Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 11 Hotels in Batu Ferringhi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 March 2012

This Hotel truly has it all ! Wonderful location, wonderful grounds and gardens, wonderful staff who honestly just cannot do enough to make sure the guest has a truly memorable stay. As previous reviews advise , it is well worth the upgrade to the Rasa Wing, you get to have the most wonderful Breakfast in the Ferringhi Bar and Grill which really gets your day of to the perfect start. Then from 3-4pm High tea is served as well, delightful sandwiches and Pastries along with the most devine scones with of course Jam and cream. Then if that isn't enough from 6-7pm canapes and cocktails/Beer/Wine and spirits are all served free of charge. The Rooms are spacious and very well maintained, we had a Rasa Wing Hill view room which was perfect for anything you would require. The staff are wonderful and treat you like they want you to come back, nothing is to much trouble for them. There are themed Buffets most nights with Saturday night being the seafood feast!! Then other nights there are other just as impressive feasts. Really this Hotel has it all you can keep busy all day with activities or you can just relax and do nothing.

This hotel is really excellent and the staff care about customer service. The rooms were spacious, a little dated, but clean. The TVs were updated while we stayed there so are now flat screen. The only down side was the supplement we paid for a seaview was wasted (and after we had specifically asked whether we would be able to see the sea) as we had a view of the pool and had to hang off our balcony to get the sea view. That said the hotel made sure that we got this supplement refunded. The spa facilities are wonderful and the pool is clean and well maintained. The food was varied and excellent. We found the actual location a bit disappointing however. The locals say that it is going downhill as the customers change and alot of the 'original' Malaysians are moving away and more Arabs, Lebonese and Indians are moving into the area to visit and live. There are few reasonable and good restaurants to eat at outside of the hotel (infact I became ill having eaten at a Lebonese restaurant) which is disappointing and means that we are less likely to return but we can't fault the hotel. Great staff and if you don't want to leave the hotel... you don't need to as there are various themed evenings every night and activities are laid on.

we stayed here in february for one week and the experience from start to finish was top class.it was a reallylong journey getting there but well worth it in the end.the staff were freindly and the room (garden veiw) was beautiful.we arrived about 6 pm and after checking in we showered and walked into batu ferringhi,about a 10 minute walk.we found a restaurant that looked pretty full so we got a table had a couple of drinks 2 starters and 2 main meals absolutely delicious ,got the bill and it came to £12!! coming from yorkshire this was welcome to penang big style!!!.the choice at breakfast is the best ihave ever had something for everyone even the fussiest eaters.the food and service was superb.the beach was beatiful but you could not swim in it because of jellyfish which was disappointing but what a lovely pool we spent our time around there .we went on a trip around penang (half day)great guide and also did penang hill also very good.the only down side for us was the night market if you went into BFyou had to walk through itgot sick of saying no thanks every 2 seconds but if you want bargains this is the place for you.mybrother came here before me and recommended mr foo on the beach for a massage i had 2 they were really good .the best places we ate at on a night were living room,boatman and jewel of the north great food and so much cheaper than the hotel.my only complaint about this hotel was the price of beer £4.80 for a smallish glass,yes it is 5 star(and it is) but i am not paying that for beer .all in all this is the best hotel i have stayed in.....up until our next week when we flew to borneo and stayed in the rasa ria in KK WOW .we would definately stay in a shangri-la again this week and the following week in borneo were damn near perfect!!!
