Enjoyed very much. Location great. Suggest no charge for shuttle bus to city. Golf course glorious. Beautiful views of Mt Kinabalu. Indian restaurant definitely the best. Italian only average. Could not get into Japanese at time desired, last night there. Breakfast delicious. Especially the fresh fruit juices.

The ocean wing lifeguard was rude, came up to us while we were sitting at the pool lounge to say that outsiders are not supposed to sit there. We were shocked! As we were in house guest and we just had our lovely breakfast. It was such a spoiler for the day. He shouldve asked us politely first. Other than...

We stayed at the Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa and it was a wonderful experience from the views from our room and the sunsets at the bar to the really excellent staff all over the hotel which made our stay so lovely .

We have just stayed at the Rasa Ria Resort in Kota Kinabalu for Easter and it was brilliant. The kids club was perfect for the kids (9 and 11) and lying by the pool is sensational for the adults. The Ocean Wing rooms are a MUST ! The afternoon canapés and drinks were a nice way to end the afternoon....

Spent just under 2 weeks here with the family - booked through Kuoni. It's very good. The only downsides is are the number of younger kids (it was Easter) - often Asian and without any obvious supervision (especially in the buffet restaurant) and the mossies after dark. Many of the restaurants are very good - I'd steer clear of the...

This hotel has a lot going for it. The location is 30 to 40 minutes from Kota Kinabalu. The grounds and buildings are well maintained, the pools are clean and have plenty of good quality sunbeds. You can try your hand at various water sports or play golf on the excellent course. There is a variety of dining options. The...

Returned 7 years on as part of a tour of Malaysia. This hotel has the most fabulous beach and outlook as well exceptional service. Stayed again in the Garden Wing at the end of the wing, ground floor, which was ideal for easy access to the grounds, beach and restaurants.

We spent 8 fantastic days from the 1st of April at the Rasa Ria resort and the highlight of our stay has to be the staff. They couldn't do enough for you and by far the friendliest I have encountered in many years. We stayed in the Garden wing with an Ocean view and the room was excellent, staying on...

I stayed 5 nights with my two young kids and my parents - we love it. I definitely recommend spending a little extra for the ocean rooms - they are beautiful. However, if you have older kids ie 6 plus it probably isn't worth the extra spend as they will want to spend the whole time in the pools with...

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
