Rasa Ria Wedding


I am getting married next year in Borneo and we are thinking of having it at Rasa Ria. Just wondering if anyone has any experience of a wedding there, anything to look out for?

We are may be having a beach bbq in the evening and have been told that sand flies may be a problem?

Any advice would be very welcome!

Hi Kate83,

Congrates on your upcoming wedding! =)

I have not have my own wedding in Rasa Ria but as a wedding planner, so far i have only received good comments from my clients. They do organise beach wedding beautifully at Rasa Ria. No worries.

As for the sand flies, it is seasonal. Depends what month do you plan to have your wedding here.

Do have a beautiful wedding in Sabah! Cheers! =)

I attended a wedding there last year setup according to what you're looking for.

It was a beautiful ceremony on the beach amongst burning laterns, the smell of BBQ and all on the beach from a Gazebo there set towards the side just a few stumbles away from the restaurant there.

The entire setup was on the sand, and although the DJ had the Gazebo to his disposal for the dancing afterwards, people were dancing in the sand and there were a couple of drinking related activities in the sand as well. I'm usually a nice snack for sandflies, but wasn't bothered by them. I think they either treat the sand, or rake it regularly which takes care of that.

It's a great venue for a memorable wedding, and Sabah's sunsets will provide you with a magnificent backdrop every time.

You can contact the Rasa Ria for your wedding on rrr@shangri-la.com and they'll give you options and quotes for your wedding.

Congrats, and good luck.
