Hard Rock Hotel has a soft spot in Penang.
The music might be louder and hard for some. The ambiance may not suitable to holiday goers who are looking for a remote setting. The cook's food could not satisfy to everyone's liking but without a doubt Hard Rock Hotel Penang had offered another 'must go places' on your item list whenever you decided for a vocation vacation in Penang.
Situated right at the heart of Batu Ferringhi, Hard Rock Hotel has fast becoming a landmark attraction to Penang Island. After barely open last 2 months, the former Casuarina Beach Hotel is a talk of the town and I, myself look forward to having a peep of what it has to offer. The opportunity rise when I was in Penang last few weeks and with the holiday mood was still swinging high, the chance could not be missed. ;)
It just another night outing with the lads,(yes, i left milla at home). The rain did not stop us making our way to Batu Ferringhi. Eagerly for a chance to meet his idol, King Michael who was immortalised at the hotel, Encik K was all excited. Abg B, the local lad keep his composure intact even I could see the excitement in his eyes. This is his first time as well. For me, Hard Rock Hotel is just another hotel (blah la... pretending not too damn excited myself). After all, me myself had had enough of the Hard Rock Franchise in the last week and going to another one was just to fill in and get ready to be shrunk a few hundred ringgits on merchandise.
But i was wrong, i was totally wrong.
'With a total of 250 guestrooms, there is nowhere more luxurious than Hard Rock Hotel Penang to spend your holiday. With a contemporary feel, all rooms are well-designed with guests in mind.
