Penang Luxury Hotels & Resorts

Where to Stay in Penang

Dominated by the 300sqkm Penang Island, the site of the earliest British settlement on the Malay Peninsula, Penang has a variety of accommodation options. Lebuh Chulia and Love Lane, crammed with cheap hostels and hotels, make up the heart of Penang’s backpacker enclave; meanwhile mid-range deals can be had along Jalan Penang where there’s a string of high-rises.

However if you’re looking for swanky top-end properties, Penang plays host to a wide variety of sprawling luxury ventures. These expansive uber-resorts are usually concentrated in Batu Ferringhi: featuring cool, state-of-the-art guestrooms with luxury amenities, these tricked-out grande-dame hotels are designed to impress. Ranging from the posh geometrically-shaped Hard Rock Hotel Penang awash in swathes of bright colours and the rambling grandiose Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La in Batu Ferringhi to the colonial-era throwback Eastern and Oriental in Georgetown, these opulent establishments hold their own against some of the best in the world. Fronting golden sands with landscaped lawns and a full programme of activities and sports, these lavish lodgings offer stellar views while enjoying truly opulent settings.
