In the hotel’s Earth Hour Campaign message to hotel guests, the General Manager of Promenade Hotel Kota Kinabalu- Mr.Hafizan Wong encouraged all to commit to action that go beyond the hour by taking part in several related activities to promote energy conservation and help reduce the effects of global warming.

Hence, encouraged all to support the upcoming Foot Reflexology in The Dark.
