This is my third time at this property. I stayed at the Tanjum wing (which I like more), and this time I stayed at the Kinabalu wing for the second time. The rooms in this wing have not gotten any changes for the last 10 years. USB charging outlets and a Nespresso machine are reserved for the executive and horizon rooms. Otherwise the experience at this resort does not disappoint.
