The Cenang mall located right on Pantai Cenang is the main duty free shopping destinations near the beach. Spread over two acres of land, the Cenang mall is a two storey building with a contemporary design and sleek layout. This plaza has an assortment of more than forty-five duty free shops and businesses. The mall directory includes factory outlets, souvenir shops, liquor and tobacco stores, a supermarket and a pharmacy.
A number of cafes and restaurants are also available to keep your hunger at bay.

The Amara Wellness Centre is a good stop to relax and soothe tired muscles after a day of workout on the beach. Within the complex you will also find an ATM and currency exchange services. The Cenang mall is a short walk from Pantai Tengah and Pentai Cenang and it is used as a refuge by those who want to escape the summer heat or the monsoon rain.
