Great view, big spacious room, friendly and accomodating staffs.”
Seriously, everything is perfect even with a glitch. Had some hiccups with airport transfer but the staffs managed to settle the issue fast and quick. Very very efficient. I hope I can say their names but different staffs attended to me and all are very attentive to my request and help to settle the issue. Breakfast spread are notbfor heavy breakfast eaters but not a problem for us. Housekeeping too was fast and efficient. Had trouble with a toilet and a glass broke, they quickly attend to it to clean up the mess and replace the necessary things that got affected. Direct access to Tanjung Bungah beach from the hotel too. Kudos and thank you to all the staffs and of course, Flamingo Hotel by the Beach itself. A sure return to this hotel for sure.
nice beach view ”
i stayed at flamingo for 3 nites eventhou my room Is stated as hill view,i do have partial view of the sea. Every mornin lookin fwrd for the sunset.Its the best feeling of relaxation. Hotel breakfast is a must try and its a thumbs up on the food,having brkfast siting next by the pool,is a gd feelin Toilet are clean and room are spacious with comfortable beds,tv flat screen and movies cable channel. You can walk to the beach for a scroll or sunbathing. Location: tanjung bunga is in between of batu ferringhi (uphill) and georgtwn n gurney(dwnhill). if u wana have escapade from the city. Flamingo hotel, this is the best choices. If u wana have the best of everyting then u can try and stayed at gurney drive thats where the updated branded malls located and nite hawker street food (must go! ) taxi is difficult to get and they dun used meter to get ard.so mostly u can take the bus which is juz infront of the hotel. Bus 101 & 103 the same way for u to go to ferringhi or georgetown (komtar). Bus waiting is so long and can be very impatient unless u dun mind playing waiting game
What a pleasant surprise!”
i did not realise that flamingo hotel by the beach was formerly crown jewel hotel when i made the booking. crown jewel hotel was not up to our expectations when we last visited penang a few years back and we were apprehensive when we check into the hotel. what a pleasant surprise- flamingo hotel by the beach, newly renovated and refurbished with its spacious room, super-sized single bed which can fits 2 person and well maintained room facilities won us over easily! the hotel has direct access to the beach and though the hotel was full during the time we stayed there, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would not hesitate to recommend to our family and friends. the only shortcoming was the limited car park space and that there was no lift to the carparks making it inconvenience to elderly people or for those with mobility issue.
Nice hotel with a nice view of Sea and Hills”
I stayed in Flamingo from 27th Jan12 to 29th Jan12. We booked two Sea view rooms with breakfast. The hotel has 17th floor with Sea view deluxe room till 15 th floor. My recondation you should stay at a higher floor 10-15. The best room can be 1503. The breakfast was very good with multiple options of Veg and Non veg food. The swimming pool is also good.The only thing which I don't like about the hotel they close there swimming pool bar at 7pm, which is according to me is early by an 1hr. The best beach of Penang is Batu Ferringi, so if you want to enjoy the Beach along with water sports you should go to Batu Ferringi. However Penang has lot of traffic, so to avoid time delay, tanjung bungah is good which is in middle of Batu ferringi and Georgetown.There is a very good coffe shop near Flamingo "Kipotan White Coffee" - I enjoyed the coffee
I plan to go Penang with my wife for a relax 3d2n holiday. This is the first time I stay at this area, and the location is just nice It is not far from town but I do not face any traffic issue. It is just by the sea side and I can enjoy the sea view just outside the window and also the beach by just few steps from the hotel The room is big and clean and with a big safety box. The buffet breakfast is another selling point, the food that prepared is very nice. If I going to Penang for holiday, the Flamingo hotel will be my first choice!
