Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa is located in Malaysia's Kota Kinabalu, at the northern tip of Borneo. Set within 25 acres of landscaped gardens on a peninsula surrounded by the waters of the South China Sea, this deluxe property is only 10 minutes from a sprawling capital and the international airport.
It consists of the four-storey Tanjung Wing and the seven-storey Kinabalu Wing. Using natural timber and indigenous fabrics, all 492 beautifully appointed rooms open onto a private balcony and offer panoramic views of the gardens, the sea and the outlying islands.
Spread throughout the resort are seven restaurants and bars offering a gastronomic selection of local and international cuisine.
Few other destinations in Asia offer such a wealth of recreational facilities: a water play area with slides, swimming pool with tapered shoreline and infinity section for adults, a beach and private marina, tennis courts, a nine-hole pitch and putt golf course, Cool Zone (Kids Club), Leisure Centre and Health Club.
At the STAR Marina, one can choose to go sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing or take a day trip to the island for swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving. Additionally, the marina also offers private charter services, fishing and diving courses and equipment for rent.
Guests also get to discover the life-enriching, soul-soothing and enduring effects of the spa lifestyle at the resort’s CHI, The Spa, a signature spa brand inspired by the mystical legend of ‘Shangri-La’ captured in James Hilton's book, Lost Horizon.
The spa village consists of 5 single Garden Villas, 3 Couple Villas and an open Yoga Pavilion surrounded by the South China Sea, allowing a tranquil ambience for total relaxation.
