Hard Rock Hotel Penang is our accommodation during our 3 days 2 nights company trip here in Penang. Hard Rock Hotel is located at Batu Ferringhi Beach. Batu Ferringhi is one of the popular tourist destination for the beach and there are many other beautiful resorts and hotels here such as Bayview Beach Resort, PARKROYAL Penang Resort, Holiday Inn Resort Penang and Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa. It is just around 15 minutes drive to Georgetown where we spent most of our time eating local Penang food and visiting historical Penang places.
Hard Rock Hotel Penang, Malaysia’s first Hard Rock themed hotel
Front view of the hotel. There are many parking spaces here, we do not have any problem parking our cars.
The very first thing we noticed is this big guitar in front of the hotel when we reached. Since it is Hard Rock themed hotel, I guess a guitar is a must have decorative item in the Hard Rock Hotel Penang. You will see guitars everywhere in this hotel.
Laupoh posing with the giant guitar to show how big it is.
The hotel lobby with friendly staffs ready to serve you. While we are checking in, we were served refreshing fruit juice to quench our thirst from the hot weather. FREE Wi-Fi is provided in this hotel. Instruction to connect to the Wi-Fi is provided on the security key card holder. We are pretty satisfied with the Wi-Fi’s speed.
Lobby lounge in the Hard Rock Hotel with comfortable chairs and sofa for you to enjoy music at night.
The swimming pool of Hard Rock Hotel Penang. It is actually the largest free form swimming pool in Malaysia.
Since it is a Hard Rock themed hotel, you will see Beatles and other rockers everywhere.
Beatles statues for you to take photo with.
After take your selfie, don’t forget to hashtag #SelfieAtHardRock and tag @hardrockhotelpg so that they can feature your photo in social media.
A guitar with yellow smiley face. There are many other music instruments around for you to admire.
Laupoh say she wants this cello.
Photos of rock stars who I do not recognize.
The Beatles statues from the front.
I looked so thin in this reflective wall.
So I asked laupoh to shoot our thin photo together.
Michael Jackson and another rock star’s drawing along the hallway in the hotel. There are many rock stars photo and drawing in the hotel.
Saw this promotion from the Lobby Lounge which open daily from 11.00 am to 10.30pm.
The beach at Hard Rock Hotel Penang
After unloading our bags and took a quick bath, we hit the beach. The beach is clean and beautiful. There are activities available such as parasailing and jet skiing.
Spotted this green plants on the beach.
You get to see the sunset here on Hard Rock Hotel’s beach. But we didn’t wait for it as our objective in Penang is to eat as much as delicious Penang food such as our first night dinner at Kafe Tsunami Village and second night dinner at Lebuh Kimberley Street’s Awesome Penang Food.

Our king-sized bed. Very comfortable and we slept like a rock.

Laupoh spotted this cute guitar embroidery on our pillow case.
Writing table in case you need to write something or use your laptop.
The rock star sofa. Sit on it and pose like a rock star.
32-inch LCD TV in our room. There are free in-room HD blockbuster movies on demand, DVD/CD players and iPod docking station as well.
The mini pantry in our room with complimentary mineral water, coffee and tea.
The bathroom is rock star themed as well. The mirror is movable in case you want to watch your spouse ********.
The clean tower, the toilet bowl and the basin sink. Our room does not have bathtub but our other colleagues’ rooms have. How strange.
The bathroom has this window which create an infinity mirror effect.
Toiletries provided by Hard Rock Hotel Penang. Got shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, soap and other personal care items. All also smell very nice.
A closer look on the toiletries which are provided by Rock Spa in a nice golden wooden box.
At night, we went to Hard Rock Cafe located at the Ground Floor of the hotel. The cafe has a live band stage and a Rock Shop selling Hard Rock’s limited edition merchandise and souvenirs.
