Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa

Set in tropical grounds along a vast white-sand bay with a beautiful nature reserve in the grounds.

With a spectacular spa and fantastic facilities, Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa is a unique retreat for nature lovers and a luxurious haven for relaxation. If you can tear yourself away from the beach or pool, you should make the most of the beautiful natural environment. The newly renovated Rasa Ria Reserve will have two experiential areas – Adventure Point and the Nature Reserve. Set in the heart of the rainforest, Adventure Point is the ultimate playground for kids, with obstacle courses, tree houses and a 30-metre junior zip line. At the Nature Reserve you can find more than 64 bird species and wildlife such as the endangered pangolin. Follow a guided walking trail here or enjoy an exhibition at its new Discovery Centre. Rasa Ria Reserve also has nocturnal wildlife viewing, where you can spot bearcat and sambar deer.  

From authentic Malaysian ‘street food’ at the Tepi Laut Makan Street restaurant and traditional Indian cuisine at Naan – Flavours of India, to Italian dishes at the Oceano Italian Restaurant, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining. Wherever you do decide to eat, be sure to begin your evening with a sunset cocktail at the laid-back Sampan Bar which overlooks the beach.

The rooms have a balcony or terrace and are set either in the Garden Wing with forest or garden views, or the Ocean Wing with sea views. The Superior Rainforest View Rooms face the tropical forest to the back of the resort, while the Deluxe Garden View and Sea View Rooms are situated in the Garden Wing and face the front of the resort. If you choose a Premier Ocean View Room, you can enjoy a little extra luxury with a bathtub on your balcony.
