavin and all his team for making my holiday so very special. Everything thing is done to ensure the guests have a most enjoyable experience. I must also thank Yuki,Sarah,James Soon,Julia Lena, Rohan and Wan. I highly recommend this excellent resort.

Fun in the sun
Comments from Adriel (11 years old) and Shayna (10 years old) after spending 5 days and 4 nights at the resort: “This is the best holiday ever!” “We were given VIP treatment until it was so embarassing!” XD There is so much to do but so little time. Those with children will definitely love the resort’s waterpark from day to night. We had initially planned to go to Bandar KK but didn’t get to because we just didn’t want to leave the resort! XD Staff were very friendly and helpful as we were with an infant. F&B Service Manager, Abdul Majid, made sure we were attended to during our makan sessions at Tatu even when it got busy during the breakfast buffet. On our last night, the crew at Peppino’s willingly took turns to look after my fussy baby (6 months old) so that I could eat in peace. Will definitely come here again... Hopefully soon! Terima kasih banyak!!!

Nice resort
A great place for any couple and family. Staffs are nice and friendly and helpful. However, some furnitures are too old. ie. we see some unremovable stains on sofa and the bathtube is already decayed and seem not very clean.

Another PERFECT holiday
Once again we spent a wonderfully memorable holiday at this Hotel. The staff here are amazing. They are all so very congenital, helpful, knowledgeable and generally wonderful people. It is a credit to the Management team who themselves are readily available to assist and make sure our holiday is everything we could ever hope it to be. The resort is well located and provides every facility needed to have a happy fulfilling holiday. C’mon Aussies. Give this resort and destination a go. Guarantee you will want to keep returning time after time, like we do.

Great but Large hotel
I stayed at the Tanjung Aru with a friend. It was our first visit and we were greatly impressed! The hotel is lovely, but like many others say it is in need of an upgrade, however it is not terrible. Everywhere is clean and tidy and all the staff are very polite and will do anything to help you have a great stay. I believe the second phase of the upgrade will start very soon. As two single adults i personally found this hotel slightly to busy but i can see how it would be awesome for families and groups of families. The swimming pool is lovely - Just please look after you children. I saw many children bobbing around in the pool totally alone and not being watched. There are also many other activities for the kids to try out as well. If you are not in a family group then i highly recommend paying the extra for the club access!! Breakfast in the main restaurant was crazy busy with people everywhere. however when we had breakfast in the club lounge it was much more civilized, with exactly the same food available as downstairs.
