The Penanga has a perfect blend of need and luxury. After arriving very late in Georgetown to find our room at the new Asia heritage was double booked we were seeking calm, pleasure, rest and an allover sanctuary. We found the Penanga the next day. Reception was generous with there time and efforts to help. The last minute room required a fair bit of effort for the hotel and staff to accommodate me and my 3 children. They were understanding and genuinely wanted to find a solution to each of my needs.
The rooms were exactly the tonic to a day in Penang. Decor allowed you to know where you were while the finishes encouraged all of us to feel rejuvenated and rewarded for making the trip. Others have describe the rooms better than I could. For us the time spent in the rooms was for sharing and recovering.
The lap pool, the jacuzzi, were just the start of our daily wind down. The staff became friends to the kids (9, 11, 14), the coffee was the best so far in Malaysia/Singapore, the grounds were peaceful and the perfect escape from the streets while maintaining a connectedness to the surrounding amenities.
I can recommend the penaga to anyone who hopes for that balance between local yet cosmopolitan. Authentic people offering you the opportunity to enjoy every element of your time in Georgetown.
