Sunset Bar Kota Kinabalu

As I’ve been to many sunset spots/bars in the past few years, my favourite one would be Al-Fresco restaurant which is part of the 5-Star Sutera Harbour resort complex.

I must say the sunset view from this restaurant is by far the best! You would want to get here by 5:30 PM the latest to enjoy the sunset. In my recent trip to Sabah, I was there on the 2020 new year eve after a day ride around Kota Kinabalu.

Having a good pint of beer while enjoying the dramatic sunset in the evening, I just couldn’t ask for more! I don’t have to look for a sunset bar in Kota Kinabalu when I’m here.

The good news is, this 5-star resort complex is open to the public, even if you’re not staying there! They also provide free secure parking space. How convenient?

Despite being a 5-Star location, the food and drinks price at Al-Fresco restaurant is affordable which makes the trip to here totally worth it! Check out the short video below.

Live Band

They also have a band – three guys on upright bass and guitars singing in harmony with no mics just lung power. They were quite good and being able to hear them in an open-air restaurant was amazing. Check out the short video below.
