This luxurious, 19th century hotel occupies a fantastic beachfront location in Georgetown, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Elegantly decorated, this beautiful property offers a large outdoor pool with stunning views, a first rate spa and gourmet restaurants.

Dating back to 1885, this stunning hotel, known simply as ‘The E&O’, still retains the charm of a bygone British colonial era. When driving up to the courtyard, entering the pristine, white ornate building and walking into the spacious lobby, you instantly feel the heritage and charm of Malaya. This luxurious all-suite hotel has proudly combined old-world elegance with an infusion of modernity. Its tastefully decorated suites feature fine furnishings, warm wooden floors and large, spacious, marble bathrooms – some with a claw-foot bathtub. Complimentary WiFi and 24-hour butler service is also provided for your convenience.

The Eastern & Oriental Hotel has six dining options to choose from, including The 1885 which serves traditional English afternoon tea in an elegant setting. After a dip in the stunning infinity pool, spend a lazy afternoon in the sun and enjoy the Poolside Terrace, located on Level 6 of the new Victory Annexe. Here you can try E&O's signature cocktail, order some light snacks and refreshments and take in the spectacular views of the Andaman Sea. Visit Farquhar's bar, an old English-style bar with deep armchairs, a long, dark wood bar and an exclusive club lounge atmosphere.

Ideally located in the heart of Penang, the Eastern & Oriental Hotel is within walking distance of an amazing heritage of art, architecture, culture, shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs. After a full day of sightseeing, relax, revitalise and rejuvenate at the Pañpuri Organic Spa, located on the 6th floor of the Victory Annexe, providing a broad range of authentic treatments from across Asia by trained therapists. For something more energetic, visit the hotel’s in house, fully-equipped state of the art gym.
