    Man (& woman) of the Jungle, at home here

    by

    Best part, by far, was the nature reserve. Meet the orangutans at the daily feeding. Nightly there is a nocturnal animal feeding which requires some degree of stamina to sit through, as the animals might not get hungry for a few hours and you are meant to sit there quietly and wait for them...

    Service and food are similar to Tanjung Aru. Added benefit is that you are far away from it all and can feel the seclusion.

    If you are trying to decide between the two, go with Rasa Ria -- better by a small margin.

    They also have some horses, but you have to organize that before going over, else they won't be ready for you. Pretty cool beach for a ride.

    Unique Quality: Horse stable on the beach.
    Local food.
    Nature reserve.

    Directions: about 1.5 hours from the airport at the worst (we were there in just under 1 hour).

    A Fantastic Location

    by

    We stayed for 11 nights in this hotel and received wonderful service throughout our stay. The hotel has 4 separate restaurants and 2 bars, all of which offer surprisingly good value and excellent food. There is also a gym and a horse-riding centre, but what made it for us were the fabulous beach and the nature sanctuary with the orang utans. Don't be put off by the distance from Kota Kinabalu (about 30 minutes' drive) - it's definitely worth staying here!

    Unique Quality: For us, the most outstanding memory will be our visits to see the orang utans and catching glimpses of them swinging around the trees from the hotel. The beach is fabulous - long and sandy - and is swept every morning. Views of the sunset from our bedroom window were also a nightly treat.

    Directions: About 30 minutes' drive north of Kota Kinabalu

    Dalit Bay

    by

    A lovely place to stay. The staff were all friendly, which made the hotel seem more personal.

    If you wish to get away from crowds and enjoy the beach, this is the right place for you.

    Unique Quality: It had been well-landscaped and designed and was very well-maintained.

    Good gym and associated facilities. Pleasant atmosphere and good value for barbecue dinner.

    Enjoy several water sports and long evening walks on the beach.

    Directions: Pantai Dalit

The nature reserve at Shangri-La Rasa Ria

by gonnabeatravelbug

Hi all,

Just a question. My friends are going to KK soon and since I have been there, I recommended Magellan Sutera Harbour instead of Rasa Ria. They wanted to know if they can still go the nature reserve at Rasia Ria eventhough they aren't hotel guests.

Is it true that there are orang utans there too?

Many thanks.

Personally I prefer the Rasa Ria, it's a 5* and it has 400 acres of grounds. However yes, there were Orangs at the Rasa Ria when I was last there and they had 2 feeding times daily up in the rain forest. I am not sure if you can visit if you are not a guest but I would imagine you can. Best to 'phone the hotel and ask. They may charge a small fee to go and see them.

Thanks for the email received. Yes, our Nature Reserve open for outsider visitor but only certain time of visiting. Besides, you need 72 hours or three days in advanced booking prior to the actual visit.
