G Hotel Gurney, the modern hideaway in Penang

G Hotel Gurney, the modern hideaway in Penang

As a UNESCO site with many remarkable attractions, decadent hotels are something Penang never bereft of. Among huddle of high-rises in Gurney Drive stands a 5-star designer hotel G Hotel Gurney, now with a fresh new appearance.

Sandwiched between two prominent shopping malls, the Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon, the revamped G Hotel Gurney is an ideal accommodation for both staycation and vacation.

Glass Lobby

Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by an award-winning glass lobby furnished by contemporary Italian designer furniture from the likes of Minotti and Porada and you can opt to adjourn the chic G Lounge to enjoy drinks and acoustic live brand entertainment as you transverse through the grand lobby concourse to check in.

The renovated G Hotel Gurney now houses 312 rooms within its structure. Like the lobby, each guest room will boast designer furniture including Camerich lifestyle furnishings from U.K., Serta Royal Platinum Mattresses and Herman Miller designer work chairs.

Tree Bar

After checking in, why not pop in Taste Cafe to treat yourself a delicious lunch with the first ever Lava Stone barbecue grill imported all the way from Indonesia? At night, don’t forget to check out Tree Bar, one of the main attractions in G Hotel Gurney. Here, you can sip tasty cocktails and have a good time with your friends while being accompanied by a 90-year-old Angsana tree, standing beyond 40m tall.

If the Tree Bar is too tame for your taste, head to G Pool Bar for a luscious glass of champagne by the infinity pool. Speaking of its facilities, G Hotel Gurney also offers a state-of-the-art gym; G Cycle for outdoor lovers who lust for sightseeing; a spa for a respite; and hair salon for a makeover.

Grand Ballroom

Also comprising five function rooms and two ballrooms, G Hotel Gurney is a great place for corporate events and weddings as well and, not to mention, the Executive Lounge with a serene setting designed for business meetings.
