My Stay at Shangrilas’ Rasa Ria Resort, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

For 3 mornings I woke up looking at South China Sea! Who would want to get up from that luxurious lap, the ultra cozy room of the resort! I was at Shangrilas’ Rasa Ria Resort, Kota Kinabalu. But then the delicious spread of breakfast tempted me to rush up. They have food catering to all tastes, palates and nationalities. It was not for the food alone but also to get a good seat for the view of sea while munching on food.One of the nights we had dinner at Tepi Laut, which has an extensive buffet style dinner. The chefs prepared dishes from my choice ingredients.

Restaurant at Shangrilas’ Rasa Ria Resort

The restaurants are extravagant, I am totally blown away by the experience there. I was put up in the Ocean Wing, there are several other Wings, and in fact the whole complex is a huge one. They offer various kinds of facilities and they provide you with transport from one section to other.The best part of the resort is that the beach is a private one. Holidaymakers in the resort were seen jogging and having walks in the silky sandy beach mornings and evenings. It has access to water sports – hydro bikes, jet skiing, kayaking, para-sailing, etc. Sigh! I was on work there!

The rooms are well equipped with all necessary stuffs and snacks. The toiletries provided were too good. The most important of all, wifi connectivity is good. The staff treats you so well; greetings and service from all staff made me feel very important and special.This resort is used as wedding venue; I did see a good crowd of Indians there.

Activities at Shangrilas’ Rasa Ria Resort

There are few other activities at the resort. I participated in one of the daily event of theirs: Meet the Orangutan. You can read about it here: My Orangutan Encounter. One of the most unique things I saw there was a 5 blade ceiling fan made of cane! Never saw something like that before.The only minus point is its distance from airport, it took us almost an hour.
