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.
