    The beach is brilliant, the best that I've been to on Borneo. There is the odd sand fly but not enough to stop you swimming and using the beach. The hotel is perfect for a family with young children.

    position, courtesy of Staff, the pool bar, attention to detail

  • Family with children

    The location of the hotel is superb and the 6km beach is wonderful. However, there were some jelly fish and rubbish as well. Easter Egg hunt in kids club was done well and for free. Rainforest walk is recommendable, but mangrove tour is overprized and not that exciting. Hardly any explanations were given apart from how to catch a crab. The fireflies tour was not available. The restaurants were not as good as they normally are in Malaysia.

    The kids club was mostly empty because activities were payable based on activities done (not clear from website). Batik painting were enjoyable. The whole kids club experience was a far cry from the wonderful kids club in the Shangri-La next door. The bicycles that were available for rent were badly maintained and the chain came off twice on a 1 hour trip. I did not have to pay the $20 charge, but this shouldn't happen in a five star hotel. The breakfast service was terrible. The coffee was undrinkable and requests for cappuccino were responded to in a very reluctant way. Staff appeared to be badly managed throughout the hotel and quite unresponsive for a five star hotel.

    Mostly I liked about the Villa is the seaside view.

    We were very upset with the level of service in our Nexus Villa. When we arrived at the Main resort, there is no Check in counter for Villa guest and there is no indication earlier that we need to check in a different place and we need to wait for Nexus transportation to take us to Nexus Villa. Nexus Pool Villa comes with Two bedroom, Pool and Kitchen. I would like to complaint about the below things; 1. Housekeeping, we need to contact them to come over and clean the room and Villa 2. Pool is too small for a Pool Villa and pool is not maintained. We had bugs inside the pool. 3. Kitchen came empty, no proper cutleries for morning coffees or tea, this is provided by all hotels. 4. Breakfast spread is not good. 5.We ordered dinner from Villa, but it was cold. We paid RM85 6. Transportation to go out of Nexus is expensive. Hotel guest need to pay RM24 return for city trips. 7. Dinner menu is expensive and its expensive to go out of Nexus too, so if you are booked in Nexus, you dont have a choice but to dine there. Overall, i am unhappy with their level of service, its a beautiful place with bad management style.

    it is a place to relax .

    the prices of the transportation is to expencive .

  • Couple
    3.8

    The buffet dinner is fruitful, but less seafood selection comparing to the other resort hotels.

    The worst part of the Hotel is the transportation! If you want to take taxi from the Hotel, you have to buy the "taxi ticket", which is 75RM for each car (no matter how far you destination is). Also, when I made check-in, I was told by the front desk that my room would be ready by 1 pm, but finally, I need to wait for one hour. Last, the room was not clean enough, because I found that it's so dirty in the bathroom, and also the telephone is badly damaged before I check-in. Comparing to other resorts, I won't choose Nexus next time.

    The ambience, pity about the sandflies though, bitten to bits, very uncomfortable.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Relaxing environment, big spa suite, friendly and helpful staff

    No wifi service at the spa suite, crowded restaurant in main building

  • Single
    3.8

    Need a lot of improvement else they will not last. No returning guest for sure with present resorts conditions. Poor food, unpleasent staff, slow response and everthing far below expectation. Too bad as such beautiful resort and nature being managed/run by unprofessional team.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Spacious room, nice ambience, very relaxing, very close to the beach.. Would recommend to others

    Food quality - lots of room for improvement

  • Couple
    5.4

    Nice tropical resort with vast wooden lobby and lounges, good landscaping, charming gardens visited by lovely birds and nice spacious rooms. Resort price is reasonable compared to Shangri-La. Nice long beach.

    Please get rid those two short check-in/check out staff (a male & a female). They are too rude, incompetent and out there to piss off customers, obviously hating their job. People like that should never work in the hospitality industry. So please spare customers the pain of dealing with them, and their pain of dealing with customers - fire them. This is the 2nd time I stayed in Karambunai (last in 2007). Room cleanliness has improved but prices of food & services have gone insane.... Rm35++ for a bad burger with stale sauces, rm25++ for 10 pieces of onion rings served on a bed of inedible decoration, rm25 for 5 plain bananas. It's a complete ripoff. Your food quality is not that great, so please reduce your prices, otherwise your resort is nothing but a tourist trap as taxi prices are prohibitively expensive in Kota Kinabalu (I have spent over rm500 on taxi in days!).

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Design & location is good,beach & seaside nice...

    Food at the penyu too high cost for local

  • Couple
    3.8

    There were few nice staff in the resort. There were trying hard on improving services and get feedback.

    Most of staff seems to have more interest on those non-asian guests. We've got least attention wherever we go. We've got rejected from the restaurant because we are not properly dressed although we could see other dinners who wearing flip flop like us. Menus are miss leading, not enough explanation, round trip fare for the shuttle bus although I only need single trip.

  • Family with children

    Beautiful location directly at the sea with very nice beach

    maintenance and housekeeping could be improved.
