Spent a lovely two weeks on honeymoon only to have it ruined by shangrila refusing to add the points accumulated during our honeymoon onto our card. Something to do with the reward card being in my husband's name but the booking was under mine. Ridiculous.Beware.

Upgraded to Ocean Wing - well worth it for the few nights we stayed. Pool quieter and the room was fantastic - beautiful balcony with double bath overlooking the sea. Staff were always helpful and smiling, always sorted out the problem. Toiletries good. Iron and board and hairdryer provided as expected. Laundry service excellent and prompt, also reasonably priced.

We experience a wonderful time from the date of our arrival to our departure. From the moment we arrived it feels like home everyone was so friendly and over helpful. We make beautiful friends with the staff and all of us were sad to say our good byes. We will definitely return.

There are several good quality dining options and we found the food to be terrific in all of them. The breakfast buffet was excellent, plenty of variety and...

Hotel rooms and facilities were very cozy, clean and very Shangrila. Staff are very nice and friendly. Food is a bit bland in taste. Great outdoor activities especially if you avail of the family fun package!

I was very relieved to reach the checkin desk, late at night after a flight and a drive through torrential rain. Driving here seemed to take forever with the heavy rains and my lack of familiarity with the place but as soon as you get to the facility the guard lifts the gate and you enter paradise. The evening sounds...

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
