Stayed for 3 nights, family, all adults; the resort and immediate grounds are quite wonderful; rooms are large, with outside tubs on the covered porch (Ocean Wing); the controls for all the lights are a bit confusing and the door to the bathroom has a glass window, so light gets through to the bedroom if your sleeping mate has to...

Rarely do I give 5* but this place is just amazing. You can read the reviews below about the amenities etc but the team at the Rasa Ria are just brilliant. They really do go that extra little bit and are so friendly. I've not stayed in a Shangri-La before but certainly will try to again if this is anything... More

We spent four nights in the Ocean Wing of Shangri-la rasa ria. Wonderful place, lovely staff. We were welcomed at the airport by uniformed staff from the hotel, and driven to the Ocean Wing lobby where we were guided through check in by a delightful lady who was helpful and attentive. Our room was large and beautifully arranged, with fresh... More

Stayed for six days with family (2 adults and 2 kids). Great facilities, nice atmosphere, though somewhat pricey. We where offered upgrade from garden wing to ocean wing at campaign price, but chose not to, and have been ok happy with that, as the garden wing rooms can hold us with an extra bed for the kids (6&8 years) Overall,...

Loved this place, the staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room was fabulous, every possible accessory was provided. Lovely circular day bed and bath were on our ocean view terrace where we enjoyed lovely sunsets. Pool area was a delight.

Terrific stay starting from the welcome drink. We have a 7and 5 year old who shared a day bed in our room which was split level so felt a little separated. Bonus. We stayed 2 weeks and although disappointed with how isolated it was , there was plenty of choice restaurant wise. The children were entertained at the pool especially... More

Upon arrival, we were welcomed with the traditional gong, a cool drink and smiles from the friendly reception staff. We were upgraded to the Ocean Wing, which gave our family of six room to spread out and access to all areas of the resort. The rooms were spacious and luxurious. We enjoyed a spa on our private balcony and fresh... More

Phew. A hard place to review. So many things are nice. The swimming pool, the grounds, the jungle right-beside, the views, the breakfast, its feel of relaxed spaciousness. All great. The kids loved the KidsClub, which made the stay enjoyable for the parents. A good choice of eating places, Western, Japanese, Indian, local. Pity that it is not convenient to... More

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
