Time for Refurbishment”
Rooms are Tired with old fashioned furnitures. there is no writing / dressing table in the room but they have threw in a table and 2 chairs which looks like what from the 80s in the room. Hair Dryer - was expective a better hair dryer with higher watts Limited TV Channels - other 4 star hotels does provide netflix in room Service is good but not consistent. Some of the Pool Side bar staff are great but some are snob. For the price charged, we had higher expectation on both service and room environment.
About the best hotels in Penang (Rasa Wing)”
The Rasa wing is superb. Excellent attentive staff. Rooms are great and very well serviced. A pool just for the Rasa Wing - with no children under 16 :)- . And there is the gym and spa . Complementary tea time and cocktail time ( 17:30 - 19:00) . There is a breakfast for the Rasa Wing though the Garden Wing breakfast is 100% better. Wonderful gardens. Downside : a) do not swim in the filthy sea! b) Georgetown is a 30 min cab ride away - n.b : use the Apps GRAB for taxis - a lot cheaper and a lot better cars !
Fantastic service as always ”
The customer service were excellent in all departments as usual. Very courteous and helpful. Buffet breakfast was fantastic with big spread from Western to Asian and local dishes. Food were fresh and tasty. Room was big and tidy. However, this time the air conditioning blower fan was too loud and the ceiling fan speed control was not working. Overall, we still enjoyed our stay at the hotel.
Perfect in every way.”
Fantastic hotel - excellent staff. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, everything was perfect. Beautiful room overlooking the ocean. Comfortable bed, tea and coffee on tap. Particularly enjoyed the Pinang, Beach Bar. Ravi and team made our 3 nights unforgettable. We will return soon.
We stayed in a King Deluxe Sea View Room in the resort Garden Wing. The room unfortunately didn’t provide much of a ‘Sea view’ due to the large trees within the grounds. Although not a major issue, I had hoped that we could spend time on the balcony watching the sun set. The are two restaurants and a smaller pool bar serving smaller bites. The standard and variety of the food was very good. The pool is centrally located with plenty of sun loungers. The large tree canopy provides excellent respite from the sun. The grounds of the hotel are large enough for you disappear away from any pool excitement and relax/sleep the day away. Occasionally we were served chilled water and fruit skewers which was refreshing. There are plenty of masseurs around should you require a foot massage during the day. The hotel is directly on the beach which is long but narrow. There is a roped off area for people to swim in but the local water sport providers pay little to no heed of this when returning craft.
Hotel looks a bit tired. Car park area and the road into hotel had many potholes and not well maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful. Swimming pool was not well maintained, filled with leaves and looks a little dirty. Environment was pleasant. Rooms were clean. Breakfast selection was just enough, though not as widespread as its other chain like Cebu Mactan which is also a resort set up. Overall, a pleasant stay and experience but it is overpriced for what you get. Massage packages in hotel - you can get half the price at the neighbouring 5 star hotel (walking distance) which is rated above Chi in Shangrila.
Delightful venue in Penang”
The Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Resort is beatifully located at the North tip of Penang. Perhaps a bit far (in terms of travel time, not km) from the major sightseeing venues but still, most spots are reachable in under 1 hour. The Hotel itself offers some delightful F&B venues, the Pool Grill and bar for the casual, but delicious dining at very fair prices, the Ferringhi Grill for that special event with haute cuisine and excellent service. The spice Market is an all day dining venue which we frequented only for the plentiful choice breakfast; also here very good quality and wide choice of food selection from Western to local to Chinese, Japanese and Middle Eastern. The Beach is a bit narrow and as it is not part of the Hotel, could do with a bit better maintenance, but is still worth that long beach-walk and an occasional dip in the sea.
Perfect Place in Penang”
Just wonderful staying
Good old maintain 5 * hotel”
The place look normal from outside but once inside u will be surprisingly happy with all the facilities
The best in Batu Ferrighi by far”
This is my fourth time staying here but first time at its Premier King Room that has a bath tub on the balcony. I have patronized the restaurants many times as walk-in guests everytime I am back in my hometown. I have tried almost all of the "better hotels" in Batu Feringghi and in my opinion Rasa Sayang is still the undisputed number one.
Great hotel in a good location”
4 stars on value and location due to a one star lower ranked sister hotel just next to it sports nicer beach, is closer to markets and restaurants, and is nearly identical in everything to this place. So if choosing between the 2, I'd tend to lean towards Golden Sands rather than Rasa Sayang. But that said - the staff at Rasa Sayang is beyond excellent, hotel wonderful, the trees near pools magnificent, and that bakery not just excellent but also incredibly low priced for a hotel... any hotel. Breakfast offers very large selection but tends to be busy after 8.30. Very nice hotel overall, and will likely stay there again.
Nice old hotel, great hospitality, professional staffs, but me and my partner not really happy with the toilet. The smells horrible after each flush. Anyway, we had good stay, good food, calm environment.
I experienced great service at Shangrila Rasa Sayang. The breakfast buffet was excellent - everything you need is there! From western to local delicacies to little touches of elegance. Room was well-cleaned and smelled fresh. Pool area / garden service was excellent! Only comment is we wish the Resort activities were more visible. We enjoyed the cooking class 1x and would have loved to join the turtle activity but we didn’t see the notice at start of our stay. We also paid for seaview but our room was before a massive tree that blocked our view of the sea. Nevertheless very glad to have stayed at Shangrila Rasa Sayang.
Over-all a great stay. Breakfast buffet has everything and proximity to night market provides a good variety for the adventurous eaters. My only complaint is that we paid extra for a room with the sea view. Although we were given a room facing the sea, a huge tree was blocking our view.
Beautiful Hotel and nice pool”
The room is big and clean. The staff are friendly. The swimming pool is nice. The room service is excellent. The night market in front of the hotel is good. The breakfast is full of liability. Will come back to stay again. But must book it early to get the lower price.
The hotel looked old and tired from the outside, but the rooms are newly renovated. The property itself was huge and there are lots of space for the kids to run and swim. Beach was also just in front of the hotel
Well appointed hotel with good facilities, but breakfast and restaurant service really poor. ”
I stayed at this hotel 20 years ago. It has remained well appointed, but the service has deteriorated terribly. The breakfast and restaurant service was very poor. Every meal was a challenge to get served. It really spoilt the stay.
Breakfast spread is awesome, room came with a gorgeous view of the sea and pool and service by staff is splendid. The only thing that wld be nice to have is a little upgrade on the tv channels. Or a smart tv. Otherwise, everything else is great.
Great luxury resort”
Highly recommend staying at the Rasa Wing- afternoon tea and cocktail hour with pre dinner canapes were amazing. Rasa Wing pool was really relaxing. Breakfast buffet had an amazing selection- personally preferred it over the a la carte option (though that was nice as well). The staff were incredibly helpful and polite. Can't wait to stay again
Friendly staff, clean and big room, with excellent beach! Very well-maintained garden with lots of green, an excellent venue for a relaxing vacation. Other than the delicious food offered in the resort, there are many food outlets within walking distance offering different varieties of food. Cheers!
