The hotel will also be crowned with a stylish rooftop pool and bar where guests can enjoy a picturesque evening against the backdrop of Sabah’s luscious and vibrant landscape. With 855 square metres of meeting space and an all-day dining restaurant, AVANI Kota Kinabalu is the perfect destination for conferences and social functions.
