First Night Stay At The LUMA Hotel, Kota Kinabalu

If you asked me whether it is worth or not to purchase the AirAsia Super+, my answer is YES based the travel plans that I had scheduled throughout the one-year validity.

For my recent Sabah 3 Days 2 Nights (3D2N) trip, the return flight ticket cost me only RM 45.20. So, if you are a frequent traveler and have "many" plans in mind, you should really go for the pass to save extra bucks on the flight tickets.

Anyway, for today's entry, I will be sharing about my staycation experience at The LUMA Hotel, also known as the first Design Hotels located in North Borneo and the third in Malaysia after The Prestige and Macalister Mansion, both are located in George Town, Penang. 

The LUMA Hotel opened its door earlier this year on the 30th January 2022 with interior designs purely inspired by the majestic tropical rainforest and Sabah's unique culture.

Hence, from the moment you walk into this hotel, you will be welcome and greeted by the friendly staff to assist you in your check-in process, feel the peacefulness within the premise as almost every corner comes with the calming Earth tone, both green and brown that representing the richness of Sabah's rainforest.

The word LUMA originated from one of the local ethnicities, Bajau which carries the meaning of home in English. Therefore, The LUMA Hotel aims to provide warm hospitality and make your stay feel more like home. 

Even the hotel's logo is so close to the local nature richness as it is inspired by two local flowers, the Rafflesia and Coelogyne Papillosa (White Orchid) that can be found on the highest mountain in South East Asia aka Mount Kinabalu, one of the Sabah's pride.

The Iconic Staircase In The LUMA Hotel 

Every structure and design in The LUMA Hotel represents what Sabah are rich and unique for. As an example, this iconic staircase looks shell-shaped that represents Sabah which is well-known for its beautiful beaches and islands.

On top of this, you will notice that the design at Jojo Gastrobar closely resembles the shape of Mount Kinabalu and it is connected to this staircase creating the effect of flow from the top to the bottom, representing the beautiful nature in the rainforest park.
