    Superb

    Quiet yet close to airport. I was able to pay a reasonable rate for upgrading to a club level seaview room.

    quality of spa treatment inconsistant. Coffee shop much service too slow.

    Very good

    Had a great weekend break at the Shangri-La Tanjung Aru. Room was spacious and clean with fesh fruit provided, and we had a great view of the island opposite. Staff were friendly and pleasant and the hotel restaurants were more than adequate for our stay when we didn't venture into town. We had a very relaxing massage at sunset at the spa, which is pricey by Malaysian standards, but similarly priced to spas in the UK. The hotel service and standard is very good and it is only five minutes from the airport and ten minutes into town by taxi making it a great location. Considering the size of the resort it didn't feel crowded, and we would definitely consider staying there again should we go back to Kota Kinabalu.

    Superb

    Very friendly staff, great rooms, excellent meals and a wonderful atmosphere. Very relaxing. Close enough to the city and other attractions for easy day trips but located in a quieter part of KK so you can choose not to be disturbed.

    Current refurbishment works meant that the pool and one of the restaurants was out of commission, works were supposed to be completed by the time we got there but were not. This was more annoying as this was not communicated to us at the time. In saying this a free shuttle bus was provided to use the facilities at a sister hotel, and once completed the pool facilities will be first rate.

    Excellent sunset view. Enjoyed the romanrtic walk along the water front.Beautiful resort for couple & family.

    No free shuttle bus to city & quite expensive

    Superb

    Everything was excellent. From check-in to the buffet. The staff really made you feel like a valued customer rather than a number. Can wholeheartedly recommend this place even if it is quite costly.

    Maybe a little overpriced, this is still Malaysia...

    Fabulous

    Excellent childrens facilities and location, although kk is still developing and does not offer us style shopping or restaurants. A resort style hotel which largely caters for Japanese and Chinese visitors and offers a wide spectrum of catering for all tastes but could be classed as pricey.

    I felt the sunbeds could have been more comfy, no matress whilst we had stayed in sister hotel 50 mins away these had been available there. Also not cold water brought around the pool, free large bottles in the room but got warm in the sun, again sister hotel offered this.

    Superb

    The amazing swimming pool Only 10min maximum from the airport The food

    Reception did not not ell us which floor our room was on, and did guide us to our room. We had to find our own way there. The concept of having curtains within the room separating the bathroom from the rest of the room is cool, but as long as it's possible to close the curtains for bathroom privacy. Unfortunately the curtains didn't work too well when trying to close them.

    Very good

    Lots of facilities , best for a family trip which provide you a relax and luxury trip . I was astonished by the breathtaking view at the sea side .

    I booked three rooms with ocean view but ended up staying in rooms which are near to the ocean . Though that the rooms will be facing directly to the ocean but it was just nearby and the view was blocked by trees .

    Superb

    Upon arrival our room was not ready yet but as a compansation we were upgraded to a Club room and were escorted to a special lounge for waiting which served soft drinks and cookies. The room was spacious and very clean. Staff was coming in the evenings to offer extra pillows. The breakfast was excellent just like the buffet dinner. There were many stations with different food types. This means that everybody can find what is for his taste. For breakfast they offer a few fresh juices for which we were dying during our 9 day long trip in Sabah. Another yummy choice for breakfast is the bread and butter pudding with vanilla sauce!!!

    Although the hotel has its own small beach, some people rather dive in the pool - even in masks and pipe!!! - which prevents unimpeded swimming. This could be better controlled. All in all an excellent resort.

    Superb

    Everything, very difficult to fault - staff were exceptional from the moment we arrived, Facilities great, Food excellent and fair value. We had a young trainee (on work experience) greeting us for breakfast every morning and knew what drinks to get for us - she went the extra as did most. Would stay here again - we also benefited from the Booked.net upgrade for sea view room with balcony on level 1 city/harbour side of resort - this was the best place to be as all kids activities and pools are the other side - which is where you would go if you have young ones with you.

    Needs a taxi to town & limited shuttle service to associated hotel. I think the beer prices could be a little lower.
