The food was exceptionally good, the indian NAAN restaurant was also amazing, the chef at the hotel made special arrangements to meet us on...

From check in to check out outstanding service and an outstanding hotel. Upgraded to ocean wing costs about £75 English pounds per room. Had 5th floor amazing views. Pool area and breakfast much quieter than garden wing. Staff are a credit to the brand name and themselves. The gym was good and Jonny the gym man deserves a special mention....

We visited in Oct 2013 and I'm so sad to hear the Orangutan part is closed. We had such a fantastic trip, we went on Segways, horse riding along the beach, the night walk was one of the most scary things I'd ever done as I'm petrified of spiders, we saw all sorts tarantula, snakes a bear cat! Food was...

If you like this kind of resort you couldn't be disatisfied. service is excellent.

I have read some bad feedbacks about the fact...

Perfect for a honeymoon or for relaxing after some wildlife adventures on Borneo. We traveled with Borneo eco tours throughout Sabah and were ready for some luxury relaxation once we reached the Rasa Ria. The restaurants can get a little hectic of an evening, so we used the room service mostly and our stay was fantastic. Friendly staff and excellent...

Our room was located at a beautiful, natural overlook out to the sea, where we could observe tropical plants, and wildlife running the interior grounds, such as monitor lizards and beautiful birds. During the day we had a choice of swimming in the warm ocean, or playing at the gorges water park they had. There is a beautiful kids club...

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
