WHERE TO STAY

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Harper's Bazaar Art -

With an ex­plo­sion of bou­tique ho­tels and guest­houses over the years in Ge­orge Town, Pe­nang, these top the list. 23 LOVE LANE Just like liv­ing in your Ny­onya grand­mother’s home—your grand­mother with fab­u­lous taste in art, of course—with the friendli­est front desk staff in Ge­orge Town and the best af­ter­noon tea, served daily. SEVEN TER­RACES Lac­quered wood and gen­uine an­tiques from award-win­ning hote­lier Chris Ong’s pri­vate col­lec­tion are seen here. The ar­chi­tec­tural ge­nius who knocked through seven shop­houses and cre­ated that mag­nif­i­cent court­yard pro­vides a cool, ele­gant respite from the bus­tle on its doorsteps. JAWI PER­ANAKAN MAN­SION Newly opened and the lat­est in Chris Ong’s sta­ble of ho­tels, a tin­kling foun­tain greets you in the court­yard. As you slink fur­ther into in­tri­cate lat­tice­work and silken In­dian fin­ery, this de­light­ful ho­tel weaves op­u­lence and in­ti­macy to­gether. CLOVE HALL RES­I­DENCE Si­t­u­ated slightly be­yond the her­itage zone, the pri­vate, black-and-white colo­nial house is set within del­i­cate green gar­dens. This is the best place if you’re bring­ing kids. Even bet­ter, book up the whole ho­tel and take up all six suites with fam­ily and friends. MACALISTER MAN­SION Al­though Macalister is quirk­ily con­tem­po­rary within its grandiose colo­nial walls, glass-walled bath­rooms, an im­pres­sive li­brary, and a fine din­ing restau­rant await you.
