Excellent hotel for golfing holidays. Have been there for one week sharing our time with children between swimming pool and golf (and Spa-:) Good place to go with children, be careful to chose the ocean wing (the other one is really less exclusive) not a good beach spot for swimming (only for view)

Pros: - excellent service. We are greeted by superbly helpful staff at reception. After we check in, we asked for an ashtray and it was delivered in a speedy reaction! - Good breakfast. I won't say it is the best but it comes with a wide variety of choices. The egg station is especially good, the cook fried the eggs...

Everything perfect. No complain at all. Shang's staff are nice, informative and kind (They are not only from locals but also from other country's) *Liked*. Location is a bit far from town area but I prefer due to away from noise pollution.

This is the way to experience "Borneo light". A five star experience with the icing on the cake being the resort Urangutans. Our kids had an amazing time as park rangers. The hotel grounds are beautiful, and we enjoyed lovely walks around the golf course. If you're lucky, you will see all sorts of wildlife ranging from giant monitor lizards...

We went to Rasa Ria as a last minute getaway over a long weekend. We were surprised how much fun we had. The beach is enormous, with soft white sand - but watch out for the jellyfish, our 4 year old was stung! The kids had a great time at the pool, feeding the goats and seeing the orang utans....

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