Flamingo by the Beach”
As the hotel has just been recently refurbished, I personally think that it is one of the finest hotel at Tanjung Bungah. It has the "new" feel when i stayed there. Rooms were very comforting and the swimming pool is the most attractive feature of the hotel. A bar with jacuzzi attached to the pool with some music makes it more relaxing than ever. Overall a satisfying stay I had with Flamingo. I will be back. Thumbs up.
location and price”
the Hotel gave good price, facilities and location. nonetheless, Tanjung Bungah or Penang as a whole, not really offering much-to-wonder beach-tourism activities i.e. the beaches are dirty or muddy, hence, being 'at the Beach' Hotel, it was not really a bonus nevertheless, the Hotel is still a good choice, free-wifi, breakfast, relaxing views and parking spaces. to be fair, we were there during weekdays, so less people around compared to during weekdays surely
If you want to enjoy your vacation in Penang island, I would recommend you stay at this Flamingo Hotel by the beach. You can easily reach the hotel from the airport either by cab or bus; a bus shelter is just in front of the hotel. Besides, if you want to have a tour around the island, just go to the lobby and you will find a tourist & transportation services offering tour package at your choices. So, why don't you give it a try?
Amazing sunrise holiday experience ”
We had an amazing time at Flamingo Hotel with the unbelievably cheap AGODA discount. It was a great idea getting up early to experience the sunrise, and to go exploring amongst the rocks and seaside vegetation before a hearty complimentary breakfast back at the hotel. We were in the hillview room on the 14th floor on the first night, which was brightly lit with natural sunlight and, although the balcony faced southeast into another building, the sea was perfectly visible when standing on the balcony itself. On the second day, we paid a little extra for a seaview room. Although on the 6th floor, the balcony, facing true west, allowed us to view a ravishing sunset while sitting in bed. What a timeless, fulfilling moment! My companion fell asleep, so I greeted the sunset by playing some music on my erhu (2-stringed fiddle) and intoning an old chant about the sea. My companion soon awoke up to the sounds of my instrument and we spent the next few minutes singing together. The internet connection was very strong in the hillview room, but much weaker in the seaview. In fact, it completely stopped working after a while, so we were unable to book our accommodation in Singapore for the following night. But this is our fault for not planning ahead and not the hotel's. We fell in love with Xiao Bai, the resident white cockatoo, who reminded us of home (Australia) and fed him some local peanuts bought from a local minimart a few minutes up the hill. We enjoyed the gym and the pool, and the carp in the pond were so graceful and elegant. The all-you-can-eat complimentary breakfast was stunning. It was an expansive gourmet mixture of local and western food with your choice of freshly cooked omelettes, scrambled or fried eggs. I enjoyed the breakfast options on the first day with guava juice and wished I had enough space for the local Prawn Mee. I wish I had known that a different local dish would be offered the next day (Village style noodle soup). For lunch, we were very imp
We spent 2 nights at Flamingo Hotel by the Beach. The hotel is newly renovated, a room and the bathroom was spacious, clean and pleasant. We booked a hillview room, nevertheless we were able to enjoy the seaview from our balcony, also. The hotel was a little crowded due to the holiday season, so the breakfast took longer than usual. The hotel has direct access to the beach which is very convenient. The hotel is centrally located, so all major sights at the city center are aesy to access.
Good location with good view ”
This hotel located at Tanjung Bungah and it is easy to access Georgetown the capital city of Penang. Our room is facing the sea and pool. The scenery is very beautiful especially in the early morning. The food provide in the restaurant at the hotel is quiet good but if you plan to get something special, this hotel is nearby to a locall stall that provided special Penang dishes such as Pasembur, Laksa Penang, Char Kuew Teow and etc. Everything is good in this hotel with affordable prize. The satff is nice and the pool is clean and spacious.
Like This Hotel a Lot”
My experience staying at the Flamingo was 100% positive. The room was very spacious, and the views from the balcony overlooking the sea and mountains made it moreso. The pool area, with bar and restaurant, was relaxing and fun. Food at the restaurant might be considered a little expensive for eating in Malaysia, but it was of excellent quality with a good choice on the menu. The cafe has a pleasant atmosphere overlooking the pool and beach. My check-in and check-out took about five minutes each. The room was cleaned at a reasonable hour each day. There's lots to do on the beach in the cooler hours of later afternoon, although swimming in the sea is a little risky because of jellyfish. Didn't bother me, though, because the pool is so nice. The price of beer is astronomical, even at "happy hour." However, there's a nice beer and wine shop across the road near the walking bridge. Prices are good. You can sit outside and have a beer or wine and talk with the local people, who are very nice and friendly. There are also some local restaurants across the road. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. My stay was extremely relaxing. Taxis to other beaches are available and inexpensive if you want to get away in the evening. The neighborhood is clean, attractive, and quiet. I highly recommend this hotel.
