Beautiful hotel with spacious rooms and excellent facilities. Good for family as well as business travellers. I especially enjoyed the bay window doors that opened to the balcony. Service is good and staff polite + helpful. Rooms are of high standard like any other Shangri-La hotel. If you are adventurous, there are plenty to do on the beach. The breakfast that comes with the room package has a good variety of food choices too. Definitely a better choice compared to G-hotel, where the room windows cannot be opened. Nice and breezy in the late evenings. Certainly my preferred hotel in Penang.
