Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa sits on an unspoilt 25-acre South China Sea island, just 10 minutes from the centre of Kota Kinabalu where the airport is located.
This Malaysian resort boasts a fantastic spa, found on its own island with 8 island villas, as well as a private marina where you can try your hand at a variety of watersports, diving or from where you can jump on a boat to visit the surrounding islands. There is also an activity programme where you can get involved in table tennis competitions, yoga and pilates sessions, tennis coaching, and much more.
Children will be kept well entertained with the kids club (suitable for 5 years plus) and the lively water play area which even has a water balloon launching station, and where adults can join the fun.

The bedrooms are a treat for families, with a suite sleeping 5 but handily split into 2 adjoining rooms so parents and kids get their own sleeping areas, and little guests are welcomed with gift packs to settle them into thier holiday home.
