This was our first stay at a Shangri LA and it was fantastic! Upon arrival we were upgraded to a ocean facing ground floor room with a terrace. The public facilities like the pool area and restaurants are amazing. In the rooms you can notice though that this is not a new hotel. Staff is very attentive and helpful. Even...

We spent 4 nights at Rasa Ria over CNY and had a wonderful time. We booked the Ocean Wing to get a more secluded experience and it did not disappoint. Surprisingly we spent so little time in the room because the pool/beach area was so great, but it was still nice to have the huge room and oversized balcony/bath tub....

Just back from the Rasa Ria and it didn't disappoint Outstanding service and location, views to die for and food made in heaven....Can't wait to return and experience the parts of the resort we didn't get a chance to use. The golf club restaurant was an added bonus set in lush gardens of its own.

Been here a week now with my wife so this is a fresh review! The resort is beautiful, set on the shores of the south China Sea. When you're from Yorkshire this is as exotic as it gets. A wide sandy beach, lots of (available) loungers, some with shade some not, beach games, watersports (extra cost) nature reserve, golf, spa,...

We stayed here for a couple of nights in an Ocean Wing Premier Room and we were really impressed. The hotel has a huge beach area and a great pool, with very attentive staff. The breakfast variety was huge and the Japanese restaurant was great fun. The massages in the spa were probably the best we had during our whole...

Had a week here in January, nice resort, pool and facilities, felt a little small (our favourite is the Rasa Ria in Borneo). Food was excellent, nice to be able to walk into Batu Ferrenghi. Free bus into Georgetown which had great heritage and good shopping.

This hotel has two wings, The Garden Wing and Ocean Wing. We were booked into the garden wing, and on arrival were offered accommodation in the more expensive Ocean wing at a promotional rate, this we duly declind, as we felt this was an attempt to persuade us to part with more money. That said, the accommodation we had in...

We spend 5 nights here and were WOWED by the welcome and the reception staff. The lobby area is quite impressive and they bong and play instruments every time somebody arrives. When we arrived there were no rooms ready, so they showed us to a small buffet whilst we were waiting, which was a nice touch. Eventually they had a...

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
