Manukan Island Resort, Kota Kinabalu


The villas are situated on a slope and have completely unobstructed views of the sea. A stretch of white sandy beach is yours for the taking. A host of watersports are available for the more adventurous. Those seeking some solitude will find the waters calm and soothing.

A short trek away is Sunset Point, where, on a cloudless day, the sunset is simply captivating. End the day with a sumptuous dinner under a cabana by the beach, lulled by the ocean night breeze.



Remember earlier when we said you can experience both sunrise and sunset in one day? At Sutera Sanctuary Lodges, you can!

Whether you are seeking solitude, or adventure, or a little bit of both, you can be sure Sutera Sanctuary Lodges has it all. From fabulous lodgings to warm hospitality to great food, Sutera Sanctuary Lodges is your one-stop holiday destination.

Inspire Living Tip:
We highly recommended staying overnight at Manukan Island to avoid groups of day trip tourists. Once the last boats leave at 4pm, the island is amazingly peaceful and all yours where you can enjoy the sunsets and cabana dinners.
