The first thing which strikes you when you check in at Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu is the sense of space. You forget that you are in the heart of the city. The glass lobby is lofty, the guest rooms are huge, and there are plenty of well positioned terraces, including one with cabanas dotted around the pristine, mosaic-tiled swimming pool.
Rooms and suites at Le Meridien have either sea or city views, both of which have their charms. Full-length windows overlook the turquoise South China Sea or glittering cityscapes and flood your room with natural light. Large rooms provide an ample sense of space, even for families, with options of single or sumptuous king-size beds.
Dining at Le Meridien is a sensory experience. Opt for the Taste of Discovery dishes to experience the warm, delicious flavours of local Sabah cuisine or dine in Favola, where the chef creates contemporary Italian dishes and presents them with a flair. Latitude 05 is a great spot for coffee or cocktails, but our favourite evening retreat is the Azure Pool Bar with its panoramic sunset views over the sea.
