Hotels in Penang - other areas

Apart of the usual destinations in Penang, there are several good hotels in other areas like  Bayan Lepas, Jerejak, Teluk Bahang and Bukit Jambul . It might be convenient to stay near the airport. Worth a visit in this area is the famous Snake Temple.

Two hotels have to be named in this area:

Equatorial Hotel

equatorial hotelThe Equatorial Hotel is very convenient located. Close to the airport and with the Bukit Jambul Golf & Country Club on your doorstep the Equatorial Hotel is an excellent choice (we go regularly swimming here as this is possible for non guest but you have to be a member).

The hotel is located near the hills with great views over the tropical forest and as the hotel is located 150 meter above sea level, you will see the Straits in between Penang and the Malaysian mainland.

Facilities of the Equatorial Hotel Penang are fully equipped fitness center and weights room and an outdoor swimming pool with waterfalls and Jacuzzi. There are squash and  tennis courts, sauna and spa facilities.

Of course the Equatorial Hotel has a 5 star restaurant specialized in French, Japanese and Chinese cuisine.

Jerejak Spa & Resort

Technically the Jerejak Spa & Resort is not located in Bayan Lepas but it's so nearby I mention it here.

The resort is located on Jerejak island, in between the Malaysian mainland and Penang. The resort is a kind of upmarket jungle resort. with facilities for the whole family.

There are two outdoor swimming pools, facilities for rock/ wall climbing, abseiling/repelling, hiking & jungle trekking, mountain bike trails, paint ball war games, water polo and much more.

jerejak spa & resort penangIf you just come for relaxing, there's a spa and an excellent restaurant.

Getting there is easy. If you come from Georgetown, pass the Penang bridge, and follow the directions to Jerejak Island. Coming from the airport, it's about 10km on the highway from the airport. Follow the signs to the ferry.

The beauty (and at the same time set back) of the resort is that the city with all the activities is a bit far away.

Snake Temple Bayan Lepas

The Snake Temple is a very old temple with quite a long story. Although located a litle far from the main attractions, it is more then worth to give this temple a visit.
