Shangri la Rasa Ria Resort, Kota Kinabalu
Perfectly arranged within 400 acres of tropical gardens on the shores of Pantai Dalit beach, the Shangri la Rasa Ria Resort is far more than your everyday beach resort. In 2016, it completed a 20-year orang utan rehabilitation and conservation programme, while its ecologically-friendly championship golf course and vast array of outdoor land and water activities make it one of Borneo’s premier resort destinations.
Comprising 420 guestrooms spread across the Garden & New Ocean Wing, both feature tastefully furnished interiors with touches of Malay flavour combined with soft neutral tones and intricately carved wooden panelling, plus a host of 5-star luxury amenities.
Ground floor rooms in the Garden Wing feature private lanais accessible through lush tropical gardens, while upper floors offer private balconies with views of the tropical landscape and sea, and have an interior two-level design including daybed.
The Ocean Wing outdoor area, at 90 square metres, comes complete with a private outdoor bathtub and stunning views out to the sea. Ocean Wing guests also benefit from exclusive use of their own private wing swimming pool.
As part of the resorts ecological commitment, the leafy coconut placed in your Garden Wing rooms will be replanted after your departure.
A variety of dining opportunities can be found around the resort ranging from popular Malaysian and Asian to traditional cooking from Northern India and Goa. More contemporary Western cuisine can also be found in the beautiful beachfront setting of Coast Restaurant & Bar.
We like: The variety of things on offer, from the lush gardens to numerous dining options.
Best for: Couples who want it all to hand
