Resort and holiday homes in Malaysia are increasingly attractive. Coral Bay @ Sutera is indeed a unique, investment-worthy oceanfront property. Such coveted sites in Kota Kinabalu are scarce hence luxury seafront properties in the city centre can command a greater value than other luxury properties in the city centre and its nearest suburbs. Moreover, the implementation of the Sabah Development Corridor, including the upcoming 2,325 km Pan-Borneo toll-free highway, which enhances connectivity between Sabah and Sarawak, will increase the city’s accessibility and further spur economic activities in the region. This will bring more upside to the property sector.

The rapid development of Kota Kinabalu has contributed to a change in lifestyle and economic growth, especially due to an influx of tourists and foreign investors, opening of tourism hotspots, increase in buying power in the area and development of new residential and commercial properties. Hence the growth of the city has attracted a good number of tourists and expats as well as local and foreign investors.

Coral Bay @ Sutera, developed by Singapore-listed developer GSH Corporation Limited, is truly an urban paradise for astute investors and owner occupiers. Its unique location and design offerings make a sound investment for home buyers.
