Alain Borgers feels fortunate to be in Kota Kinabalu in what he calls “exciting times for a growing destination”, going further to share his enthusiasm about being in the right place at the right time, envisioning a great future in tourism in Malaysia generally, and in Sabah specifically.

“There has been a lot of growth (in Sabah and Malaysia) and we have a very unique product here in the Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria. I am very passionate about the destination and am looking forward to sharing this passion with our staff and our guests. Definitely, the resort has so much to offer - one of the best things being the people. The Sabahans are some of the most naturally friendly and hospital I’ve ever met”.
