"Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort ~ Dissapointed" Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort Tip by anodize222

Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort, Kota Kinabalu: 3,330 reviews and 31 photos

I was totally dissapointed with the beach side, this is because it looks totally different from the photo showed by Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort website. The photo looks so good as the water is so clean with a nice bay across the beach side, however this is not true because the water is so dirty and the bay is covered by the sea. Therefore, snorkeling is impossible at the beach. There are a lot of jelly fish at the so-called private beach too, that's why u will find a notice board to cautioned guests of applying vineger when struck by jelly fish.

They also have Tanjung Garden for you to have yoga and fish feeding activities, however the fish pond looks dirty as well. I guess this is the reason not many people will hang around that area.... as u will find most of the guests at the swimming pool and hotel lobby....

Unique Qualities: The only great things abt Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort is their gym/spa facilities and the dinner buffet which cost u about RM100 per person which I find one of the most expensive in Sabah.

Address: 20 Jalan Aru, Tanjung Aru, 88100 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
Price Comparison: most expensive
