Set amidst peaceful gardens overlooking the South China Sea and the peak of Mount Kinabalu, this tranquil retreat lies on the doorstep of bustling Kota Kinabalu while feeling a world away. Soak up Borneo’s rich cultural heritage in their lavishly decorated suites and go island-hopping to the surrounding coral reefs from the private jetty.


Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa is just 10 minutes’ drive from the vibrant city of Kota Kinabalu on the northwest coast of Borneo. It lies adjacent to the impressive Kinabalu Golf Course while being a stone’s throw from the Kota Kinabalu International Airport and within easy access of the rugged landscapes and jungle paradise of Kinabalu National Park.
