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.

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...

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....

Upon arrival our room wasn't quite ready, but we were given food and drinks during this time (which was only 30 minutes)! The room in the Garden Wing was absolutely fine, having a lovely view of the sea. The staff here were always attentive and no request was ignored. Although the drinks were a little pricey when you realise that...

We had booked an ocean wing room but upon arrival to ocean wing check in we were taken to garden wing. Several members of staff assured us we were in the ocean wing when we questioned this and assured us our room would reflect this. Turns out a lot of staff at this hotel tell lies and are very fake....

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
