HOTEL GRANDIS: A Luxurious Hotel with Fantastic View of Tunku Abdul Rahman Park Islands.

I arrived in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia from Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei around 6 in the evening already was supposed to be at 4:30pm  that because due to the traffic in the boarder.

The weather in Borneo is quite hot sometimes they hit at 37 degrees as per my friend who’s working in Bandar Seri Begawan. 
The Hotel 

The Hotel Grandis are one of the luxurious hotels in Kota Kinabalu that’s offering a great ocean view from some of their rooms and in the Sky Blu Bar at the 12th floor.  It was built in a very great location in the center of Kota Kinabalu.
Upon arrival in Kota Kinabalu, instead of riding in a cab I decided to walk around to find the hotel. After 15 minutes I finally found the property.  The welcoming staff of the hotel assisted me in my check-in process, after presenting my passport to the beautiful young lady in the front desk gave my key card with the short briefing of the hotel policy.
