PARKROYAL Penang ResortPenang
A tranquil palm-tree-fringed hotel with a pool just for adults and one for the kids (complete with water slides galore), Parkroyal Penang has rooms that start out at just RM281, which translates to a supremely awesome, family friendly deal. A well manicured lawn of green grass with plenty of sun loungers is all that separates the main hotel complex from the sands of the beach, which makes it such a great seaside vacation spot. For kids there is an onsite play centre offering cool activities like T-shirt painting and jewellery-making, while adults can line up an indulging treatment at the hotel’s spa or head to the gym or tennis court to burn off some calories. Most of the hotel’s 309 rooms are kitted out with private balconies, and 21st century comforts such as a 32 inch flat screen TV with cable channels and free Wi-Fi, plus extra touches like a complimentary fruit platter.

Bayview Beach ResortPenang
Rooms at Bayview Beach Resort Penang start at just RM231, which is quite a steal given its right-on-the-Batu-Ferringhi-beach location. Sister property to Bayview Hotel in Georgetown, what helps this reach top ranking on our list of 5 Best Batu Ferringhi Hotels Under $100 is the fact that not only is the price point just right, the facilities offered are pretty comprehensive. They include a gym, spa, six restaurants and bars, tennis, squash and volleyball courts, plus there are five swimming pools (including a meditation pool) available. Families are especially well-catered for since the hotel has an indoor play centre as well as an RM1.6million kid’s play pool, complete with water geysers, rainbow misters, slides, tipping buckets, water cannons and water mushrooms. Meanwhile, the 360 guestrooms have private balconies that overlook the bay and come with a mini fridge, IDD telephone, colour TV with satellite channels and en-suite bathroom. Read More...
Holiday Inn Resort PenangPenang
You will not believe that rooms at the four-star Holiday Inn Resort Penang come in at under RM281 per night - but this hotel is equally trendy and comfy, with a location just a few steps from the beach. Leisure-wise, expect to find a large pool, gym, spa, games rooms and kid’s club, plus management can arrange for activities such as jet skiing, banana boat rides, aqua-aerobics, and even cooking demonstrations! The hotel’s 358 guestrooms are divided into two blocks – the Beach Wing and Ferringhi Tower, linked together via a sky bridge.

Baba Guest HousePenang
Baba Guesthouse by the Sea, at an entry price of just over RM50, is by far the cheapest option in this list, yet still offers a fun and comfortable place to stay next to the beach in Penang. Perfect for backpackers, the 20 guestrooms feature private balconies offering unobstructed ocean views that will allow you to commune with nature. Keeping things simple, most units come with just ceiling fans and access to a clean and compact communal bathroom, but you can book a stay in a higher category room with air conditioning and a private water closet.

Lost Paradise ResortPenang
While Lost Paradise Resort is not the first hotel along the Batu Ferringhi strip to grab inspiration from its rugged terrain and successfully incorporate nature into its design sense, it certainly is one of the cheapest to do so in its class. Forget the cookie-cutter design sense of hotel chains – this five-star stunner’s interior is culturally driven instead, offering rooms that are kitted out with heavy antique wooden furniture, mosaic tile floors, sandstone bathrooms and ornate latticework fixtures. Helping it immensely in making the cut of our 5 Best Batu Ferringhi Hotels Under $100 is the fact that room rates per night start out at a very inexpensive RM250. Adding to its exclusive edge is the fact that there are just four villas on its 90,000sqft grounds, housing a total of 16 Balinese- and Minangkabau-style suites, surrounded by century-old Banyan and Takoma trees. There are four room categories, each starring the latest technology such as free Wi-Fi and a flat screen TV with cable, and onsite attractions include a private beach, pool, basketball court, gym, reflexology centre and children’s playground.
