Shangri La's Tanjung Aru Resort

by rosie235 about Shangri La's Tanjung Aru Resort

All staff were extremely friendly. The resort has a very welcoming feel to it. Lush and green with lots of quiet areas that you can just sit and reflect. The recently upgraded Tanjung Aru wing is definitely worth paying a little bit more for. The pools were beaut. Great toddlers pool and two others of varying depths to suit everyone. The kids club has a good variety of activities to keep the littlies entertained. The hotel can also arange babysitting. There is a range of dining choices to suit everyone including a "corner store" which sells snacks, drinks etc.

a lovely resort

Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort (STAR)
Malaysian ringitt (RM) 25 acres beautifully laid out, on the South China Sea. A five star resort, with all the amenities one could ask for. Numerous pools & resturants, shops, all tied in one resort. A little pricy, but well worth it!

I have stayed at Shangrila¡¯s Tanjung Aru Resort. And it was really excellent!!! You can even stay whole day in the hotel. They have a great swimming pool and if you are sick of the freshwater, you can walk to the beach in no time!

Tanjung Aru Hotel

by yeikloen about Casuarina Hotel

Not a bad location because is a walking distance to the beach and also a newly build complex with some pub, a restaurant and a food court with lots of food to choose from. BB Cafe band off duty at 12mn, beers are quite expensive RM20 for 4 cans. Close to Terminal 2 Air Asia Airport and reasonable food.

Beautiful Views

by suzyq40 about Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort

The stay here was wonderful. The staff were very polite, efficient and courteous. On arrival I asked for some ice to be brought up to my room, and it was there before I got there.
I was upgraded to a sea view room with King size bed as I was a Shangri-La Golden circle member, this is free to join and can be done on their website. I highly recommend it. Every room has its own safe.
The rooms in the Tanjung wing have been renovated, however Im not sure as to how many in the Kinabalu wing have been, not that it matters, they were very spacious and clean. The Pools were great, quite large and there were enough banana lounges for everyone. Try a strawberry daiquri, fantastic.
The restaurants at the hotel werent that bad either for taste and price wise.

Tanjung Aru Beach

by esPee

"Tanjung Aru......"

This use to be my playground...... Tanjung Aru beach it is. A place to be the first day you come visit and that last trip before leaving just to mesmerize your trip in Sabah, Malaysia before you go. Simply, just to enjoy that afternoon breeze.

Each visit is always like the first time. Finding a nice spot.....getting that cold coconut drink or just a cold cocktail.... Its a very relaxing place to enjoy the sunset. As the night falls, the beach is still lighted from the reflections of the restaurants lightings.

At night, you will enjoy a cultural and native dance show (which its so amazing to watch). Its out in the open air restaurant, diners and passers-by can enjoy the shows.

Can't really describe much in words....need to come and experience it!

"Tanjung Aru beach sunset"

The sunset and breeze..... you need to imagine while taking this picture, it was so relaxing.....

"The Beach......"

This is the beach like any other beautiful beaches.... A place to stop over when you are in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

"Rania taking her time off...."

Rania....... trying to tame the waters!!!!

great, if you hear let me know too will you? In the meantime we go february/march so will let you know on my return - if I am any the wiser! Have you booked your trips yet, some of the replies I have had on this forum have been from guides, but difficult to know what to do and if they are any good, certainly they are enthusiastic ! Hope you have a great time.

Re: Tanjung Aru

by Smelly_Janelley


I emailed Tanjung Aru regarding the Tanjung and Kinabalu wings and how much would it cost to upgrade to the tanjung wing.This is what i got back .that Kinabalu wing(Superior or Deluxe room) more to hotel type however Tanjung Deluxe(Old wing and newly renovated) are more to resort taste. Should you require an upgrade to tanjung Deluxe room an surcharge at RM150.00++(10% service charge and 5% government tax) per room per night on top of the agent rate.


Re: Re: Tanjung Aru

by smiffy11family

thanks for info on Tanjung Aru, We are booked into the Horizon floor, so still not sure which rooms they are,I have tried asking and they assure me they are the best rooms, but they seem to be saying that about all the rooms.! Anyway hopefully we will all have a lovely time whatever. Have you tried the Shangri La website , where you can do a virtual tour, including the rooms? This is good , all the rooms look great. Thanks again for letting me know, have you booked your trips yet?

Tanjung Aru

by cikgu

Hope, Tanjung Aru is a nice place. I'll be there from 6th to 12th of Feb, staying in Shangrila Hotel. Would you VT members suggest me good restaurant or makan stall nearby, Halal food. Touring centers around, that can visit during 5 to 7pm, take photos during night times. And lastly, bowling center. Ty

RE: Tanjung Aru

by syetan

Plenty of food stalls within walking distance of the hotel-all halal and at the main eatery (sugar Bun) they tend to have some shows at night. it's pretty much right at the beach too. with bowling-go to CPS Bowling at Centre Point shopping complex (8th floor) but it can get full at night with competitions.

Tanjung Aru Internet

by mimmyt

The Tanjung Aru states it has Internet Access in rooms, does anyone know if there is a charge for this service if you have a laptop.

RE: Tanjung Aru Internet

by BorneoGrrl

Good news, I heard that all guest rooms include complimentary High Speed Internet Access (HSIA). Therefore, it's free. Cheers :)
