Kite-flying in Penang goes back centuries. You can learn this rich Malay tradition on the beach – we offer a range of kite-flying activities suitable for kids and adults alike. Don’t forget to bring a camera to capture the experience.

Top Spinning

While you’re in Penang, why not pick up a new skill and learn to spin a top? Take the opportunity to participate in a local top-spinning game in the resort’s beautifully landscaped garden area.


Of all the kids’ activities in Penang, marbles might be the best known – and most challenging! Many variations of marbles have been played throughout the world, and we offer the opportunity to hone your skills in this timelessly fun pursuit. One way to play marbles is to have a target marble that players try to knock out of a circle with their own marbles. In another version, players try to hit each other's marbles out of a target zone. Indulge your competitive spirit and make new friends by challenging some of your fellow guests.

Cooking Demonstration

Penang is famous for its food and you can learn the secrets behind some of our exotic flavours by attending a hotel cooking demo. Come watch our resort chef as he prepares fresh, delicious local dishes in the garden area. See how quickly and easily these mouth-watering dishes are created and take your new recipes home to impress friends and family.

Sepak Takraw
