Facilities at the resort will include several dining outlets, a pool bar & lounge, a 40-metre infinity swimming pool, and a spa centre featuring six treatment rooms with outdoor decks, a walk-in theatre and a yoga retreat space.

 

There will be a host of activities for guests to participate in, such as as kayaking, paddle surfing, scuba diving, PADI open water courses, island hopping, guided snorkelling expeditions, guided nature walks and private yacht charters. 

 

The resort is a 30-minute combined car and speedboat ride from Kota Kinabalu International Airport.
