It is dawn, and you are seated in a tower as the majestic new sun rises over Mount Kinabalu in the distance. This is the best breakfast you have ever had.
Pantai Dalit Beach, enveloped by the tranquil Nature Reserve
This is Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort on Pantai Dalit Beach. Set amidst a nature reserve, the resort enchants endlessly with its natural magic.
Your Malaysian-themed room is perched on a verdant hill, with a spectacular beachfront view, surrounded by 400 acres of tropical forest. You see the catamarans along the beach, and can only imagine what other activities await.
The resort is home to an eco-friendly championship golf course and the magnificent Spa at Dalit Bay. Unique to the Rasa Ria resort is the Orangutan Education Centre where you’ll meet Sabah’s icon.
Even the kids have their own fun club. And the more adventurous ones get to help the rangers look after the baby Orang Utans in the resort’s care.
You decide on horse riding today and all-terrain vehicle safari tomorrow. Don’t forget about the deep-sea fishing the day after.
Twilight happens all too soon. But with sunset cocktails and dinner in a beach-side gazebo served by your own private butler, you don’t really mind.
Once you’ve experienced the splendour, nothing else matters. Welcome to paradise.
