Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort & Spa in Malaysian Borneo invites guests to enjoy the most important meal of the day with the ultimate breath-taking view, overlooking the majestic Mount Kinabalu and lush Bornean coastline. The 'Breakfast with a View' package invites guests to trek through the Bornean jungle, 90 metres above sea-level, to enjoy a Champagne breakfast overlooking Malaysian Borneo. A professional ranger will lead the hike, carrying a handwoven wakid (traditional Sabahan carrying basket) filled with fresh breakfast produce.
Visitors will trek through the tree tops, crossing a canopy walk on the way, knowing that they are closer to reaching the summit as they see the day's first light breaking through jungle's ceiling. A truly sensory learning experience, their expert guide will show them native flora and fauna such as long tailed macaque monkeys, deer, squirrels, hornbill birds and 30 species of butterflies.
Guests will know they have reached the end of their journey when they see the spectacular view of Mount Kinabalu that awaits them. Upon completing their climb, they will be greeted with cold towels to cool them, a bottle of Champagne to further heighten the remarkable view and a delicious breakfast of pastries and fresh seasonal fruits from the local markets.
As they descend from the summit, guests will be lead along a secret trail to the private honeymoon lagoon, so called as its entirely secluded and only reachable via the jungle path or by kayak. They will be able to absorb the silence of this private beach, exclusively theirs, before their ranger leads them out on their kayak towards the turquoise waters of Pantai Dalit beach.
