The Elopura Hotel


Elopura was the first name of Sandakan when it was founded by William B Pryer in 1879. The British North Borneo Company named it Elopura, meaning:  “Beautiful Town”.

Our location comes with a glorious view of the Sulu Sea alongside the bay. The Elopura Hotel offers a sublime slice of modern local ambience and movie-themed concepts. You'll love our movie-poster-filled corridors and historic decorative films and music memorabilia.

Conveniently located at the heart of the city, visitors will have easy access to the vibrant local culture while enjoying their stay.
