E&O Hotel Heritage Wing Re-Opening and Christmas Tree Lighting.

There's just so much to love about the brand new gorgeous looking interior of the Heritage Wing of Eastern and Oriental Hotel Penang. The place underwent an extensive refurbishment which was carried out since March earlier this year and the much anticipated re-opening showcased the stunning beauty of the place with much elegance and luxuriousness of hospitality. 

Despite its major refurbishment works, the hotel has also maintained its historical grandeur elements among them is the echo dome which has certainly become part of the hotel's identity. 

We were privileged to be among the invited guests who had the chance to explore the stunning beauty of the place as well as the brand new additions to the hotel.

The evening was then followed by the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony which saw invited guests enjoying themselves to the joyous celebration. A 6-metre Christmas tree stands stall in the middle of the lobby. Guests were entertained by the classical Yuletide carols sung by the Messenger choir.
