We stayed for 5 nights and had an enjoyable stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful overall and the location is great if you have a car to get around. Not far from Batu Ferringi and only 15 minutes to Georgetown.
Rooms are good size but a bit jaded.
We stayed in the lower rooms facing the beach - view was good but to exit the hotel you had to get the lift to level 7, walk past the swimming pool/restaurant and the get the lift up to level 8. This is the reception area. From here you have to walk down 2 flights of stairs to the underground car park (NO LIFT). With an 18 month old baby and cases this is not ideal.
This did not really spoil the stay though overall.
The Gym (although hard to see how this can be described as a gym) contained one treadmill, a exercise bike and a sit up bench. In a small mirrored glass room, with an air conditioner (but you have to go to the shop to ask them to turn on each time). This process was long winded so I actually used the gym without the AC on. At least it was easier to build up a sweat..!
The one real disappointment was that when we used the pool there were no pool towels left. This was 2:30pm in the afternoon. Surely a hotel of this size has sufficient towels?
As most guests use the pool in the morning the chairs / beds were vacant but no towels to lay on or dry down.
Shame as it meant that we had to get the lift and walk to our rooms still wet.
Only stayed for 1 night, we tried to check-in early but the room wasn’t ready so we asked if we could upgrade to a room that maybe ready… the receptionist said none of the rooms will be ready until 2pm and gave us a voucher to go get a drink from the bar. The receptionist came over and said your room is now ready and we have given you a free upgrade as the room you booked wouldn’t be ready for another hour, so we got an ocean view room which was nice. The breakfast is nothing to talk about, but there are a number of places to eat and drink around the hotel. Location is ok by the sea but you really can’t swim in the sea as there are tons of Jellyfish in the water.
my wife and I stayed in a sea facing room with two balconies both with fantastic views of the Andaman sea.The staff are very friendly and always ready to help with any request.The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious with air conditioning and fans.The pool is clean and easy to access it also has great views, the breakfast was excellent.My wife and I will be returning there next chance we get.
Stayed 5 nights and was very pleased with our decision to stay at this hotel. Our room was comfortable, however, noise from the corridor and the room above was noticeable from time to time. Our timing was somewhat unfortunate as it coincided with school holidays so the swimming pool was filled with children. The hotel provides a shuttle bus into Georgetown and to the night market at Feringghi, however the local bus passes the front door and is very cheap - just make sure you have lots of small change (2RM to either spot).
"Very spacious 1 bedroom apartment, with seaviews. "
This was a self-catering, fully contained 1 bedroom apartment, it was very spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. The location was very close to Gurney Plaza but we had to take a taxi there each time. There was a street 'foodcourt' close by too. The room was quiet, except every day at 5.45am and 4.45pm, right next door, there were loud Muslim prayers that went on for 2-3 minutes each time..
This small stretch of sand in northern Penang, between Georgetown and Batu Feringgi, is 45 minutes by taxi from Penang International Airport (PEN) and 10 minutes from the Georgetown city centre. Sweeping views of Tanjung Bungah and the Strait of Malacca can be found across the highway at Pearl Hill.
