This hotel is fabulous and delivers all it promises. The complex has all the facilities you could ask for and is luxurious throughout. The superior Garden Room we had (which had great sea views !) was spacious and well appointed with the best pillows I have ever found. Service is second to none. There must be as many staff as...

If you just want a resort to unpack and not move this is it! The kids club and the pool make your stay with young ones a breeze. We have visited this hotel twice in two years. The Ocean wing is worth the cost as the breakfast at the coast is way more relaxing in the morning. The other breakfast... More

This resort is amazing. This hotel has everything for couples and families with young or older children. We went as a large group with 7 adults and 6 kids and had a ball. The kids had so much to do and ran out of time to do it all. The grounds are superb and there are plenty of spots for... More

This was our last stop of our holiday, after being in the hustling, bustling cities of Singapore and Hong Kong. This resort was amazing! Standing on the beach in the evening is so peaceful. There is a huge area to walk along the beach and take it all in. We got involved in playing beach volleyball with some of the... More

What a wonderful resort and hotel. My wife and I had a short-notice weekend visit and stayed at the Ocean Wing. We had a beautiful room with a great sea view. The staff were excellent throughout - very friendly and helpful. We ate at the Coast Restaurant on all three nights. The food quality was excellent. If we had stayed... More

Great for family holiday. Not having the time to go to Sepilok we satisfied our stay at this resort with watching the baby orang-utans. I went into the forest twice a day to watch them. Groups on my 4 days varied greatly in numbers from full to only a handful. I watched the babies antics with fascination. Wish I had... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort is set on Pantai Dalit beach surrounded by 400 acres of lush tropical vegetation, including a unique nature reserve. Here you'll meet Sabah's icon, the fascinating Orang Utan, as well as a remarkable array of indigenous flora and fauna. Unexpected encounters with hornbills who glide right overhead, peacocks walking by 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 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, ATV safaris, tennis, horse riding, a fitness centre and, of course, a fun-filled Kids' Club to care for younger visitors. ... more   less
