If every morning could be as laid back as this
While Shangri La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa won numerous praises for being a family friendly resort, there is no hinder to spend a romantic getaway here as the resort equally has plenty activates and segregation (adults only pool, adults only evening cocktails) for couples.
We would recommend to spend at least 2 nights at Shangri La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa to fully enjoy what the resort has to offer.
