Tourists and locals favourite spot - Gurney Drive lets you savour the local delicacies to your heart’s content. Mouth-watering local delicacies such as Char Koay Teow, Assam Laksa, Prawn Noodle and more are just 5 minutes-drive from the hotel.

Batu Ferringhi Beach (Foreigner's Rock), is a strip of beaches on the northern coast of Penang with endless beachside activities include waterskiing, sailing, windsurfing, water scooters and waterskiing for friends and family. This prime stretch of beach is always a hive of activity with elite nightspots and restaurants which come to life in the evening.

This tropical butterfly farm in Teluk Bahang is so famous that it was visited by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife when they came to Penang for a private holiday in 2008. A live museum with winged beauties fluttering about as well as breeding research centre, the farm is an eco-tourism gem indeed.

Penang Hill is actually made up of a series of hills which rise above the island. The peak stands at 821 metres above sea level, which makes it a cool getaway from the tropical heat below. The hills is accessible via a funicular train which was opened for use in 1923. The train operates in two sections and passengers change railcars at midpoint. It takes about half an hour to reach the summit and the train service operates at half hour intervals.

Perhaps the finest Buddhist temple in South East Asia, the Kek Lok Si temple stands majestically on a hill in Ayer Itam. Construction began in 1893 and was completed in 1905. Built in tiers, the beautifully crafted "Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas" took more than 20 years to build and was completed in 1930. Most visitors approach the temple as they ascend a stairway, roofs of which provide shelter to a multitude of shops selling souvernirs and other - most secular - commodities. The temple also features gardens, a turtle pond, shrines and beautiful sculptures.
