Why we recommend Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort

Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa offers great accommodation but also a host of activities; the 18-hole championship golf course is very impressive and the property’s location on the beach means that watersports are plentiful. For a touch of luxury, we recommend staying in the Ocean Wing with private lobby, swimming pool area and exclusive breakfast.
