Somewhere down in the #BatuFerringhi area, a newly-refurbished playground awaits us. After two days of rocking fun, our Day 3 in the sun-kiss island of Penang took us to a premier luxury boutique hotel, the award-winning 5-star Lone Pine Hotel!

Its colonial charm, heritage alike, amid #Casuarina trees along the beautiful garden has also prompted #TripAdvisor to recognise Lone Pine Hotel as the most voted top 10 boutique beach resorts in the world!

Why the name 'Lone Pine'? On the land where the bungalow stood, was then a solitary Casuarina tree, which was mistakenly thought to be a species of pine, hence the hotel’s namesake #LonePine..........

A #Lepak corner greeted us along the way. In Malay, it simply means to chill out, or laze around. Love the traditional way of addressing the relaxation corner!

Not a gaming fan? Well, the hotel's Gerai offers a treasure trove of unique #Malaysian keepsakes & mementos more usually found in Penang’s antique shops than a hotel gift shop.

Thank you Lone Pine, for hosting my family in your gorgeous #hotel!

Noteworthy: Penang, 20 June 2012 - It was a different kind of Saturday morning gathering for the staff of the Lone Pine Hotel. Armed with rakes, shovels, baskets & garbage bags, the group embarked on a worthwhile exercise at the Batu Ferringhi beach area fronting the boutique beach resort.

Participants included associates & managers from various departments of the Lone Pine Hotel. The Penang Municipal Council assisted with provision of equipment & eventually, the disposal of the garbage collected, which mostly consisted of PET bottles, plastic wrappers, styrofoam food containers, broken glass bottles, glass bits & garments.

Taking care of the environment via cleaning up is part of the community service that the caring staff of the Lone Pine Hotel performs frequently to ensure that the beach fronting their hotel remains pristine & pleasant for its guests & the public.

In support of this initiative, the hotel also hopes to engage the public’s cooperation to maintain the cleanliness of the beach area to make it as pleasant as possible for everyone to enjoy.
