Kota Kinabalu, formerly known as Jesselton City, is situated on the tropical island of Borneo, and is the capital of the Malaysian state of Sabah, one of the two states in East Malaysia. Facing the South China Sea is The Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park (comprising of five islands) which lies on one side and Mount Kinabalu on the other side. Kota Kinabalu proper has a population of 580,000, while the larger urban area has an estimated population of 700,000. It is the largest urban centre in Sabah and the sixth largest in Malaysia.
With an engaging range of outdoor activities, including a Nature Reserve, Orang Utan education centre and an ecologically friendly championship golf course, Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort is the premier luxury resort in Kota Kinabalu that offers the best of Sabah in a lush, 400-acre tropical setting beside exquisite Pantai Dalit Beach.
Here you'll meet Sabah's icon, the fascinating Orang Utan, as well as a remarkable array of indigenous flora and fauna. Unexpected encounters with hornbills that glide right overhead, peacocks walking by during breakfast, a friendly bear cat greeting you from a tree or the occasional wild rabbit, iguana or squirrel crossing your path are all part of the magic of this remarkable resort.
