Great facilities - kids loved the pool. Excellent service - receptionist went out of her way to organise the perfect family room for us. Isaac and Tracy were excellent and super accomodating for our needs by the pool.

We arrived at 3 at the hotel. The check-in time is 2. There was a long queue at the check-in. We waited 30mn standing to be told the room is not ready . The hotel is not full. Why can they not find a room? We are asked to wait in the lounge. They give us a drink and a small snack. We waited and wasted time instead of enjoying the facilities. Finally (4 pm)we got a room.
After that, everything was perfect. The staff is excellent. The breakfast very good, the room also very good.
If the Check-in could sort out their issue I would give the hotel 5 stars.

Went there during CMCO, it’s quiet and have limited activities that’s probably because of the SOP/pandemic, understandable. Breakfast is average. I must say they have the finest staffs(ALL of ‘em even their security guards) appreciate their hard work! Overall it was a great stay.

The scenery was beautiful, the place was far from the city and it was so quite and calm. Not so many people around.

Main activity more to sight seeing.

Try to avoid the use of swimming pool by booking the room with big bath tub at the balcony.

Food is average and pricey.

Celebrated me and my son's birthday here at Rasa Ria for a family stay cation. They made Minecraft and Unicorn decoration in the room and birthday cake for us! We had really fun horse riding and great family time in this paradise. Such a beautiful resort with so much activities. Their buffet dinner was EXCELLENT. The pannacotta and creme brulee are the best we ever had! Both me and my son had 3 each for the pannacotta! Thank you so much Rasa Ria for the wonderful holiday and the pastries are the best!!

There is a saying in China about traveling makes you into a story teller and this hotel is a story worth telling. It is set in acres of land with a beach 3 miles long where you can take part in water sports. My husband decided that at our age sitting around one of the two pools was just our cup of tea. If you are more active then there is a lot to do they even have their own bike trails.
We did venture up through the jungle to see the sun rise over the tallest mountain in Malaysia (mount Kinabalu). I must thank my family and a ranger Tim for helping me down. There are many trails that you can take and the rangers are there to help you. When the sun came up over the Mountain it looked like the sky was on fire, we had a fruit breakfast but made a quick get away when a troupe of monkeys came and joined us.
The hotel is worth it’s 5 stars. The rooms are spacious, clean and decorative and the food was various and of a very high standard, we ate in all 6 restaurants and all were our favourite.
If you want to get away from the maddening crowd then this is the best place to stay, but for all the beauty all around the greatest part of the hotel are the staff. Words can not explain how fantastic they are, every one is a gem, many have worked there for many years and they had me in tears when they sang to us as we left.

The Rasa Ria Reserve is a beautiful area bordering the Shangri-la Rasa Ria. It is a magnificent back drop to the hotel and offers visitors an opportunity to hike and learn about the local plants and animals that live in the jungle nearby. There are guides from the hotel to offer a various package of interesting walks and hikes. This should not be undertaken alone as there are numerous unique plants in the jungle and frankly, without a guide, you could get into some trouble. It is very safe with the guides and they are very knowledgeable. Well worth the look and exploration.
