Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa, Penang
Had a blast!
The check in and check out went smoothly and a lovely staff named Veronica, took the extra effort in making sure we were satisfied with the room and she even saw us off when we checekd out. Just lovely and FYI, BEST hotel to spend your birthday!!! Would definitely stay here again

Indulge, relax and rewind. You'r worth it!
Shangri la service was amazing. Nothing was too much, e.g., my husband only brought shorts and they lend him long dress pants for a formal dinner. We also loved the English traditions such as afternoon teas and evening cocktails which were given free of charge to Rasa guests. The hotel was generous with their food and wine servings. The spa was also a highlight.

Service and facilities were great

Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa, Penang
Very Good8.0
It's all about the pool
We visited 3 years ago and were pleased that nothing much had changed. The Shangrila Rasa Saiang has a very relaxing feel. The pool and gardens are wonderful. They make you relax. The staff are always helpful. We like the buggy to take you up the road to the night markets. We like the way you can stroll through the beach gardens to the town or have a massage or a drink in the sister hotel next door. The bedroom and bathroom are a good size and quality however the bed is incredibly hard. We were slightly disappointed on our return, with the strength of the cocktails in the pool bar and a very boring pizza although the salads are good. When we visited in February/March there were lots of english people our age which was fun for us, however this time not so many. We realise it depends on tge time of year you are visiting. There were lots of families in big groups which I found a bit overwhelming. Breakfast buffet is always good however it is interesting to see how western food is in the minority. Overall we love the hotel and will return. A great place for a few days away. One more thing. Great massage places near the beach much cheaper than hotel.

It was a nice long weekend.
The property is nice and well maintained. Rooms in the Rasa area could be updated, but it was still comfortable. Overall service was very good with one or two exceptions. Oddly you will need to make reservations for a dining table on busy weekends. I would give 4 out of 5 stars. No more, no less.
