Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan
It's worth noting that Four Points by Sheraton is the only international four-star hotel in Sandakan. The hotel’s understated and modern aesthetic is in line with the contemporary design of Sandakan Harbour Square where it’s located and certainly stands out among the modest inns around the city. All 300 guestrooms at the hotel have complimentary WiFi and flat screen TVs, and are equipped with the signature Four Points by Sheraton Four Comfort Bed, which is fitted with 250-thread-count sheets. It’s easy to appreciate the practicality and comfort of these uncomplicated rooms, especially when most possess a breathtaking view of the Sulu Sea.
The thirteenth floor is where all the action is, with a well-equipped fitness centre and outdoor swimming pools located on this level. The oft-crowded infinity pool and kids-friendly pool are popular hangout spots for families and shutterbugs looking to enjoy the best view of Sulu Sea and Sandakan town. Also located on this floor is The Eatery, which is the hotel’s signature all day dining restaurant. Once you’re done indulging in The Eatery’s offerings of Hainanese chicken rice and freshly baked pizzas, head over to The Best Brew to unwind over a pint of refreshing draft beer or a cigar at the casual bar’s plush cigar room.
The hotel’s convenient location means the neighbouring Sandakan Harbour Mall, Sandakan Central Market and old town area are just a short walk away. However, if tourist attractions like Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre are what you’re after, then you’d have to give the tour/excursion service counter at the lobby a visit.
