Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa
Located approximately six kilometres from Kota Kinabalu is Tanjung Aru beach, and the most renowned hotel here is Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa. The hotel is near a lovely beach and the pool has been designed to entice everyone from jaded parents and uninterested teenagers to active little ones. There is a fantastic water-play area complete with water battle stations, balloon launchers, water slides and one of those huge tipping buckets kids just love standing under. There is a separate area with an infinity pool and Jacuzzi where parents can spend a quiet moment before heading to the poolside bar for a well-deserved treat, and where the kids can take it up a notch and indulge in gourmet ice cream.
