Located on the northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia, Penang is a Malaysian state well-known for its mural art and delicious hawker food. If you are looking for a vacation to check out all these things in the charming state yet yearn for some respite from the bustling city centre, Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang will definitely suit your needs. Find out why this first hotel to be built on Tanjung Bungah beach is worth your attention for your next trip to Penang!
Strategic location at Tanjung Bungah
Originally a sleepy fishing village, the Tanjung Bungah area is the nearest seaside suburb to, and about 30 minutes’ drive away from, the city centre. Therefore, staying at Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang offers you a respite from the busy city life and a chance to chill by the beach while not being too far away from all the action in the city centre. The hotel is also about 30 to 40 minutes’ drive from Penang International Airport.
For budget travellers, travelling out from the hotel to explore other parts of the state is convenient and easy, with a public bus stop just outside the hotel entrance that can bring you to Pulau Tikus or the famous Georgetown at an affordable fare of 1.40 MYR (0.34 USD). If not, you can also get a ride to Georgetown on the complimentary hotel shuttle service at 11.30 am daily or visit Batu Ferringhi night market with the free shuttle service that departs the hotel at 6.30 pm or 7.30 pm every night.
Spacious and comfortable rooms
Step into your hotel room and you will be pleased to find that all the rooms are spacious and airy, with an area of at least 33 square metres for a standard room, ample space for your utmost comfort. For a hotel that has been built since the 1980s, the interiors may not be as modern as you would prefer, but the rooms are clean and well-maintained. The beds are comfortable for a good night’s rest. All essential toiletries such as toothbrush, toothpaste, shower and shampoo products are also provided in the bathroom. The complimentary Wi-Fi connection provided in the hotel is also stable, so you can stay connected without any worries. If you are travelling in a group, you may also request to stay in connecting rooms so that it is easier to connect with other group members. Opt for a superior room with sea view and you can even relax and admire the lovely view right from the comfort of the balcony outside your room!
Hop over to the private beach at your convenience
Copthorne is located right beside the pristine Tanjung Bungah beach and beach lovers can rejoice in the fact that there is a secluded private beach just for hotel guests! Follow the signs from the swimming pool on level 7 to get to the private beachfront. There are lots of beautiful large seashells lying on the white sandy beach. If you wish, you may also engage in fun water sports like para-sailing or swimming here. Do exercise caution when you are at sea as there is a signboard here reminding guests to beware of jellyfish. You can also simply relax and do nothing by the beach, just enjoy the sea breeze and its natural beauty!
An affordable and idyllic stay in Penang
From a wallet-friendly price of 196 MYR (48 USD) for a night in the superior sea-view room, not only do you get to relax in comfort with a stunning sea view and have access to a secluded private beach, the vibrant city centre attractions are not too far away too. Isn’t this the best of both worlds for a perfect vacation? Go ahead and plan your next relaxing vacation at Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang now!
