Kota is a Malay word for “city”, hence Kota Kinabalu literally means “City of Kinabalu” after the majestic Mount Kinabalu.
Kota Kinabalu, known as a Nature Resort City, is the capital of Sabah. This charming coastal city lies by the coast overlooking the South China Sea and the Crocker Range where the Mount Kinabalu stands majestically. One a clear sunny morning, Mount Kinabalu is visible from the city.
The Huffington Post, global online news portal named Kota Kinabalu as one of the best eight places around the world to watch the sunset. (Truly, Sutera Harbour Resort is the perfect spot to catch the majestic sunset with your favourite drink in hand!)
