“Your diet is a bank account. Good food choices are good investments.”-Bethenny Frankel

Al Fresco Restaurant is situated by the side of a beautifully landscaped sea-view pool. Al Fresco patrons enjoys outdoor dining with spectacular scenery and a relaxing atmosphere. The extensive selection of pasta and seafood dishes and famous wood-fired pizzas are complemented by a lively cocktail menu. We went here twice, both for lunch, on the first and second day of our stay at Magellan Sutera Resort. Though not that a grand restaurant, it is still worth visiting for its great food and affordable prices. Al Fresco is one of the many restaurants in Magellan Sutera Resort (Sutera Harbour Resort, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah).

“I take a massage each week. This isn’t an indulgence, it’s an investment in your full creative expression/productivity/passion and sustained good health.”-Robin Sharma

How we wish that we can take a massage often as Robin Sharma. We previously visited Chavana Spa (LINK) and now it’s about time to experience the Mandara Spa Discovery package. Albert Einstein said that “The only source of knowledge is experience.” and so we’ve experienced the product and service by Mandara Spa, producing this review. How often do you get a chance to read a spa review by two gents? We believe, rarely. Most reviews were written by ladies. Well, this is an honest review from two gents in regard to the experience at Mandara Spa, Magellan Sutera Resort which is located in Sutera Harbour Resort mammoth complex. We visited Mandara Spa and after the whole experience, we dare to conclude that this Spa is indeed the best Spa not only in Kota Kinabalu city but in the entire state of Sabah.

“The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore..unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seeks victory over those things that seem impossible…it is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors..to meet the shadow feature without fear and conquer the unknown.”-Ferdinand Magellan

Such a great quote by Ferdinand Magellan. A quote that inspired us to be a bit different when we write-up our experiences. 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.

“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.”-Camille Pissarro

We had the chance to stay at The Magellan Sutera Resort, Sutera Harbour Resort recently. The resort is uniquely different from other resorts that we have been to. Some say, the difference is due to its unique architecture that is pretty much inspired by the Rungus longhouses of Borneo. For the two of us, this resort gave us that tranquility of the sea that we’ve witnessed from our own balcony. We felt so relaxed here. This is truly great resort in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. We love our room so much that we dedicate this entry alone to review the room that we stayed in for 1 night. A short stay but we both saw many beautiful things in this mammoth resort that always stay humble. We really mean that.

When you come to a café, you have high expectations- good food, excellent service and conducive environment for you, your family and friends. However, rarely a café ably to cater all these expectations. High end cafes normally are just too quite because the clientele comes from elite patrons, if they must talk loudly, they will talk about business. How do you get the kids to adjust in such café? The normal café’s on the other hand are just too loud, not that perfect for those wishing for a quieter spot. It is said that there is a place in Kota Kinabalu where you can actually  mix up all kinds of people, a cafe that gives the freedom to its patrons, of all ages, so to say.
