Pros: The experience was exceptional. The staff was friendly and helpful. The family room was just like i expected, like the one in the photo. I took the one which was children friendly. 1 King size bed separately with connecting door and the kids room was kids friendly with decoration - have 1 bunk bed and extra pull over mattress. Has 2 large bean bags and Wooden cabinet mean which is kids friendly. My 2 kids, 3 and 7years really love it. The room can actually fit 4adults and kids. I took the one with Sea view. The view was breathtaking. On arrival, the room was ready with compliment drinks, fruits...so welcoming. Got small size robes meant for kids and slippers too. I am actually amazed with the in house toiletry kits - it was all from L'Occitane brand! What a Luxury! Not to mention the interior of the building - extraordinary - High Class. The main reason we came to the resort was for the water park, as we want to spend quality time with the kids. Since there is a lot of restriction flying off from the country. So yeah, Shangri La TAH is the place. Its quite pricey, but its totally worth the money spend!. they also have Kids Zone area, and provided with different activities every day. My 7year old daughter join the Scientist activity where they went out and catch butterfly and other insect!. She love it. Fyi, the resort also provide baby sitting service and other outdoor activities Well i can write on and on and on... To summarize being in Shangri TA Resort had given us unforgettable experience. Really recommended. Will definitely return back.

Pros: Great hotel great service...
Cons: Espresso in large mug... prefer small cup size for espresso;-) Italian restaurant was gone... remember it had a great wine list... unsure of alternative western kitchen dining options for couples as we only stayed for one night layover
Okay 4.2
Cons: Unable to change the date nor cancel the booking, due to the coronavirus.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: we loved water bucket
Good 7.0
Pros: We were upgraded because there were only single beds for us that they could join together and our daughter's extra bed had no charge - we were happy with that. The buffet breakfast had a very wide selection, eastern and western which is a huge plus point. The taste of the food was above average and in some cases very nice (allowances made for mass cooking) but the hot chocolate could be improved (I think it was the quality of milk). I loved the fresh pomelo fruit! The hotel activities were also very entertaining for my family especially the cooking classes, paddle boarding and for our daughter, games like the watermelon eating, coconut bowling competition and daily water balloon catapulting and water slides. She had a ball! We also enjoyed the band in the night very much at the lounge, we actually attended every night we were there, they sang most of our requests and we built a good rapport with them. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, we loved to chat to them about their native tribal culture and they were happy to share their family history. Those were the highlights of our stay at Shangrila Tanjung Aru hotel.
Cons: The scenery of the beautiful pool was destroyed by the ugly orange buoys. A suggestion would be to have a separate pool for those who cannot swim and are wearing life jackets and where those buoys would be necessary. I understand that the majority of your clients can't swim, but the stunning pool view was spoilt by the buoys and life jackets.

Pros: The staff and the location
Cons: The breakfast most be intentional

Pros: Very convenient location right at the airport (was a bit tricky to find though: maybe some signs would be in order?). Very nice and cozy bed with power outlet etc., just perfect after a late night flight or if having an early one in the morning. Had free coffee and tea, as well as nice massage chairs.
Cons: Nothing to complain about really! Perfect spot for what it is made for.
Good 6.0
Pros: I landed at about 12.30am. Without having to drag my luggage to hail down a car to town, this is a pretty good place to have a rest. Oh yes the massage chairs! Pretty comfy. Clean drinking water and teabags are provided too!
Cons: The showers were not in perfect condition. The shower head holder is loose and i had to hold it by myself. Would be nice if both showers are provided with shampoo and soap. There was a snoring guest but i think that wasn't something they could do about.

Good 7.0
Pros: Close to the airport so perfect for someone waiting for a connection flight overnight. Room is clean and tidy. Good value for money. 24hrs convenient store downstairs.
Cons: There is a stuffy/sweaty smell in the room. One of the light bulbs in the toilet was also flashing so it was left turned off and dark inside the toilet during our stay. Due to the short stay, we didn't bother to contact staff to get it fixed.
Good 7.0
Pros: Location and comfortable place to stay
Cons: No coffee or tea provided
Good 6.7
Pros: The room is clean, and there is a balcony, we’d love it.
Cons: The location is a little bit far away though the grab is convenient, the spend of transportation is still high than our expectations. And we don’t like the building as well, which is a little bit dark.
Mediocre 2.0
Pros: none
Cons: room's not too big cockroach infested poor sanitation poor cleaning poorly trained staff for that kinda price can get a better room
Good 7.0
Cons: It's a bit of a maze to get to the actual units. One of the swinging chairs was broken. Location was rough, not walkable. We had to catch a Grab to get anywhere.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Fantastic staff, spacious, clean room. Well equipped. A number of quality cafes and groceries at the ground floor.
Cons: The hotel is brand new, there is construction yard just in front of the building. Lifts are still covered with a protective tape. Close to the airport, noise from airplanes.
Good 7.5
Pros: Convenient to airport and train line, small but open gym, nice restaurants in area. New building, virtually empty. Lovely staff.
Cons: Room is ludicrously designed: swings instead of chairs, extremely inconvenient bathroom, no storage area, random steps up and down, implausible light switch placement, door whose alarm randomly goes off—just a lot of small, very aggravating design choices.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: it's nearby airport therefore it is easy to commute

Excellent 9.0
Pros: The accommodation and location for me very good for the money value. Walking distance to the beach, Perdana park and near the pickup area for Butm participants.
Cons: Breakfast menu. Maybe need to improvise the recipe so it will give a better taste. Since they just had only 3 option or menu for breakfast, Im expecting some stunning dish actually.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: We like the pool! We also appreciate all the staff who were so friendly and helpful.
Cons: There was an incident on our last night where guests smoked inside the room and prompted the fire alarm to sound off. This happened several times the entire night, which woke us and made us worry. The hotel didn't handle this situation well.

Excellent 8.3
Pros: Very near to the airport and also a very clean house.
Good 7.0
Pros: There was a young boy who attended to us when we checked in, he was enthusiastic and prompt. There is always someone at the reception/ office/ security. Room was comfortable and good value for money. Location close to railway station and airport but far from the KK city centre. We thought the area around Boulevard Hypermart is so much nicer than the city centre, with better quality food and coffee places.
Cons: Staff in the morning when we checked out was cold and more interested in her phone. She was prompt and efficient though. Although the inn was located in a residential area it is next to a road and you can hear car engines, and roosters often - bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper! This bnb is not on Grab! So we always had to use a proxy (Hung Xing Restaurant) to get back from wherever we went.

Pros: Great location near tg aru beach , and airport shuttle is free
Cons: breakfast menu
Good 6.0
Pros: Location was the main reason for us choosing this property. Firstly, the property was one of the pick-up points for our marathon event. Secondly, based on previous experience, we know the area has a lot of cheap dining options, supermarket, 24hr grocery, and coin laundry. There's also a nearby mosque for Moslems. The staff are really helpful -- we had to leave 1 day earlier due to impending national lock-down (COVID-19 realted), and the staff helped us get our refund back. Awesome!
Cons: The shower faucets came off loose, there's only one lift, there's limited parking for drive-in guests.

After she coming back asked us to changed the room.. 'ba kamu pindah la bilik depan'i am so annoyed to hell. No manner and proper language to do so.
