Fresh Produce from our own Farm for Breakfast

 

Fresh Farm

At Roomies, we constantly strive to bring value to your stay. For better half of last year, we have been experimenting and working hard on our farm in Balik Pulau, trying to grow our own food.

In the news, you constantly read about the hazards of eating GMP (Genetically Modified Products) and the chronic health effects of pesticides sprayed on to vegetables to keep bugs away. Chickens and ducks being loaded with antibiotics to prevent disease but end up producing eggs and meat that are overrun with medicine.

We started off with experimenting on Hydroponics systems and also ended up saving chickens from the slaughter houses, (our first time buying chickens in Penang). The chickens looked terrified at first and it took them 1 and a half months of love,attention, fresh water and plenty of food and play time and they finally gave us fresh eggs. The eggs although tiny (F grade), but it tasted so good. It was as if all the wholeness of nutrients were packed into one small punch.
The hydroponic system started giving us a variety of vegetables which we now use for our breakfast.

Our team is now experimenting on many different types of vegetables, tomatoes, fruits and also fish.
We sincerely hope you enjoy your stay with us and have a healthy and enjoyable trip

Upgrading Roomies Penang

We had a brainstorming session, and decided that after a successful year and half of operations, and with all your kind love and support for voting us Number One on all booking engines (2015), we decided we should do more for our beloved guests.

Our philosophy for starting up Roomies was to create value to travelers and holiday makers. Staying committed to this, we gave our entire place a new coat of paint. Next we invested to have wooden flooring’s in the rooms to give it a more 5 star hotel feel and to maintain cleanliness (which is our lifeline).
Then we upgraded our selection of teas in the Studio Suite that lets our beloved guests a selection of Japanese Green Tea, English Breakfast, Assam or Darjeeling.
Sleeping well is our main priority, so we threw in microfibre pillows that are at par with memory pillows in some hotels.
We increase our fabric thread count to 350 to ensure you sleep like a baby.

Our upgraded studio suites, features wooden flooring, increased selection of inhouse complimentary teas, and softer microfiber pillows.
