This luxurious, 19th Century hotel occupies a fantastic beachfront location in George Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Elegantly decorated, Eastern and Oriental Hotel Penang offers two large outdoor pools with stunning views, a first-rate spa and gourmet restaurants.

Ideally located in the heart of Penang, the hotel is within walking distance of an amazing heritage of art, architecture, culture, shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs. Penang International Airport is 16 miles to the south.

Dating back to 1885, this stunning hotel is known simply as ‘The E and O’. When entering the pristine, white ornate building and walking into the spacious lobby, you instantly feel the combination of old-world elegance and modernity. Its tastefully decorated suites feature fine furnishings, warm wooden floors and large, spacious, marble bathrooms – some with a claw-foot bathtub. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also provided for your convenience.
