Not far from Kota Kinabalu City, within the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, lies the picturesque and serene Manukan Island Resort. An amazing place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of city life, amidst coconut trees, sandy beaches and glorious waters. Is it any wonder that this year, Manukan Island Resort has the honour of being nominated under the ‘Luxury Beach Resort’ category in the prestigious World Luxury Awards?

Vote for Manukan Island Resort

Although the hospitality industry is badly impacted by Covid-19 pandemic, it is slowly gathering momentum with the awesome support of local vacationers. Winning this Award will surely be a boost to Malaysian tourism locally and internationally, especially since the Government has reopened our borders to foreign airlines.

As such, I hope you will spare some time to vote for Manukan Island Resort, by clicking this link.

Besides the wonderful accommodation, there are also restaurants on the island. Therefore, no need to bring tapau and bekal, folks! These two separate restaurants will cater to your appetite, no worries!

Imagine lounging on this balcony with your loved ones, or picnicking outside with the sea breeze filling your lungs. Even though I don’t snorkel, dive or even swim, I would love to stay in this Resort!

    Dulu time masih single, sebelum berkahwin, saya suka betul pergi melepak dekat pulau2 di KK ni.
    Saya lebih prefer snorkelling berbanding habiskan masa di mall atau tengok wayang.
    Now dah kawin dan duduk jauh dari KK, semua tinggal kenangan sajalah.
    Tapi Manukan is always in my heart.

      Sama laa… waktu muda2 dulu saya pun suka snorkeling, walaupun x blh berenang, cuma mampu float & berendam ja…. πŸ˜€ Lagi satu, bila pi Manukan, suka hiking & round 1 pulau. Time tu masi cergas!

          We went to Mabul Island which is located near Manukan Island few years back. Hopefully, we can go to Manukan Island for holiday next time. Such a beautiful island..

            Both are incredibly beautiful luxury beach resorts. Especially for those who can swim & dive..

    Jika saya tak silap macam Manukan Island Resort bawah sutera ni ada buat promotion Merdeka bulan lepas. Ada fikir nak pergi cuma package ketika itu cuma hanya harga accommodation sahaja, bila fikir since it is on island lebih mudah for customers if the management masukkan sekali harga pakej inclusive of return boat trips and full board meals biasanya ala carte meals is quite costly on island vacations especially now if they need locals to come. At the end you need to fork out more than the accommodation price.
    Yang di Pulau Mantanani Sutera juga ada buat promotions which might be more attractive sebab inclusive of return trips, full board meals and activities. Mudah sikit nak budget additional only for extra activities not included.
    We would love to stay in Pulau Manukan Resort if there’s not many additional cost to consider. They will have many competitors as the island trips in Tunku Abdul Rahman is cheap and island hopping package in Semporna at the moment is also so discounted when international borders is still close.
    Sutera Sanctuary Lodge in Poring ingat nak duduk masa cuti Merdeka but fully booked, one in the wish list for trip hiking to Langanan waterfall.

      Good idea sis, blh saya forward sama management SSL! You are right about the additional costs.
      Saya pun sdh laaama betul x visit Pulau Manukan…. But I remember vividly the beautiful beaches, hiking up the small hills, looking at the island from a higher perspective. Very memorable place.
      Hopefully, the promos for local will be extended until end of year.
      Btw, ingatkan sis skrg ddk di Semenanjung…. Let’s cast our votes on the 26/9 πŸ˜‰
