We really enjoyed our 2 nights stay in Shangrila Rasa Ria,Tuaran; Garden Wing, ocean view room. It was 30 min fr centre of KK. I would suggest this garden wing for those with famly with young kids, because it is nearby to the kids pool and lot of other activities. We booked directly to the website and entitled for late check out. It is a one stop centre for those who loves nature ( enjoy the greenery while listening to the voice of the jungle) and ocean .The weather was nice. We did so many activities but we dont feel exhausted. Nature Walk in the Rasa Ria Reserve( highly recommended) for family with kids (our youngest was 4). There was a small hill for hiking, with the magnificent view at the top. The hiking was at the easy level. Really give them the exposure. The hospitality was unbeatable, staff were very nice, helpful and accomodating. We enjoyed the beach cleaning activities too, such a lesson for kids for ocean care and sustainable living. We enjoyed the bicycle riding session around the resort and we enjoyed our Fusbal session. For breakfast selection ,it was ok, not too many, not too little. Other than the restaurant hotels, there were also nearby Muslim’s restaurants ; Restoran Terapung Fadza ( served just caught alive fish) with killer menu: ikan kerapu goreng with nyonya style sauce and Restoran Transit Dalit ( served very satisfyg meal of goreng2 ,nasi penyet and other Semenanjung dish) We actually havent finish exploring all of the activities in the resort yet. We’ll surely come again. More in our youtube : Ailisa Macam Macam in

Hotel's Favourite
Nestled amidst lush greenery, the sea and mountains. This huge resort is divided into two main wings, the ocean and garden wing, both with great views. Beach was relatively clean with a vast area for walks and sports. Poolside was a tad crowded during the peak season. Rooms are luxurious & spacious. But above all, the one thing that stood out was the hospitality of the staff. A minor glitch occured during my check-in that was rectified promptly by Mr Barry, who saw me to my room personally & offered a late check-out as compensation. Even during my check-out he saw that I was accompanied to my car with the shuttle service. These are the kind of things that makes a hotel stand out and encourages a 2nd visit for sure. Thank you, yet again ShangriLa for another memorable experience.

Love the hotel and ambient. Would come back again to Shangri-la rasa ria. Reception is very friend in attending our needs. As I came with my parents, they change my room to ground floor which is nearer to restaurant and offered a free upgrade.

Quite disappointed with this visit. We came back with our lil one thought that we gonna have another sweet memory. The service standard totally dropped. Check in time took long time and waited for an hour to get our room. Poor little baby had to wait with us in the lobby. I have had to ask for a welcome drink instead being served. Upon booking, already requested baby cot like our last visit. There was no baby cot prepared when we checked in the room. For the food wise, food quality also dropped. Not value for money. Paid RM200 for buffet dinner per head but food served was just like a 3 star hotel! Awful. Our first and last for their tepi laut buffet. We used to dine in Kozan but this visit just wanted to try something new. What a disappointment! Morning breakfast on the second day even worst. I doubted their standard is 5 star or 3 star. Paid for Ocean Wing Suite room but what we received was just like 3 star service standard including food.

Nice place,but beware of sandflies.They provided a sandflies repellent near the pool,so be sure to apply on your body.The food is okay since we opt for a room service during this pandemic.Room is clean but the fan is making a scary sound at night,probably because it's old?Overall,I'm satisfied with my staycation.
