Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort

Pantai Dalit Beach, Tuaran - Map
"Great beachside hotel. Great staff and facilities"
Stayed here for 3 nights before going on a tour of Sabah. Great relaxation. We had the cheaper jungle side rooms. These are large and well appointed but would be worth going for sea view ones if cost not a lot more - . Breakfasts excellent and good choice of evening meals ( we cut out lunch as breakfasts so plentiful). Beach and sea just as we hoped - large, clean and warm. Only negative was the paid for activities ( night nature watch and canopy walk) which seemed a bit pricey for what was delivered. Firefly watching trip was better. Watersports may be a better option. Hotel remote so unless you have hire car (they drive on the left) or go on organised excursions it is very much a holiday at the hotel. I had the best and cheapest hair cut ever - pity it is so far to return for a the next time I need a cut.Everyone could speak English.

Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai

Off Jalan Sepangar Bay, Kota Kinabalu - Map
The hotel is a little remote from the city but if you have your own car, it shouldn't be a problem. I stayed in the 2-bedroom spa suite and it was really good! The suite was huge and the bedrooms were comfortable. The spa-suite and villa side is a bit far from the main wing but they have free shuttle service to send you to and fro the main wing. Overall, my stay was very satisfying.

Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa

Polish Bay, Gaya Island, Gaya Island - Map
"Gorgeous jungle resort."
Stayed at Bunga Raya for 2 nights with a friend. We had a deluxe villa which was much larger than expected. We had requested twin beds on booking and unfortunately arrived to 1 large bed, however this was quickly taken care of when discussed with hotel staff. The resort is built into the mountains in a very unobtrusive way and is much larger than it looks. There's a lovely pool but it is situated on a beautiful beach which was pristine during our visit. We snorkelled in the coral reef just off the shore of the resort and saw hundreds of fish and coral. Spa facilities are very good and we had some excellent treatments. My only criticism is that the bathroom shutters don't completely shut off from the outside so the bathroom is always humid and there were a few insects, however this didn't hamper our enjoyment of the resort. Would definitely recommend, we thought it was close to paradise!
