While Lone Pine was one of the first hotels to pop up along Batu Ferringhi (Foreigner's Rock) in 1948, it was a recent refurbishment that made it a top pick along this famous beach. The restored grounds offer a distinct colonial charm; white wooden shutters go well with the ocean-inspired contemporary artwork. The 90 rooms offer a mixture of seafront terraces, balconies, and private courtyards. In addition to dining by the pool at the Bungalow, where the buffet breakfast
is served, you can enjoy a meal at Mastu restaurant, which offers a Japanese twist on fresh seafood and can even provide picnic bento boxes to take to the beach.
