And I'm back! Went to Kota Kinabalu on a 4 day/3 night vacation with my friend, Grace. On her insistence, we stayed at Shangri-La Tanjung Aru resort. At first, I didn't want to stay there although I was the one who suggested the resort. It's just that I found the price a bit too steep for my budget. But she convinced me since we haven't travelled for a few years now and I really need this vacation away from work, I thought I deserved it. And I'm so glad I relented because the hotel was fabulous!
We were picked up from the aiport by a hotel staff. Here's Grace posing outside the airport.
Check-in was a breeze! When we went out of the aiport car, the staff directed us to the lobby and we were asked to seat and wait for a couple of minutes. Then I was asked to fill-in some forms, while they gave us cold towels and welcome drinks.
I originally booked us a superior Kinabalu mountain view room but upon check-in we were upgraded to a deluxe room at the Tanjung wing. Look at those beds! They're so soft and comfy, although I didn't get to sleep that well because I missed the husband.
And the view from the balcony of our room. We had a view of the swimming pools and the beach. It was always so tempting to go for a swim when we look out our balcony.
Our balcony has its own seating area. It can get a little hot outside but there's a ceiling fan in the balcony so it's still a nice place to hang out.
But we also have a seating area inside the room.
The bathroom is very nice as well, the countertop is full with toiletries.
Up next, more photos of our trip. I wish I could have eaten low carb bars before the trip so that I looked more fit. Grace and I were always taking a couple of photos of each other before we got the perfect one (the one where we don't look so fat hahaha).
