If you want somewhere closer to George Town, there are also some good Tanjung Bungah beach hotel options. Tanjung Bungah is in between the historic capital, George Town, and Batu Ferringhi. A Tanjung Bungah beach resort is generally better value, although I think it’s better for tourists to pick one of the hotels in Batu Ferringhi beach, Penang where there are many restaurants, shops and a great night hawker centre and market.
