A review of the Parkroyal, Penang

The Parkroyal Penang is a four-star hotel on Penang Island, Malaysia with an excellent view of the sea. The island is in the Malacca Straits and faces the north. It can be said that the Andaman Sea is in the north and the Java Sea in the south pass and mix through the Malacca Straits.

Batu Ferringhi beach

It can be considered as the best hotel in Penang because of its excellent location on the Batu Ferringhi (Foreigner’s Rock) beach. The façade of the hotel is architecturally unique and looks like a mixture of a Mayan temple and the grill of a Bentley. This Penang resort hotel has a beautiful swimming pool overlooking the sea. It has a great restaurant for Sichuan cuisine. The spa facilities are excellent and very relaxing.

Pagoda of ten thousand Buddhas

One does not get bored staying at the Parkroyal Penang. The perfect beach has facilities for parasailing. It is very near to a great night market where one can buy souvenirs and try the seafood. The hotel Parkroyal is also surrounded by inexpensive restaurants and bars. The Parkroyal Penang hotel bars have rather steep prices. The Kek Lok Si temple is worth seeing. It is built in tiers and right at the top, is the fabulous ‘Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas.” The butterfly park with its 3000 specimens is a place worth visiting near Parkroyal Hotel Penang. George Town is the state capital and also a UNESCO World Heritage site. This city has seen traders from all over the world in the last 500 years. It is a living example of heritage architecture from the 19th and 20th Century. A Trishaw ride is a must and a visit to the Chinese Opera is also a great delight. The proximity of the 200 years old China Town to this great resort Malaysia makes it de rigueur to visit this old market with its quaint shops, residences and temples. A walk through these streets transports the traveler to the world of Chinese immigrants in the year 1800. The final touch is a dinner by the beach which makes the Parkway one of the top hotels Malaysia. The stay in Penang can be combined with a flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital and then, to Singapore at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. One can stay at the Parkroyal , KL and in Singapore at the Parkroyal on Beach Road. Both these hotels are in the hearts of their respective cities. The Singapore hotel was earlier known as the Hotel Park Royal or even as the Plaza Park royal Singapore Hotel. Parkroyal hotel Singapore offers the same superb service as the Penang hotel.
