Amy Adejokun Section editor

Opened in 1990, the Park Royal is a big hotel ideal for a family trip, given the size of the kids' club. All the common areas as well as the rooms are nicely decorated. Even if the building has a large capacity, the land is big enough to be able to maintain privacy.

    Location 4.39 /10

    The Park Royal is located on the Northeast coast of Penang, along the Batu Ferringhi beach. It is the most beautiful beach on the island, all things considered. The Bayan Lepas International Airport, located in the Southeast of the island, is located about a forty minute drive away, at a distance of 22 miles. George Town, the capital, is 12.4 miles away, or a twenty minute trip.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The Park Royal opens its doors on a spacious but especially very elegant lobby. All the decoration is finely-worked and very stylish. The building is built in a bow shape, turned towards the beach, facing the Batu Ferringhi bay. The hotel's reception area is made up of a large counter, set up facing the hotel's piano bar where a Filipino band performs every evening. Once outside, we discover the hotel's two swimming pool including one reserved for children. A large lawn gathers deckchairs over the entire length of the beach. Just next door, two outside Balinese massage parlours are available.
    The hotel's spa, the St. Gregory, is very pleasant. The six massage rooms each have a garden view. The Indonesian architect knew how to perfectly match up the different construction materials. Most of the masseuses come from Bali. So ask for Asti to give you an extremely relaxing massage with strong sensations guaranteed!

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The hotel has 324 rooms (including 30 suites). They are distributed according to eleven different categories! The standard room is very comfortable. The orange colour of one side matches very well the cream tones of the other side, as well as the dark wood furniture. Most of the rooms have a balcony, with a garden or beach view. It's a shame that the seats and low table are in plastic. Fresh fruits as well as Asian pastries welcome new clients. Decorative framed objects adorn the walls. However, favour a room in the left wing since the piano bar singer sings until midnight. The rooms are fully equipped: television, air conditioning, safe, full mini-bar with coffee and tea kit, direct line for international calling and room service 24h a day.
    The white marble bathroom matches the rest of the room. Welcome products and bathrobes are available.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    Three restaurants are available to the Park Royal's clients. The main restaurant, the Tamarin Brasserie, is a pleasant place open towards outside. Several tables are set up in the garden. The cuisine is international but also Asian. It is open for all three meals of the day. For breakfast, you will enjoy a nice buffet where you can even get fresh-squeezed fruit juice upon request. The Tiffins takes care of lunch and dinner. You can have grilled meats, sea food, Indian and Indonesian specialities. The frame is rather contemporary and elegant. The meals are served la carte. Finally, the Cool Banana is a restaurant that will satisfy children as well as adults. Big stuffed-animal type bananas decorate the armchairs. You can eat original dishes for lunch. Be careful, however, the helpings are very hearty !

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The beaches are all public in Malaysia and the Batu Ferringhi beach is no exception. That's why the Park Royal has not set up deckchairs in the sand, which is a real shame! This beach is considered the most beautiful one in the island. Even if it is pleasant, it is not a postcard landscape. The sand is of good quality, but unfortunately you find litters that blemish the landscape. In addition, be careful when swimming, jellyfish regularly come up to the edge of the water. It is the downside since the water is rather warm. The location is not very windy but rather lively due to the jet skis and other parakiting. The hotel has a water sports club offering different activities like jet skiing or water skiing.

    To know

    Lots of shops and restaurants are located nearby the hotel.
    The kids' club, the Koko Nut Club, is a true little paradise for children. Several rooms gather among other things video games, different activities, and even a room for naps. A true agenda is developed to occupy the children all day long. It offers in particular creative activities, museum visits, etc. The pool reserved for them even has a water slide !

      Open since 1948, the Lone Pine is a little structure similar to a boutique hotel. It was the first hotel built on Batu Ferringhi. This calm location is favourable for relaxing. On the other hand, the beach is rather noisy due to the jet skis that run all day long.

      The Shangri-La Rasa Sayang is located just next to the Shangri-La Golden Sands. But it is a lot less lively and much calmer than its neighbour. It has two swimming pools including one forbidden to children. So it can welcome couples as well as families.
