Best luxurious hotels in Penang, Malaysia


The best luxury hotels in Penang have one thing in common: when it comes to pleasing guests they go above and beyond the call of duty. Each offers a truly unique stay experience, in terms of interior design, onsite facilities, in-room amenities, and even food offerings. Plus, what makes them even more appealing is the fact that each hotel is set so close to the beach, making it easy to spend some time sun-tanning on the beach or even indulging in water sports. Traveling in Malaysia is quite convenient since it has some major bus terminals and express buses are the preferred mode of transport here. Tickets for which can be booked online from redbus.my


Eastern and Oriental Hotel
Eastern And Oriental Hotel, a five-star Penang property founded by the Sarkies brothers in 1885, is steeped in history and gives the impression of containing a world within itself. A true homage to the British-Raj era, when it first opened it had the longest seafront (spanning 902sqft) of any hotel in the world, and went on to welcome world famous personalities of the time including Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham, Douglas Fairbanks and more. Set along Lebuh Farquhar, it is the only hotel in Georgetown with prime sea-facing real estate, making it well placed for sightseeing opportunities, allowing guests easy access to several Penang landmarks such as Fort Cornwallis, the Penang State Museum and the 1903 Victorian-style City Hall.

Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang
Divided into two wings (with a separate driveway and entrance for each), the five-star Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa is a pretty impressive property spread out across 30 acres along the famous Batu Ferringgi beach. The whole hotel has been fitted out in traditional Minangkabau style - in fact, in line with this, the hotel hosts a time-honored Malay musical performance every Friday outside its Garden Wing lobby. We love the five-storey Rasa Wing: built in 1973, it has an exclusive feel, offering guests little extras such as afternoon tea, all day cocktails and evening canapes. This side of the hotel is home to Ferringgi Grill, an award-winning, fine-dining restaurant, plus the property also plays host to five other restaurants and bars.
