Overview


Located in the heart of Kota Kinabalu, only a five-minute taxi ride from the bars, restaurants and the night market, this hotel boasts incredible views of the sun as it sets across the South China Sea.
 
The large resort offers accommodation across two wings. The décor is neutral but makes good use of traditional textures and artwork of Borneo which is coupled with a range of modern comforts ensuring guests receive the five-star service typical of a Shangri-La resort. The two types of room offer either extended views out across the sea or over to the ice-capped Mount Kinabalu.
 
Activities are plentiful here and guests can relax by the pool under the watchful eye of Borneo’s highest peak, play a round of mini golf or simply head to the Sunset Bar and wait for the dazzling display of colours to appear as dusk sets in. For those looking for a more active break, there’s petanque, water volleyball, tennis courts, and a Health Club. Head to the resort’s private jetty and take a boat trip to the neighbouring coral islands, which are part of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park.
 
There are many dining options too, ranging from a large all-day buffet to more traditional Chinese fare or even Italian delights. Cafe TATU serves buffet breakfast and dinner in an open-plan kitchen design, Peppino has been voted as one of the best restaurants in Malaysia, and Shang Palace serves delicious Chinese cuisine made with fresh local ingredients. For those with a sweet tooth, the Cool Box Ice Cream Bar is sure to satisfy your cravings for dessert.
 
CHI, The Spa, beckons after a long flight where the highly-experienced therapists will be on hand to offer traditional or western treatments to kick start your holiday.

Family 


 A beautiful family focused resort, Shangri La Tanjung Rhu is the perfect place for your next Far East holiday with the kids. Situated on 25 acres of landscaped gardens which overlook a stunning bay, this intimate oasis offers something for everyone. Young children will love the complimentary kids’ club called the Cool Zone. One of the largest of its kind in Malaysia, it offers childcare and play facilities which are perfect for your little ones. Some activities available include finger painting, arts and crafts, and other skill-based efforts such as costume making and interactive story time.

For older children and teens, a computer and TV room allows for a little entertainment while complimentary computer usage and video games make for some normality in their lives, giving them the chance to stay in touch with friends whilst being away. Parents are also invited to take part in the fun of the cool zone by sitting to mingle with other parents on holiday as they drink coffee and relax amongst each other.

Other adult-friendly activities to get involved with include spending some well deserved time at CHI, the indulgent and luxurious on-site spa which offers memorable treatments that will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. For a fantastic family outing, both the nearby Oranguatan sanctuary and Turtle island make for wonderful half-day excursions for all to enjoy. 

Children  


Cool Zone Kids Club
The largest childcare and play centre in Malaysia offers daily activities for children between four and 12 years old. The facility has a computer and television room, Internet access, PlayStations and a separate section for toddlers. Activities are led by the resort’s recreations team with hands-on guided classes and include hat, garland and bead making, scavenger hunts, pastry biscuit making and coconut craft.  

Resort Style ‘Theme Park’ Fun
The resort’s brand new water play area offers endless hours of play with three colourful theme park quality water slides measuring a total length of 100 metres.
