Old resort with morden facilities

Staff friendliness, view at the Sunset Bar and the lobby band
8.3
Overall I had a nice stay at the Shangri-la. The staff were friendly and informative - check-in was slow but it was perhaps becoz I was after a group check-in. My room is spacious and extremely comfortable- I had everything except the gym, including what the gym doesn't have - jacuzzi with the seaview. There are two private balconies, one with chairs and table, the other with sun beds. However, my private balcony has been intrigued with two people having lunch at the table one day, and a mom and daughter running here for shelter of rain (while I was actually there).

Great sunset view

Best sunset view
6.7
Pro: best sunset view Con: too many guest in the house and lobby were noisy and mess. Con: no enough carpark bay during my stay and I have to park my car at road side. Maybe due to event on that day. Con: slightly disappointed with hotel arrangement because I had informed reservation dept and front desk again during checked in, about this trip stay is to celebrate my partner birthday. However no single piece of flower or fruits plate as welcome gift.

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.

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.
