The Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang is the oldest hotel in Penang and has stood as a testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era. The hotel has in many ways come to represent Penang, it’s story inextricable woven into the island’s history and its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl of the Orient.
Today, E&O Hotel is fully owned and managed by the Eastern & Oriental Berhad Group and the hotel had a complete makeover in 2001. It is now recognized as a 5-star establishment with British colonial architecture, Moorish minarets and has a substantial seafront. The E&O Hotel is a popular venue for destination weddings for internationals and also the locals. The hotel is a peerless venue for grandeur and prestige, with state-of-the-art technology and professional team of event organizers. The Grand Ballroom at the Heritage Wing can accommodate up to 400 guests with a full stage, royal boxes and a gallery. Meanwhile the Macalister Ballroom at the Victory Annexe has a seating capacity of 300 and there are also five function suites that can comfortably hold groups of 15 to 180 people. Unknown to many, E&O Hotel Penang has several locations within the hotel compounds that can hold spectacular garden weddings.
The British colonial architectural style and extraordinary facade makes for a superb location for weddings and also pre-wedding photo shoots.
