Two Thumbs up for Shangri-la's Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa!
The staff (Brian form the front desk) gave us an access to their lounge for us to be able to enjoy all the facilities all day and rest while waiting for our midnight flight. Really appreciate it. We had so much fun!!! :) We also want to commend the F&B manager of Cafe Tatu. He's so accommodating and friendly. He made sure that we had enjoy our dinner. He also gave us few tips about the tourist attractions and the do's and dont's in shopping at KK.

It's a good resort hotel
Sunset bar.
Above average. Staff in the dining areas can be more friendly and should be more concise and give way to guests with plates of food in their hands.

Superior but also expensive
the wonderful sunset, hotel facilities and breakfast
First of all i need to say it's wonderful facilities and environment in this hotel i have ever gone. it's really 5 star resort and it provided you a excellent experience when you enjoy their leisure facilities for free( most of all). Secondly, the sunset bar is the beautiful place to see the sunset view everyday and the staff there was very nice and answer your inquiry with smile (exculde the front desk staff). Unfortunately, this resort didnt provide free shuttle service and just arrange taxi service for you withh RM30 each time. To be conculed, it's wonderful experience but not worth for this price especially your travel budget is limited.

3 day break
facilities, staff,location
I enjoyed every minute of being there,i thought the rooms could do with a little overhaul nothing serious, in saying this the bathroom / washroom was first class. maybe nicer furniture to add a little sparkle to the room but otherwise it was fantastic,including food.

Location, pools, chi massage
The hotel is very nice, the location is second to none in KK, would stay again, however I would skip the hotel food.

Not what I expected
The Gym and the Pool
Very disappointed, as I reserved a suit with a sea view, and only got a ground level with a tree view, asked to change rooms which was not possible, asked them to check their other hotel, got no response. The staff are in a perpetual state of confusion and chaos. Sat down for the buffet after selecting my food, and was then informed that the buffet was finished, which was on Christmas Day, so I couldn't ear the Christmas dinner that I had obtained. Resort was too busy and is more orientated to families with small children, so very noisy, no available sun beds, and not very relaxing....not a 5 star experience, not a true Shangri La.....also very disappointed with Agoda as the room was misrepresented as ocean view, but was actually a no view, and we paid top buck!

Great in hospitality
Hospitality, kids pool & slides, breakfast
We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Staff was very pleasant. Our kids were 100% satisfied with their great wet play area with slides. The only negative point of this hotel might be the very small beach.
