A review of the Rasa Sayang Resort in Penang

If it’s a holiday in Malaysia you’re looking for, and just want to get away from it all, you could do no better than to book yourself in at the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa in Penang. This exotically located retreat is the perfect place to unwind and relax. This article will provide a review on such a place.


Penang state is made up of Penang Island and the strip of land facing it, called Seberang Perai (formerly Province Wellesley). The Shangri La Penang is situated on the north-west coast of Penang Island by Batu Ferringhi Beach. Beaches Long, white, sandy beaches characterise this idyllic part of Malaysia, a world removed from the hustle and bustle of the capital, George Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site.


Rasa Sayang prides itself on being a luxurious and iconic beach resort. Surrounded by green rolling hills, and with many of its 304 rooms facing the beautiful ocean, it delivers on all accounts. Minangkabau style in the rooms Carved wood and colourful fabrics define the traditional Minangkabau style that provides a feeling of tranquility throughout each room.
Suites are also available, scattered around the tropical grounds, including all the modern amenities that one might desire.


Mix of cultures The complex mix of cultures that have contributed to providing Malaysia with some of the world's finest cuisine can be found in Penang.
The Spice Market Café The Spice Market Café utilises on this incredible mix of influences, and offers some mouth-watering food. Feringgi Grill In a more contemporary Western style, the Feringgi Grill offers exquisite fine dining in a spectacular setting. Private rooms are available for either 10 or 20 people at a time, and are perfect for intimate and larger gatherings.
The extensive wine selection will also complement any occasion.


Signature spa After all, the delectable food head to the enormous signature spa, the largest of any Penang resort.
Private health spa villas Eleven individual private health spa villas situated throughout the resort will take care of your every need and rejuvenate you in preparation for more relaxing down at the beautiful beach. Rasa Sayang Resort is indeed a great place for those wanting to relax on their holiday. As with all five-star resorts, the cost can be expensive, but the service and attention to detail surpass this.
