Hotel Overview

Old meets new

Eastern & Oriental Penang sits on the historical coastline of George Town, Penang’s capital. At this beautiful hotel, you’ll find colonial-era opulence alongside all the modern touches you’d expect at a resort as luxurious as this one. And the original Heritage Wing was extensively refurbished in December 2019, using a sophisticated neutral palette and Malay-inspired patterns to bring together two very different styles. Contemporary features like an infinity pool, Nespresso® machines and rainfall showers give a modern twist to this charming hotel, which has been one of Penang’s finest for more than 135 years.

Excellent location

George Town’s Chinese and Indian history can still be seen across the area, and Eastern & Oriental Penang is the ideal base from which to explore. A 15-minute walk takes you to Fort Cornwallis, where you can see remnants of Penang Island’s past defence system, then head five minutes further south to Chew Jetty – a collection of six 19th-century jetties developed by Chinese settlers. Or stroll through the centre of the town to see historical houses and buildings, still standing strong.

Space to relax

There’s plenty to do at Eastern & Oriental Penang. Shake off the jet lag with an aromatherapy massage, inspired by Japanese shiatsu or Balinese techniques. Go for a cooling dip in the resort’s two pools, or put your feet up poolside with a cocktail in hand. You can even indulge in a bit of retail therapy. Visit Monica Quen’s boutique to find international pieces, or pick up a few reminders of your stay from the Emporium gift shop.
