Time to raise your chopsticks in unison and stir up some blessings of prosperity, wealth and good health as we usher in the feisty spirit of the Fire Rooster. A Chinese New Year must-have ritual of tossing the ‘Yee Sang’ – the higher one tosses, the higher the growth in ‘fortune’. The Hotel Team did just that by tossing a unique Tutti Frutti ‘Yee Sang’ (that features premium imported and local fruits & vegetables) together with media fraternity in front of the hotel’s **golden Giant Rooster in the hotel lobby. [**Promenade Hotels & Resort will be running a Facebook Contest: ‘Huat A Big Rooster’ from 26th January – 12th February 2017 with Hotel Stay & Meals as Attractive Prizes to be Won!].

Each new place gives us different thoughts and ideas, broader perspectives though at times challenging and seem impossible, we still proceed the journey which in the end enabling us to write-up the experiences. Same as Magellan, we have no fear in conquering the unknown. It was at the Magellan Club Lounge that we were once again inspired by the same quote. The uniqueness of this lounge at Magellan Sutera Resort-Sutera Harbour Resort, inspired us as well. The wooden ceiling resembles  the cabin of olden days ships, as if we’re sailing while lounging here. We might be imagining things but at least there’s a foundation to that. By far, this is the best club lounge (of hotels/resorts) in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
