Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa is one of the best Malaysian luxury resorts

HE Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa is one of the best Penang luxury hotels and needs little introduction. It has set the benchmark for others to follow time and again. The grande dame is back with a stunning facelift - brighter, younger, sassier, and with the signature CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La, a splendid retreat with 11 private villas and a Yoga Pavilion. Add to this, lush gardens, acres of beachfront, three pools, and a par-3 executive golf course, and you have an all-inclusive mini destination.

Rasa Wing rooms are generous in size with a flat screen TV, a DVD player, an extensive work table with Broadband, and a balcony featuring an indulgent all-weather soaking tub with views out over the Rasa pool and the bay. Traditional earth tones dominate with bright daubs of colour. The bathing area is separated from the bedroom by a glass wall. The roomy shower offers the additional allure of pressure jets and Aigner toiletries.

The new-look Garden Wing has its own child-friendly swimming pool, water sports by the bushel and Wireless Internet in the gardens. While the resort works admirably for honeymooners and the smart set, it is also a top Penang resort for a relaxing retreat. Conferences and small meetings are a doddle and there is fine dining galore.

CHI, The Spa is a dedicated wellness enclave tastefully textured with landscaped gardens and water features. Staff will consult with you to work out a customised menu, be it exotic scrubs, wraps or oils. CHI, The Spa is well worth a visit for a hour-and-a-half treatment or a longer half-day therapy. A highlight is the three-hour “Paradise Found” involving a Himalayan bath, wrap, a signature massage and facial. CHI, The Spa has finally put Penang spas on the map, with style and flourish.

It's easy to see why Rasa Sayang stands out as one of the best Malaysia spa resorts. It is certainly the leading contender in Penang.
