I have stayed at some pretty great hotels in the past but the Lone Pine really impressed me!
I loved everything about the hotel, the buildings and decor are beautiful...calming white walls with bright pops of colour here and there, shutters, hammocks, throw pillows, fantastic art works. Everything is clean and crisp, the beds are comfy, the bathroom is luxurious, and the staff are friendly and accomodating. There are lots of little touches which really make the difference, such as free internet and massage thongs! I particularly loved the little shuttered patio with daybed off our room which gave us a great view of the beach.
We enjoyed the buffet breakfast, had another great lunch at the Bungalow restaurant and made our way through a lot of cocktails on the very long list. We spoke to the manager who told us about the history of the Lone Pine and his memories of it from years ago, which was really interesting.
Of course in Penang you will want to visit the hawker stalls to sample all the delicious food available and that's just a few steps to the right as you leave the hotel. The night market is great for shopping every night after dinner.
We had a fantastic half day tour organised by the hotel (our tourguide's name was Vijay) and saw the fishing village, butterfly farm, little India, E & O hotel, and so many other sights. I also had a great treatment at the spa which I would recommend to anyone wanting to relax and make the most of their holiday.
In all, I loved everything about this hotel, and would love to return.
