The décor takes its cue from traditional Malaysian architecture. The Garden Wing utilises hues of blue with earthy and citrus tones whereas the Rasa Wing has a more contemporary Asian feel with gold, deep red and beige tones.

Families will love the kids’ pool, Adventure Zone and play areas while adults can indulge in the nine-hole golf course, adults-only pool and CHI The Spa. Extra activities on offer include the fully-equipped gym, yoga and tennis courts plus tai chi, table tennis and beach volleyball.

The dining scene is exciting with options ranging from the western-style Feringgi Grill to the Spice Market Café, which pays homage to Penang’s heritage as a culinary meeting place and historic centre of trade.
