Indulge In Private Pools & So Much More At Lexis Suites Penang

Lexis Suites Penang is redefining a new kind of accessible luxury with individual dipping pool and steam room in all of its 222 suites.

When in Penang, most travelers may instantly flock to bustling George Town, but head southward and there’s a different air to the island. Bayan Lepas might be known as one of the oldest industrial zones in Penang, but its farming and fishing culture remains to enhance tranquility by the sea. Capturing the best frame of it all, is located merely 10 minutes from Penang International Airport and 15 minutes away from the Second Penang Bridge: Welcome to Lexis Suites Penang.

The spacious hotel encompasses 222 roomy suites; each boasts a private balcony, dipping pool, steam room and incredible views of local landscape. Not the mention, the plethora of indoor activities offered by Lexis Suites Penang permits a fun-filled vacation without ever leaving the hotel.

DIPPING POOLS

The most luxurious and unique feature of Lexis Suites Penang remains to be sumptuous individual dipping pools inside every suite. The pools are built into every private balcony that overlooks fishing villages or the magnificent Straits of Malacca. A serene getaway sinks into reality when guests can soak their bodies while staring into the deep oceans that shift from a peachy sunrise to a lavender sunset.

Ever dreamed of gazing at stars cruising through the night sky? Since the hotel is situated near the airport, flickers of lights from airplanes that take off and land, especially during nightfall, transcend into a romantic scenery. As if stars fly from one side of the ocean to another, into a veil of deep navy. Hence, the most beneficial advantage of individual pools in every balcony not only allows the ultimate privacy but also, 24/7 access from bedroom to the pool permits an elevated indulgence. From day to night.

In addition, next to every dipping pool is a steam room adorned with ivory tiles, capacious enough to fit at least 3-4 guests all at once so everyone can be pampered in recovery of muscles, detox and clearing of pores for a great night of sleep.

MAGNIFICENT SEA VIEWS

Besides the obvious and marvelous view of Straits of Malacca, Lexis Suites Penang also offers a different kind of setting given by what many travelers refer to as a “diamond in the rough,” or the township of Teluk Kumbar.

Stretched along the seashore are resting fishing boats and local houses spread throughout the wild greenery of a region prospered from fishing and rice farming. Despite that this area has industrialized in recent decades, rustic boats and quaint homes remain to emanate a sense of calmness by the water. Looking down from one of many hotel balconies, it’s easy to relax in a peaceful hideaway.
