What people say

Excellent facilities, good location and value for money. location and staff.The location was good. Although Shangri La Tanjung Aru would have been just as good on hind sight. Regretted choosing Sutera Harbour. Upon arrival the first room needed refurbishing. Shower broken, cupboard broken carpet dirty and in need of repair. No lounge chair. Dusty shelving. Totally unacceptable for 5star rating. After complaint upgraded to suite...very high standard and made the stay complete. Hotel in need of money spent on it but location is excellent. Some Airport noise.
