Another Lexis resort makes this list with Lexis Suites Penang. This resort is just a 10-minute drive from Penang Airport and is located along a stretch of beach in Teluk Kumbar. What differentiates Lexis Suites Penang from its sister resorts is that instead of villas, all rooms are located within a 26-floor tower by the beach.

All 222 rooms come with a private pool and steam room 😍 Choose between the Executive Pool Suite or the Premium Pool Suite, with the former being slightly smaller (82 sqm vs. 89 sqm).

The hotel’s location is a bit far away from town and the main tourist areas, so it’ll be the perfect hideaway for your romantic getaway! It’s worth noting however that there are not many eateries within the immediate area, so if you intend to eat out you may have to travel a significant distance. On the plus side, just like the other Lexis resorts, the hotel’s in-house eateries including UMI Japanese Restaurant and Roselle Coffee House are halal-certified.
