Penang offers a fantastic choice of accommodation to suit different tastes and budgets, from luxury hotels, boutique hotels and serviced apartments, to budget hostels and beachfront guesthouses.
George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site
George Town has become a favourite with the Conde Nast set with its eclectic range of boutique accommodation which includes beautifully restored traditional shophouses and hip, cutting edge hotels, with plenty of local flavour. Staying in the WHS is perfect for exploring George Town on foot, bicycle, moped or trishaw.
Penang’s famous Batu Ferringhi beach strip is home to 3 to 5 star beach resorts, with plenty of water sports, shopping, nightlife and eco-tourism activities close at hand. For an unforgettable “kampong” experience, there are homestays available in the smaller fishing villages close by.
Strategically located between the city and the beach, Gurney Drive’s (Persiaran Gurney) high-rise resorts offer breathtaking panoramas of the sea and city. For bright lights, world-class malls, and nightlife, Penang’s iconic waterfront boulevard is where the action takes place!
South East Coast
The South East Coast is a stone’s throw from the island’s high-tech parks, international airport, golf club, two bridges (that connect the island to the mainland) and largest shopping mall. There are plenty of business-standard hotels to choose from as well as convention centres including the Subterranean Penang International Convention and Exhibition Centre (SPICE), as well as future developments such as the Penang Waterfront Convention Centre (PWCC) and the Penang World City (PWC) convention centre.
Effective 1st June 2014, a local council fee of RM3 per room/night for 4 star hotels and above and RM2 per room/night for 3 star hotels and below will be imposed and payable to the hotel upon check in.
