Malaysia – The Royale Bintang Hotel, Penang

Location: The Royale Bintang Hotel, Penang, Malaysia 


Review: The gym at the Royale Bintang Hotel is located next to their swimming pool in a small air conditioned room. The gym is for hotel guests only and is accessed using a keycode given on check in. The gym provides free filtered water and towels for free but no other products are available. 

This gym contains: 

  • Running machines 
  • cycling, cross trainer 
  • Multi gym 
    • Leg press
    • Leg extension 
    • Low Row 
    • Lat pulldown 
    • Chest press
    • Chest fly 
  • Adjustable Bench 
  • Up to 10kg dumbbells
  • Yoga mats 
  • Swiss balls  


Who is this gym for? – This gym is suitable for all levels, however anyone looking to train with heavy weights or olympic lifts should probably give this one a miss. The lack of heavy dumbbells made working out here difficult.

Tip: The gym is open until late, but that does mean that it is next to the dessert station during dinner time. Prepare for some dirty looks as other people pile into the ice cream as you do your crunches!
