Penang Malaysia news and views.
Yet again another material from Ken Hunts Food. Very likely among the most helpful creators of material online.
An elegant-lofty building next to the central shopping mall of Ipoh- Ipoh Parade; apart from its strategic location in the heartland of Ipoh town, The WEIL Hotel is fully equipped with everything you need for a seriously comfortable stay. Opened in early December of 2014, WEIL Hotel has been upholding its status as the town’s most glamorous hotel and to live up to its standard as a 4-star hotel. The city hotel is also the de-facto hotel choice for many corporate events or special occasions… or merely a time for celebration over good food.
WEIL Hotel houses more than 300 rooms and suites… which include the usual Superior, Deluxe, Premier Rooms as well as Suites and Concept Rooms. Though all rooms and suites would come with comfy beds, handpicked Italian amenities, standalone bath tubs, rain showers; the Concept Rooms are especially worth-mentioning. Overlooking Ipoh’s beautiful skyline, the Concept rooms rest at the top floor of WEIL Hotel…. meant to be distinguished as a Boutique Hotel within a business hotel. Designed in 4 exclusive room types- Brewster (prepare for the Royal treatment with a touch of British colonial elegance), Summer Bliss (stylish urban retreat with relaxing charm), Miners (Oriental-inspired design features with old-fashioned charm and wood furnishings) and Telegraph (eclecticism of 1920s Soho when Art meets Jazz).
Gym-goers or fitness fanatics would be glad to know that there is an infinity pool at the rooftop of WEIL Hotel and a Gym for hotel guests. The pool at the rooftop offers breath-taking panoramic view of Ipoh city while you soak and relax in the waters. It is also one of the popular spots for taking attractive Instagrammable photos. The Gym on the other side, may be a little small in size but the gym equipment and fitness machines are all in almost-new conditions, and you get to find all necessary equipment there too.
WEIL Hotel can be easily accessible from the main road of Jalan Sultan Idris Shah, a short walk from SMK Sam Tet and Ipoh’s famous Tong Sui street; and of course, a short drive from the city center of Ipoh town. There is also a linkway at the hotel’s lobby to Ipoh Parade Shopping Mall.
On Food and Beverages, WEIL Hotel houses 4 restaurants that would pamper all guests with ample dining choices. The 4 restaurants are Tiffin (All Day Dining Restaurant), Yuk Sou Hin (fine Chinese food), The Deck Gastrobar (rooftop dining bar) and Tea Lounge (Tea-riffic place known for its Afternoon Tea packages).
Exclusively for Concept room guests, guests can indulge complimentary evening Canapes and beverages from 6 pm to 8 pm daily at the Concept Lounge.
Concept room guests can opt to have their breakfast at the Concept Lounge. Though slightly limited, the breakfast choices are of premium quality as compared to the usual options. The Premium Breakfast at the Concept Lounge starts from 7 am to 10:30 am. Perfect for guests who prefer quieter and more relaxing atmosphere.
Tiffin, right next to the hotel lobby would be the restaurant offering hotel guests their buffet breakfast. More choices are available as compared to the Concept Lounge, with live cooking stations around. One of the highlights of the buffet spread would be their Nasi Lemak, Tiffin’s rendition would make any Malaysian proud. The creaminess and fragrance of the Rice completes the delicacy, even more irresistible with its boldly spiced Chili paste. Daily Buffet Breakfast starts from 6:30 am to 10:30 am.

One of the tallest restaurants in town, The Deck Gastrobar can be found at the top of Weil Hotel Ipoh… on the roof top to be precise. The height offers amazing view… overlooking the bustling Ipoh town. Guests get to choose if they would prefer to be seated outside for a more outdoorsy ambiance or the fully air-conditioned inside… equipped with comfortable seating and cozy atmosphere. The menu features a great range of Western-European choices, alongside with some Malaysian-influenced international dishes. The Chef’s specials are good options for those who are new to the place. The budget-watchers would be glad to know that the price range is definitely affordable, with reasonable prices and generous serving portion.
Equally delicious is Perak Snapper…. skillfully cooked Snapper topped with a winning Nyonya-together with the firm-fresh Snapper, the combo is most lovely and delectable. On a side note, guests will be served with their in-house baked Bread… an outside-crisp and inside-fluffy Bread, to be enjoyed with their home-made Herb Butter.

But the must try item would be their (at least for me) Signature Smoked Duck with Lychee Wood… a dish that cannot easily be found elsewhere (non-existence in Penang). The Smoked Duck comes with crisp skin and juicy meat. The flesh is cleverly imbued with a unique, second to none smokiness. The Duck is more than good enough on its own but if you would prefer a little sour-sweet touch, the Plum sauce would be a nice addition. Before you end the meal, complete it with a sweet ending by having the Pan Fried Chinese Pancake with Red Bean Paste and Chilled Avocado Puree with Sago; the former one comes with crisp-flaky pastry skin sandwiching lightly sweetened Red Bean paste while the latter choice satisfies the palate with its refreshing but alluring flavor.
