This is one of my favourite resorts, a classic in Penang. Well located at Batu Ferringhi on a good strectch of beach. This is well suited to a family stay with good sizeools and a good kids pool. Great seafood buufets and BBQ,s at the hotels restuarants. All seaview rooms have a great view of the pool and beach and a grat little balconey to relax on.
There is jet ski hire at the beach and massages and its on the door step of the famous Batu Ferringhi night markets.The breakfast buffet is world class. Happy hour at pool bar a must.
We have stayed at this resort 4 times over the last 10 years and whilst a bit over shadowed by its sister resort next door and a bit tired its still a great all rounder. This was highlighted by my recent stay in Penang at another resort on the stretch which emphasised to me even more if somethings not broken dont change it. (i wont name the other resort) .
Great value for money. nice friendly warm staff.
