The whole place is so close to being perfection but let down by the attention to detail at Coast Restaurant and the Terrace Cafe. We were originally staying in the Garden Wing as our travel agent wouldn't let us book the Ocean Wing due to the extension but having spoken with family and friends who had stopped in the Ocean...

We stayed this hotel 2 weeks in summer. We enjoyed playing at pool and beach very much. If anything, breakfast in the restaurant was too busy and crowded. Anyhow it is nice hotel for English speakers.

Stayed at Rasa Ria for 10 days for our 10th wedding anniversary. The staff were amazingly helpful and the resort - even though there was some building works happening at the time - was quiet and very well kept. The rooms were clean and spacious and very well appointed. The dining options were great and the bars we well serviced...

In July 2014 our family (2 adults, 8yr old and 5 year old) stayed 10 nights at the Shangri la Rasa Ria. This was our second family holiday at a Shangri la Resort having visited the Fijian resort in 2012. We selected the Garden wing as a majority of our time would be spent around the childrens pool and water...

We had previously visited in 2009 when the Ocean Wing was newly opened and were eagerly looking forward to our long weekend recently as we had enjoyed our first visit so much. All the staff were very friendly and eager to please but overall the service was slow and disjointed this time. In the rooms the lovely L'Occitane products have...

Stayed for one week at end of July. I think this hotel either excels or frustrates depending on your expectations of a resort hotel. My kids would give a five star review.

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
