Eastern & Oriental Hotel

Penang | Deluxe

Originally built in 1885 by the Sarkies brothers (who later founded the Raffles in Singapore) this historic masterpiece sits proudly on the waterfront of Georgetown. The Eastern & Oriental Hotel, or E&O as it is known, combines modern day comfort and luxury with old world charm.

Perfect for clients craving a little of the nostalgia of Colonial Malaysia, the E&O is a retreat from the more modern side of Georgetown. Guest suites are just as you’d expect - classical, luxurious and grand. Great care has been taken to ensure that renovations have stayed true to the original.

Dining facilities are exceptional, with perhaps The 1885 edging it as the standout. The hotel also boasts the finest swimming pool in Georgetown, set within sculptured gardens and offering commanding views out to sea.

We Say
The E&O is one of the world's finest hotels. You simply cannot replicate this level of quality.
