D’Place previously located at Kepayan Perdana which is inconvenient for tourists and guests. They take the bold move to Plaza Shell which located at the center of Kota Kinabalu City.
The new D’Place Kinabalu at Plaza Shell offer much bigger space than the previous outlet. The previous outlet feel more “authentic” while the new outlet offer much more comfortable experience.
