Penang Retirement Resort project delayed due to Covid-19


The completion of the Penang Retirement Resort in Batu Gantong by the Penang Turf Club has been delayed to the fourth quarter of the year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The project was originally scheduled for completion this April.

It will be made up of a seven- storey block featuring 142 units including those offering full-time nursing care.

There will be 49 units offering assisted care and 77 offering independent living with sizes ranging from 414sq ft to 1,246sq ft.

The rest of the space will be used for a wellness spa.

All units will be occupied on a leased basis with meals provided, and residents will have the option of dining in their rooms or at the resort’s restaurant.

The site of the resort is less than 2km from several hospitals to provide the necessary support and back-up facilities.

However, the location is still away from heavy traffic, providing peace and calm for elderly residents.

The design of the resort is structured and organised to cater to senior citizens with various needs.

Facilities include a restaurant, wellness spa, physiotherapy room and mini cinema.

The services available for the residents include housekeeping, home medication management, personal assistant services, beauty services, round-the-clock security, excursions and shopping trips as well as an in-house convenience store.

There are also over 200 parking bays provided for residents and visitors.

Construction work is currently 95% finished with some external work such as landscaping as well as interior design yet to be completed.

The resort’s interior designer, Hybrid Designs’ principal Harinat Siriwan, is based in Melbourne, Australia and is currently unable to travel to oversee the progress of the development.

The resort is expected to be in operation a few months after its Certificate of Compliance and Completion is obtained.

    It sounds good. However,there is need for more information especially to the costs involved for individuals or couples. Quite often I look at the Aged Care Centre in Hua Hin and it looks magnificent and ALL detailed information is provided including images for a more comprehensive understanding of what this project is all about.
