Penang Family Hotels

Our family had a wonderful time in Penang! There is so much to see and do (and eat!). No matter what your budget, we have a selection of the best places to stay in Penang with kids. The Batu Ferringhi area is located along the beach but unfortunately there is lots of jelly fish so best not to swim here. There are lots of family friendly resorts here and plenty to do. Georgetown is another popular area to stay, in the heart of the city.
