Suria Sabah is a shopping paradise with 70 per cent of the retail space allocated for fashion and consumer durables, while the balance is for food and beverage as well as entertainment.

Suria Sabah is attached with a 5-star hotel. The mall start with basement, ground floor, 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor. 4th and 5th served as car park area. This is a high class shopping mall like 1-Borneo. It will be the second best shopping mall in KK.
Suria Sabah is second part of Suria Company's project to turn Kota Kinabalu seaside into tourist waterfront. The first part is the completed Jesselton Point.
Suriah Sabah is a modern development in the older part of Kota Kinabalu city centre. As a result of this catalyst for revival/redevelopment, the surround old buildings will also be upgraded. Such building as the adjacent Gaya Centre which has a plan to be converted into a hotel.

This city center is still rapidly growing and evolving with newer buildings and hotels. As our honorable Mayor, Datuk Abidin Madingkir once complimented that Suria Sabah which came into Kota Kinabalu city center picture 6 years ago as timely, in tandem with Kota Kinabalu city center’s rapid progress, and is just what Kota Kinabalu city needs to serve the city dwellers, outstation Sabahan and tourists alike. We are honored that our Lord Mayor further commented that Suria Sabah is Kota Kinabalu’s landmark Shopping Mall.
On top of the above, Kota Kinabalu is positioned as the hub of Borneo (even surpassing Brunei and Miri), much like Kuala Lumpur’s as the hub of West Malaysia.
This means that it receives a lot of outstation tourists’ shopping receipts from Brunei, Miri, and smaller towns such as Sandakan, Tawau, Kudat, Lahad Datu, Marudu…

Since Suria Sabah is located in between the islands and the main city stretch where most hotels are located, many of these tourists walk through Suria Sabah mall on a daily basis.

In the basement is where you’ll find most of Suria Sabah’s fast food restaurants and “sushi corner”, with 3 Japanese restaurants within sight of each other. There’s a Thai and Italian restaurant on the one of the 3rd floor, and a food court on the other end of the same floor and few kiosks and misc food shops scattered on the floors in between.

Metro Jaya is Suria’s anchor tenant, spanning several floors it sells the usual department store offerings like perfume, clothes, shoes, luggage and household items. Numerous other shops sell either beauty products or clothing and are randomly dotted throughout the mall.

Suria Sabah Shopping Mall is making a push to rob Karamunsing of their “Best for IT” title, but although there are many gadget shops already, the quality and variety is still lagging behind Karamunsing.

The Times bookstore is not to be forgotten, nor is GSC Cinemas, which significantly boosted the visitor numbers at the mall.

When it opened a couple of years after 1Borneo, GSC Suria brought 8 new screens to Kota Kinabalu’s city centre and now feature two 3D ready cinemas at this complex alone.

Suria Sabah has plenty of parking, and now that 2 exits with several gates each are frequently operational, combined with automated ticketing machines, the dreaded traffic crawl has been reduced.
