At Bayview Beach Resort Penang, a tropical garden filled with slender palms is all that separates you from the long stretch of enticing white sand at Batu Ferringhi beach. Painted fishing boats ply the waters of the Straits of Malacca as they have done for centuries, creating a scenic backdrop for your Penang holiday. Adventurous guests can try parasailing and jet-skiing at our Watersports Centre, while the garden massage hut offers a romantic option for honeymooning couples. You can relax in our outdoor Jacuzzis or the serene spa. If you’re feeling active, our well-equipped, air-conditioned gym overlooks the garden, and tennis, volleyball and basketball courts reside among the trees. This is also one of the best family hotels in Penang, with dedicated play areas, professional babysitting services and 2 out of 4 swimming pools specially designed with children in mind.

The staff were friendly and helpful but the website and the rooms information on the TV need updating (I would have preferred it to be in writing not on the TV). There is no babysitting service, so our planned solo night out for our wedding anniversary (and our honeymoon that didn't happen due to covid) became another family dinner. The towels in the room and the rooms themselves really need an upgrade. There was nowhere to hang wet towels for 4 of us and when I asked for more towels, as they were wet from an earlier shower after the pool, I was told I'd be charged RM20 each towel. The swim up bar isn't open (something that was a big draw card for us) and the whole of Batu Ferringhi was just lacking a bit of life. There is no kids club (without parental supervision) so you can't leave your kids anywhere to have a massage or anything. The pool area was great and well maintained besides the lack of the swim up bar, and the kids areas were fantastic, but again, the towels etc need updating. We booked transfers through the hotel and despite confirming the day before no one arrived to take us to the airport. We were cutting it very fine for our flight despite confirming the day before. Was a bit disappointing for my first trip to Penang.

The team doesn't knows the room configuration and messed the plan from the very start of us making the reservation in your hotel. Requested for water, coffee and tea in the morning and was not delivered until we called back to them in the evening. The whole experience wasn't very nice and good.

This was a return visit after our last visit before Covid and we were not disappointed. On arrival we were met by very friendly bell boys who helped us unload our luggage from our taxi, we were then directed to reception were we were met by the very helpful Norly who soon had us booked in and on our way to our room. We had a hill view room booked that looked over the main road which surprisingly wasn’t noisy, and Enca restaurant (highly recommended), the room was looking a bit tired and could do with a revamp but everything was clean, the bed was great very comfortable. The bathroom also needs an upgrade but again was clean and towels were clean and replaced every day, the shower was over the bathtub. Breakfast time was busy but the choice was very good with both western and Asian choices. The grounds have been updated and are well maintained with plenty of space between the cabanas, all the outdoor staff were very attentive. Overall we were very happy with our time spent here and are now planning to return next year

Even though we are an older couple I appreciated the way they have the hotel facilities set up for a young family, lots of attractions for the kids around the pools. The rooms are well appointed and the bed was very comfortable, good hot water and great water pressure for showers and baths. All around a nice hotel and we would stay again when in the area.

I first visited this hotel back in 2005 and it still holds up as a no-frills decent hotel. It has immaculate gardens with palm trees and other plants. There is a swimming pool with a kids pool and a waterfall. There are plenty of loungers around. The beach is just past the gate although not many people take to sea because of jellyfish. The room is large and well kept with a comfortable bed. There is a shower over bathtub with was disappointing as the bathtub did not work well with holding water of draining it. Towels, sheets and bathroom toiletries were changed daily. Breakfast was decent with plenty of space and wide choice of food. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Stayed at the resort for 4 days and 3 nights from 29 January until 1 February 2024. The last time we were here were from 14 to 17 August 2023 (also 4 days and 3 nights). At the reception counter, I was greeted by warm, friendly and smiling Norly who recognized me immediately. As expected, checking-in at the reception counter was swift and smooth. The Family Room Hillview was spacious, clean and the air-conditioning was just right. The room came with a mini fridge, a safe, ironing board with iron and also a kettle with complimentary coffee, tea, sugar and creamer sachets. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The balcony overlooked the Batu Ferringhi Road. Across the road are Pak Mid Café, Restoren Abah and Enca Restaurant. The Hard Rock Café is just to the left of the hotel. All within 5 minutes' walk. The bathroom has a bathtub and was clean. The bath towels were very clean and soft. The pools were clean and the garden well groom and looked after. We had our breakfast every morning at the La Veranda Coffeehouse which offered a wide range breakfast buffet spread. I will review La Veranda Coffeehouse in another post. My humble opinion - It was a great family staycation.

Just a horrible. I booked and paid for 3 nights(Jan 7th to Jan 9th 2023) and wasted my money without staying even one night in this dirty hotel .I checked-in and checkout right away after seing my room. The floor was dirty. A disgusting sofa with several white stains. The pillows stinked . I could smelled it from the entrance of the room . I got an allergy from this awful room. I decided to checkout and booked a different place . Just run away from this place . No hygiene. No comfort !

Yes the hotel is quite outdated , but the friendly helpful staff , the amazing pool and gardens , and the stunning view make up for this . Clean and great value for money . Even though it was a holiday weekend there were lots of sunbeds, and many allowing us to sit in the shade and shelter from the searing sun. Bus stops located outside take you into George Town with a regular reliable service. Hotel is located next to an amazing beach bar serving fantastic meals and sunset views . Short walk to lots of other bars and restaurants and plenty of Grab taxi s available to take us further afield ( we went to Penang Hill for around £6) Breakfast provided so much choice, including freshly made omelettes and European choices such as porridge and cereals.

this place isn't the newest. Carpets probably are overdue on being cleaned. The beach is excellent. The room was comfortable. The shower didn't have very hot water. Breakfast was very crowded, but we were there for a couple of days between Christmas and New Year, so it was, likely, high season.

Stayed here around five times over the last 10 years. Won’t stay again hotel is now run by Indians and their attitude towards guest is appalling. They ask you to put your own sun-bed away after use cos their to idle to do it them selfs. And there are now no mattresses to put on the wooden sunbeds . This hotel is now for locals only and does not cater for Europeans guests as it used to. Love Batu Ferringghi but sadly not the bay view any more . Really dropped its standards sad really
