Bukit Jambul (GPS: 5.34031, 100.28307) is a place on the east-central part of Penang Island. It is bordered by Sungai Dua, Sungai Nibong Kecil, Bayan Baru, Relau and Bukit Gambir. In fact, parts of what is Sungai Nibong Kecil and Sungai Nibong Besar overlap with Bukit Jambul, which itself is within the district of Bayan Lepas.
Much of Bukit Jambul is hilly. The earliest development was at Hotel Equatorial in 1984, but since then, development of Bukit Jambul has spread to include areas which was previously part of Sungai Nibong Kecil. Bukit Jambul Complex, for example, is located within Sungai Nibong Kecil.
For the past thirty years, the one and only mainstream hotel in Bukit Jambul is the 5-star Hotel Equatorial. It is still the biggest hotel in the area, though there are now smaller mainstream hotels in the vicinity, among them Vistana Hotel and Alora Hotel.
The name Bukit Jambul refers to the hillock on which Hotel Equatorial is located. The hill trek which is often regarded as Bukit Jambul is actually located at Bukit Pasir, but has since been referred to as the Bukit Jambul Hiking Trail. Within the Bukit Jambul area is the Penang Golf Club. Apart from Hotel Equatorial, Vistana Hotel is also located at the foot of Bukit Jambul.
Within Bukit Jambul is a wide spectrum of neighbourhoods ranging from the affluent community of Lebuh Bukit Jambul, to the middle class homes in Solok Bukit Jambul, to the working class village of Kampung Seberang Paya, hemmed in between the Seri Nibung Apartments and the Bukit Jambul Golf Course.
