SABAH HOTEL SANDAKAN
While in Sandakan one of the best places to stay is the Sandakan Sabah Hotel (formerly the Renaissance). The hotel is located about 2 km from the centre of the town, on top of a hill in quite a picturesque location. It is on the main road, and only a short bus or taxi trip from the main markets in the city centre. The facilities are good – the main restaurant area beside the swimming pool is very pretty. The hotel is only about a 20 min trip from the Sepilok Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre.

In April 2009, the Sabah Hotel introduced its new accommodation wing – the ‘Borneo Wing’. The new wing features 19 units of Superior rooms (3 King bed rooms and 16 Twin bed rooms) and 1 Junior Suite (king bed). The Borneo Wing rooms are perfect for tourists who have a slightly lower budget – you will be staying in a 4 star hotel, with the full range of facilities, but only paying a lot less.
