Top 10 Sunset Spots in Sabah

According to Kathleen Peddicord of the Huffington Post, Sabah has one of the world’s best sunsets in the world. There’s more reasons for this to be true, especially with our clear sky and location near to the sea, one couldn’t find it hard to appreciate a nice view of the sunset around KK. Here are the top 10 list of the best places to view sunsets in Kota Kinabalu:

1. Tanjung Aru Beach


The reason why I put this as the top spot from this list is because of the memories we had at this place. For those who were born before the 90s would know that this place used to be the place to stop by for some street food and coconut drink. Some of us used to swim here too! It was the best place to hang out for yumcha sessions back then!

2. Sutera Harbour Resort


Sutera Harbour Resort is a 384-acre fully-integrated property development on the coastline of Kota Kinabalu city centre in Sabah, Malaysia.

Sutera Harbour Resort is the perfect spot for a sunset view in the city, it has a nice bar and pool, you can enjoy some good food or even a cold beer!


3. Shangri-la Tanjung Aru

Located approximately 10min away from the city, Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa promises luxury and relaxation in an idyllic beachfront setting. This tropical retreat features 492 contemporary-styled rooms and suites reflecting Borneo’s rich cultural heritage. A wealth of enriching experiences beckon within the resort and beyond. Enjoy rewarding water sports activities and island-hopping cruises, awaken the senses with a blissful spa treatment, or start the day with a fulfilling yoga session. Young families are well catered to with hours of fun guaranteed at the resort’s Water Play Area & Pool, the only one of its kind in Borneo.

4. KK Waterfront (Anjung Samudera)


The Waterfront, is the city’s premier entertainment and dining centre. Locals and tourists alike have come to regard The Waterfront as the place to be for a casual fun night out with restaurants and cafes serving a wide range of local and international cuisine. Pubs, karaoke bars and a dance club with lively music set the mood for a memorable evening in the city.Within walking distance are the Le Meridien, Promenade and Hyatt Kinabalu hotels as well as a number of budget accommodation. Shopping centres from air-conditioned malls to open-air markets selling anything and everything under the sun are also close by…

The Waterfront is accessible by bus, taxi or if you’re staying at any of the resorts within or outside the city, by shuttle bus. If you miss your shuttle back, taxi service is available 24-hours a day. There is ample parking space within and adjacent to the waterfront.
