Shangri La Rasa Sayang Resort & SpaFerringgi Beach
Divided into two wings (with a separate driveway and entrance for each), the five-star Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa is a pretty impressive property spread out across 30 acres along the famous Batu Ferringgi beach.The whole hotel has been fitted out in traditional Minangkabau style - in fact, in line with this, the hotel hosts a time-honoured Malay musical performance every Friday outside its Garden Wing lobby.We love the five-storey Rasa Wing: built in 1973, it has an exclusive feel, offering guests little extras such as afternoon tea, all day cocktails and evening canapes.This side of the hotel is home to Ferringgi Grill, an award-winning, fine-dining restaurant, plus the property also plays host to five other restaurants and bars.

Hard Rock Hotel PenangFerringgi Beach
With busts of The Beatles in the lobby and autographed Sex Pistols albums in the corridors, there is little doubt about the four-star Hard Rock Hotel Penangs theme - its extravagant Vegas-esque vibe is a refreshing departure from traditional beachside hotels.Everything spells stardom, from the giant music-related murals and rock star memorabilia to the open-air lobby with a reception/bar combo.The hottest action revolves around the energetic Hard Rock Cafe, which acts as regular host to live bands.Perfect for entourage wannabes is the sexy, see-and-be-seen-in freeform pool, but we also dig the for-hire mountain bikes, poolside dancing sessions, and canoe racing and pool-pillow fights.
