Shangri-la's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa

Pantai Dalit Beach, Tuaran 89208 - Map
"This hotel is fantastic. The staff are amazing."
We had a wonderful time at Rasa Ria. We played golf, the course is beautiful and well presented. All the staff at the hotel who we met were very friendly and could not do enough for us. my husband particularly enjoyed the sea swimming. We did not participate in all the activities but there were lots on offer. We stayed in a standard room which was very nice. We did look at one of the new ones in the ocean wing. It was much larger and well appointed but for the time we actually spend in our room we did not think it was worth the upgrade offered of £50-60 per night. The hotel is far from town so you are quite restricted as regards restaurants ie you tend to stay in. We are fine with this, however of the 5 restaurants onsite on most nights 3 were serving a buffet style menu ie high price for all you can eat. This is not our thing, we prefer a la carte quantities. The last thing to mention is be warned of the sand flies. We took precautions and were still bitten. It will not stop us going back to this lovely place!

Shangri La's Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa

No. 20, Jalan Aru, Kota Kinabalu 88100 - Map
"Great for family with kids"
Hotel grounds are beautiful and multiple swimming pools provide enough variety for adults and children alike. The kids area has water-slides which our children enjoyed greatly. Kept them busy all day long. Staff was very accommodating and assisted us with looking after our kids while we were able to get food from the breakfast buffet. Beach is fairly small but clean, however, we enjoyed the pools moreover anyway. Rooms are of decent size and could accommodate a fairly large crib. Hotel located within 10min from town so it was easy to go out and acquire dinner for cheaper pricing. Hard Rock cafe close-by, but other venues much cheaper could be found. The Shang may be slightly dated compared with other Shangs we've been to, but it was overall worth the money given the overall service and amenities.

Hyatt Regency Kinabalu

Jalan Datuk Salleh Sulong, Kota Kinabalu 88991 - Map
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
The hotel itself was really good : very nice staff, huge room, pretty good swimming pool and a sauna. The restaurant is quite expensive but the food was really good (at least the buffet style's breakfast). My only complain will be about our room's view: we were facing very old and not so engaging buildings... I therefore highly recommend a room with sea view.

"Nice view and nice hotel"
Overall is good about hotel facilities, cleanliness, comfort, food, staff, etc. but there are so few choices of food and activity to provide for kids if kids are staying here in my experience.

The Pacific Sutera Hotel

1 Sutera Harbour Boulevard, Kota Kinabalu 88100 - Map
"Comfortable accommodations, good location"
Our family of 6 stayed just one night at the Pacific Sutera portion of the large marina-facing property, in transit from one Borneo destination to another via Kota Kinabalu. The front desk was warm, friendly, and very helpful and accommodating (i.e., we were scheduled for an early departure the morning of check out - too early to enjoy the inclusive buffet - so they made sure to have takeaway meals prepared for us upon exit). Both our rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, and although they faced the golf course side of the hotel and the road beyond, no outside noise permeated the balcony door. The restaurant was perfectly fine - friendly service and good food (both Western and SE Asian offerings). We ordered dinners from the a la carte menu, as the buffet looked good, but not irresistible. The kids loved the large pool closest to the hotel, but guests have access to 3 other pools a short walk away as well. Not a luxury 5-star experience, but a solid value for your money, especially if traveling with a family/group.

Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa

Polish Bay, Gaya Island, Gaya Island 88300 - Map
"Well worth it..." does look a bit tried in places but it was well worth the trip to the Island to stay in a piece of paradise for five nights...after two weeks of travelling around Borneo. We had a lot of ran and there is not much to do when that happens...but wait for it to stop - so if travelling with teenagers then you need to have thinks to entertain them with. The staff were very friendly and helpful - always trying to make your stay pleasant.

"Great place to chill and relax and superb staff."
The resort was quiet, relaxing and gorgeous. For a family with two young kids (10 & 8) it was ideal. We visited the Marine Ecology Reseach Centre twice, as the kids loved it, endlessly swam and relaxed either in the pool or sea and also completed the jungle/canopy walk at its sister resort, Bunga Raya, via a free boat trip around the island.
