We spent three days here. We came to relax, forget about work and do very little. By very little, I mean walks on the beach, walking through the jungle to watch Orang-Utangs being rehabilitated , eating some very fine food in some very nice locations (they have a captive audience, but you don't care). The staff are the friendliest and...

The Ocean Wing is excellent: quiet huge swimming pool; great breakfast venue (Coast) next to the beach and super rooms which are genuinely large enough for two young children in two separate beds to share with parents. For those not going elsewhere in Sabah the onsite nature reserve is a great introduction to the local wildlife and the ranger/ researcher...

Having read the reviews which are similar, I have categorized the hotels' facilities into 5* and not 5* as the rating is 'officially' 5*; 5* Ocean Wing grounds and pool area & jacuzzi. Ocean Wing service, constant ice water and occasional snacks. Ocean Wing room/suite, like a small apartment. Room tea & coffee facilities. Coast Restaurant breakfast only. Clean and...

The ocean wing is awesome - the room is very well-maintained and the view is great. Swimming pool for Ocean Wing guests is much less crowded. The breakfast at The Coast is considered on par with Shangrila's standard (can be better though). The staffs are really friendly and professional! The beach is well kept - white CLEAN sand.

The hotel facilities are very nice. Our room, on the ground floor was comfortable and spacious with a good design to have young children in the same room. There are several restaurants and you have a quite large choice of food. There is a Orang Utangs monkeys reserve in the hotel and it is great! Beach is nice, but there...

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
