I have never visited Sabah despite having lived in Sarawak, Borneo for many years. When the opportunity arose from a special offer recommended by the Times, we decided to go. The hotel was one of the best I have stayed in and certainly deserves it's five stars. The staff were immediately welcoming and attentive on our arrival and throughout our...

What a fantastic holiday, our second visit in 4 years. We took the 14 day Ocean Wing package. From our speedy check in to our relaxed check out the staff could not do enough for you. We found all staff from Lobby, Food and Beverage, Pool and Cleaning staff, through to the staff at the Dalit Bay Spa and Golf...

Overall the resort is very well setup. Best features are the food and beverage outlets and the golf course in my opinion. All restaurants manage to maintain very diverse, yet authentic themes which I found quite pleasing. The breakfast is brilliant. Three spacing of the rooms are well thought out and overall service was fantastic. Can't wait to come back.

We stayed at the Garden Wing (Deluxe Sea View) and it's just heaven. You don't need to pay huge amount of money (for Ocean Wing) just to get great experience in this resort, Garden is enough. We had 4 rooms during our stay and ours (me and my husband only) is in twin bed room and the size is huge...

We stayed in the Ocean Wing for 9 nights with our 1.5 year old daughter. The staff were amazing with all three of us and the resort was extremely kid friendly. I give this resort a 10/10! Thank you so much for being amazing and I'm sure my daughter will miss Pongo a lot!!!!!!

Got picked up by a hotel taxi that had bottled water waiting for us and showed us the sights of kota Kinabalu on the way to the hotel(approx 1hour) check in was simple and personal, no waiting at a desk to get your room key! We were given a quick show around then personally shown to the room. The view...

"Hospitality & Customer Service" was way above my expectations. View from room balcony was superb. Rather one of the best "sun-set" that I observed at the hotel's own private beach plus smooth clam water and velvet white sand!!! Location was great with all amenities like pool, spa, kids and sports activities. I stayed there five days. Simply Awesome!!!

We booked a deal through Luxury Escapes which meant we were picked up at the airport. A great start to a brilliant week. The driver was lovely and chatty and we had a great conversation with him. He explained November was a quiet time since usually there was a lot of rain. We had perfect weather! Just two nights when...

Staying in the resort and enjoying many programs and (even preliminary) services would be better than any tours of Kota Kinabalu. In addition, I recommend to use the premier ocean wing room. Resort suggested many special supplymentary services and those were far over stage on the addtional charge. My couply with 9 year daughter are absolutely satistifed with staying there...

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
