The Eastern & Oriental Hotel in Penang, or The E&O as the heritage hotel is popularly called, dates back to nearly a century. While the luxurious Heritage Wing boasts plush interiors, legendary butler service and a seafront swimming pool, the more recent Victory Annexe flaunts modern-classic decor elements. Enjoy modern amenities such as mini bar, safety box and WIFI during your stay. Lounge by the deck pool that offers a view of the Straits, or curl up with your favorite book from the well-stocked library. The experiential narrative of Penang’s rich history at The E&O Gallery is worth a visit. You could also revitalize in the Panpuri Organic Spa. Savor inventive fusion dishes or traditional afternoon tea at 1885, named after the year The E&O was opened. Walk into Sarkies Corner, a colonial coffee shop, for some quiet time. Soak in the private club atmosphere at the Farquhar’s Bar. Head to Level 6 of Victory Annexe for a spectacular view of the Andaman Sea, over cocktails.
