Everything is fine.

Friendly staff, quite place, comfortable room
This was my second time to stay in Rasa Ria. My family spent 5 days there and had a wonderful time during the New Year holiday. All the staff were friendly and very helpful. Food is good.

facilities, grounds, service
An amazing resort if you want to relax and get away from it all. Rooms are excellent although it's worth upgrading to the ocean wing to escape the crowds. Located 1hr from Kota Kinabalu, be prepared to spend all your time at the resort. The Italian and Indian restaurants are particularly good. Beware of sand flies as they are everywhere. Couldn't fault the resort - amazing.

Breakfast, bed, clean beach and everything around
Very easy and nice stay, helpful staff, no push, a variety of healthy food, accommodating health problems. An excellent chef and staff at Tepi Laut resto, taking care of gluten free customers. A variety of activities offered by resort, including fishing, jungle hiking, spa, etc... A bit of upset ( not too serious) - no chance to watch Chelsea Premier League match, but that' s understandable in a place like this :). Staff tried to do all in their capacity...

The BEST hotel in Malaysia !!!

Facility, Pool, Beach, (everything)
Pool, Facility, Staff, Restaurants, Beach are all very good!!! Though the hotel is 45mins away from the airport/town, but we don't need to go out. Orangutan tour was RM64/adult which is a good experience but a bit too short...

Relaxing Beach Resort Stay

Food, Beach, Decor
I didn't like that they didn't provide airport shuttles as the resort is pretty far away from the airport, however, a one way taxi from the airport to rasa ria only costs between 90 to 100RM. Checking in early was a bit of a hassle as my flight landed early but my stay was during the peak period in December so all the rooms were fully booked and i couldn't do an early check in, but the staff were really nice and accommodating in the main reception area. Offering me fruits and beverages. Staff were very friendly, Greeted guests all the time even when we're just walking pass them, they were always willing to help guests out no matter the request. Overall a very good stay. Would go back there again.
