A condominium with full seaview on 18th Floor, you get sunshine, breezy balmy days and ships , sampans and boats sailing in the horizon. The food is inexpensive , yet totally varied from fusion of so many cultural heritage that no one needs to cook in Penang!
The city is full of historical sights and scene but yet modern without becoming cold and impersonal.
Our condo unit is 2,880 sq foot in size. The condo has an elevated private swimming pool and overlooks the sea - facing the Straits of Malacca- where sunsets can be stupendous. There are two patios with vintage cane chairs for easy reading, sipping mojitos or just watching the glorious sun set.
The Master Bedroom is very large with a king-sized bed, and a two-seater sofa for watching telly. The ensuite bathroom has a jaccuzzi for evening soaks as well as shower stall for quick showers.
Another cozy bedroom has a queen sized bed with ensuite bathroom and toilet which is usually reserved as a guest room for singles or another couple.
The third room is used as an art studio-cum-computer room..
The living room is bright and airy with comfortable sofas and even a massage bed for in-house private massage which is very inexpensive in Penang. In fact, we have 2 such beds and it is quite an experience to have massages in your own home while listening to the sound of waves in the distance.
Two kitchens serve your cooking needs (but who needs to cook in Penang?):
An elevator ride downstairs brings you onto the beach in 1 minute; or, if you prefer the swimming pool. There's also a BBQ pit you can rent by the pool. The pool is also surrounded with greenery and easy chairs for sunning and reading. Walk on the beach early in the morning and get to meet a community of dog lovers walking their pets or in the evenings, and catch a glimpse of monitor lizards or, otters.
