As a Malaysian who have lived in Melbourne for over 15 years, I was very excited to travel to East Malaysia for the first time in my entire life; particularly special as I got to do this with my best friend from primary school! This resort is stunningly beautiful with a magnificent beach to match. Their service is all class,... More

After the rainforest and before climbing MT Kinabalu we needed some luxury and this hotel more than met the needs. Ocean wing rooms are without doubt worth the extra cost and the benefits are plentiful with the usual "club" benefits. HOWEVER our check in experience was dreadful with the hotel having made a mistake in our booking and only had... More

We could not have asked for more! The resort is well laid out with an expanse of beach tended to daily. Sunsets to die for but seen only from the Beach bar at the time of year we were there...but with the added benefit of happy hour.

This hotel is in a beautiful location, amenities are all fantastic & there's heaps to do. Especially great was the little orangutan habitat, so if you didn't want to travel you still got to see what Sabah/Borneo is famous for.

My wife and I spent a week in the Ocean Wing at the beginning of November. What a wonderful place, well worth the long travel from Scotland. Genuinely friendly staff, nothing too much trouble for them. Large, comfortable room, large balcony, fine vew of garden and beach. Very good food, wide selection. Very strongly recommended.

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
