If sun and surf are what you desire then head on out to Batu Ferringhi, it's a bit further from town and there lies the white sandy streches of beaches and the sun sparkling form the waters of the sea. There are a many hotels on that stretch of the island. You can stay at 4-star hotel like The Rasa Sayang Hotel, The Lone Pine Hotel and The Golden Sands.
To stay closer to town would be the newly opened "G" Hotel as well as the popular Gurney Hotel beside it and Evergreen Laurel furhter down Gurney Drive. Close proximty to Gurney Plaza Shopping Mall it makes this an ideal hotel for those who want some R&R and shopping. Starbucks, Nando's, Sushi King, Segafredo's, McD and more are located there. At night drop by the Gurney Drive Hawker Food Centre for a taste of local fare. Fried Oysters, Satay and Baked Squids are a must try.
If you want to stay in the heart of Georgetown, the hotels to consider are the Cititel and E&O in Upper Penang Road, plenty of nightlife here. As there are bistro and clubs to party in. Other notable hotels are the Traders Hotel, Sunway Hotel, Dorsett (Sheraton) and City Bayview.
For those wanting to play a little golf, the Equatorial Hotel is the best bet. Located on top a hill, the air is fresh and the view is great. Superb hotel with excellent rooms and services and equally good restaurants. Located in Bukit Jambul area, a short ride from the airport.
These are some of the fine hotels that are on the island. Knowing where to stay is all the more enjoyable as you get to optimise your stay.
