Went there on a weekend and it was very enjoyable. The Resort is quite big and the rooms are spacious. The beach area is beautiful, quite and not crowded. The staff is very friendly and try their best to enhance the customers stay. However I was a bit disappointed with the food options offered, as most restaurant only offered buffet...

Nexus is a little larger than the type of resort I usually prefer, but despite its size it had a welcoming, homey feeling and friendly helpful staff who made our stay incredibly comfortable. We did a wildlife tour before arriving in Kota Kinabalu so all we wanted from Nexus was a comfortable place to hang out and do nothing —...

If there's one place to escape from the busy town of KK, it's definitely here. It's not too expensive, beachfront served an amazing view and the staff, all of them in fact, deserves a big high-five. Our room was excellent albeit lacking modern amenities, restaurants have great atmosphere but food tasted bland and cold, and the roads leading towards the...

This resort has a dreamlike position, a beach as white and powdery as snow, and a great choice of restaurants, activities and tours. For me, elderly woman traveling alone,it was wonderful to be treated as a queen, WOW!

Huge resort by the sea. Used to be a majestic resort but now lost its lustre due to poor maintainance. Always crowded front counter due to loads of tourists from China but slow checking in procedures. Friendly staff members.

After staying 5 nights in the luxurious Magellan Sutera resort we changed the location to bit more away from the city in hope to be able to enjoy the long beaches and nature. Taxi took almost 35 minutes to reach the Nexus resort from Kota Kinabalu city centre. Resort is located between tropical jungle and the sea and has a...
