About Us

Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa, Kota Kinabalu in Malaysian Borneo, will bring new immersive guest experiences, as part of the re-development of the respected nature reserve in Sabah. The innovative recreational proposition will enhance the reserve’s conservation education programme, as well as introduce a range of new cultural and adventure experiences.

The protected 64-acre Rasa Ria Reserve is nestled within Shangri-La Rasa Ria’s 400 acres of tropical jungle, watched over by Sabah’s iconic Mount Kinabalu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is home to the long-tailed macaques, western tarsiers, bear cats and the famous huge-eyed slow loris, plus over 60 species of birds, 100 species of butterflies, pangolins and a wide spectrum of native plants.

Guests will be able to choose from a variety of new and enhanced experiences from the creation of a Discovery Centre in Rasa Ria Reserve, which will educate guests about the indigenous wildlife and plants through interactive exhibits. Constructed with environmentally sustainable materials and designed to capture the essence of the rainforest the Discovery Centre will sit at the heart of Rasa Ria Reserve and will be the gateway to the reserve’s unique trail system that covers five miles of jungle walk through the tropical jungle. Six walking trails will individually showcase a different side to the tropical jungle from entomology to herbs, native, adventure, wildlife and canopy walk, offering up to two hours per walk of exploration, learning and fun. Essentially one of the best outdoor activity in Sabah, which is what the state is well known for.

A new natural rain watering hole will enhance the local wildlife’s habitat as well as provide the perfect look-out spot in which to spot nocturnal animals including the Pangolin. Set in the midst of the Rasa Ria Reserve it will encourage local wildlife, who roam freely across the 64-acre reserve, to feed and take water, creating a magical experience for visitors.

The rangers nurture the reserve with the maintenance of the natural surroundings to ensure prosperity in both fauna and flora, plus animals, available to view from guided walking trails.
