With the objective of providing guests with an unforgettable experience at an affordable price, Lost Paradise Resort is a tropical haven nestled within 90,000 sq. ft. of land that fronts the Andaman Sea.
Opened in July, 2013, outwardly, it is similar to other resorts at Batu Ferringhi in Penang that line the beach.
However, this boutique resort carries a distinct mix of exotic Balinese and Minangkabau architecture amidst a lush garden with a myriad of colouful flowering blooms and plants.
There are a total of 40 rooms and suites, each with its own unique design, theme and layout.
The rooms and public areas are generously decorated with a blend of woodcraft, art pieces and furniture that were procured by its owner, Dr. Chew, during his travels around the world.
The five room categories are Superior Room, Deluxe Suite, Deluxe Family Suite, Grand Family Suite and Royal Family Suite.
They are equipped with modern amenities such as air-conditioning, LED TV, WiFi connectivity and private bath.
Complimentary breakfast is available to all guests. The resort serves an array of Malaysian, Indonesian, Thai, Chinese and Western cuisine.
Most rooms offer a stunning view of the Andaman Sea, teasing guests with its waves and tides according to its mood.
When the sea is calm, grab a canoe and head out to Pulau Tikus, a magnificent island 45 minutes of paddling away.
Other activities that could be arranged include fishing, hiking, camping and island tour. Attractions nearby Lost Paradise Resort are National Park Penang, Butterfly Farm, ESCAPE: Adventureplay, Toy Museum, Floating Mosque and Penang Hill.
As for guests who are not as adventurous or would just like to spend some quiet time relaxing, they can enjoy the infinity pool or just take a stroll in the huge garden.
Within the resort grounds is a school, Lighthouse Academy, which adopts the American homeschooling programme.
Headed by Dr. Chew’s wife, Melody, the school accepts a 30% enrolment of children with special needs. Revenue from the resort is channelled towards the upkeep of Lighthouse Academy.
