Deluxe - ££££


The Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang, Penang is a testament to British colonialism. It has been a destination for travellers from all over the world for more than a century, and has a distinct nostalgia and charm which will keep you coming back for more.

It’s also in the perfect spot for exploring the city; walk to Fort Cornwallis or the Penang State Museum and Art Gallery. Head to the shops for some retail therapy, then discover temples, mosques and churches before heading to the food districts. They must be on your list because Penang’s street food is famous all over the world!

Few hotels can say that they have a heritage wing but the Eastern & Oriental does. The wing was built in the 1880s and is home to several suites, which are perfect for those looking to indulge in the nostalgic side of this hotel.

The Victory Annexe, on the other hand, is for visitors looking to enjoy more modern luxury and the incredible views. Whichever you choose, you won’t be disappointed.


There are plenty of dining options in this hotel; there are a few places for fine dining, bars and lounges for a late-night tipple and even a poolside terrace where you can enjoy a refreshing dip and drink.

Not only does the hotel have a pool, it has its own gym, spa and even its own gallery. Make sure you look around it before you leave; it’ll reveal the history of Penang via the hotel’s own history.
