Hyatt Hotel: "Soak up a spectacular view" State of Sabah Hotel Tip by hennanights

State of Sabah Hotels: 87 reviews and 132 photos


We spent a week at the Hyatt hotel in the heart of Kota Kinabalu. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were great. When arrived we discovered that our travel agent had booked us in on the wrong date - a month before! The staff were great, assured us it wasn't a problem, and found us a room.
The hotel has a couple of restaurants but we never ate at them as we were always out and about. They have a wonderful little bakery that sells cakes, chocolates and pastries.
Our room was very nice being a typical Hyatt room. Big bed and telly. Mini bar etc etc. But the best thing about it was the balcony that overlooked the sea and pool area. The sunsets were incredible.
Our booking include breakfast which was a buffet every morning. there was a wide selection on offer. Something for all taste and was all pretty good.
We did spend some relaxing time by the pool drinking long islands. They were a bit pricey though so if your on a budget then you might want to hit the club across the road.
The hotel had a laundry service by we used the one in a directly opposite, it was half the price.
