Turning a year wiser in September at G Hotel Kelawai

By Gaylen KaSai - Sunday, September 23, 2018

We love the pool!
Turned a year wiser early September, how do we celebrate birthdays after 21? Well long gone are the partying days for me after the arrival of the younger one 2 years ago. Lol. That’s what kids and age does to people I guess. Well, I am not sure if you remember me and hubs attending G Hotel’s Media Night a few months ago, and hubs actually won a Deluxe room from the games! So I decided to spend my birthday there just chilling and enjoying the Hotel’s facilities. Thanks to G Hotel for the upgrade too! The Executive Premier room! G Kelawai’s second best room category!

G Hotel Kelawai

I have been to G Kelawai many times, but I have not stayed there before. No, this is not the G Hotel that faces the sea, so don’t get confused altho hotel guest from both property do enjoy cross-usage of facilities. This is the one at Kelawai road if you are familiar with Penang.  G Kelawai is located between Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon, and a short walk from Gurney Drive where you will find all the yummy street food. No, not doing that traveller thingy this round. I just want to enjoy the hotel. Watch the video here!

We arrived at G Hotel Kelawai at around 2.15pm and did all the checked in. Smooth! We went to our rooms and we were welcomed into a huge room! Approx 45 square meters. Nicely decorated room *totally my type of decor . There’s a leather couch, a coffee table and there’s a fresh fruits basket on top of the table too. Apples, Bananas, Oranges, Grapes and Dragon Fruits! The Executive Premier Room comes with a minibar which is complimentary. There is also a nice work desk in the room which comes with a ergonomic Herman Miller designer work chair! And I simply love the table lamp. WiFi is complimentary and for once I am happy to say that it is high-speed as promised. I hate it when places promises high speed Wi-Fi but I can’t even login! The Executive Premier Rooms comes with a huge bathtub and a view overlooking Mount Erskine! The bath amenities provided are by APPELLES Apothecary & Lab from Australia which smells heavenly! Now the most important part of a hotel room for me would be the bed! Yes, G Hotel Kelawai has always been proud of their Serta mattress! Its among the comfiest bed I have slept in. I must give them a thumbs up for the bed. They also have a pillow menu if you are the fussy type.

Love the side table. Very thoughtful. You can place your phone here and bath salts provided
Do you know what’s the best part of  being in the The Executive Room? You have complimentary access to the The Executive Lounge which is located at the top floor of the building. The perks of being in the Executive Room is the Executive Lounge access and that means everyday during your stay from 6:00PM to 8:00PM daily, you get complimentary (alcoholic) drinks and food in the evening. So if you would like to enjoy a glass or two in the evenings, a upgrade to the Executive Room is definitely worth it as you can enjoy a selection of wines , champagne and beers alongside some light snacks and canapés.
Beautiful view of the City from the Rooftop

Breakfast is also serve here at the executive lounge if you prefer less crowd. I opted for breakfast at Spoon Cafe because Spoon Cafe has a bigger spread. The breakfast spread was good with a egg station, nasi lemak, oat porridge, roti canai and many more. There is also another cafe at G Kelawai which is the 2pm Lounge which is famed for its afternoon tea.
Nice evening dip

Chilling by the pool with a view. Instragrammable too! 

My favourite place at G Kelawai would be Gravity bar, which is where I spent my birthday with the squad. This is where the rooftop infinity pool is and it is actually large enough to swim in. Gravity also offers the perfect place for photos of my amazing city and of course the sunset!  Totally instagrammable. So we spent a great 2D1N at G Kelawai mostly at Gravity, The Pool and Room. Check out our video!

Happy Birthday to me!

I would highly recommend this hotels to business travellers with families as there are 2 malls [ Gurney Plaza & Gurney Paragon ] right beside and its great if you are having a meeting at the Executive Lounge, your family could always go shopping and keep themselves entertained while you are busy with meetings.
