After the MCO protocols were relaxed earlier this month, many Malaysians have been flocking away from their busy lives for a much needed vacation.
Located just off the coast of Semporna, Sabah, Nusakuya Resort has been a big hit amongst international and local travellers alike. With warm and deep ocean that you can see to the bottom, it’s no surprise that the popularity of this hotel on water has been surging.
With all the information on this pristine and immaculate retreat, could this be the next stop you make on your bucket list of travel spots?
Entering the resort through the main arrival deck, take in the sights from one end to the other, and feel the breezy crisp air.
Varieties of wood were used to create this infrastructure from top to bottom. From walking along the deck to discovering all the amenities this resort has to offer, these natural materials seem to go hand in hand with the theme of this resort as to resemble an escape into a turquoise dream.
There are three kinds of rooms to choose from: the Deluxe Room with a Queen Bed, Deluxe Room with Twin Beds, and a Triple Room. While the former two are pretty self-explanatory, the Triple Room consists of one queen-sized bed and one single bed.
Each room comes with a satellite television, an en suite bathroom, and air-conditioning if the cool ocean breeze isn’t what you fancy for the day.
All the rooms consist of a balcony which connects to a stairwell into the ocean. This way, you’ll get to experience the privacy of your own suite while also being able to take a swim straight out of your room!
There’s even an inflated mattress on the balcony if you feel like sleeping under the stars rather than going to bed indoors.
The bamboo shoots were built as a divider between the rooms, to ensure unlimited privacy even when you are swimming in the ocean.
If the weather is too hot or humid, catch a seat indoors and enjoy your meal in a more comfortable setting.
Just looking to catch some breeze?
Kick back on the deck chairs or even take a light swing on the white rattan swing chairs for an Instagram photo to tease your loved ones.
The views of the sun setting against the distinct and translucent waters will make you believe you are coasting international waters, while only spending the Malaysian Ringgit.
Did we mention that the resort is part of a coral conservation initiative?
Keep your eyes peeled at night, you may come across an aquatic animal or two! Here’s a video of a tortoise found wandering calmly around the resorts’ waters.
A hidden gem that’s finally starting to emerge as one of the top travel spots for 2022, Nusakuya Resort has to be the next exploration for domestic trips!
