I chose this resort based on thousands of great reviews. I was not disappointed. Our interconnecting garden rooms were large, spacious and with their own lounge area. The kids room had single beds and a bath/shower and the adjoining room had a king bed and shower. We had a minor problem with one TV, and that was fixed straight away...

High quality hotel set in beautiful grounds. Beach was a highlight for me. The sanctuary on site was great. Lovely food. Accommodating and pleasant staff. Personally wasn't keen on the overly-cautious lifeguards on the beach (paddling knee-high 2 metres from the designated swim zone resulted in furious whistles!), but that only ruined my beach time and certainly not the trip....

Amazing place for families with so many activities and choice of food. Wonderful manicured gardens. Quite luxurious. Loved the happy hour watching the sun set. Food was fabulous although slightly expensive. Staff were very attentive and helpful.

We stayed at the Rasa Ria for 5 nights. We chose the premium Ocean rooms in the ocean wing. These rooms are very spacious and also have large outdoor baths on the balconys which overlook both the amazingly huge pool and out to the ocean. Our stay was lovely and relaxing and just perfect for the break between adventures. The...

Nice welcoming lounge area upon arrival with some light xylophone music that sets a nice tone to start. Unusual deposit system that wasn't explained very well in the beginning - it's not a bond, but they try and get you to pay in advance what you may spend and they recommend 4000 RM, which we thought was ludicrous, so didn't...

My friend and I spent 6 nights relaxing at the Shangri La after an initial week of treks, sightseeing, and many adventures in the rainforest. It was the perfect way to end our holiday.

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
