KOTA KINABALU: Sabah’s tourism sector will be given a boost when an integrated mixed-development called “The Peninsula” is completed in 2028, says its Chief Minister.

Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor launched the project, which is located on a 14.89-acre site in the city’s central business district, on Thursday (Feb 8).

The Peninsula would see the construction of service apartment blocks, premium residential towers, office blocks, shopping malls, a multi-storey car park, commercial suites, a four-star hotel, and a five-star hotel.

Hajiji said The Peninsula KK development augured well for the growing trend of the state's tourism industry, which recorded 2.6 million arrivals last year compared to 1.7 million in 2022.

With the ongoing development of other new hotels in various stages of completion, Sabah will see more than 3,000 available rooms.

This includes the Club Med in Kuala Penyu, Alila Resort in Tuaran, Intercontinental Hotels and Resorts in Papar, Avani Hotel, Crowne Plaza, Fairfield by Marriot and the Sheraton Hotel, all in Kota Kinabalu.

Presently, Sabah has a total of 26,822 hotel rooms available.
