Expatriate Lifestyle - - Best Of Malaysia -

What makes Pe­nang one of the pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tions in South­east Asia is the win­ning com­bi­na­tion of his­tory, cul­ture and culi­nary choices. Vis­i­tors have a var­ied se­lec­tion of ac­com­mo­da­tion choices but for a truly mem­o­rable hol­i­day, stay­ing within the UNESCO her­itage zones is a must.

23Lovelane is ide­ally lo­cated in the cen­tre of Ge­orge Town within the her­itage zone and has been grace­fully re­stored with the ex­per­tise of a renowned con­ser­va­tion­ist. At­ten­tion to de­tail and re­spect for the build­ing’s past and nu­ances were at the fore­front dur­ing the restora­tion. The re­sult is a fas­ci­nat­ing amal­ga­ma­tion of ar­chi­tec­tural pe­ri­ods from Straits Eclec­tic to the 1920s and PRE-WWII.

Rooms are decorated ac­cord­ing to unique themes with beau­ti­ful an­tiques and fur­nish­ings. If you’re trav­el­ling as a group, the charm­ing Mun­tri Suites is a three-bed­room pre-war shop­house with a kitchen and liv­ing room. Dine at the ho­tel’s restau­rant, Steak­frites@23, which of­fers the best medium rare steak in town with fries – just like how the French do it. 23 Love Lane, Ge­orge Town, Pe­nang Tel: 04-262 1323
