We are living in Penang for almost 3 years now but this is our first time to check-in to Hard Rock Hotel. We booked it last minute after we had a long day in Penang National Park. We went to Turtle and Monkey Beach and boy we had a blast! I appreciate the fact that we don’t need to always travel abroad or ride the plane in order to have a relaxing holiday.
So we decided to stay in this hotel (thank you Agoda) and we had a lovely time even though it’s just 1 night. The hotel is situated in Batu Ferringi Beach.
Summer had great time swimming in the pool. There’s a part wherein it is shallow and the floor is sandy so it’s perfect for toddlers! Don’t forget to bring your beach toys. There’s also different sizes and shapes of slides that kids and even adults can enjoy. They have huge floaters too but you need to rent this one.
So when the night came and the little one was sleeping we sneaked out to get some drink in Hard Rock Cafe and chilled with their live band! Ooops don’t report us to the police for leaving a 2 year old girl in the room. The bar is in ground floor and our room is 2nd floor so it’s not too bad.
We left one of our phone in video mode so we can actually see her while enjoying the night. Yay for technology!!
The best thing about Hard Rock Hotel is that the beach is just in front of it. Literally just few steps away! We love nature and we ended up not just swimming but picking up a lot of beautiful shells.
If you are just staying for 2 days 1 night, you save a lot of time travelling. If you are the adventurous kind, you can opt for water sports like Parasailing, Banana boat, jet ski etc. Just go outside the hotel and talk to one of the locals offering their services there.
There’s also a lot of great dining places to choose from that is not so far from the hotel :
- Bora Bora
- Ferringi Garden (this is very beautiful restaurant with a lot of fresh flowers and plants )
- Andrews Restaurant (one of our favourite)
Living in a beautiful island like Penang it’s easy to take things for granted. Going for staycation like this helps me to be present and to be grateful on the things I have. I don’t need to spend a fortune in a big vacation if paradise is just in my doorstep.
Before we checked out we tried their play room for kids.
And oh don’t forget before checking out, have some selfies with your favourite rock stars!! They are hanging around the hotel everyday❤️😁
Thanks for reading and see you in our next adventure!
