The staff made this holiday for me, also the beautiful gardens, the infinity pool, the comfortable room with balcony, the sunsets,. the beautiful food. I am disabled and this is a very easy to get around property - lifts, ramps, helpful people, lifevests for the walk in pool. You couldn't not enjoy yourself.

Another fantastic Shangri la hotel, room overlooking the ocean, great food, great staff, by the second day the door staff were calling me by name (very James Bond like). One of the best sunsets in the world. Went to the other Shang to see the Orang Utans on the hotels own reserve ( easier than going to Sepilok. Thanks again... More

like the fact that the hotel would lay out slippers and a mat on the side of your bed plus an orchid when I retire to the room in the evening. One thing that is disappointing is since the room i am staying in provides a hd tv. i hope some of the channels have hd quality too.

You always know when the staff enjoy their job. They look after their guests. You get the feeling the staff get looked after by the company. It is nice to see the orang-utan sanctuary and the work that the hotel put into the project. Would love to go back there again.

A large resort on the beach. We upgraded to the club and were very pleased with our decision. The hotel is very busy with many families so a little difficult as a couple to have some quiet time. The pool area is great for children but although one area is set aside for adults there are insufficient lounges and shaded... More

We had booked 6 nights in this hotel last month. We arrived very late and were aghast when shown to the club room. The whole room smelled of dampness. The bathroom and basin had dark mould. The shower head was partly broken. The doors has handprints of people. We decided to check out in the morning and move to Rasa... More

Top spot. Great service, food, pool, hospitality, stayed 11 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Room very spacious, spotlessly clean. Top Italian restaurant. Big thanks to Tracy at Holidays for you. Will definitely be back.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff of Shangri-La Tanjung Aru for helping my fiancé and I celebrate our engagement in such special surroundings. Mr Andrew Casci, Director of Recreation was my point of contact. He was exceptional. I met him by the pool one afternoon during our week-long stay. I asked him for some privacy... More

This is a great resort but was very busy for a 2 day stay. The sunsets were fantastic at the sunset bar which was the highlight. We were in a family group and it was difficult to get a table for 6 at breakfast although on second day we found an overflow breakfast in the Chinese rest. Staff are very... More
