Borneo’s Hottest Resort, Shangri-La Tanjung Aru, Launches Exclusive Whisky Club

November 20, 2008 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Shangri-La Tanjung AruInsiders know that the secluded tropical retreat of Shangri-La Tanjung Aru is the best resort in Malaysian Borneo. It's not just the sparkling beaches and endless views of coral islands in the South China Sea. The resort offers a plethora of activities (from deep sea fishing and scuba diving to biking, petanque, and an impressive Health Club). And the myriad culinary options mean you can enjoy everything from Italian to contemporary Asian. Shangri-La Tanjung Aru is also known for its nightlife: Sip a cocktail while the sun dips below the horizon at the Sunset Bar, then head out for a lively evening at Blue Note, a popular hotspot with nightly music.
