Fodor's Expert Review Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa
20 Jalan Aru, Tanjung Aru, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, 88100, Malaysia
Sprawling across 25 acres of meticulously landscaped gardens, the Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa embraces the natural beauty of the Borneo setting, and locally sourced woods and fabric are everywhere. All 492 rooms feature private balconies overlooking either the South China Sea or Mt. Kinabalu. Guests can choose to spend their day splashing around the extensive system of slides and pools, getting pampered at the stellar CHI Spa, practicing their swing at the 9-hole golf course, or venturing away from the resort to explore the breathtaking surroundings. Among the seven dining options, Peppino's Italian restaurant and dim sum at Shang Palace are major draws. End the day with live entertainment and light refreshments at Borneo Lounge and Bar.
