The Space

On the 34th and 35th Floors of this Luxury Condominium in Penang, the Century Bay Group have carved out 6 studio units. All feature fully-equipped kitchens complete with crockery and cutlery. Laundry? Fret not. Each kitchen features, tucked away under a section of the countertop, a washing machine. We give you fabulous beds fitted with sumptuous 400 threadcount sheets. Just what you need for a great night's sleep. And those who wish to surf the net will be pleased to know that Wireless Internet is provided at-no-charge. The less computer-addicted among us, may catch a movie or several movies if they were so inclined, on our LCD Screens with Satellite TV.

Parking is a breeze with shaded carparks and shaded walkway access into the building.

And paramount, are safety and security. To complement the 24-hour security detail, anyone arriving will require specially encoded Access Card is required to enter the grounds of the complex. Afterwhich, a separate Access Card is then required to gain access into the building's lift lobby - under CCTV scrutiny.

With panoramic views of the city and located in a very central part town, a trip the airport, heritage enclave of George Town or the funicular train ride up Penang Hill is just 10-15 minutes away. Some of our guests who are early risers tell us of how they curl up on the sofa and watch mesmerised by the sight of watching over the rim of their coffee mugs, a city awaken to a new day.

Come stay with us and discover a new perspective of Studio Living.

  • Thank you for great stay. We enjoyed it.

    March 2014
  • The Sky Studios at Central Park are great. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Guests can really make themselves feel at home here. In fact, I found myself wishing my own home were more like the Sky Studios!

    Guests should note that the Sky Studios are self-catering apartments. Other than check-in and check-out, Century Bay leaves you to your privacy. No one will come to make your bed or change your toilet paper. (If you run out, just buy some more or use the spray hose.) There is a washing machine in the kitchen, and a balcony with an extendable clothing rack for drying clothes. We found that very helpful.

    There are a few low points to the Sky Studios, though. Because the Sky Studios are located in a high-rise apartment complex away from the primary Century Bay Apartment complex, there is no Century Bay office at Central Park. As other reviewers have said, you will have to check-in at a separate location. However, Century Bay provided transportation from their office to the Sky Studios, so that was nice.

    Lastly, the location is kind of difficult for many taxi drivers to understand. Even though I wrote down the address to show the taxi drivers, sometimes they didn't know where to go. I recommend printing out a map of the area to show them the major roads that Central Park is near. If you want to take a bus, there is a bus stop just a few minutes from the security gate for Central Park.

  • First of all: Jennifer and the team from CB-Sky-Studios and CB Apartments are unbelievably friendly and the service is great.
    All the questions and requirements were answered resp. handled immediately.
    We had the opportunity to see the different studios as we were a little confused with the online photos. The apartments have a modern furniture and met our (European) taste (if there's only one : )- especially the apartments in Lingtam Pantai Jerejak show many nice details and a nice "public" area. Gym and swimming pool are nice and well maintained, one feels good - especially as people are very friendly.
    CB Sky Studios is a very good starting point to discover the island, the apartments great for a long term stay, especially when working in the South of the island - as traffic is a real challenge.

    So, thanks a lot to the CB-Team! We had a great time here!

  • very nice and big Studio with a wonderful few over the City and into the hills. the rooms were very clean and the area was very safety. we felt very comfortable. there was only one downside. you have to pick up the key in another area which is 15 min away from the Studio. it was annoying because of the costs of the taxi and the wasted time. all in all we had a very great time.

  • We found the apartment very comfortable. The view was breathtaking and the staff at Century Bay were extremely helpful. Special thanks to Maisie, Shu, Joseph and Bhai. We used Yoga Taxis to travel around . Yoga was on time and reasonable. His telephone. Number is (phone number hidden). The bus stop is close by but buses were very crowded and taxi fares reasonable so we preferred to use taxis. Negotiate your fare before getting in as meters are not always used. The beach at Batu Ferringhi is about 45 minutes away by taxi. There is a bus which goes there too. Good shopping at Gurney Plaza and Queensbay Mall. Fruit and vegetables are sold at Batu Lanchang Market next to the complex. Chicken, fish and pork is also sold, but we didn't buy any. Great place for a holiday! Will definitely go back.

  • Staff was very polite. Great view of the hills and amazing facilities. The room was spacious.
    You have to check-in at another location about 5 kms away and collect keys from there.

  • To collect the keys there is to have to go first CerturyBay apartments which are about 20 minutes drive from “Studio in the Sky”. At first they tried that I was to Study on my own. I had to take me angry about it. The photos posted do not fit very close to reality; most of them do not match the study provided. In the surrounding area only are a few local restaurants. The air conditioning in the bedroom make an unbearable noise caused by a condensate pump, insupportable. The screen glass is very dirty shower. In the kitchen had roaches. The single beds were very uncomfortable and sank. No one came to clean, change towels, replenish toilet paper or empty the bins during our stay. VERY DISAPPOINTING.

  • Notre séjour au studio de Century Bay, au 35e étage, était exactement ce que nous cherchions. Une vue magnifique, accès facile à la piscine et aux installations sportives.
    Il manque d'équipements et de couverts pour ceux qui veulent cuisiner, mais la salle de bain et la cuisine sont bien aménagées. Le marché est juste à côté et le super marché à peine à 2 km.
    C'est un bon rapport qualité/prix pour ceux qui veulent un peu plus qu'une chambre d'hôtel: on s'y est senti comme à la maison.

  • I had a great experience at this apartment in Penang. The place is big, clean, and fully furnished. I have no complaints about my stay here. Jocelyn at Century Bay was particularly helpful with everything during my stay. She was always there to support any request I had. Furthermore, the local area is quiet and peaceful and the park attached to the condo complex is nice as well. I recommend this place to anyone!
