FEELING a little wanderlust? A Daycation at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa in Penang could be the escapade you seek.
With overseas travel not a good idea for now, living it up at the luxurious five-star beachside property for a day can be just as rejuvenating.
Priced at RM185 for two persons, the package includes buffet breakfast at the Spice Market Cafe.
Regarded as one of the best morning spreads around, it offers plentiful nourishment for the fun and frolic to follow.
Have eggs and pancakes cooked to order at live stations, then help yourselves to wide selections of cold cuts, salads, cereals, fruit compotes, pastries and breads.
Sauteed mushrooms, beef bacon, dim sum, baked beans and Nasi Lemak are equally welcome this time of day. Though many breakfast buffets end there, Spice Market’s has more.
An Indian corner offers Murtabak, Roti Canai and curries. Maki and Oden items are staples of the Japanese section, while Asian possibilities range from congee to Penang Fried Koay Teow.
Continental delights include Cheese and Onion Frittata, Meat Loaf, Beef Chorizo and Bratwurst sausages. Warm desserts like Bread Pudding or Cherry Crumble complete the line up.
Once full, it is time to enjoy the resort’s world-class facilities as the Daycation package comes with pool and garden access. Enjoy leisurely moments under shady rain trees, or splash about the vast free-form swimming pool.Guests also get 20% off F&B orders.
The poolside Pinang Restaurant and Bar has delicious offerings like the Ocean Grill set served over a hibachi. A refreshing Paradise Cooler is great after a swim.
Resort general manager Elaine Yue said, “With ongoing global concerns over Covid-19 and travel restrictions imposed by some countries, many are reluctant to travel overseas. So come enjoy a day in the resort.”
The Daycation package, billed as the first in Penang, is also available at neighbouring Golden Sands Resort at RM160 for two persons with similar entitlements.
The deal runs daily until May 15. Walk-in anytime from 6.30am and check out at 8pm. Another perk is 20% off treatments for both Chi, The Spa and garden reflexology.
