Location

If you’re going to visit the island once dubbed The Pearl of the Orient, sample some of its colonial charm. The Lone Pine Hotel boutique hotel in Penang has recently had a makeover (in 2010) but everything that’s made it a popular destination since 1948 remains, from its beachside location at Batu Ferringhi (Foreigner's Rock) to the surrounding casuarina trees (the original single tree was once mistaken for a pine, hence the hotel’s name).

Rooms

The Lone Pine’s 90 rooms come in a variety of sizes, starting with the spacious 45 sq m Deluxe rooms with sea views and a compact lounging pool on the balcony. Super Deluxe, Premier, Premier Garden rooms are also available but for extra luxury, book a Suite. They range from a Deluxe with a separate day bed to a Grand Premier Suite – 118 sq m with a dining area, kitchenette, guest bathroom and luxury bathroom.

Activities

If you could ever tire of days on the beach listening to the lapping waves of the Andaman Sea, there’s plenty to do nearby. Straits Quay is a hub of bistros and bars, shops and art galleries, restaurants and cafés as well as the Performing Arts Centre Of Penang and is a 10-minute drive from the hotel. Take a cruise from there or, if you’re feeling more energetic, follow the Penang Heritage Trail and explore the city, not forgetting to see George Town, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wandering back towards the hotel, pop into the local shops or browse the night market for a bargain. There’s also the hotel’s own shop, Gerai, offering a variety of souvenirs without having to step out the door, a games room to occupy the kids and a gym.

Dining

Start the day at The Bungalow with a buffet breakfast by the beach. Later in the day, it becomes an ideal venue for lunch, serving traditional favourites, such as colonial-style steaks to burgers, pasta to Penang wok-fried noodles and poolside snacks as well as Hainanese specialities. In the evening, get ready for authentic Japanese cuisine at Matsu, which serves fresh fish and seafood and grilled meats as well as offering bento boxes for picnics. Below Matsu is batubar, the place to go for relaxed tapas dining and a tempting array of New and Old World wines.

Spa

It’s not just a selection of treatments you’ll have to choose between at the Pure Energy spa – you can also opt where you enjoy them. Get back to nature at an outdoor cabana or select a soothing indoor treatment rooms, and prepare yourself for some serious indulgence. While not a budget option, the spa aims to offer good value for money, so you may find yourself returning time and time again for massages, facials, scrubs, wraps, waxing, and hands and feet care.
