An international buffet perfectly paired with charming scenery for an unforgettable evening at sea. First of its kind in Sabah, the North Borneo Cruise takes you on a 2-hour scenic cruise past the islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine park and down the central coast gliding along the city’s famous Waterfront. With two different sessions daily starting from the golden hours of sunset at 4:50 to 7:00pm to when dusk paves way for city night lights at 7:50pm to 10:00pm, we cater to all crowds… from sunset chasers to night crawlers.
Stunning ocean views and gentle sea breeze greets you on the sun-deck. …. Irresistible live music awaits you on the dancefloor. The dinner cruise fondly named ‘Luna’ makes the most of its ocean views by featuring a sun-deck that openly greets the gentle breeze of the South China Sea, along with what the city of Kota Kinabalu is most famous for, the blazing sunsets. On the main deck, an air-conditioned—fully enclosed and unimpeded by weather—buffet dining area combines sightseeing with on-stage live performances. Large windows framing the scenic allure of nature on the outside isn’t the only thing that commands attention. Front and center, an intimate platform stage with quality entertainment tempts diners to let loose on the dancefloor. On weekends, a Bamboo Orchestra brings forth the sounds of Borneo through a palette of unique bamboo instruments.
