Come this last quarter of 2014, Penang is set to welcome another brand new addition to her already brimming list of hotels with the introduction of G Hotel Kelawai.

The 25th of April 2014 marked an important milestone for G Hotel Kelawai, with the Topping Off Ceremony taking place on the rooftop of the building still undergoing construction.
(Topping off ceremony was traditionally practiced by the Scandinavians and the builders as a form of practice to mark the placement of a last beam (or equivalent) during the establishment of the building, as defined by Wikipedia).
The Topping Off Ceremony of G Hotel Kelawai was officiated by the Guest of Honor, Penang Chief Minister, YAB Lim Guan Eng, in the presence of the Minister of Tourism and Cultural Development, YB Danny Law, the Directors of G Hotel, Mr Phuah Choon Meng and Mr Phuah Ken Lin, the General Manager of G Hotel, Mr Michael Harraty, Director of Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board, Mr Harun Pilus, Penang Global Tourism, Mr Jason Sim among other dignitaries and the media.
Taking place on the rooftop set to house an infinity pool and a stylish rooftop bar, which offers a spectacular view of Penang island, the event gracefully marked the presence of G Hotel Kelawai which is set to take on the success of its predecessor, G Hotel; if not better with the introduction of its very own distinctive features to boast with its 5-star hotel facilities.
