Explore Kota Kinabalu from our idyllic waterfront location

Rewards Category 3 · Points needed per night

For those seeking balance, the new Kota Kinabalu Marriott Hotel in Sabah offers an idyllic location to explore the best of the "Land Below The Wind". Set on the famed Waterfront - a popular center for dining and entertainment - and 15 minutes from Kota Kinabalu International Airport, this hotel indulges guests in panoramic views of South China Sea, authentic local culinary delights and thoughtful service. From the dramatic lobby to the sleek, modern rooms and suites, light wood tones and a calming palette glow under soft ambient lighting. For dining, five venues are set against a stunning backdrop of Sapi and Gaya islands. Each offers a distinct experience, such as the interactive Japanese cuisine at Teppan Table and Big Fish, our take on surf-and-turf. Our speciality, Sapi Island Martini, awaits at Stylo; our rooftop bar overlooking the sea. Our M Club executive lounge is among our business-focused features, complemented by naturally-lit event space featuring an 8,803 sq. ft. Grand Ballroom.
