Batu Ferringhi Hotels

Batu Ferringhi is by far the popular beach of Penang. Over the years the typical beach holiday lovers may have found a new paradise at Langkawi. But the beach is still popular. Many major 4 and 5 star hotels are nowadays build right at the beach.

With George Town's inclusion into UNESCO World Heritage, many travelers spend nowadays more time in the heritage area but Batu Ferringhi is still a major attraction.

Lone Pine Hotel

The Lone Pine is the oldest of all hotels in Penang. It is located right at the beach and breathes the old colonial days atmosphere. It is here you move away from the busy city, markets and other activities. If there is one place you will love, it is the Lone Pine Hotel.

The hotel is especially great for those who want to have a quiet and great place to stay.

Golden Sands Resort

The Golden Sands Resort is located next to the Lone Pine but couldn't be more different.

Golden Sands Resort PenangWhere the Lone Pine is a perfect getaway from the hectic Penang/Batu Ferringhi, the Golden Sands is the ultimate family hotel, especially if you bring young children.

We went there to have a look. What we saw was not just an all smiling staff at the desk but a staff at the pool. They do not only keep an eye on the pool activities but organize water games for everyone.

And in case you want to explore Penang without your children, the hotel has a baby sitting facility.

We think the Golden Sands is the best choice for families with young children. It's probably not the best choice for couples who come for some privacy (Lone Pine would be the better choice).

The restaurant offers an excellent cuisine of Western and Malaysian food.

Hard Rock Hotel Penang

The Hard Rock Hotel has opened its doors in 2009 and became an instant success. Of course, part of the success is due to the name of the hotel itself and the world wide branches. Here too, you will enjoy your favorite rock music with the walls are decorated with famous rock stars.

The hotel itself has 250 guestrooms all with Wi-Fi connections, iPod docking stations and 32-inch LCD screen TVs.

Hard Rock Hotel Penang

The location at Batu Ferringhi is not surprising. After all, Batu Ferringhi is Penang's most famous beach area.

Although the Hard Rock cafe gets plenty of praise, you might want to consider trying to get a room away from the Hard Rock cafe which with a bar band will make noise until late at night.

Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort Penang

Shangri la rasa sayang resort penangIf you have never been to Shangri-La, this is your chance. The Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort Penang is one of the top end hotels in Penang and not for nothing. It is here where you find deluxe luxury, yes, deluxe luxury.

We went to check the hotel and we were very impressed with what we saw. Staff was very helpful and willing to show us rooms and garden.

How about the rooms? Well, as you can expect for a 5 star hotel, all the luxury you can wish for. Shangri-La has taken service really to the next level.

Holiday Inn

The Holiday Inn has to be mentioned. If you are used to the Holiday Inn, you will find exactly what made the hotel world famous. Top quality rooms, excellent service, great views on the Andaman Sea, perfect swimming pool.

Now, to be perfectly honest with you, I like the Holiday Inn, but it not much different from other 5 star hotels at Batu Ferringhi. Top hotel, top notch service.
