The Tamarind, launched in 2015, sits on the northeast corner of Penang Island in the exclusive waterfront township of Seri Tanjung Pinang along the coast of Tanjung Tokong. The fast-developing township is known for Straits Quay, Penang’s first retail marina. Here, you can find various leisure facilities like cafes, restaurants, beauty salons and one-of-a-kind retail outlets.
The two 33-storey towers of executive apartments are set within walking distance to Penang Performing Arts Centre, Tesco, where residents can do their grocery shopping, as well as Straits Green Playground By-The-Sea, an expansive public park with water features and playground equipment for children.
Educational facilities within Seri Tanjung Pinang itself are scarce, but the area is well-connected to other parts of the Penang Island like Tanjung Bungah, Batu Feringghi and George Town, which have an abundance of educational and medical facilities.
The Gurney Drive area, home to famous Penang shopping malls like Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon, can also be reached by car within less than 15 minutes. However, public transportation is not easy to come by in Seri Tanjung Pinang, with the nearest bus stop located in Tanjung Tokong.
The 1104 units of The Tamarind come with three bedrooms and two bathrooms each, and are sized from 1,042 sf onwards. In Type A, the public areas (the living, dining and kitchen) and private areas (bedrooms and bathrooms) are placed in different halves of the unit, while Type B and Type C place the public areas in the centre of the unit, with the private areas on both sides.
In line with its high-end surroundings, the seven-acre freehold land of The Tamarind is designed with lush landscaping and ample waterscapes, immersing residents in a luxurious, resort-like environment. Facilities include a jogging track, barbecue plaza, gym, yoga centre, multipurpose hall, a children’s crèche, al-fresco function area and not just one but three pools.
Established by a prestigious developer with a healthy track record, positioned in a sophisticated, classy neighbourhood, and priced competitively, The Tamarind is a good buy for young professionals and families looking to live and bring their children up in the vibrant seaside lifestyle of Seri Tanjung Pinang.
