Beautiful grounds are scattered with century-old trees and tropical flowers at this classic resort.
Reflecting Shangri-La’s world-renowned style, grace and exemplary service, the Rasa Sayang has long been a favourite in Penang. Set on Batu Ferringhi beach, the resort has an air of luxury, peace and tranquillity; yet you’ll be moments from the lively market and just 20 minutes from historic George Town. There are two pools here – one is exclusively for the use of Rasa Wing guests over 16 years old – as well as the secluded CHI, The Spa, and a 9-hole pitch and putt golf course.
The resort’s restaurants have everything from fine dining to refreshing poolside snacks. If you stay in the Garden Wing, a buffet breakfast will be served at the Spice Market Café. If you opt for a Rasa Wing Room, you can choose to dine either here or enjoy an à la carte breakfast at the Feringgi Grill. The Feringgi Bar is open throughout the evening and is an idyllic spot for pre or post-dinner drinks. For an al fresco lunch or dinner, head to the poolside Pinang Restaurant and Bar, which serves light meals and drinks and has views out over the sea and a daily happy hour. At the Fun, Interactive, Play Lounge (FIP), chill out and enjoy the laid-back ambience.
In the Garden Wing, choose either a Deluxe Garden View Room or Deluxe Seaview Room. If you opt for a Rasa Wing Room, you’ll have access to the exclusive lounge, where afternoon tea and evening cocktails are served, alongside a whole host of other privileges such as express check-in and use of the Rasa Wing Pool.
