Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Shangri-La Rasa Sayang is located just next to the Shangri-La Golden Sands. But it is a lot less lively and much calmer than its neighbour. It has two swimming pools including one forbidden to children. So it can welcome couples as well as families.

    Location 4.14 /10

    The Shangri-La Rasa Sayang is located on the North Northeast coast of Penang, along the Batu Ferringhi beach. It is the most beautiful beach on the island, all things considered. The Bayan Lepas International Airport, located in the Southeast of the island, is located about a forty minute drive away, at a distance of 25 miles. George Town, the capital, is 12.4 miles away, or a twenty minute trip.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The Shangri-La Rasa Sayang is divided into two buildings connected between them. The Rasa Wing has five floors and the Garden Wing eight floors. Families will be better in the second one since the facilities for children are in the same location, while couples should choose the first one for more peace and to use the swimming pool reserved for adults. The hotel is built in a bow shape facing the beach. Each building has its own reception area. Each swimming pool is just as pretty as the other one. They are surrounded by a beautiful, well-maintained garden.
    The building has a spa called Chi The Spa, the name common to all the Shangri-La hotel spas. Set up in the bottom of the garden, it was designed as a little Malaysian village and the eleven massage rooms are located in little villas. The atmosphere that reigns is entirely conducive to relaxation. It offers a large number of treatments that will please even the most demanding people.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The building contains 304 rooms including 189 in the Garden Wing and 115 in the Rasa Wing. The standard room is bright during the day thanks to the different tones of beige that give a beautiful luminance. At night, the bedside lamps give a warm tone to the room. The dark wood furniture matches very well the setting. There is nothing to say about the equipment: air conditioning, television, safe, mini-bar with tea and coffee kit, direct line for international calling and room service 24h a day. The marble bathroom opens towards the room. The double washbasin is in marble, as well as the separate shower and bathtub. Finally, we find bathrobes and welcome products.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The hotel has two restaurants, not including the two bars where you can snack on little things during the day. The Spice Market Cafe is a very nice place, decorated with different spices from all over the world. It offers a buffet for the three meals of the day with international and Asian cuisine. The chefs are behind a large glass pane and cook in front of the clients. The outdoor terrace is very pleasant and has a garden view. The second restaurant, the Ferringi Grill is in the Rasa Wing. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner. Finally, the Penang Bar also allows clients to have a light lunch.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The beaches are all public in Malaysia and the Batu Ferringhi beach is no exception. That is why the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang has not set up any deckchairs in the sand. This beach is considered the most beautiful one in the island. Even if it is pleasant, it is not a postcard landscape. The sand is of good quality, but unfortunately you find litters that blemish the landscape. In addition, be careful when swimming, jellyfish regularly come up to the edge of the water. It is the downside since the water is rather warm. The location is not very windy but rather lively due to the jet skis and other parakiting. The hotel has a water sports club offering different activities like jet skiing or water skiing.

    To know

    Lots of shops and restaurants are located nearby the hotel.
    In October 2007, the building did not have a kids club. The opening date of the Adventure Zone has not yet been scheduled. It will offer many activities, in addition to the swimming pool's water slides. Located between the hotel and the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang, it will gather children from the two buildings.

      Open since 1948, the Lone Pine is a little structure similar to a boutique hotel. It was the first hotel built on Batu Ferringhi. This calm location is favourable for relaxing. On the other hand, the beach is rather noisy due to the jet skis that run all day long.

      Opened in 1990, the Park Royal is a big hotel ideal for a family trip, given the size of the kids' club. All the common areas as well as the rooms are nicely decorated. Even if the building has a large capacity, the land is big enough to be able to maintain privacy.

      The Holiday Inn of Penang dates back to 1979 and it shows. Of course, renovations have been done since the opening, but the location is still outdated, dark and noisy. You will find a lot of families there, the swimming pool is bursting with children !
