Hotel Equatorial Penang (GPS: 5.337897, 100.284578) is a 5-star hotel in Bukit Jambul, Penang. With 662 rooms, it is the largest hotel in Penang in terms of total number of guest rooms.

Hotel Equatorial Penang is the first major hotel to be built on the southern part of Penang Island. Although it is now over twenty years old, the hotel has gracefully stood the test of time. Built primarily to serve the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone, it is a business hotel on a hill. From Bukit Jambul, guests enjoy a panoramic view of Bayan Baru and Bayan Lepas below.

In keeping with its position as the main hotel on the southern part of Penang Island, Hotel Equatorial Penang has a wide range of facilities. This includes a large swimming pool with bubble jet, a gymnasium, with male and female sauna and steamroom. There are four main dining outlets at the hotel, namely The View, Golden Phoenix, Kampachi and nada lama (formerly known as Coffee Garden). Located at poolside is nadaba.
