Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu
Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
Surveying the South China Sea, the new Hyatt Centric hotel exudes 5-star luxury and striking contemporary flair in the heart of Kota Kinabalu’s vibrant waterfront district. Guests are greeted in the bright and stylish lobby, where the Lobby Lounge offers a place to relax over snacks and coffee in a boldly modern setting. The emphasis on design continues in the guest rooms, styled by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and featuring locally inspired custom artwork that reflects the rich heritage and diverse cultures of Sabah. Each room has a private balcony overlooking the sea, islands and/or lush mountains. Furnishings are distinctly modern, incorporating rich woods, clean lines and contrasting textures. Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, air conditioning and individual climate control, one low-rise king or two twin beds made with crisp white linens, and blackout curtains. Upscale amenities include a 55-inch flat screen TV, mini bar, Nespresso coffee maker, electric kettle, electronic safe and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi. Spacious bathrooms have a walk-in rain shower, plush robes and slippers, and eco-friendly premium toiletries.
The hotel’s ON22 restaurant serves fresh, locally sourced Asian cuisine in both indoor and al fresco settings. Take the spiral stairs from the restaurant to head up to the chic ON23 rooftop Sky Bar, where you can order craft cocktails infused with ingredients from Borneo. Adjacent to the Sky Bar on the 23rd floor is the double infinity-edge swimming pool and shaded outdoor lounge space, offering stunning territorial views, as does the 24-hour fitness center, with a wall of windows overlooking the verdant hills beyond.
