Pros: The experience was exceptional. The staff was friendly and helpful. The family room was just like i expected, like the one in the photo. I took the one which was children friendly. 1 King size bed separately with connecting door and the kids room was kids friendly with decoration - have 1 bunk bed and extra pull over mattress. Has 2 large bean bags and Wooden cabinet mean which is kids friendly. My 2 kids, 3 and 7years really love it. The room can actually fit 4adults and kids. I took the one with Sea view. The view was breathtaking. On arrival, the room was ready with compliment drinks, fruits...so welcoming. Got small size robes meant for kids and slippers too. I am actually amazed with the in house toiletry kits - it was all from L'Occitane brand! What a Luxury! Not to mention the interior of the building - extraordinary - High Class. The main reason we came to the resort was for the water park, as we want to spend quality time with the kids. Since there is a lot of restriction flying off from the country. So yeah, Shangri La TAH is the place. Its quite pricey, but its totally worth the money spend!. they also have Kids Zone area, and provided with different activities every day. My 7year old daughter join the Scientist activity where they went out and catch butterfly and other insect!. She love it. Fyi, the resort also provide baby sitting service and other outdoor activities Well i can write on and on and on... To summarize being in Shangri TA Resort had given us unforgettable experience. Really recommended. Will definitely return back.

Pros: Great hotel great service...
Cons: Espresso in large mug... prefer small cup size for espresso;-) Italian restaurant was gone... remember it had a great wine list... unsure of alternative western kitchen dining options for couples as we only stayed for one night layover
Okay 4.2
Cons: Unable to change the date nor cancel the booking, due to the coronavirus.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: we loved water bucket
Good 7.0
Pros: We were upgraded because there were only single beds for us that they could join together and our daughter's extra bed had no charge - we were happy with that. The buffet breakfast had a very wide selection, eastern and western which is a huge plus point. The taste of the food was above average and in some cases very nice (allowances made for mass cooking) but the hot chocolate could be improved (I think it was the quality of milk). I loved the fresh pomelo fruit! The hotel activities were also very entertaining for my family especially the cooking classes, paddle boarding and for our daughter, games like the watermelon eating, coconut bowling competition and daily water balloon catapulting and water slides. She had a ball! We also enjoyed the band in the night very much at the lounge, we actually attended every night we were there, they sang most of our requests and we built a good rapport with them. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, we loved to chat to them about their native tribal culture and they were happy to share their family history. Those were the highlights of our stay at Shangrila Tanjung Aru hotel.
Cons: The scenery of the beautiful pool was destroyed by the ugly orange buoys. A suggestion would be to have a separate pool for those who cannot swim and are wearing life jackets and where those buoys would be necessary. I understand that the majority of your clients can't swim, but the stunning pool view was spoilt by the buoys and life jackets.

Pros: The staff and the location

Pros: Location near the airport
Cons: This hotel need to refurbish. Sofa, carpet and curtain were so old and stained. Children pools were so dirty too.. Totally overpriced
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great view to ocean and nice facilities! Best swimmingpools ever!!
Cons: Could’t swim in the ocean due to jelly fish, 2 kids slept in the same king bed and it wasn’t very helpful from the sleeping point of view, no room enough for sleeping. Extra bed would have cost 170 RM per night so quite expensive!
Excellent 8.3
Pros: I have visited this resort a number of times. I always enjoy the fantastic swimming pool facilities, the gardens and the gym. Room is good although beginning to show its age a bit. Staff were busy as it was Chinese New Year but they were generally friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast offered a large choice of foods (many Asian options) however I feel the quality of the food isn’t as good as when I first visited. Nice views from resort.
Cons: Bathroom floor could have been cleaner. Price of the resort is expensive and I don’t feel that it has the 5* exclusivity touch about it anymore. More of a package holiday setting for groups of tourists.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Friendly staff, great place to stay
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Amazing resort with great pools and beautiful garden surrounds, breakfast was amazing and plenty of variety. Rooms are decently sized and clean.
Cons: Pool guards are overly strict, gym was a fair walk at the Sutera Harbour Sister Facilities.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Really nice resort with an amazing pool. A lot of food choices that were not unreasonably priced. Our room was spacious and had a balcony which faced the harbour, this was very nice. The decor was a bit dated. The hotel is by the Sutera harbour which made island hoping very convenient. The Spa facilities was really good too. I will stay here again.
Cons: There were not enough sun lounger chairs by the pool. Although the hotel has a beach and access to the sea, you can't swim here (this was not a problem, just worth noting)

Pros: Pictured seaview from the bedroom

Excellent 8.8
Pros: Amazing pool and great breakfast buffet. Poolside bar staff are very friendly. Oppulent hotel perfect for golfers.
Cons: Didn't think the dinner buffet was good value and it didn't have the 'Fiesta' vibe. We booked a twin room and received an upgrade to a suite but there weren't two beds. Not a locatio n for those who prefer to walk to destinations. Located on a busy highway meaning you need to either shuttle or taxi to everything.

Pros: Nice clean room with hot shower en comfortable bed. Close to the airport.
Cons: Although the booking stated that transport back to the airport was also provided, we could not arrange it because ‘there were to few guests’. Although later on it turned out that other guests did get there transport so this is strange at least. Kota Kinabalu has a beautiful sunset. It is a pity that the sunset terrace is on the 3rd floor, looking onto buildings and not on the rooftop or on a higher floor.

Pros: Great location near tg aru beach , and airport shuttle is free
Cons: breakfast menu
Good 6.0
Pros: Location was the main reason for us choosing this property. Firstly, the property was one of the pick-up points for our marathon event. Secondly, based on previous experience, we know the area has a lot of cheap dining options, supermarket, 24hr grocery, and coin laundry. There's also a nearby mosque for Moslems. The staff are really helpful -- we had to leave 1 day earlier due to impending national lock-down (COVID-19 realted), and the staff helped us get our refund back. Awesome!
Cons: The shower faucets came off loose, there's only one lift, there's limited parking for drive-in guests.

Pros: Best value for money and best location with plenty of parking spaces
