Desa Bayan, set in the large township of Sungai Ara, is a five-block, 18-storey freehold apartment complex completed in 2005. Residential units have an average built-up area of 700 sf each, and come with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms – a suitable size for singles, couples and small families. The complex is guarded by 24-hour security, and also provides car park bays for residents.

Although Desa Bayan does not have the recreational facilities found in some other apartments and is situated relatively far from Georgetown, it offers a peaceful environment to live in, and a strategic location especially for those working in the south side of the Penang Island, being just 10 to 20 minutes by car to the Batu Maung and the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone, and less than 3km to the Penang International Airport.

As Desa Bayan is situated in a matured township, there is also no lack of amenities in its surroundings. Right opposite the apartment, there is the SK Mutiara Perdana, while slightly further away are schools like SRJK (C) Chung San, SMK Sg Ara, SK Bayan Lepas and SK Bayan Lepas 2, as well as the Desa Ria Market, Penang Skills Development Centre, Bayan Baru Market and Food Court, Giant Hypermarket, Sunshine Square, Elit Heights and Subterranean Penang International Sports Arena (PISA, previously known as SPICE).

Transportation is convenient as well, be it by private cars or public buses. Desa Bayan is near to main roads like Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Jalan Tun Dr Awang and Jalan Dato Ismail Hashim, which lead to other parts of Sungai Ara, Bayan Lepas, Relau and Bukit Jambul, eventually joining the Jelutong Expressway. Buses 302 and 308 pass by Jalan Dato Ismail Hashim, reachable through a short walk from the apartment.
