Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa has been honoured as an ASEAN MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conference and Exhibitions) Venue

The ASEAN Tourism Standards Awards had seven categories. The ASEAN MICE Venue Standard Award was introduced this year to recognise and honour outstanding ASEAN businesses and destinations that comply with the standardisation of tourism services
essential for enhancing the quality of tourism products and services, in addition to responsible management practices among stakeholders in the region’s tourism industry.

“It is truly a great honour for Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa to be recognised as an ASEAN MICE Venue Standard destination. We have always advocated constant upgrading of physical setting, technology and services as spelled out in the ASEAN MICE
Venue Standard criteria. This award is the recognition and encouragement of our efforts to continually improve available facilities and services, especially for meetings and events, so that we remain competitive,” said Elaine Yue, the resort’s general manager. “We always
strive to be innovative with our meeting options. Our signature meeting offers include “Sunglasses at Work” and “Green Meetings”, providing meeting delegates an alternative to their usual corporate events through the option of minimising the environmental impact of
their activities.”
