Penang, Malaysia and Borneo
The Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Resort is one of the leading 5-Star hotels on Penang Island. Located on Batu Ferringhi beach just 20 minutes north of Georgetown this is a classic Shangri-La property with all that the luxury the brand stands for. Set in 30 acres of wonderfully landscaped gardens with palm trees and tropical flowers adding a tropical scent, the Rasa Sayang is split into the Garden Wing and more lavish Rasa Wing and is home to 304 guest rooms.
There are two swimming pools, one exclusive to Rasa Wing guests who are over 16, a trademark Shangri-La Chi Spa and a 9 hole pitch and putt course. The resort’s five restaurants range from fine dining establishments to refreshing poolside snack outlets. The Feringgi Grill, open to Rasa Wing residents is particularly noteworthy. The dishes reflect Malaysia’s varied cuisine covering authentic Malay, Indian and Chinese in particular.
