Clove Hall is set in tropical gardens, about 10 minutes by trishaw from the Georgetown area of Penang, and a 30-minute drive from the Batu Feringghi beaches, on the west coast of Malaysia.
Fly to Penang International Airport. Click on the links below for a list of airlines which fly here.
From the Airport
It is about a 30-minute drive to Georgetown. The hotel can arrange a transfer; see Rates. Alternatively a taxi will cost around RM40, or you can take the airport shuttle from the airport to Prangin Mall - then it is a 5-minute taxi ride or 10/15 minute walk.
Cross-channel ferry services connect Georgetown and Butterworth (originally the only link between the island and the mainland until the bridge was built in 1985). High-speed ferries to the resort island of Langkawi, Kedah and Medan are also available. A taxi from the ferry port will cost around RM12.
Getting around Penang
Taxis can be flagged down, but this gets more difficult after dark, or the hotel can call you a limousine.
A scooter is best, if you can bear it. They can be rented for about RM25 for the semi-automatic and RM30 for the automatic from the fleapits and visa agents along Chulia Street, but remember to bring an international driver’s license.
There are buses, but they may be too complicated to work out. As a rule of thumb, if you’re stuck outside Georgetown and a bus going vaguely northwest says ‘Jetty’, hop on.
