Tucked in between the large resorts of Golden Sands and Park Royal, and not to mention the hundreds of souvenir stalls lining the main road on Batu Feringghi, the Lone Pine Hotel is like a much welcome oasis in a parched desert. Even after its recent renovation, where a brand new 5 storey block was added to the existing 2 storey-high blocks and old bungalow, it remains quietly understated.
It is probably one of the best choice for resorts in this part of the island, if you are looking to be away from the crowds in a typical beach resort.
Being an architect, i especially like the textures of the brickwork and the perforation blocks used throughout the resort as well as the lush hanging landscaping flanking the entry foyer to the hotel. The green lawns surrounded by the low rise blocks of rooms with quaint wooden louvred windows reminds me of the scale of a Malaysian Kampong (village). And the balcony bathtub in our deluxe room with a view of the sea was quite a nice touch as well.
The breakfast, with a mix of the international standards and local Penang favourites (char koay tiau, freshly cooked on the wok upon request) was one of the best I have had in any hotel.
