Kota KinabaluHilton announced the opening of Hilton Kota Kinabalu, a 305-room hotel located in the center of Sabah’s capital city. An urban melting pot of Southeast Asian culture, Kota Kinabalu has emerged as a growing resort destination for local and international travelers alike due to its unparalleled access to Borneo’s pristine beaches, rugged mountain ranges and incredible biodiversity.

 

“Borneo has long attracted visitors seeking a vacation out of the ordinary,” said Sean Wooden, vice president, brand management, Asia Pacific, Hilton. “At Hilton, we are always looking to be in the destinations that matter most to our guests, and with the opening of Hilton Kota Kinabalu, we are well positioned to deliver our award-winning hospitality from the gateway to this beautiful island.”

 

Hilton Kota Kinabalu is only 300 meters from Kota Kinabalu’s newest landmark – Plaza Shell, Sabah’s first fully green building. The hotel is also near the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park Islands, Kota Kinabalu Observatory Tower, and several restaurants and shops at the city’s Waterfront complex. Hilton Kota Kinabalu is approximately nine kilometers from Kota Kinabalu International Airport and 90 kilometers from the Kinabalu National Park – home to Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site and the tallest mountain in the country.

 

Inspired by Borneo’s unique biodiversity, Hilton Kota Kinabalu’s design features an intriguing fusion of nature and art, resulting in an authentic, minimalist decor that creates a calm and reflective contemporary guest experience. All 305 guest rooms and suites are equipped with motion sensing technology that controls lighting and air conditioning, modern furnishings and ergonomically-designed workspaces.

 

“The opening of Hilton Kota Kinabalu underscores our commitment to growing our presence across Malaysia, situated in destinations where our guests and travelers want to visit,” said William Costley, vice president, operations, South East Asia & India, Hilton. “As tourism in Borneo continues to rise, attracting visitors with its natural beauty and rich culture, I am confident that Hilton Kota Kinabalu is poised to exceed the expectations of our guests by providing exceptional hospitality that is synonymous to Hilton.”
