Lexis Suites Penang
28 Jalan Teluk Kumbar
Bayan Lepas, Penang
Check out this hotel with private pool in all their rooms! Oh and nice view too.
Less than 15 minutes drive from Penang Airport (5.3 km), it's perfect for tourists looking for alternative area than the famous (and busy) Georgetown. It can also be a one-night stop before you leave Penang.
The parking & corridor was very service-apartment-like, I did not put high expectation on the room. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The suite was perfect, I didn't want to leave. Well, almost perfect but we'll get there.
Spacious with VERY comfortable beds and pillows- check
Behind the cleverly designed wall...

|Need to update the office? No problem|
|BEAUTIFUL bathroom BUT...|
my only complain is about the bathroom floor, specifically the drainage system. It wasn't designed properly and if you use the (heavenly) shower/rainwater shower, the bathroom gets flooded :(
Lucky there's that nice bathtub :D
Oh yeah. Another issue is thin walls but it's only a problem if you get noisy neighbours.
Anyway... if you need to do your lapses, there's a proper outdoor swimming pool.
Buffet breakfast was included with the room rate and IT WAS SO DELICIOUS!
