"Beneath a majestic canopy lies the jewel in Penang's crown."
The trees rise up above you. Majestic and lush, the foliage reaches for the ground, like falling rain suspended in the form of vibrant green leaves. These century-old trees accentuate the grandeur that surrounds you at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa, Penang.
The resort is replete with a sense of history, place and tradition. Its distinctive Minangkabau architecture houses even more artefacts of Malaysian culture. You feast your eyes on the artfully-arranged traditional jewellery, batik-printing moulds, coral sculpture, and signature items from the prolific Malaysian kitchen. With so much cultural history, it’s no surprise that Penang’s capital, Georgetown, has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Rooms are split between two wings - the Garden Wing and the Rasa Wing. The deluxe Garden Wing is inspired by the natural surroundings of the resort’s lush gardens, the nearby emerald hills and the shimmering blue sea. Peranakan and local motifs add a charming touch to the décor of the wing, creating a sumptuous yet down-to-earth ambience that immediately invites weary travellers to walk in and experience a warm Malaysian welcome. The attractive characteristics of being family-friendly yet luxurious and opulent yet inviting allow guests to feel relaxed at their home away from home. Rediscover your inner Shangri-La today with a stay in our Garden Wing. Designed with the sophisticated traveller in mind, the Rasa Wing is set amidst the lush Shangri-La gardens with a separate driveway and entrance, featuring some of the most elegant and spacious accommodations in Penang. The Rasa Wing offers guests a choice of 115 guest rooms, with each room offering a different view, depending on its location.
It is the resort’s indigenous beauty that keeps you grounded and connected. Set amidst soothing landscapes, the famed CHI, the Spa, invites you to continue your sojourn into your inner self. You emerge rejuvenated, reborn. Your spa programme, tailored for you, is only the beginning of what the resort can offer. Heading for the Par 3 Executive Golf Course, you anticipate the excitement of the game ahead.

Penang’s equatorial climate means high heat, high humidity and high rainfall all year round. There are two main seasons – the dry season from December to March and the wet season from April to November. However, Malaysia is affected by two monsoon seasons so wet weather is always a possibility. Most people opt to visit Penang during the dry season, when rainfall and humidity are at their lowest.