fun stay @ flamingo”
Going to Penang and staying at FLAMINGO HOTEL by the beach ( De Luxe-Sea View) I rate it 8/10. The hotel room is clean and also the towels....and besides the most important thing is that it is situated by the beach ...in the morning u can do horse back riding,swim at the hotel swimming pool...stroll on the beach... in the afternoon u can ride the ATV, do parasailing, jetski...and if you are tired u can just relax on the sunbed while waiting for your prince charming. Generally its a very nice hotel in a very good location....and besides GOOD rate too...thanks AGODA...looking forward for more beautiful, affordable and clean hotel with AGODA on my next trip to other place.
Comfortable and great service”
Its very confortable because in Flamingo hotel by the beach i can do a lot of thing with my wife. The beach is so beautiful and near to the hotel and they provide a lot of sea sport activities. It also have big pool. The food realy nice and i realy like the barbeque. The price for the barbeque also not so expensive. For the breakfast, they provide a lot of choices for you and it realy delicious.
Spacious and Clean Rooms with Quiet Beach...Nice!”
we were there for 2 nights and really enjoyed the stay. the good:- rooms: big, clean, superb view. beach: clean and quiet. (this is in tanjung bungah and less crowded compared to batu feringghi) service: requested for extra pillow and mat, were delivered in 5 minutes. (better than some of the more expensive hotels i have stayed) food: only one restaurant but they changed the menu daily. and tons of great makan place nearby, so no need to worry. the bad:- free internet was really slow. overall: well worth the money.
Nice cosy hotel by the beach and good breakfast buffet spread!”
Stayed here sometime last year when my family and I extended our stay in Penang on a short notice. Loved our stay here as the staff were very friendly and rooms were spacious & clean. The room also had a wide balcony facing the beach. The breakfast spread had various delicious Malaysian & western food. The coffee house verandah overlooks the swimming pool and it was a nice place to keep an eye on your children while they swim. Thank you Flamingo hotel for a perfect stay. Hope to come here again!
I booked the room with sea view. The room is spacious with large 2 single bed. They have large pool and connected with the bridge to the beach. Its beautiful and great place for relax. Compare to the other hotels in Tg Bungah, this hotel provide more parking and easy to access. Breakfast has lot of choices including vegetarian section.And for pastry, they baked outside the the kitchen so you could enjoy fresh and hot pastry from the oven.

Lovely hotel with big rooms but remote location”
The hotel is located in Tanjung Bungah and not Batu Ferringhi, this is approx 10 mins bus ride away which the hotel provides from 7.30-10.30pm. The hotel is located in a remote area and there is not much around it, saying that the hotel is a lovely hotel with really big, modern and clean rooms. It overlooks the beach and has a great view of the sea. The staff and really nice and friendly and the food is really nice. I would recommend this hotel if all you want to do is sit by the pool or the beach but if you want nightlife then this isnt the hotel for you as Georgetown is 45 mins away. Be aware, all Penang beaches have a big jellyfish problem so you cant really swim in the sea.
Good hotel to escape the hustle and bustle”
from the Flamingo you can ride into Georgetown on the free tourist bus which stops just outside the hotel. When you have finished sight seeing or the heat has become too much for you then you can hop on the bus (avoid rush hour) and return to the calm atmosphere of the hotel and enjoy the large pool, the beach or the terrace. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The bathrooms new and clean. The Flamingo has the facilities of a large hotel and lacks a bit of character but is excellent value. The breakfast is buffet style although you can order omelettes and other dishes. You can eat in the dining room or out on the terrace overlooking the ocean. If you want to escape the heat and bustle of Georgetown then this is a good and reasonable option.
Very nice environment, worth for the price.”
This was the 3rd times I stayed in Flamingo Penang. It was my first choice hotel in Penang since my first experience it. The environment is clean and the room decoration was so nice not only for couple but for family with chindren as well. The bed size is langer compare with other hotel. The most attractive activity is you can easily walk to the beach to enjoy with all the water sport games provided. And it is also within 15 minutes drive to Gurney walk and Teluk Bahang for seafood.
