Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa

“Lovely beach in front of the hotel. Very long and broad. Unfortunately plastics is everywhere on it, despite the effort of the hotel staff to clean it in the morning. Food is great, the structure is lovely. Our room was nothing special but it was the cheapest possible.”

Borneo Beach Villas

“Get the beachfront villa. Perfect for a relaxing getaway with family. Basically spent the whole stay enjoying the seaview, exploring the private beach as well as using the private pool and jacuzzi. Modern facilities in the villa and well kept. Friendly staff. Near Gayang Restaurant famous for seafood, but tastes so-so in my humble opinion.”
