We do not normally like large hotels but this was perfect. Fabulous location on stunning beach. Large sized comfy rooms. Gorgeous pool. 5 different restaurants to eat in and very charming and helpful staff. We went here after an exhausting wildlife tour and it was just the right sort of place for 4 nights r & r before coming home.

I have just left this resort and can honestly say it's fantastic. The staff are superb, friendly and very helpful. The fact that the baby orangutangs were within walking distance was a huge draw for me personally but the whole experience of the resort was great. I stayed in the ocean wing and see that some people asked to be...

This was our second visit to the Rasa Ria hotel after a six year absense and we had a great time. The property is well-managed and the staff are very customer focused. The hotel is popular though and as many of the Nature Reserve activities require bookings well in advance it is important to plan and book the first few...

This resort was fantastic, we could not of asked for anything more. The rooms were great, food was delicious, both pool and kids club excellent. My daughter aged 8 just absolutely loved the Ranger Program, she also loved the kids club. The staff are genuine, and make you feel very welcome, they also love kids.

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
