Exceptional service in an exceptionally beautiful hotel. Fantastic location but quietly hidden in a little side street. I would and am recommending everyone to stay here if they are in Penang. The only place have ever heard of a free minibar! The owners have done a fantastic job and you can read about their journey and where all of your pictures in your room come from - it's really very personal. The breakfast was lovely and I can't say enough about the friendliness of the ALL of the staff.

We spent our only day in Langkawi at the beach. Although picturesque, the beaches in Thailand were rocky with lots of coral ...

''Which one no fish, no seafood?'
'This one prawn'
'No prawn - pork?' I ask hopefully
'This one shrimp' She spays with an impressive amount of Saliva squirting through her wonky teeth
'No shrimp - Pork?'
'SCCCTTHHRRIMP' she sprays again. I decide to give up in fear of needing a change ...
We arrived in Penang in the evening and after finding our hotel we went straight out for dinner in little India. We found a restaurant near by and ate there. I had an egg roti canai which is a bit like a savoury pancake which you eat with your hands and dunk into different curry sauces. It was delish. The roti and a fresh mint and lime drink cost less than £2 so I was pretty ...
