The 18-hole par-72 golf course was designed by golf architect Ronald Fream and has hosted many prestigious events, most notably the Malaysian Amateur Open in 2007. The course hasn’t gone without reward either, winning the Best Resort Golf Course in Malaysia and being voted the Third Most Memorable Golf Course.
The 4.5* hotel at Nexus Resort Karambunai, like the golf course, is surrounded by breathtaking scenery with the Mount Kinabalu in the distance. Across the resort there are 236 Borneo Villas, 243 Deluxe Rooms and six Grand Royal and Presidential Villa Suites. The deluxe rooms are both spacious and elegant, all coming with a furnished balcony or terrace to enjoy the excellent views across the golf course, luscious gardens and idyllic Karambunai Beach. In-room amenities include a modern and separate bath and shower, a stocked mini bar, an LCD TV and many bathroom essentials which will make you feel comfortable and at home. The suites and villas at the resort will be more suited to groups of travelling golfers due to the added space, several bedrooms and large living area.

There are eight dining options at the resort catering for the tastes and palates of all guests. For some local dishes, head to the Kingfisher Malaysian Restaurant while some fresh, homemade Chinese food can be enjoyed at Seoul Fairway & Grill.
