I was very relieved to reach the checkin desk, late at night after a flight and a drive through torrential rain. Driving here seemed to take forever with the heavy rains and my lack of familiarity with the place but as soon as you get to the facility the guard lifts the gate and you enter paradise. The evening sounds...

We stayed at the Rasa Ria for twelve nights in may , and have just returned home having had an amazing holiday. We were very lucky with the weather, mostly sunny and dry and very warm. We cannot fault the hotel, the staff were cheerful and friendly all the time, especially Samuel and the team at the Sampan Bar, the...

I stayed at the Ocean Wing earlier in May 2017. Apparently upon checking-out, I had forgotten in the room a folder containing some highly important documents of mine. As I had to travel abroad the next following day, I had communicated with Bethanie, the Manager on my concern. She had gone out of her way to check and profusely ensured...

My partner and I booked to stay here, after a week visiting various locations in the rain forest, as a relaxing end to our trip. Well.... I can honestly say that this hotel exceeded expectations. We received a very warm welcome on arrival and this warmth and friendliness continued throughout our stay serving to enhance our holiday experience. There is...

Ocean wing rooms are decent 5 star, very comfortable beds. Balcony views of spectacular sunsets are memorable. The pools are incredibly warm and food in all the restaurants will not disappoint even the fussiest of palattes. All restautantd are of a very good standard. Upstairs lounge bar for cocktails and good music are a must. Cocktails are pretty well mixed...

Wow! What a resort. So much going on and things to do around the resort, with direct access on to the beach, with water sports available. Room was lovely and comfortable, with a balcony that we could sit on and enjoy at any time of day. Staff helpful and friendly, and even sung us a song when we left! Only...

I enjoyed my stay in this hotel during a business conference. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom and vanity areas are ideal. The food choices were a bit limited but should be ok for a few days stay. I also enjoyed the pool facilities.

This place is absolutely amazing, we had club room, it was fairly large, had separate eating place as well as separate pool, also it seems we were there in low season so the place wasn't crowded at all. Staff was very friendly and overall we were very happy with our stay. We rented a car so the fact that it...

We arrived here late in the evening and after reading rave reviews about the Ocean wing were going to ask to upgrade. Due to a large company gathering over several days, there would have only been 2 days out of our 7 to use the Ocean wing so decided to stay in the garden wing and upgraded to the seaview....

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
