The Rasa Ria Resort is located not far away in the breathtaking scenery of the Sabah region around Mount Kinabalu. This region is characterized by rainforests, which also surround the hotel and thus provide optimal conditions for the in-house Orangutan Nature Interpretation Center. As the orangutan is a symbol for Sabah and because of the threat of deforestation, this center takes care of the "forest people". Also, the white sandy beach of Pantai Dalit will surely attract you to take a walk on the beach or to sunbathe. For children, there is a fun club in the resort that offers some exciting activities for the little ones. The city center and its numerous shopping opportunities are 35 minutes away. Kota Kinabalu International Airport can be reached in 40 minutes.

If you want to relax by the pool, but at the same time the little hunger comes, the Pool Bar offers Asian cuisine and snacks for every taste.
