It is quite some years since I last stayed at Penang Mutiara Resort. I am planning a trip back there now and was amazed that this place is closed. Why is this so ? Everything about this Hotel was a great experiance. Rooms were spacious and well appointed. It didn't matter if you had an ocean facing room or a... More

It is very sad to know that the Mutiara is still closed. This was the best hotel I have stayed in. Stayed here 2-3 times a year for many years. It was like a second home to me and all the staff were like my extended family. It is regretful that this hotel has closed and confusing as to why.... More

We were planning to visit Penang Island and luckily our travel agency chose this hotel for us. It was like a dream. The room is enchanting, simply beautiful, and we had a wonderful beach view from our room on the 14th floor. The breakfast was excellent, wide choice and very tasty food. Easy access to the sea few steps from... More

We stayed in the Mutiara for our honeymoon in July 2000. What a fantastic experience we had, a true 5star hotel with all the trappings. It would be hard to find hospitality like it today, it always gave me a chill to walk into the lobby pass all the fountains and into the beautiful lobby. The restaurants were fantastic and... More

We are returning to Penang in a month, will be 10 years since we stayed at the Mutiara Beach. Such fond memories, each morning at breakfast we were greeted by a group of singers ushering us in, the children loved it, singing something Choo Choo, ha great fun. Staff amazing. I can remember it all lit up with fairy lights... More

We stayed practically every year from opening, until it's closure back in 2006. We still miss the hotel, and it's superb staff - many of whom we watched grow from shy teenagers, to full-fledged, confident managers. It was a real privilege. The recent reviews make me smile - an element of truth in the comments, but obviously not when the... More

We had 5 nights here and the whole experience was first class. The food was superb and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. The concierge service was very knowledgeable and connected, so making outside restaurant reservations etc was all done for us. I cannot recommend this hotel high enough.
