Cleverly designed as a high end cafe that belongs to the famous Hyatt brand, The Mosaic @ Hyatt Regency Kinabalu offer their customers an unforgettable amazing colorful and delicious all day dessert that includes 14 flavors of homemade ice cream.

Mosaic is a stylish sidewalk cafe located on the street level of Hyatt Regency Kinabalu thus offering the perfect spot to people-watch on the busy street.
