Rasa Sayang means a ‘feeling of love’ in Malay and the resort certainly inspires it. At the time of its opening in 1973, it was the largest and most luxurious of the region. It’s therefore not surprising that many famous people have stayed at this tropical haven, including romance novelist Barbara Cartland and former Presidents of China.

It was the first ever resort under the Shangri-La group of hotels worldwide and has retained its charm ever since. The staff at this property is never found without a smile or a helping hand and they never fail to impress even the most seasoned traveller. As a leader in attracting tourists to Penang in the 70s, Rasa Sayang is now an iconic landmark to both locals and international visitors alike.
