Glow Penang; an ordinary hotel but well done!

Macalister Road in Penang continues to develop with the opening of Glow Penang on December 2013. Managed by Zinc/InVision Hospitality, the mid-scale hotel offers convenient and comfortable accommodation for both holiday and business travellers. The hotel fuses 131 stylish guest rooms, a bar and the all-day dining Zest Cafe.

The cafe brightly decorated with artwork on the walls, and simple yet modern furniture is open from 7am to 11pm daily.  It occupies two separate floors, a space on the ground floor and a large space on the first floor.

1881 Chong Tian Cultural Hotel 中天酒店 is a restored Chinese heritage hotel, located along Jalan Pintal Tali (Rope Walk), Penang. This cultural hotel on PENANG’S UNESCO world heritage site features a rooftop bar, Eastern and Western restaurant, function hall, library and a museum with antique collections dating back to the 18th century.

I first arrived with some friends for a tour and a meal prior to its opening in December 2011. One gets transported back in time the moment you walk in the door of the refurbished pre-war house which was once a thriving hotel in the late 1800s.

Drive all the way up to the cliffs edge of Jimbaran Bay and you will reach the high-end heavenly Ayana Resort and Spa.

I have been holidaying in the touristy Bali for one week to attend my son’s wedding. During that time, I was set up by a friend of mine to check into the award-winning five-star Ayana Resort and Spa. Close to many main attractions such as Kuta and Seminyak, the hotel with Balinese influences had my first visit brimming with great experience, hospitality and interesting culinary adventure.

My travel hotel destination this time to Renaissance Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, was an introduction to the hotel’s newly-refurbished Lifestyle rooms.

The hotel is tucked in the bustling corner of Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang, a great location which is walking distance from the monorail station and many other attractions. The different wings of the hotel combines modern comfort and renaissance art and design.

Finding a place of accommodation in Kuala Lumpur is a breeze with its plenty of hotels. For short trip, staying in the hotel would be right, but when there is a need to be away from home for a longer period of time, serviced apartments and its abundance of facilities and services are most preferred.

On my last trip down to Kuala Lumpur, I had the chance to experience a week stay at the serviced apartment in Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur. Located in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle on Jalan Conlay, the Prince Residence’s serviced apartment is a stroll away from the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Petronas Twin Towers and minutes drive away from the Embassy Row on Jalan Ampang. What’s more, Suria KLCC Shopping Mall, Pavilion and the many cafes, restaurants and bars, are a leisure stroll away!

I was down in Kuala Lumpur recently, invited to attend the soft launch of the Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas in Bagan Lalang, Sepang.  That night’s event was officiated by the Minister of Tourism Malaysia, Dato’ Sri Dr. Ng Yen Yen with the presence of many investors and people from the local & overseas travel agency.

Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas, is a brand new luxurious holiday resort by Sepang Goldcoast. What is unique about this resort is that it stretches out from the Sepang coastline, almost a kilometer into the sheltered waters of the Straits of Malacca with 393 sea villas that shape a palm tree. It had been noted in the Malaysia Book of Records as “The Longest Palm Tree Shape Resort in Malaysia”.
