We enjoyed our stay every time we visit. Will never stay in any other hotels. Love the whole outlook and ambiance of the resort with its lush greenery and modern contemporary architecture. Lots to do especially for the kids.
Max B. Families with young children United Kingdom, April 8, 2015
Best Sunset View!

Amazing Location to watch sunset,
8.7
It was a nice stay, good for traveling with children as they have small water park and golf course. The best part of the stay is the amazing view of the Borneo sunset. Close to the islands for snorkelling.
Diana C. Couples Australia, April 6, 2015
Overpriced large resort with too many people

Location is the only positive of this resort.
4.7
The resort was busy therefore attention to detail lacked. Ran out of burgers. Breakfast buffet was a mess. Wait staff around the pool don't pay attention. The only way to get around is by taxi and yet they ran out of hotel taxis at dinner. You are unable to charge hotel taxis to the hotel. I wouldn't visit again. We stayed in an executive suite.
Yau Y. Families with older children Hong Kong, April 5, 2015
Relaxing resorts with polite staff

Feeling warm with polite staff members who always keep smiling. Feeling relaxed with life Malaysian traditional music. Love the cosy bedding and to stay at Sunset Bar to enjoy sunset scene.

Good and Bad Experience, far to the Shangrila Bran

Location-near airport; Clean/big rooms; Club Access

We had a terrible start in this hotel we arrived 12pm & we're checked-in at 3:30pm due to room not yet ready. They ask you to check out at exactly 12pm but they can check you in even way pass 2pm. We waited for addtl 1.5hrs from our flight doing nothing. Bcoz of the delay they sent complimentary 1 Bot of Wine but delivered it at arnd 9pm Evening! we were awaken so rude even theres dont disturb sign. Then 1am suddenly so HOT in the room due to NO AIRCON! They shut down aircon intermittently, the next the day arnd 11am no aircon again! We had a lot of inconveniences during our stay and doesnt live up the Shangri-la Global standards. Btw no beach access or I don't know if u cud swim in the beach area. Water parks/facilities are ok though. In sum not worth our money could've stayed somewhere else...
Brian S. Families with young children United States of America, March 30, 2015
Weekend getaway for family

close to airport. Kid friendly. Beautiful grounds.
8.7
Water park is great for kids. Food is very good. Of course the breakfast buffet is amazing. We had a suite which was very big. Had a door to keep kids and parents separate for sleeping. Staff was nice but not as great as Rasa Ria. More resort/Commerical feel than rasa Ria. Both are very nice. Each has its positives. This would be a great hotel to go to for a weekend to getaway from Jakarta. It is a bit expensive and the extra activities are very expensive. But even with the cost it is very relaxing and a wonderful place for a family to stay.
Alex L. Couples Canada, March 20, 2015
Best in KK

Club service, hotel beach, public area cleanliness, star marina, sunset view.
8.7
Pleasantly surprised and delighted. Good value for money. Infrastructure all top notch, and area in need of improvement are staff, who need to be more attentive and anticipate customer requests.
