Shangri-Las Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa on Penangs Batu Feringgi Beach has completed a MYR $32 million room renovation programme for all its guestrooms and suites in the Garden Wing.

The renovation took over eight months to complete and involved major changes to all 189 Garden Wing rooms. The new room design by Mapsdesign Pte. Ltd. reflects the resorts tropical location.

The new rooms feel more open and even larger, with neutral elongated floor tiles replacing the carpets and neutral tones throughout with splashes of colour and texture to highlight and complement the surroundings.

There is a two-seated sofa in every room that converts into a sofa bed. Every guestroom and suite has a private balcony on which to relax and enjoy the view.

All Garden Wing rooms are installed with LED lightings, energy-saving key cards and air conditioning that switches off when the balcony doors are opened as part of the hotels long-term commitment to reducing its carbon footprint.

The renovation has brought in several categories of guestrooms to cater to the family market. The rooms range from 42 to 105 square meters.

The Deluxe Seaview rooms have views of the Andaman Sea, while the Deluxe Family Rooms measuring 60 square metres have one king-sized and two single beds.

We are very excited and confident that the renovations will herald in a new level of comfort and service that travellers have come to expect of Shangri-La, said Suleiman Tunku Abdul Rahman, director of communications. The scale of this renovation shows our commitment to maintain the hotels reputation for providing excellent services and being at the forefront of hospitality in Penang and Malaysia.
