I would say this is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. I guess that rather days it all! The attached Orangoutang reserve is also very special. Very professional and only a short walk from the hotel itself. Don't miss the roti canai at breakfast as good as on the street.

This place is gorgeous! Just a shortish taxi ride from KK and you arrive in another world. From the moment you enter you are made to feel special. Music played to welcome you through the entrance - reception comes to you whilst you relax with complimentary welcome drink in hand. All very chilled and civilised. And then you are taken...

A great beginning to the honeymoon. We stayed in the Ocean Wing with our own balcony bath overlooking the sea with the sound of the waves. The room was luxurious and spacious. The highlights were the big jacuzzi with ocean sunset views for Ocean Wing guests only, the breakfasts in the Ocean Wing restaurant, the free use of the tennis...

Rasa Ria is a brilliant resort with everything you could want or need in a location like this. Restaurants are great (although probably a little more choice would be good if you were there for any length of time). Beds were so so comfortable and the rooms were a great size with a great bathroom. Hairdryer was a bit disappointing...

The most amazing hotel I have ever stayed at. Has everything you need. Plenty of activities and food options. Orangutan sanctuary was amazing. Doesn't feel crowded at all even though it's a large hotel

This hotel is simply perfect if you want a place with great rooms, impeccable service, great view, great pool, fabulous beach, and tons and tons of activities within and outside the hotel. The hotel is excellent at organizing activities, including those supplied by third parties. Activities include a wide range from wildlife to water sports to good old chess. I...

Very average hotel, the staff are good, attentive, did not have any problems...A couple of points: the hotel is very isolated, so you may be limited to the restaurants on site which, we thought were very overpriced for the quality of food offered. Very limited selection of choices for lunch.. You may order from the menu to your room, or...

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
