We know, we know. No Malaysian needs convincing to make a trip to Penang, but with more and more deals from THE ENTERTAINER even as far up north as our charming island, it’s getting harder to resist. What’s even better, it’s not just savings on food and drinks – it’s even for hotels and tours!
So, the next time there’s a long weekend or if you have the day off, take a nice drive with your besties and show up at some of these spots for a lovely stay and a memorable trip.
Offer: 1-for-1 One Room Night (Room Only)
Treat yourself to a luxurious stay at this 4-star resort in the heart of Batu Ferringhi Beach. After a day of exploring the island, you’ll be able to come back for an indulgent dip in any of the three outdoor swimming pools, or play a few rounds of mini-golf or tennis. It’s the perfect recharge before heading back out to continue your food hunt. Just don’t forget to contact the hotel to make a booking before your trip!
Offer: 1-for-1 One Room Night (Includes Breakfast)
Another 4-star hotel to choose from, the cozy and comfortable Flamingo is located along the beach of Tanjung Bungah, a short drive away from the Batu Ferringhi night market, and from the heart of Georgetown. When you’re not out chasing murals or pretty Instagram shots, relax with a book and some drinks by the Andaman Sea at the hotel itself or head to the spa for a heavenly massage. There are even several dining options here if you get hungry in the process.
Offer: 1-for-1 Tour
Sometimes, seeing a place through the eyes of a tourist can remind you of how beautiful it is. Bringing you to 22 stops covering more than 50 attractions, rediscover how amazing Penang truly is, as you’re whisked around in an open-deck double-decker bus with pre-recorded commentary so you can be an expert on all things Penang. It’s a wholesome activity you can do with friends or family.
Whether you need to refuel before continuing to explore the island or to simply catch up with friends, grab a cuppa from this local, cosy spot on Kimberley Street that’s bound to put a smile on your face. It serves up a simple menu with a selection of Western brunch items and sandwiches, and if you’re feeling up for desert, you can give their fluffy pancakes with homemade strawberry jam a go. Otherwise, a simple coffee with your friends would do just as well. After all, what could be a better blend, than coffee and friends?
Offer: 50% Off Spot-On Results Treatment, 50% Off Synergy Treatment
After some sightseeing under the hot sun, it’s time for some rejuvenation. Give your skin a health boost with nutrient-filled pampering treatments available at SOTHYS, one of the top skincare brands in Malaysia. With several sophisticated treatments to choose from, available at several outlets around Penang, you can rest assured that your skin and wallet will definitely be thanking you.
Offer: 1-for-1 House Beverage, 1-for-1 Two House Beverages, 1-for-1 Jug of House Beverage
What better way to end the day, than with a nightcap like no other? Have a neon night out with your friends, and enjoy unique dry-ice cocktails in a glow-in-the-dark environment that’ll look just beautiful on your Instagram newsfeed. Not only are the drinks reasonably priced, the cocktails served up by this little hidden gem are said to be strong, with hilarious names such as Left Me At Blue Ticks and The Panty Dropper. Try their nachos or Boring Ol Fries if you’re feeling a little peckish, as you feast your eyes on the amazing neon murals and trippy laser lights around you.
It looks like you’re all set for your next trip to Penang! Enjoy a relaxing weekend with your family or go sightseeing to see what’s new around town since your last visit.
