Due to its location, the unit is slightly larger than other 1 bd/2 bt units in the Marina Suites.

On each floor, there is a lounging area with several sofas and a marina and ocean view.

****THE AREA****

The Marina Suites at Straits Quay is a development by the famous E&O Hotel Group and touts incredible design and aesthetic sentiments. The unit is located right above easily-accessible waterfront restaurants, cafes, bars, boutiques, massage parlors, hair salons, bike rental, and Sam's Groceria (a grocery store with local and Western goods). Tesco and other restaurants are less than a ten minute walk away.

The neighborhood around Straits Quay is very clean, safe, and convenient in its closeness to restaurants and other amenities. Take the kids to Straits Green, a free and clean water play area walking distance from the apartment. And don't forget to enjoy a walk day or night by the water, on paved walkways.

Our unit is in a wonderful location as it is located in between George Town and Batu Ferringhi, and down the road from Gurney. Spend a few days exploring the historical UNESCO city and a few more walking along the beaches or checking out The Tropical Spice Garden, The Penang Butterfly Farm, or ESCAPE Theme Park on the other side of the island.

****TO NOTE******

**(Just for your information, construction of another building has started in the adjacent lot. **Update October 24, 2016 - the windows and sliding door has been changed in the unit. This has greatly decreased the noise from the site. If you have any questions about this or want updates, please do not hesitate to ask!!)**


1) BUS

Rapid Bus line 102 picks up right outside Straits Quay. Rapid Bus line 101 picks up across from Tesco (about 10 minute walk). Both of these buses will take you either towards Batu Ferringhi or towards town where upon they will eventually stop at the Komtar Bus Terminal (where you can catch any other bus). There is also a Penang Hop and Hop Off bus stop for the beach route a few steps outside the unit!


If you have mobile data we recommend downloading the Uber app to your phone. Uber drivers are much more affordable than taxis on the island and the service is highly recommended.


If buses don't suit you or if you don't have mobile data there are always taxis that can be found right outside of Straits Quay.


Discounts are provided for a week-stay and a month-long stay!

Great apartment in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic resort and a really nice apartment. Susanna was very welcoming to my wife and I. Fantastic pool in the complex which was great for early swims ( and later ones too). Easy reach of most area on public transport if needed or grab a cab! Highly recommend this place to others!

Had a great stay - comfortable apartment, terrific location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days , enjoying all the comforts of home in a clean and roomy 1 bedroom apartment. The location above Straits Quay Mall and Marina , was so good as many restaurants, grocers and specialty shops were on our doorstep. Most enjoyable to sit downstairs on ground floor of the mall , overlooking the water. Tesco was a 5 minute walk away and Convenient to Rapid Penang bus service 101 caught out front to take you to Georgetown or north to Batu Ferringhi and further. The 102 service however, which swings by Straits Quay was “elusive “ . Grab or Uber cabs are also available. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others.

Lovely spacious apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in an area known as stairs quay, a marina that has lots of restaurants, a grocery store on site, and activities. As a woman staying there alone, it felt very safe. Lots of security people around. The pool area is fantastic, and very clean. The apartment is large, very comfortable living area, large bedroom and two bar rooms, one ensuite. It was well equipped with the basics, as well as extras. Everything worked well, the wifi was good, washing machine was very well used!

There is quite a bit of construction going on in the area, as is the case all over the island of Penang.

I had a couple of minor issues that needed to be resolved whilst I was there (2 month stay) and the managers were very quick to get things sorted out, I appreciated that.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A friendly couple owns this lovely one bedroom apartment. It is conveniently located in an upscale area and within a private residential block within Straits Quay, which means that you have easy access to the mall comprising a number of restaurants, bars and supermarket. This is a place to be if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle ie it is in a very quiet part of town. The apartment is comfortable, clean and tastefully furnished. There is a fully functioning kitchen and washing area for your use and is well stocked with the required necessities. This is a top floor unit with a big balcony, although it faces away from the sea but you will still be able to get some seaview at certain parts of the unit ie the living room and left hand side of the balcony. The gym is small but sufficiently equipped and generally unused. The swimming pool area is also large enough for a decent lap. Travel-wise, it was easy to get a taxi to get to anywhere on the island. To put things into perpspective, it would take you 15-20mins to get to Georgetown in a car. Overall, it was a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. Thanks Shuli & Miguel for making it a wonderful holiday!
