I stay 4 night on this hotel, staffs are friendly and helpful, room is clean and smell fresh, pools are nice. The only bad side is the beach, there are a lot of jelly fish in beach not recommend to swim on the sea.

Dear NelsonLiao1986, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We regret about the jellyfish putting a damper to your stay with us. It is not a normal occurrence and only happens during certain times. However, we are glad that you enjoyed the resort overall. We do hope that you would visit us again soon.

We stayed at the resort with a Luxury Escapes voucher,and we upgraded to a suite on the top floor when it became available the second night of our stay. It was well worth it because of the extra space and sweeping views of the sea and swimming pools. We enjoyed the meals at the Italian and Indian restaurants. What really...

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of our 2.5 week trip to Borneo. We upgraded to the Ocean Wing which was well worth it. The breakfast was the best I have ever seen and the pool area was generally very peaceful. However there were still a LOT of families with children so at times...

Very good hotel. Location perfect but far away from everything. Jellyfish in water for my whole stay (6days). There is a tractor moving on the beach every day from 6-10am and 5-7pm. This is a joke! We could not use the sea because of jellyfish. There is a simple solution to have a closed area... the beach shall be cleaner...

This resort is extremely well-run. The rooms on the Garden side are large, clean and well-appointed. The lobby in spacious and check-in easy.

Just come back from 2 weeks at this resort, from the moment we stepped out of the taxi until the moment we departed everything was just perfect, our room, the food, the gardens,but most of all the staff, they have warm genuine smiles all day every day, nothing is too much trouble. We are already planning our return.

We booked through Premier Holidays. We are a family of four with a 17 year old. Could not fault the hotel. We had two rooms in the garden area which had an interconnecting door so lots of space. Rooms were modern with sofas, power shower and lovely beds. Resort was so clean. BRILLIANT IF YOU NEED A GLUTEN FREE DIET?...

This place was paradise for us. The staff make it an exceptional retreat and go above and beyond. The Ocean Wing rooms are great with the perk of having an oversized bath tub on the balcony. The room is very large and the added touches of fruit each day, a scent menu and short stories on the pillow is nice....

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
