Shangri-La International Hotel Management has unveiled plans to develop Hotel Jen Kota Kinabalu, the brand's first property in Borneo and the third in Malaysia.
Opening in 2018, the 440-key hotel will be located on top of PacifiCity mall in Likas Bay, opposite the Sabah Trade Centre and near the new Sabah International Convention Centre currently under construction.
It will comprise twin iconic towers and offer views of the South China Sea, coastal wetlands and Mount Kinabalu.

For F&B options, there is Jen’s Kitchen, which offers all-day dining with local specialties and international cuisine, while Jen’s Kitchen On-The-Go is a deli counter offering easy-to-eat meals.
The announcement was made today by Shangri-La International Hotel Management and Pacific Sanctuary Holdings during a signing ceremony at Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa, Kota Kinabalu.
