Where to Stay in Penang

On my recent visit to amazing Penang, I had the great pleasure of staying in one of the best hotels around. Sunway Hotel Georgetown is a beautiful hotel located within the buffer zone of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Georgetown.

We actually arrived Penang in the evening and everyone was quite tired after almost a full day of traveling. But when we got there, we got such a warm welcome from the Sunway Team that it lifted everyone’s mood. Some of the guys actually found the energy to go out and grab burgers at one of the many restaurants near the hotel.

The Rooms

I was tired and couldn’t be happier to be shown to my room. What a treat that we stayed in the club level rooms. The rooms are nice and modern with features such as Wi-Fi access to a fast internet, a flat screen TV, safe, desk, and coffee making machines. And club rooms are located on high level floors which means we had a stunning view of the city from our windows.

The Club Lounge


Staying in the club level rooms also gives us access to the club lounge, located on our floor, where we can take our breakfast in a more intimate setting. Early evening cocktails are also available from 5pm.

The evening refreshments consists of free flowing wine, beer, selected cocktails and canapés. And yes, we took advantage of that… and let’s say that any photos taken during these rendezvous are not fit to be posted here.
