Staycation at Hyatt Regency Kinabalu

Was supposed to blog about this last year but you know, when procrastination keep hitting in. And now my backlog keep rolling down like a snowball. 

Hyatt Regency Kinabalu is one of the 5-star hotels listed in our staycation wishlist. So when we stumbled upon a promotion, immediately we booked it without consider any longer. Normally the room rate ranging from RM400-600 for a normal room with a city view but we got like RM380 for a king room with sea view. This is definitely a great steal for us!  

Hyatt Regency Kinabalu 
Date Stayed:
 13 March - 14 March 2021 (1 Night)
Type of Room: King Room with Sea View  
Room Rate: RM380.00 per night 
Breakfast: Included

Hyatt Regency Kinabalu is claimed to be the first and oldest international chain hotel operating in Kota Kinabalu city center. Speaking of the location, it's strategically situated in the heart of the city center allowing the guests easy access to local attractions and sights such as Night Food Market, Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal, Gaya Street Weekend Market, shopping malls, restaurants, cafes and more. The only downside we experienced is the insufficient of car park provided for the guests with car. 

Normally, the check-in time is 3pm but they were so kind to allow us to check-in into our room around 12pm. The check-in process was pretty fast and smooth with no deposit required. My husband always opted for the higher floor and they gave us a room on the 12th floor.  


Furnished with classic wooden floor and outfitted in neutral shades of brown, the room we booked was exceptionally spacious with notably wide window overlooking the South China Sea. There is another type of room with city view but I personally would recommend to book the room with sea view cause for sure, you will be amazed with the gorgeous and serene sea view. 

The room might be old but it's well-kept with modern furnishing and well equipped with all the basic room amenities such as: 
  • Air-conditioned room 
  • Comfortable king sized bed 
  • 55" flat-screen TV 
  • Desk and chair with Universal outlet and USB port - ideally for the business traveller 
  • Cozy couch  
  • Minibar including mini fridge, electric kettle, tea and coffee facilities 
  • High-speed wireless internet access and Internet data port 
  • Wardrobe/closet with ironing facilities 
  • Safety deposit box 

As for the ensuite bathroom, the layout was surprisingly unique with sliding wood panels that can be partially opened. I like the bathing area and toilet are separated and there is a bathtub within the bathing area. Toiletries are provided for the guests but not in the full range. 

Not just that our promo room rate comes with sea-facing room, it even includes breakfast for 2. The sprawling Tanjung Ria Kitchen offers an abundant buffet breakfast of continental and Asian items, with several made-to-order hot stations. We're absolutely spoiled with enormous choices. 

Located on the ground floor, Hyatt Regency Kinabalu boasts an outdoor pool surrounded with tall palm trees and lounge chairs. However due to its location, I found the pool isn't that fascinating and stunning compare to the one I experienced in Kota Kinabalu Marriott Hotel where the latter not just offering idyllic view of South China Sea, you can even enjoy the breathtaking golden sunset view from their outdoor infinity pool.   

There is even a fitness area includes decently-equipped gym plus a steam room that open round the clock. 

Apart from allowing us to check-in earlier, they even allowed us to check-out at 6pm when the normal check-out time is 12pm. Our staycation ended with a complimentary of one scoop gelato which can be redeemed at Mosaic, alfresco street-side dining that not just offering various flavours of gelato but they have pizza and pastries on their menu.
