Visiting Sabah at the end of August!

Me and my wife are visiting Malaysian Borneo at the end of August and we decided to split our stay between Borneo Rainforest Lodge and Shangri-La's Rasa Ria.

Now the questions:

1. How much will charge a taxi from airport to Shangri-La's Rasa Ria? The hotel gave us a rate of 267 MYR per way very likely to be expensive comparable with a normal taxi

2. Do you think is a good idea to visit half a day KK and have dinner in the city? Are taxis easily to find during evenings?

3. Is Sabah malaria free?

For the moment these are my only questions. Probably more to come.

Thank you for having patience in answering my questions.

Get a uber or grab for cheaper alternative

The OP has been and gone. I would also be careful with Uber or grab as they may not be licenced operators and not have insurance. Your travel insurance may be void if you are involved in an accident.
