Such a lovely place for holiday with friends. Beautiful view from the balcony. All the facilities are perfect. Very comfortable bed to sleep. The single bed can fit to 2 person I guess. The room seven service is excellent. The beach and swimming pool were awesome too. They provided sunscreen gel, aloe versa gel and towel. Overall the view here...

If you're looking for a romantic getaway, then don't go here! The resort is fantastic in terms of facilities, however, there are more families with small children/babies staying here than anything else. At times it seemed like there were more children here than adults! Most of the staff were very competent and helpful, however, there were a few occasions where...

The resort is set on a beautiful beach 45 minutes north of Kota Kinabalu. The surroundings are extremely beautiful, the white beach amazing and well kept and the small rainforest creates room for exiting activities for guests. I have seldom seen a sunset like the one we experienced our last night here. For a place like this I am willing...

This is a fab resort, happy family happy Dad. Is it perfect no. Do they need to do more yes. There are major holes like the lobby bar just seems to be a random after thought. There amount of "parent" or adult things seem poor, breakfast is like a holiday camp. However definitely one of the best family resorts in...

Beautiful Rooms in a splendid location about forty-five minutes by taxi from Kota Kinabalu airport; the perfect place to relax in a beautiful seaside location with a choice of several swimming pools, excellent service and good food to match in four restaurants. Despite the wide expanse of beach and ocean in front of the hotel, swimming is restricted to a...

We booked three days/nights at the Shangri-La Rasa Ria with the idea of having a luxurious treat to relax and recover from our climb up Mt. Kinabalu as a family.

A wonderful holiday for the whole family. We could not fault any of the staff who were simply superb; probably the best trained, attentive and genuinely friendly staff that we have encountered anywhere. The great variety of family friendly restaurants, together with the excellent "Coast" fine dining restaurant made for happy kids, parents and grandparents. We would have no hesitation...

As part of our honeymoon, we stopped at this resort for 5 nights which we chose mainly due to the Orang-utans Rehabilitation Centre. On arrival, we were impressed with the security and the drive up to the front entrance passing the Golf courses. The gong to mark our arrival made us feel special and the views from the lobby just...

First of all I know that it is no-ones fault if the weather is bad when you go away but still...3 nights here and it never stopped raining and there is nothing to do when the heavens open. Every single activity except board games is cancelled and the pool is closed, so disappointing. The resort itself is great, 5 different...

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
