My Christmas Wish List – Hard Rock Hotel, Penang

This Christmas, I want to tell Santa that I’ve been a good girl the whole year through. I’ll tell Santa that there is nothing I want more, except to be able to spend a night in Hard Rock Hotel, Penang.

Hard Rock Hotel, Penang * I want to spend the night in the Seaview room
* I want to be lullabied to sleep by the sounds of the gentle waves slapping against the white sandy beach..
I want to open my eyes in the morning to the full view of the beautiful sea..
* I want to cuddle up at the balcony with a cup of fresh hot chocolate in my hand..
* I want to soak in the bathtub that can fit two… * I want to take a stroll along the beach at night holding hands…
I want to sit by the pool in my bikini… :P* I want to dine in Hard Rock Cafe.
I want to listen to some good music while enjoying my meal.
I want to move my body to the rhythm.
I want to groove all night long.
I want to dance the night away…

Santa had granted half of my wish. He let me have a peek of what’s in store in there..

Ethan just loves the amazing kids’ pool.

What’s so special about them is that their pool has real sand in it. So by the beach, in the pool, you’ll have sands beneath your feet at all time!

Wouldn’t it be nice to cuddle with your loved ones by the fire place? If only it was real..

If I have the money, I’ll go for this room that opens directly to the pool and have these two hunks as my neighbour! (Santa please don’t read this part! :P)

So Santa, if you are reading, please grant me my wish. If not this year, next year will do.. Thanking you in advance ;P

  • //

    A colleague stayed at this hotel recently. I am not sure if I would be keen on this one though. Also, the room rates are pretty steep.

  • //

  • //

    Mei Teng – I know the rates are steep, that's why I have to turn to Santa :PClaire – It's so so good to have you back here. It's been pretty quiet without you and so many things happened I tell you! Lots to catch up on.. :)Mummy Gwen – Nanti Santa jeles.. dun grant me my wish! :D

  • //

    Ha hahhh…Mebbe if Santa reads the part about the hunks, he might not classify you in the "good" category. Wah…. I didn't know the hotel is so nice one. I also want !!!

  • //

  • //

    I hear if the place is overbooked, they will simply cancel the locals' bookings and give the rooms to tourists from abroad. I know some people who were looking forward anxiously…waiting for the hotel to open, and they were SO disappointed! Cursing and swearing that they will never set foot ever in that hotel!!!

  • //

    Hmm, I havent thought of my wishes to Santa….I have been girl too! :pAnd wow, I would love to stay in this Hard Rock Hotel and enjoy having hunks around me. Maybe I wouldnt be seen in bikini, unless I can trim down those excess fat off my tummy. hahaha!

  • //

    wow..sand in the pool..that's interesting..

  • //

    STP – I am one of those that has cursed on them lah dat day when I tried to book for my recent Penang trip and they flatly said 'fully booked'! cilaka punya HR… Rose – lol.. bikini ppl comes in all shapes n sizes lah.. :PWenn – Yes, very interesting

  • //

    May your wishes come true.:)

  • //

    I just came back from Hard Rock Hotel Penang yesterday. I wish I could stay in one of those rooms facing the sea and pool… where I can step out of my balcony and jump into the pool. My kids loved the pool terribly.

  • //

    I don't write to Santa anymore cos last year I wrote to him but he did not grant me my wishes! : (

  • //

    This is a nice hotel! Not bad at all! Maybe you should rub on the Aladdin lamp instead. Better chances of getting your wish : )

  • //

    foong – Oh yes.. 'rubbing' will definitely give a better effect :PHFM – you making me green with envy.. came back from HRH! Cheah – thank you :)

  • //

  • //
