It is pleasant place for staying, it's structure is a bit old (may be 80's) but it has a very beautiful swimming pool outside, swimmin goutside in December is really fantastic
This is one of two 5 stars hotels in Penang. It is located on a top of hill and next to the Bukit Jambul Golf Course. Less than 20 minutes from the airport, it is near the Bayan Lepas multinational corporation factories and the Penang Bridge to the mainland.
Has a grotto and shaded swimming pool. Excellent Japanese restaurant with weekend buffet.
Government civil service get great hotel discount. Only thing is that it is not walking distance to other places as it is on a hill slope and so need to drive or take taxi. The hotel does provide shuttle service to a nearby shopping complex.
It was a good stay in this hotel. It has a very nice pool which extends to inside the base of the hotel with a waterfall. The gym is well established with a dance studio.
One of my favourite hotels, it's located on the hill of Bukit Jambul and just 15mins from the airport and the industrial area. Next to the hotel is the greens of Bukit Jambul Country Club.
Unique Quality: I love the open air concept in the lobby, with lots of greens. And also the short hanging bridge in the lanscaped garden. The night view of the city from the hotel is absolutely breathtaking.
