Flashback - a stay at the beautiful Hard Rock Hotel Penang

My family and I got the opportunity to stay at the Hard Rock Hotel in Penang when it was quite newly open in 2010 and it was a great experience which I wish I could do all over again...

Situated along Batu Ferringhi, Hard Rock Hotel Penang (previously Casuarina Hotel) has 249 gorgeous rock star worthy rooms with amazing views and balconies. 

The walls in the Hard Rock Hotel Penang are adorned with images, memorabilia and icons reflecting the revolution that changed the face of music, fashion and arts. It's a celebration of popular culture from the 50's through the new millennium. Its fun atmosphere and clean, modern lines make this the ultimate ROCK RETREAT for all!

With an amazing view of the pool area and also the beach and blue sea beyong, our Seaview Deluxe room came with a super comfy king-sized bed (but I heard you can also opt for a pair of single beds). 

The bed in our room was just amazingly comfortable and my little girl was in love with it..♡♥♡♥ 

The attached bathroom has lovely hot shower facilities and exclusive Hard Rock Hotel Penang toiletries.
