Newest Review: ... The food was delicious as well. Although the restaurant is very small and doesn't look up to much from the outside, I really would recommend this restaurant to other people. To be honest, we probably would not have gone there either but it was recommended to us by my parents who went to KK a few years ago. Jothy's is situated about a 5-minute walk from the Centrepoint shopping centre so is ... more

I stayed in Kota Kinabalu (also known as KK) in October 2006 for nearly 3 weeks. Kota Kinabalu is the capital of Sabah. Getting to Kota Kinabalu (KK) You can fly to KK from London Heathrow as we did. We travelled from Heathrow to Kuala Lumpar, and then to Kota Kinabalu as its not possible to do a direct flight. The flight in total was around 15 hours - 12 hours to Kuala Lumpar and 2 and a half hours to Kota Kinabalu. Accommodation We stayed in a five star resort while we were in KK which was outstanding and very reasonably price. There is a large variety of places to choose to stay in KK, these range from 5 star resorts, down to small ... Read the complete review

I regularly visit Kota Kinabalu on business and I strongly recommend a stay here should you go to Borneo. KK -as it is affectionately called by the locals-is a progressive and impressive place and is Malaysia's latest city. It is also handy for the Kinabalu Park,which houses the tallest mountain in South East Asia and was recently declared a world heritage site. A first time traveller to Kota Kinabalu need not be afraid of not finding good accomodation. Kota Kinabalu has a very good range of suitable hotels for both the tourist and business traveller. It has certainly come of age as far as the accommodation scene is concerned. The ... Read the complete review
