The Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa is a great starting point for morning walks into the National Park, which is conveniently located behind the hotel grounds. Within the premises of the resort, guests can enjoy an incredible lookout over the sea, a game of golf, or take a boat ride around the property, traversing the island’s shoreline.
