This hotel is about 40+ mins away from the airport and the main city center. Come here if you are planning on using all their amenities as you have a private beach, pool w waterslide, a few restaurants, and spa. The best part is they have the orangatang sanctuary for you to visit and see these creatures up close. They...

Tranquil and quiet place for retreat and rest without noises. Variety choices of food in the resort ( though price is high ) if do not wish to go outside for food. Best is the sun set in the evening over the beach. It is a remote resort - definitely nothing else nearby without transport.

This is a great hotel. The rooms are very comfortable with all you would expect. Beautiful grounds, swimming pool and beach. However it is a long way from anywhere so the hotel really has a captive audience. This is a holiday hotel and therefore it gets a bit expensive after a week or two eating and drinking on site.

Restaurants are fantastic, day spa is beautiful and the ladies there are very professional. Activities are excellent, and the pool is great.

We stayed here for a week but wish we'd been staying much longer! What a fantastic place! Absolutely idyllic setting and superb service from the very courteous and friendly staff (every one, from the gardener to the F/B director) made it a wonderful experience. We stayed in the ocean wing so we had the private pool area which was amazing...

I went to KK for 5 days and 4 nights and stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. It was really good. On the second day, we found that the shower had a drainage problem, and the water kind of got stuck there. So, a guy came up to our room and fixed the problem. Later on, we found that...

We didn't stay here, but attended the orangutan sanctuary - better than sepilok, as in they were playing in the jungle and less crowded. Orangutans looked healthy and happy, great photo opportunity. At the resort we had a lovely lunch and swim in the pool, this was a great day to unwind from the Mt Kinabalu climb

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
