Remember this place? It was the hotel that set the standard for luxury in Penang. But today it lies abandoned and forgotten, its 18-acre site of concrete disrupting the lush greenery of Teluk Bahang.
In its heyday, it was the choice destination for the elite. Some even dubbed it a six-star hotel. Today, people are calling it a “ghost hotel”.
Today it stands as a monument – to what? You tell me.
Meanwhile, we have another resort abandoned in Pulau Jerejak though that hasn’t stopped others from coming up with new plans for luxury hotels, along with 1,200 homes, on the island – instead of leaving it as an eco-paradise for future generations to enjoy.
