Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa has its own private STAR Marina, exclusively for guests. You can set off on a sailing trip around Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, stopping off at one of the five lush islands within it. Or spend a day diving in the clear waters among vibrant coral reefs, considered some of the best in the world. If you’d prefer to stay within the resort, there’s still plenty to do. You can try out watersports like paddle-boarding, jet-skiing, water-skiing, and Hobie Cat trips around Kota Kinabalu’s coast.
Whether you’re taking a trip with family or jetting off on a romantic break, you’ll have lots of activities to choose from at Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa. The whole family will love the pool, as little ones can splash about in the gently sloped area or slide down waterslides – or you get in some leisurely laps of the infinity pool, which overlooks the turquoise ocean. Alternatively, challenge your partner to a game of tennis, or while away an afternoon on the pitch-and-putt course.
If you’re going on holiday to Borneo for a bit of well-deserved relaxation, head to the resort’s secluded spa village. On an idyllic island – joined to the resort via an ocean walkway – this is a peaceful place to retreat. Book a therapeutic couple’s massage, treat yourself to a rejuvenating facial, or try something new with a traditional Bornean treatment.
Watch Asian-inspired dishes come to life in Café TATU’s open kitchen or at one of its live cooking stations. Tuck into noodles, dim sum, pasta or salads any time.
Dine on fresh seafood, sip cocktails, or indulge in a barbecue on the beach at Coco-Joe’s, as you make the most of the lovely ocean views.
Cantonese dishes and other Chinese treats can be found here, in the heart of the resort’s gardens. Get ready to try Shang Palace’s famous dim sum and other locally sourced dishes.
Wander down to the lobby for a drink overlooking the ocean. You can order drinks or pick from a menu of light meals as you’re serenaded by nightly live music.
Grab a scoop of your favourite ice-cream during a pool day, cool down with an ice lolly, or slurp a creamy milkshake.
Based on a private island, this sea-view bar takes design inspiration from traditional Bornean homes. Try locally inspired cocktails as you admire the views, or book the bar for a private event.
Shangri La Tanjung Aru has 498 modern rooms and suites, and each one has a balcony boasting a view of either the blue South China Sea or the vast countryside leading up to Mount Kinabalu. While the decor of each room has been inspired by Borneo’s natural charm, features like soaking bathtubs and a pillow menu make sure your stay feels luxurious.
