Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort is a good all-round hotel, appealing to couples and families alike. It has life and vitality, quality and tremendous facilities contained within the extensive grounds. The rooms in the original wings of the hotel were considerably enhanced earlier this year, and repeat guests will notice the new fresh contemporary design, whilst first-time visitors will just be impressed! In addition, the beach chairs and decking have all been upgraded, giving the resort an even more luxurious feel. However, for those who require even more space and a real sense of occasion and exclusivity, the Ocean Wing rooms are the place to be.
Sabah will probably not have been chosen for its shopping, but the capital, Kota Kinabalu, has a surprising selection of mega shopping malls – One Borneo is probably one of the largest in the region. A shuttle operates between the hotel and the mall and into KK several times daily, journey time approx. 20 minutes to mall or 40 minutes to KK, at a cost of RM 30 pp. approx.
Sabah can easily be combined with Kuala Lumpur for an interesting twin-centre. For those with even more time and are looking for city contrasts, we particularly suggest the combination of KL, Rasa Ria and then ending in Hong Kong for a few days.
In addition, Shangri-La has another hotel in Sabah, the Tanjung Aru. Located close to the airport and the state capital Kota Kinabalu, the hotel offers 425 rooms and suites and good leisure facilities. It makes a convenient base for exploring Kota Kinabulu, travelling to Sandikan Orangutan Sanctuary and the offshore islands.

Malaysia is one of the most fascinating countries in the region with a rich diversity of cultures, scenery and resort variety. Peninsula Malaysia stretches down from the border with Thailand in the north through to Singapore in the south. On the separate island of Borneo you have the states of Sarawak and Sabah. Flying time from UK is approx. 12 hours to Kuala Lumpur (known as KL). Onward travel to Penang or Langkawi is one hour, two hours to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and Kuching, Sarawak.
Kuala Lumpur, is the proud capital city, with high rise buildings, but just as many colourful older traditional areas. Lively street markets competing with luxurious shopping malls for the attention of your wallet. The prices are some of the most competitive in the region. Fantastic selection of restaurants fully reflecting the diversity of influences found in Malaysia, but with just as many culinary options from around the globe.
