We spent 5nights here as part of our honeymoon and the amazing service shone through right from our arrival. The welcome gong and drinks make you feel very special, and part of the shangri la family right from the off.

Overview Getting to the Rasa Ria resort from the hotel is about 90 ringgit but we opted for the hotel's 6-seater van as we had a 5-year old and 1-year old child with us. I'm glad we did because we asked for, and got a car seat in which to take the little one. Warning - it IS a 40-45...

They strike the perfect balance, offering guests the ultimate luxury stay, yet the feeling of being close to nature. Staying in luxury resorts is never helping your environmental footprint, but at RasaRia, they have taken sustainability and the local environment into consideration at creation. I appreciated that and the beautiful rooms plus surroundings!

My family ( 2 adults and 2 kids under 5) stayed here over Easter in a garden view room. The room was nice and the sofa bed was perfect size for 2 small ones. Nice bathroom, although no bath tub.

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
