Penang is both an enchanting island off the north western coast of Malaysia, and a coastal district on the Malaysian mainland known as Seberang Perai. Penang Island is known for its cultural diversity. Visitors to the island enjoy spending time in the capital of George Town, a pedestrian-friendly city, just waiting to show off its 19th century churches, colonial buildings, mosques, and temples. If it’s a beach getaway you want, head to the Batu Ferringhi on the northern coast of the island to enjoy white sand, hot sun, and the island’s best resorts. Finally, take advantage of this “food paradise,” and fearlessly order up some char kway teowat one of the island’s ubiquitous food stalls.
We offer a wide range of accommodation options, including luxurious beach hotels in Penang Island. Just imagine falling asleep to the sound of ocean waves right outside your window. You’ll also find a number of Penang hotels and resorts on Batu Ferringhi. Sort through our selection of lodging to find the place for you.
