Eastern & Oriental Hotel

Eastern & Oriental Hotel was my gorgeous accommodation for my short, impromptu trip to Georgetown in Penang. It was beautiful, classic and all things nice.

Perched by the waterfront, it was only a little walk away from the city center. And if you were lazy still, you could always hail cabs from right there. Or walk less than 10 minutes to get the local free CAT buses that shuttle around Georgetown.

Great rooms, size and looks wise. Lavish bath, Victorian bathtubs, a pretty little balcony. Nice location, nice patios for lunches and brunches overlooking the beautiful blue waters.

Huge breakfast spreads from a plethora of breads to curries and rice, and with wide ranging hours for them, those could well be brunches. Teas, coffees, juices, fruits, you’d be spoilt for choices.

Friendly staff. A spa that I didn’t avail of. A lounge that had a happy hour at 5 PM everyday. Two swimming pools. Plenty of garden space. Beautiful halls, hallways and lobbies. I don’t even think I explored their entire facilities fully. But here’s some of what I did.

More details of the food and drinks to follow on my food blog!
