Wow... this hotel is something else! From the moment we arrived the service was second to non. Check in was relaxed, fast, easy and very professional. The cleanliness, level of service, attention to detail, quality of every meal, atmosphere was just perfect. I really cant recommend this hotel any higher. For me, it sets the bench mark for all future...

We stayed here at the end of our honeymoon, and it was like stepping into another world. From the moment we arrived we were treated as if we were the only guests there. Check in was quick and easy, and on arrival to our room found little treats waiting for us, along with a note congratulating us on our wedding....

Me and my wife recently stayed here as part of our honeymoon. The hotel is set in a lovely area north of KK (as the locals call it). Upon arrival we were greeted with towels and a drink. My only gripe was that we were immediately asked if we would like to pay for a room upgrade. We did upgrade...

We recently held our inaugural leaders conference at this resort and the overall reviews by the attendees was very complimentary for the friendly service, facilities and relaxing feel of the resort. The staff went to every effort to ensure our stay and those of the delegates was memorable and comfortable. The pool areas were expansive and clean with additional pool...

Excellent environment, service hotel facilities. Family friendly. The staff are supportive. Full of natural beauties. Watching the sunset on the beach is incredible! A little far away from the town, but upon arrived we never thought again of going out to the town but enjoy every moment to be there in the resort.

My brother his partner and I took my mother to KK for my mother for 79th birthday. We had two adjoining rooms in the Ocean View wing on the 4th level and the view was beautiful. We could not fault the staff at all, the service, attention too detail, friendliness etc was superb. Food was excellent. Highly recommend.

We had an amazing 7 nights at the Rasa Ria. We had tried to organise an airport transfer last minute as we were arriving late at night. However, we had not received a response prior to departure so assumed we would just need to get a taxi. When we walked out of the baggage claim there was someone waiting for...

We stayed at the Rasa Ria for 6 nights. I felt unwell during the start of our stay but the nurse on site was helpful and kind. And the medication certainly did the trick. We arrived very late but were greatly with a lovely friendly smile and shown to where we could eat. The whole atmosphere is laid back, the...

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
