Came to Penang for a wedding dinner at a nearby hotel, took a gamble and stayed at Lone Pine. We were tired of the same drabby thick carpets and dark walls of the 'usual' 5 stars nearby...
We knew were will not be disappointed even as we were parking our car. The parking lot is like a botanical garden, with tall shady pines and brick lined pavements. The lobby was spacious and clean.
My room, an intermediate deluxe, was modern, white-walled with a huge bed. The balcony had a bathtub with a view of the ocean. The washroom and wardrobe was fashionably designed with sliding doors to ensure privacy when need. They even provide complimentary (free to take home) sandals for the beach and sarongs and Thai - style umbrellas for beach visits.
The breakfast buffet was at a seafront bungalow, spacious and carefully laid out. The pool is simple with a smaller pool for children.
There is a gym, as well as games room.
Every corner of the hotel is great for a photograph.
A small stain on the otherwise extremely satisfying stay was that we were locked out of the hotel room as the battery of the lock mechanism died. It took about half an hour to sort out.
Highly recommended. More
