The Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa takes its name from an old Malay folk song that also means 'a feeling of love'. It is little wonder where this beautiful resort takes its inspiration from, as guests will fall in love with its luxurious setting.
The resort has played host to some of the world’s most recognisable names; from royalty and prime ministers to celebrities and the rich and famous. Through the years, ours guests have included 'Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous' host Robin Leach, romance novelist Barbara Cartland, Hollywood celebrity Stephanie Powers, former Cambodian King Norodom Sihanouk and former Chinese Presidents Jiang Zemin, Li Peng and Hu Jin Tao.
With a long heritage in Penang, the Rasa Sayang has borne witness to the state’s transformation from a free port to an industrialised one, and as an island getaway to a rich heritage city. Perhaps Leach’s famous 'champagne wishes and caviar dreams' toast best sums up the resort’s promise of indulgence to its guests.
As a reflection of our commitment to continuously providing outstanding facilities for all our guests, we are happy to announce the commencement of our Garden Wing Room renovation programme, which will take place from 1 April to 17 December 2014 (both dates included). When finished, the refurbished rooms will be enhanced with innovative features to enrich the guest experience.
All measures will be taken to minimise any disturbances that might bother guests. All renovation work will be confined to the Garden Wing and conducted only during normal business hours. During this time, the Rasa Wing and all other facilities, including the restaurants, Health Club, beauty salon, CHI, The Spa, main swimming pool and meeting rooms, will remain operational and accessible to all guests.
The resort will continue to operate as usual with uninterrupted service. Every effort will be made to reduce the impact of this programme and ensure that all guests have an enjoyable stay with us.
