If you are looking for some old-world charm, The E&O Hotel is the original luxury hotel in George Town and by far the most famous hotel in Penang.
The original building dates back to the days of the British colonial era and has been the temporary home of many a famous guest over the years.
This luxury heritage hotel offers an ideal location to explore the old part of the city with many of the tourist attractions, dining and entertainment venues just a short walk from the hotel entrance.
The E&O offers luxurious accommodation in a range of suites in either the Heritage Wing (which had an extensive restoration in December 2019) or the Victory Annexe opened in 2013.
The Victory Annexe has the cheapest Studio Suites, while the Heritage Wing offers a wider choice and some of the most expensive suites in Penang.
This luxurious beachfront spa resort is located in the popular beach resort of Batu Ferringhi in the northwest of Penang Island at the eastern end of the beach set in 30 acres of tropical gardens.
304 guest rooms and suites are housed in two separate wings - the Garden Wing and the Rasa Wing.
If you want the best, the more exclusive Rasa Wing should be your choice.
This wing of the resort comes with a higher level of indulgence and privileges with added extras such as complimentary high tea, and pre-dinner snacks and drinks at the Rasa Wing Lounge.
This is where you will also find the adults only swimming pool, exclusively for the use of adults staying in the Rasa Wing (the main adults and kids pool is in the Garden Wing).
