Occupying a prime stretch of beach fronting the South China Sea about 40 minutes drive from the Borneo’s Kota Kinabalu Airport, the Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort & Spa occupies a secluded and romantic beachfront location touching the edge of the Borneo jungle.

Accommodation ranges from Superior Rooms overlooking the rainforest to the more luxurious Ocean Wing.

One of the highlights of the Shangri La Rasa Ria is the adjoining nature reserve.

Shangri La Rasa Ria is a large resort with lots of facilities including swimming pools, Chi Spa, Water sports and a nature sanctuary.

Tennis courts and golf are available and plenty of excursions and activities are available. There are great activities on offer for kids.

We love the Shangri La Rasa Ria for the romantic location, the rainforest backdrop and for the wildlife sanctuary. The Rasa Ria is great for couples (especially in the luxurious Ocean Wing) but also for families.

Bear in mind that the Rasa Ria is 40 minutes by car from Kota Kinabalu and there is very little around or close to the resort with the exception of the golf course and extensive resort facilities.
