With us, you’ll be docking at one of the most strategic spots in Kota Kinabalu, a thriving city with the soul of a small town. The beauty of Dock In’s location is we’re nestled just minutes from historical landmarks, shopping utopias and nature retreats among others, so you’ll be immersed in a cocktail of metropolitan living and a laid-back lifestyle. All these unique cultural experiences are just a hop (or a Grab ride) away.

There’s so much to love about this historic city. Engross yourself in the nostalgia of the North Borneo Railway, where you can chug through traditional villages and paddy fields on a steam train, or soak up the sun, sea and glorious seafood at Tanjung Aru Beach. Hit some hiking trails the next day or pay a visit to the markets for intricate handicrafts and palate-teasing delicacies. You’ll feel like a local in no time!

If you need recommendations on more of the best spots to hit, just ask our friendly receptionists or head down to the common area to exchange tips with other Dock In-siders. After all, it doesn’t matter where you come from. What matters is where you go from there.
