Stayed at the Rasa Ria for 9 Nights in October. Well, what can I say, I was completely blown away. The place is beautiful, the service absolutely first class and the staff are the nicest, happiest people I have every come across in a hotel - a genuine eager to please attitude. We upgraded to the Ocean Wing and were...

We arrived at the Rasa Ria for a 6 night stay in the evening and we had a very warm welcome from the reception staff. The hotel looked gorgeous on arrival. We upgraded to a sea view room from a rainforest for 75MYR per night. It was worth every penny as the view from our balcony was stunning. We stayed...

First off, be sure to get a room with an ocean view and on one of the higher floors. The sunset is beautiful. Okay, so here's a blow by blow. Logistics. We were there for a company retreat and the logistics team who met with us at the airport were quite good in managing all the different arrival times. No...

We stayed here for 14 nights in October 2014. I cannot priase this hotel highly enough. On arrival we were greeted by the sound of a gong and welcome music on traditional instruments, which is a traditional Malay welcome. This set the tone for our whole stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff of this hotel who work...

Amazing resort. The welcome was exceptional, the room lovely and the quality/choice of restaurants was impressive. The Coffee Terrace (buffet) was very busy at both breakfast and dinner with lots of families dining - we ordered a la carte, but our order was forgotten about so we waited over an hour for two simple main courses, but the mistake was...

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
