Shangri-La is always the best choice. Rasa Ria was also the best choice.The best place to enjoy the essence of Kota Kinabalu. I enjoyed having the best service. My family was also satisfied. I want to go again.

A pleasant stay here with families days ago. All the staffs are very friendly. The facilities and decorations are very good. The room service is very nice as well. All the food and drinks here are very good though there are not much Chinese style. Daughter likes so much that she wants to come again next time.

My wife and I stayed here for 9 days in January 17. Real touch of luxury and great relaxation. Lots of high class facilities with various different dining from curry to tepinyaka to local delicacies and a la cart dining. We opted for a ocean wing room. Although a bit more expensive it does have some exclusive services. Also with...

From the moment we arrived, through the gated entrance, we knew we were in for an amazing experience and that is exactly what we got. Everything is just superb. The pool, the staff, the ambience, the rooms and of course the cocktails are wonderful. It is a little way out from Kota but well worth the 40 minute taxi trip...

The staff is incredibly well trained, very welcoming and friendly, especially to our young daughters. A very relaxing and fun time was had by our family. Food was excellent in all the dining...

The staff at the Hotel are amazing, friendly and helpful, they are second to non. However, the Hotel is poorly managed, any complaints are ignored and no actions take place, the staff have to deal with the fall out. Be careful in booking any trips with the Hotel itself. There was building work taking place at all hours, even a...

Atmosphere at Rasa Ria could not be better. Our holiday began with a very helpful and knowledgeable driver who gave us lots of ideas to get the most of our time. Checking in very smooth even at 1am and all staff have been welcoming and friendly. Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Grounds have that 'cared for' look and plenty...

This has been a fantastic family holiday. The resort is 5 star & all the staff have been excellent. No matter what the enquiry - so helpful. You can do as little or as much as you please with the hotel activities & it was simple to organise other excursions. Must do Orangutan Tour in Sanakan - big day but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa is set on Pantai Dalit beach surrounded by 400 acres of lush tropical vegetation, including a unique nature reserve. Here you'll find a remarkable array of indigenous flora and fauna. Unexpected encounters with hornbills who glide right overhead during breakfast, a friendly bear cat greeting you from a tree or the occasional wild rabbit, iguana or squirrel crossing your path are all part of the magic of this remarkable resort. Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa goes beyond the offerings of Kota Kinabalu hotels by providing numerous options for relaxation. This includes the magnificent Spa at Dalit Bay, a wide range of water sports, Rasa Ria's own catamarans for cruises and deep sea fishing, a challenging 18-hole championship golf course, tennis, horse riding, a fitness centre and, of course, a fun-filled Kids' Club to care for younger visitors. ... more   less
