Myself and a friend came to Rasa Ria for her 50th Birthday as it was a lifetime dream for both of us to see the orang-utans in their natural environment and what a way to see that. The hotel is so clean and the staff always acknowledge you politely, and the rooms are replenished every day. The restaurants offer a...

The customer service was excellence, however; there were Mosquitos in our room which spoiled my sleep. However, I love the fact that I could hear hundred of birds sing in the morning and in the evening. The sun set bar was awesome too. The food at the buffet was so so. It is a very well done hotel but could...

due to the location is far away from town, even though they provide shuttle service to go to the town, but still very expensive, better to have a car hire instead, and most of the hotel option tour is far more expensive than other places.

We arrived to the sound of Borneo and welcomed like lost family. We had the Executive sea view room in garden wing and was lovely. Busy around pool. Food was excellent. Had a wonderful time and saw orang utans too!

We were not disappointed with this hotel. Trail Finders were the agents who booked this for us. After an exciting three day stay in Singapore this hotel provided us with an excellent base for relaxation and exploration. The welcome we received was friendly and in true Malaysian style. The room was very well appointed, comfortable and cool. A very nice...

Fantastic hotel and facilities. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Beach so clean and tidy, water so, so warm. Pool, beds, towels, etc were spot on. Free iced chilled water saved a fortune on the bar bill. Staff handing out free slices of melon was an extra touch. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Can't fault this hotel at all. Food...

We stayed here 5 years ago and it has particularly special memories for us, so we were looking forward to staying again,but also unsure that it could be as good as it was last time, but we once again had a wonderful time. We had requested the same room as before, which the hotel had told us they couldn't guarantee...

Everything about this place was perfect. Very relaxing resort with beach and pool right on your doorstep. The staff were so polite, welcoming and the extra touches the Rasa Ria includes makes your stay perfect. Great place and I will return.

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
