Its bright peach-colored building, its blue free-form swimming pools and warm inviting reception area have the effect of leaving a lasting impression.
THERE are a lot of things about Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani that will stay in your mind, even days after you have left the hotel or the town.
Strong colors and good impression are not all the hotel has to bank on. Other extras are its strategic location – the modern deluxe hotel is nicely situated about 10 minutes’ drive from the Sungai Petani North exit of the North-South Highway.
Coupled with the fact that Sungai Petani is located mid-way between the busy Penang and the capital Alor Star, the hotel makes a good “home away from home” for business travelers.
Corporate staying guests have a choice of superior rooms and executive, family and junior suites – 21 units of them are equipped with private jacuzzi.
Making “life easier” for them is the neighboring town center which among others, includes Tesco Hypermarket, a number of 24-hour restaurants and convenience stores.
But if one needs to venture to the heart of town for more happening choices, it only takes less than a 15-minute drive to the bustling Sungai Petani town, Kedah.
For those in the leisurely mood, the three-star hotel is not lacking in recreational facilities. Besides the huge swimming pool, there is also a gymnasium, outdoor jacuzzi and unisex sauna, tennis and squash courts.
Outing choices, on the other hand, are numerous from Batu Hampar Recreation Park, Gunung Jerai, Sedim River Recreational Waterfall, Tanjung Dawai Fishermen Village, Archeological Museum, Pantai Merdeka, Ulu Legong Hot Spring and Tupah Waterfall Recreation Park.
The hotel is also big in the meeting, seminar and convention market, offering its Hibiscus Ballroom which can seat up to 500 persons and 10 function rooms with 10 to 60 persons capacity.
