Have read through some of these reviews and, while I think a couple are a bit harsh, they are generally on the mark. I would like to stress that we found the staff at the Nexus resort quite good. The problems here largely rest with management. We stayed in the "newly opened wing of 2-bedroom duplex Pool Villas and 1-...

Our family regularly visits KK for holidays. We have stayed at several different places in and out of KK city - all good! This time, we decided to try a night at Nexus, as we had heard a lot about it over the years. Unfortunately, the whole experience was disappointing. In fact, we could not wait to leave! The problems...

My colleagues and I stayed for a total of 4 nights. We had 2 whole days of meeting any the remaining 1.5 days to visit places in KK. We had very little time to utilized the facilities but the long beach is great. It is a peaceful getaway but do keep in mind that it is at least 35mins from...

We spent 3 nights over Easter in a 2-bed Villa. We booked the Villa thinking that we would have more space with 2 teenagers. The Villa looked nice in the photos and we were really hoping for a great weekend. Firstly take note - the Villas are about 2km from the hotel itself - so you have no choice but...

We were there for 7 nights. It is in a beautiful setting of 6km long sand beach with 3 swimming pools. It is reasonably priced which was the main reason we chose it and second being the perfect resort for our kids - who love swimming. Services were kind of disappointing. Lots of activities were charged for nothing! Renting a...

The hotel is quite old. The bathroom has stains around. I needed to take an hour to check in and settle in a room because (1) I booked a twin room in the internet but I was given a queen sized bed without explanation. (2) I requested to change another room with twin beds, but later discovered that the screws...

I stayed at the Nexus in February on business. The first impression is very good – a well designed open building with a beautiful garden, pretty pool and above all a huge stretch of a white sandy beach and crystal clear water. All rooms are facing the sea, catching the sea breeze and providing great views. The room was a...
