Penang being a tourist-centric island city attracts a record number of over 900,000 visitors each year. George Town is always a fun and laid-back place to visit and since it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2008, the local government has put in quite a lot of work in keeping the city clean and pretty. The streets of Penang are now very well-known for its various café’s, restaurants, galleries, wall murals and other attractions that make for a great holiday break.
Batu Ferringhi on the other hand, is famed for being a highly popular stretch of beaches in north Malaysia attracting people from all over the world. The tourist town has its own sustainable community made up of interesting and colourful night markets, food stalls, and upmarket dining outlets located within and around the myriad of charming hotels that are sat facing the beaches and beautiful sunsets.
There are plenty of hotels to choose from in Penang but the rates have been steadily rising as they take advantage of the growing tourist traffic. Of late that growth has slowed although the rates are still a lot higher than they used to be which had opened up different options for travelers looking for a comfortable and affordable place to stay.
Tanjung Point Residences located in Tanjung Bungah is a great choice for accommodation that presents many compelling reasons for an un-fussed and unforgettable stay. Among them are:
Tanjung Bungah is often overlooked as most people always consider Batu Ferringhi first when planning a beachside vacation. But, as most will also notice when they commute between George Town and Batu Ferringhi is that Tanjung Bungah is conveniently located between the two, making both places relatively easy to access. If driving, the underground carpark has a direct lift to your floor once you have collected the access keycard upon check-in.
The property units offer a choice of single, double, and three bedrooms. The three bedroom suites offer an enormous 1600 sq ft of floor space that is so unlike a hotel room which can be somewhat limiting in size. Here, you have plenty of room for everyone in a well-furnished and comfortable home away from home.
Although Penang is famous for its food, it can be expensive to eat out all the time. And seeing that most hotels will ask you not to bring in outside food and snacks, however, that is not a problem at all at Tanjung Point Residences. The in-room facilities allow guests to rustle up light meals or snacks in their partially-equipped kitchenettes.
4. Infinity Pool
One of the hotel’s best features is their beautiful infinity pool located on the fifth floor which gives you stunning panoramic views of the sea and beyond. The pool deck area befits a real holiday getaway for complete island relaxation. For those who love to work up a sweat, feel free to run off all that holiday eating, or pump iron in their well-equipped gym.
5. Close to the Beach
Tanjung Point’s sea view facing rooms come with a balcony that’s simply perfect to enjoy chilled sundowners while watching the changing colours of Penang’s beautiful sunsets. The property’s close proximity to the beach is another favourable feature for guests who would like a relaxing stroll, or splash about in the water with their children.
6. Great Value
Finally but by no means last, the prices are wonderfully affordable, especially considering a well-furnished three bedroom apartment is priced just a little over RM400 a night for a large family or a group of friends looking to enjoy a few days of island living.
