Four Points By Sheraton, Penang


If you are looking for a nice, clean, reasonably priced hotel with beach and yet close to town, Four Points is the right place for you. Situated on a tranquil stretch of white sandy Tanjung Bungah beach, overlooking the Straits of Malacca. This low-key modern hotel is just 15 minutes drive from George Town and Batu Ferringhi, 45 minutes from the Penang International Airport and merely 4 km to Gurney Drive promenade. Certainly a great halfway point between beach and the hustle and bustle of George Town.

As I went to see the room, I was amazed. The deluxe ocean front room did served my expectations – tidy, modern, beautiful sea view (you could watch sunrise from your room’s window too!), has all the basic amenities including hairdryer and iron. Oh yes, just what I needed to escape from a busy work life in Singapore. And needless to say, free wifi everywhere.20160519_183641-01_(1)[1]20160519_183622-01[1]20160519_175141-01[1]20160519_175221-01-01[1]20160519_175613-01[1]

Their staffs were helpful and friendly. It was indeed a breezy check in for me. By the way, my nth time making hotel reservation from and it has always been easy and reliable.

Waking up to this lovely view of nature.
Time to hit the breakfast buffet. 🙂20160520_073756-01[1]20160520_081524-01[1]20160520_074011-01[1]20160520_081755-01[1]
Good food with a great view. Such a combo! This was actually one of my favorite during our stay. There’s a casual restaurant with a terrace offering ocean views, as well as a bar, an outdoor pool and meeting space. There’s direct beach access.20160519_184211-02[1]20160519_184150-01[1]20160519_184426-01[1]

If you wish to go to Batu Ferringhi, they also provide free shuttle on selected hours but on a first come first serve basis. Just approach the counter and have your name listed!


So to everyone eyeing a short vacay in Penang, then Four Points by Sheraton is what I recommend for you.
Enjoy your stay!

Hotel Review: Studio M

This Chic hotel is a 14-minute walk from Chinatown metro station and merely 3 km from the Marina Bay Sands casino complex. A great area to stay if you would like to have a drink by Robertson quay at night or dine at some bistros located a stone’s throw away. For tourist or even locals, I bet this is a good catch. A hotel where price and comfort are in a very good balance. 20160621_155143-01[1]20160621_182848-01[1]Loved how the place was designed. Service was great, my check in and check out was fuss free and to mention, I made my booking again from Effortless! They have a bamboo-themed eatery and a cafe/bar with complimentary buffet breakfast. Hmm, Food is not bad though. 20160621_183021-01[1]20160621_183641_001-01[1]It’s actually good for birthday celebrations. In fact, On my stay was actually the day before my birthday. Invited my girlfriends to come over for some drinks till they knock off. lol. Good thing it never happen anyway. haha! As you age, perhaps you no longer like heavy drinking sesh and unli convo while munching foodstuff will definitely do. Raise your feet if you agree! 🙂20160621_143122-01[1]20160621_143430-01[1]20160621_161742-01[1]20160621_174514-01[1]20160621_172137-01[1]I would strongly recommend Studio M hotel for your staycation and holidays. The loft concept is lovely and their front line is so polite and friendly. Stayed at executive loft by the way, and I loved it!

Cheers to life. Happy 27th to me! =)
