The Eastern & Oriental Hotel is the embodiment of both a special time and a special place. For well over a century, this remarkable hotel – known simply as ‘The E&O’ to generations of travellers – has stood as a testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era.
In many ways, it has also come to represent Penang itself, its story inextricably woven into the island’s history, its traditions an indelible part of many a traveller’s treasured memory, its name synonymous with the magical island once known as The Pearl Of the Orient.
For over a century, the E&O Hotel has been at the heart of Penang’s most talked about balls, parties, celebrations and, of course, weddings. The elegance and glamour it will add to your most important occasions are complemented by the hotel’s expert wedding planners and the thoughtful touches they bring to make your special day truly unforgettable.
Layout of the Ballroom and Packages
The Grand Ballroom
The hotel is separated into 2 wings, the original being the heritage wing where the Grand Ballroom is located. The ballroom houses up to 40 round tables. The gallery, designed much like a mezzanine floor, can accommodate another 20 tables in total. Unlike other hotels, the plastering, theatre style room and wooden flooring easily transports one back to the golden era. The other wing is named the Victory Annexe. The Macalister Ballroom is located here and caters up to 30 tables.

Exchanging vows beneath the mighty shades of the 150 year old Java tree that stands in E&O Hotel’s seafront garden lawn with unobstructed views of the straits is a most coveted privilege. To secure this spot there is a rental fee. This fee includes banquet chairs, floral decorations, the use of a PA system, refreshments, canapes, a 3 tier wedding cake and others. The Annexe Garden seats a total of 60 persons.
