Inspired by Penang’s colonial Victorian heritage, The Prestige Hotel Penang welcomes travellers to experience a traditional colonial atmosphere while being pampered with modern facilities. The hotel is only 25 minutes away from Penang International Airport and within walking distance to Penang’s cultural hotspots and popular gourmet finds – so convenient, isn’t it? Featuring 162 rooms, an all day dining outlet, an arcade with a mix of retail outlets, event spaces and a rooftop infinity pool, The Prestige Hotel Penang is a great designer living space for both the busy business executives and the contemporary world travellers of today. The following are 5 reasons why you should consider staying at The Prestige Hotel when you visit Penang.
#1 – Every Room and Suite has a Unique Blend of Designer and Contemporary Heritage Aesthetics
Each room and suite is fitted with the latest media technology, ensuring a seamless and functional atmosphere suited for business or leisure. Moreover, the rooms and suites span up to 45 square metres and offer either a king-size bed or twin beds. There are 4 room types for all the comfort you need to relax and unwind. The Premier Deluxe room features a living space, while the Deluxe Trio room boasts a king-size bed and a single bed in separate rooms. The Loft Suite spans up to 45 square meters and boasts a lounge and an open bedroom on a mezzanine floor.
#2 – Infinity Rooftop Swimming Pool
The infinity rooftop swimming pool contains 100% salt water and opens up to a panoramic view overlooking the Straits of Malacca. There is a sun deck with lounge chairs and gazebos by the pool for travellers to relax and unwind. This is also a great spot for stunning views of the sunrise.
#3 – Instagram-worthy Gym to Work Off the Extra Calories from Feasting on Penang’s Numerous Local Delights
Since The Prestige Penang is located near many eateries and cafés, I’m pretty sure you’ll end up eating a lot. Do not be afraid of putting on weight during your trip because you can head to the hotel’s ultra-chic custom designed gym equipped with treadmills, cycles, and weight machines to fit all your workout needs. The gym is accessible 24 hours a day with your room keycard.
#4 – Enjoy the Convenience of Having 12 Dining and Retail Outlets Located Right Below The Prestige Penang
Experience a holistic dining experience at The Glasshouse located on the ground floor. This restaurant is a great place for a business meeting and an ideal spot to unwind after a full day of sightseeing and exploring the city. The Glasshouse features both local delicacies and international cuisine in the all-day dining menu designed for hearty breakfasts and dinners for leisure travellers, as well as, efficient and speedy lunches for the busy business travellers of today. Besides The Glasshouse, you can also find a pharmacy, a florist, and a teahouse, among other dining and retail outlets.
#5 – Hold Exciting Parties in the Multipurpose Hall
No matter what special occasion you’re planning to celebrate, the whimsical rooftop air-conditioned pavilion and terrace boasts an intimate setting perfect for corporate and private events for up to 80 guests.
In general, I really like The Prestige Hotel’s interior design, the colour scheme and how convenient its location is. You should consider staying here on your next visit to Penang.
