ROOFTOP POOLSIDE BAR & GRILL, Hilton Kota Kinabalu
Hilton Kota Kinabalu is almost hitting its 2-year anniversary since their official launching in March 2017. What some people may not know is that the poolside bar is actually its rooftop bar as well! Enjoy the view of the sea while sipping on wine and savoring a wide selection of seafood.
Fiv5 Bar, Hotel No 5
Catch the sunset while watching the lights of the city lit up at the rooftop bar of Hotel No 5.

Watch the traffic of the city zooming past you while you’re up there sipping on your favorite cocktail or beer.
Azure Pool Bar & Cafe, Le Meridien
Though this may not be at the rooftop of the hotel, it is still one of the top bars with a view to die for. It has one of the closest views of the South China Sea viewed from the higher ground. Watch the hustle and bustle of the busy city while the majestic pink sunset happens in front of you. Savor the delicious food and have a pint of cold beer while you watch the sunset.
