G Hotel Gurney Penang Unveils A New Facelift - Luxury of Comfort and Style.

The brand, G Hotel is no stranger in the market and the hotel has just recently completed a RM35 million makeover unveiling a complete modern and fresh new look with chic lobby, contemporary rooms, latest amenities, trendy food and beverage outlets and sophisticated meeting rooms. Shopaholics, rejoice as the 312-room designer hotel is strategically located just a stone's throw away from not 1 but 2 popular malls; Gurney Paragon and Gurney Plaza, and it is just walking distance from the famous Gurney Drive hawker eateries

There are so many words to describe my feelings, the excitement, joy, feeling special, fabulous, satisfied and many more. I shall round it up and describe my one night stay at G Hotel with one word, WOW! I was given the opportunity which was indeed such a privilege, to stay for one night in the newly refurbished Executive Room at G Hotel Gurney Penang and the hotel just gives you that special WOW feeling while you are with them.

Any guest who walks through the entrance of the hotel will be fascinated by the captivating design of the glass lobby that is furnished with Italian designer furniture such as Minotti and Porada.
 Truly one of its kind here in Penang.

The hotel’s lounges, restaurants and bars have also been revamped and reintroduced to guest. G Lounge, an extension of G Hotel Gurney’s main reception, emerge seamlessly as guests traverse the grand lobby concourse with exquisite contemporary Italian designer furniture. 

The personalized check-in process was over in blink of an eye at the Executive Lounge. All I had to do was sit back, relax and enjoy my cute and adorable welcome ice cream. It was so quick that before I could even finish my ice cream, the staff was back with the document for me to sign and the room key cards were handed to me.   

Now how can you resist such cute and adorable welcome ice creams? 

The moment I stepped into the Executive Room, my jaws dropped. I was blown away. Frankly, I wasn't sure what to expect upon stepping in but the room was just simply amazing. Spacious, new, sleek, contemporary, comfort and luxury; everything that makes a perfect stay. 

Oh look! There's even welcome goodies in the room too. Awwww!

The room features United Kingdom’s Camerich lifestyle furnishings, Serta Royal Platinum Mattresses, 300 thread count linens, Herman Miller designer work chairs, 55 inch smart HD LED TVs, Appelles eco-friendly toiletries, free non-alcoholic minibar and 150Mbps high speed WIFI in all rooms and throughout the hotel. Now what more could you possibly ask for? 

The bed was heavenly. The comfort lying on it makes you feel like you just want to lay on it all day long. Not not only the bed is big, the SMART TV is huge too.

I love the idea of how the hotel separates the bed area from the work space. The Herman Miller designer work chair certainly helps you work and feel better.

Feeling thirsty? There's so much to choose from; capsule coffee, Milo, Tea, Nescafe and chilled can drinks too. 

I personally love the premium Appelles eco-friendly toiletries that comes all the way from down under, Australia. 

As a hotel in-house guest, you will be thrilled to know that you are entitled for a 50% discount for buffet lunch and buffet dinner at Taste Cafe located at the G floor by the lobby. Feast into a wonderful spread of scrumptious delicacies at such an irresistible offer.

Spotted beside the bed is a pillow menu. Wait, what! A pillow menu? Yes, G Hotel Gurney goes the extra mile in making sure that you have a proper sleep on your preferred type of pillow. 

Another fascinating item found was the digital alarm clock cum speaker box found on the side table. Apart from time and alarm, all you need is a bluetooth connection and voila, you can have you favourite song played via this speaker box. How cool is that.

One of the many perks of staying in the Executive Room and above is the access to the Executive Lounge which is open from 6am until 10pm. That I must admit, it was my paradise. Set in a nice, comfy and cozy ambiance, the Executive Lounge is a perfect set to enjoy the beautiful scenery overlooking the sea while enjoying all the free-flow drinks and beverages it offers.   

While from 6pm until 8pm, the Executive Lounge serves light bites to the guests. It's a small scale buffet, but more than enough to satisfy your palate and making your tummy a happy one. By the size of mine grew, it certainly was more than happy. LOL

This is like the ultimate section as apart from the chilled beers in the chiller, you will be spoilt for  choice of the available wine and liquor all there for you to enjoy away.

Night was spectacular, the view, the ambiance and I slept like a baby haha.. Next moment, it was already time for breakfast. 
The another perk was for breakfast, you are able to enjoy dining at the Executive Lounge or down at Taste Cafe. 

These are taken at the start of the breakfast at the Executive Lounge. Egg counter, pastries and bakes, cold cuts, salad, fried noodles, porridge, and many others. 

That pic above, is the perfect start of the day :)

While at Taste Cafe, it's was eat like a king feast. Huge wide selection of variations and everything looked so appetizing. From local items and western, to some chinese asian breakfast delicacies too. That's when you wished you had a bigger and wider tummy to fill all those heavenly goodies in.  Get your tissues ready as you are about to drool while scrolling below. 

I sure wished that was my daily breakfast :)

Taste Cafe, offering the freshest ingredients all day long with the first ever Lava Stone barbeque grill imported from Indonesia is a must try. Another must try spot is Tree Bar which located at the al fresco area. A favourite amongst the happy hour goers, is the largest alfresco bar in Penang which sits perfectly under an 80-year-old ‘Albizia Saman’ rain tree.
