If you’re in need of some inspiration on where to holiday, we’ve got your back. You can score an exclusive SNAP special rate for these 3 hotels!

Destination Deal #1: Nexus Resort Karambunai, Kota Kinabalu

Considered by many as the hidden jewel of South East Asia, Kota Kinabalu is an underrated gem of a travel destination.

With its pristine beaches and sublime views - and no other resort lives up to Kota Kinabalu’s namesake than Nexus Resort Karambunai.

Why? We’ll let their pictures do the talking:

Breath-taking, isn’t it? Tucked nicely on 65 acres of lush landscapes, you’ll find yourself waking up to 6km of gorgeous, white sand beach!

The Nexus Resort Karambunai rests upon the backdrop of the majestic Mount Kinabalu, lending itself an emerald of nature behind while facing an endless horizon of calming turquoise on its front!

Its offerings and facilities are no less impressive either - there’s an 18-hole championship golf course for the avid golfers. Kayaking, windsurfing, and jet skis for thrill-seekers. Jungle treks and snorkelling for nature-lovers.

For those who prefer a quiet retreat, however, Nexus's soft and squeaky white sand beach is a welcoming embrace for happy days.

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining too. From superb Szechuan cuisine at the Noble House to classy dining at the award-winning Olives Mediterranean Restaurant, there’s a flavour to fit every mood at Nexus Resort Karambunai.

If you’re after lazy days of sand, sun, and sea, think no further. A truly serene and tranquil hideaway from busy modern life, The Nexus Resort Karambunai is the perfect place for you.

Destination Deal #2: The Prestige Hotel, Penang

No travel list in Malaysia is complete without Penang! Renowned for its unique heritage scene and mouth-watering cuisines, there’s much to see and even more to eat in Penang.

Recently, however, there’s a new establishment in town that cuts a different cloth from the rest of Penang’s hotels. Yes, we’re talking about The Prestige Hotel!

With its landmark design being the talk of the town in 2020, The Prestige Hotel is Penang’s latest independent hotel that tastefully reinterprets Victorian design heritage with contemporary luxury like no other.

Originally a century-old warehouse used by traders in the late 1900s, this 162-room hotel retains its distinctive Victorian charm with colonial interiors and lush garden conservatories.

Of course, with prestige in its name, you’ll find no expenses spared in making every corner of this hotel a class above many others - from bronze fittings etched into its walls to an infinity pool with magnificent quayside views.

Explore The Prestige Hotel and you’ll find many Instagram-worthy spots to fill your feed. Its picturesque Glasshouse restaurant brings back vibes of Victorian-era dining while the vibrant enclave of retail and dining outlets delivers an impressive envelope of colonial architecture.

The Prestige Hotel is also tucked neatly among Penang’s hotspot of delectable food finds - it’s the perfect launching point to explore Church Street and right into the heart of George Town!
