We found ourselves relaxing and indulging in the Afternoon Tea at the elegant Rasa Wing Lounge in Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa, situated in the tourist belt of Batu Feringhi. Our previous visit to this beautiful resort was for the buffer dinner at the Spice Market Cafe, but this time we opted for a relaxing afternoon in the lounge. The lounge was decorated with timber wood panelings and wide ceiling drop down glass with a view overlooking the beautiful landscaped garden.


Once you step into the majestic lounge, you will come across jars filled with tit-bits beautifully displayed on the table. You can have a nibble on the pistachios, peanuts, cashew nuts and the cookies.



The Rasa Wing Lounge has a nice and peaceful ambiance with comfortable sofas and chairs. You can browse through the selection of reading materials such as magazines, novels and newspaper while sitting here sipping your afternoon tea.

The Afternoon Tea comes with hot and cold beverages, sweets and savories. The food was beautifully presented in a lovely three tiered tray. The first of it consists of many varieties of assorted cakes, the second tray were the scones with accompaniment of fresh whipped cream and cut fresh strawberries, and the lowest tray was the savory.



As for the beverages, it comes with a wide selection of tea, coffee, freshly squeezed fruit juices and soft drinks. For the tea, I chose to have the Classic English Tea out of the many varieties. The tea was freshly brewed from tea leaves and served in the elegant Rosenthal Monbijou tea set. Not many places provide tea leaves and this is my personal winning point of this high tea. A sieve was provided to separate the tea leaves, and the tea was indeed strong and full of taste.



Scones with fresh strawberries and whipped cream were simply delicious. For those who prefer to fill their scones with jam, there many individual bottles of flavored jam to choose from.

The savory simply spoke for itself. It was just plain delightful tucking into these mini tea time savories, including the Madras Mango Chicken, Vegetable Antipasto with Aioli and the Tuna Nicoise Salad. All ingredients used were very fresh, and in my opinion, the Madras Mango Chicken really stood out.



For the plate of snacks sweeter than words can say, we were served the Pistachio Marbled Cheese Cake, Almond Cake and the Chocolate Truffle. My particular favourite was the Cheese Cake, very delicious cheese cake while not too overpowering.

While my son had the fresh orange juice, hubby opted for the freshly brewed cup of Cappuccino.

The hospitality and service was excellent and definitely a great place to pop by for the tea treat. The Afternoon Tea goes for RM55++ per person and I personally think its worth given the quality and classy ambiance.

Wow, 55+! Definitely a high price to pay for tea. :) One day you should try the E&O high tea too! I think it should cost about the same but it has a larger variety and it’s a buffet. :)

Iamthewitch – Thanks for recommending…will like to try those from E&O too.

March 16th, 2009 at 11:41 am

How delightful! I always thought E&O was the only place for a proper afternoon English tea in Penang… can always trust Rasa Sayang to up their game!

I like the tea sets and the scone…….

Addiction to coffee comes when I look at the cup of cappuccino ! I will go make another cup of coffee again if it is not during this late hour.

March 16th, 2009 at 10:44 pm

Hahaha! U can read my mind! Recently I have baked some raisin scones. Although not as nice as what is served at the Rasa Wing Lounge, we LUV it very much. It is very simple and easy to make scones as compared to other cakes and pastries. Do u want to try baking some too?

I like to congratulate you on your blogs on Malaysian food esp. in Penang. Keep it up ! I am someone abroad who miss all the fine food you manage to tantalise us.
Just hope to be back soon to try all these various recommended haunts !
Your photos are too realistic !
Dont drop in here on an empty stomach ! could cause ciaos ! :)

Felt really relax just reading your review. Reminiscenes of the famous English Afternoon Tea in the gardens of the Sri Carcosa.
As a tea person, whole leaf tea is way way better than tea dust … truly A+.

March 17th, 2009 at 9:46 am

Thanks for the recommendation! I also enjoy having high teas at E&O :) Their pastries and sandwiches are very good.

Best if can get a table next to the window to enjoy the view of the sea.

March 17th, 2009 at 10:58 am

So enjoyable and relaxing, hmm…syiok!

Sonny – Thank you very much for your compliment. Will try to upkeep my blog and bring more food outlets to share with you. Do let me know when you are back in Pg.

Big Boys Oven – You will automatically relax with such nice ambiance and surroundings…that’s for sure.

One Big Mouth – Totally agree with you…the winning point to a good afternoon tea is the tea brewed with tea leaves rather than tea bags.

Damien – I have plans to visit E & O too. Hope it is just as good.

Little Inbox – It was indeed an enjoyable afternoon…I got what I paid for :)

isn’t the rasa wing lounge for in-house guest only? any advice/ tips on how to have afternoon tea there?

May 25th, 2009 at 1:44 pm

We simply love a good cup of hot tea or a nice glass of iced tea. It soothes away the stresses of the day or centers a quiet conversation. Tea is great.
