I've just returned from 3 nights staying at this wonderful hotel and would like just like to say there is no better hotel in Penang to stay at. The service was impeccable and having travelled quite often you get to know what genuine friendliness and helpfulness is. The staff are super, just great, the small touches just made our stay, like the fresh fruit in the room, turndown service every night, remembering of names after just one day etc. The list goes on.
The Rasa Wing is the way to go travelling as a couple or with friends - without kids. There were some families staying in the Rasa wing and this was probably the only negative as the kids at times were noisy in the lounge during afternoon tea or pre dinner drinks. Great to have a quiet pool area to relax in, water however is quite warm.
If you can afford an upgrade to a better room do it as the hillview rooms actually face the road and trees, not really much of a hillview. But you don't really spend that much time in rooms to worry.
Chi Spa is excellent, quite pricey for the treatments however the facilities are first class.
Beach not much but that's not the hotels fault. Recommend a private half day tour booked through hotel with I-Tour - ask for Phillip - he was amazing!!!! And so cheap too, RM60 per hour.
Location of hotel for night markets is excellent as it starts just up from the hotel, recommend Jewel of the North for dinner, tasty and clean, and very cheap.
Spice Market Cafe was ok, food was plentiful but not much of an atmosphere for dinner.
All in all an excellent stay and I'd recommend it anyday.
