Breeze Beach Club at The Pacific Sutera Hotel is an open-air a-la carte restaurant and is complemented by a dining menu that includes tempting signature cocktails. Breeze Beach Club is near to the poolside area thus making it the perfect place to have some great lunch after some swimming or sunbathing! It’s also one of the best place in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah to view the magnificent sunset. We came here for the Breeze Weekend Fiesta few months ago. Here is the LINK to our review of that awesome BBQ Night. We enjoyed every minute we spent here as the view and food (the beverages as well) were so good! We had great lunch at Breeze Beach Club.

Getting to Breeze Beach Club

Getting to Breeze Beach Club from the Main Lobby area is easy. One need to get to the ground floor level and simply walk towards the garden nearby. Being at the garden is already a great experience as you get to see many beautiful things here, the greenery, some fish and birds! No feeding though!

Go through this ‘bridge’ passing through above that beautiful medium size lake and be amazed with what you are about to see. There are some beautiful flowers here as well. Selfies or group photos is the best thing to do here. No rush, take your time, admire the surrounding.

Here is the aerial view of the garden (partly) seen from our room on the 8th floor. It’s pretty nice view from higher floors. Amazing landscape work by The Pacific Sutera Hotel team!

Poolside

After that little journey at the garden, you will reach the poolside area. Massive pool is waiting for you, that is if you are an in-house guest. Spectacular view of the sea and cool fresh air from the sea breeze, enjoy every moment of it and sunbathe if you want to otherwise order that favorite bevvy of yours from Waves Pool Bar.

There’s children pool available for kids or for the young at heart.

If you look again at the garden path that took you to the poolside, there is the gorgeous Pacific Sutera Hotel building. Wonder what’s  inside that large windows on the top 2 floors? That is the elegant Pacific Club which we previously wrote about, here is the LINK.

Imagine that you are about to dip in this refreshing pool and swim towards the Waves Pool Bar (A swim-up bar!) to sip your desired beverage. The experience is definitely priceless!

The Breeze Beach Club

Not far from the poolside is Breeze Beach Club. This awesome place is close enough to the beach and plenty of seating, available, choose as you like. Let’s have a look at the overall layout of this seaside bar.

Outdoor seating area. It’s quite breezy here and with sandy beach as the ‘floor’. Take off your shoes and play your feet around..

Another great seating area facing the Marina. Here you get to see all that Yacht docked to the berth.

We chose to seat at this area as it gave us the pool view sand sea view!

During sunset, most people will fill in this area as the view from here is amazing! There’s a moderate size of man made beach there for people to sunbathe or swim in the sea (if the pool is not challenging enough).

This is another perfect spot for viewing the sunset, close to the sea and with picturesque view of South China Sea and Tunku Abdul Rahman Park.

Our Lunch

IMG_7591

We ordered Deep Fried Breaded Chicken Finger, 1 Dozen Malaysian Satay (Beef & Chicken), Blueberry Apple & Pineapple Mint. Perfect food and beverages for our lunch!

IMG_0946

1 Dozen Malaysian Satay (Beef & Chicken) – RM30.40 nett. This dish is served with Peanut Sauce, Cucumber, Onion and Rice Cake. The meat are tender and had amazing taste of spices, properly marinated before being grilled. It’s best eaten together with the condiments, cucumber, onion and rice cake by dipping it in the peanut sauce. We love the Peanut Sauce, it’s one of the best that we had so far.

IMG_7594

The peanut sauce texture was perfect when we tasted it. We were able to taste the peanut pretty well. Some peanut sauce at other places are just too fine in texture that at times we failed to see the ‘presence’ of peanut let alone ably to detect the taste. This one at Breeze Beach Club was just perfect! We wouldn’t mind coming back here again just to have more of this dish.

IMG_0947

Deep Fried Breaded Chicken Finger – RM 24.00. The dish is with Chili Flakes and served with Thai Chili Sauce and Garlic Aioli. Those who are not familiar with Garlic Aioli, it is a Mediterranean sauce made of garlic and olive oil and, in some regions other emulsifiers such as egg. The sauce’s names mean “garlic and oil” in Catalan and Provencal. It’s pretty much differ from that usual Mayonnaise which is an emulsion of neutral-flavored oil like canola, egg yolk, vinegar and/or lemon juice and sometimes a dash of powdered mustard to bring out the flavor and help the emulsion stay together.

IMG_7596

Both dipping sauces were amazing in taste and texture! We love both! While that Thai Chili Sauce gave us the taste of sweet and spicy, the Garlic Aioli gave that creamy and garlicky taste, two different sauces, each with distinct taste. We actually prefer Garlic Aioli to Mayonnaise.

IMG_7600

Pineapple Mint – RM 21.00. It’s a combination of Pineapple Juice, Fresh Pineapple and Mint, truly refreshing and healthy beverage and we strongly recommend this kind of drink if you come here.

IMG_7584

Blueberry Apple – RM 21.00. This beverage is a combination of Blueberry, Green Apple and Yogurt. It’s indeed refreshing and must-try item. Not only it’s delicious but healthy as well!

IMG_7593

The Chief Editor, @joehairie, was extremely happy with the food and beverages that we had at Breeze Beach Club and so did I. The total bill was only RM96.40. For that kind of pricing and the experiences gained from one single visit, we strongly recommend this seaside bar to all of you. It’s indeed worth it to visit Breeze Beach Club and had some good meals while enjoying the breeze and the view! We will sure to come back for more..
