When was the last time you visited Penang? Penang, also known as The Pearl of the Orient is a vibrant city that is filled with mouth-watering, scrumptious good food, historical buildings and a spectacular night scene. Walk along the lanes, and do keep a look out for creative art pieces sketched on hundred year old buildings - among some of the famous ones are the little boy who is trying to reach out to something on a chair and the two kids on a bicycle.
Located along the historic Macalister Road, Macalister Mansion promises a quirky and sophisticated new lifestyle destination to relax and unwind...Set amidst a lovingly restored colonial mansion that was built in the early 1900s, we invite you to embark with us on a luxuriously new boutique hotel adventure in the heart of Georgetown, Penang,
Macalister Mansion is designed around the idea of an old English mansion. Each space is designed to provide hospitality of an actual home - good food, fine drink, engaging conversation, soothing music, a good night's sleep or simply lounging by the pool. Within Macalister Mansion, each space within its food and beverage outlets together with the hotel is branded as distinct rooms found in a mansion: Dining Room, The Den, Living Room, Bar (Bagan), The Lawn and 8 Rooms. The name Macalister Mansion honours Sir Norman Macalister, one of the first British Governors of Penang (then known as Price of Wales Island) from 1808 - 1810.
This experience gives you and your partner a 4D/3N stay in Room 4 - a 49sqm bedroom and living space with adjoining bathroom suite. This turret room has an alcove with the orgininal wrought-iron spiral staircase which leads to the top. You and your partner can enjoy the view at the top of the turret over a bottle of lovely wine at night and spend a lovely evening just doing nothing but the view. This room also has a privately comissioned wire sculpture by Low Chee Peng, a local Penang artist. This artpiece consists of side profiles of Sir Norman Macalister and his wife, facing each other.
Be prepared to get plenty of sleep as Macalister Mansion will spoil you and envelope you in comfort - be tucked in a king sized bed using Simmons BeautyRest® mattress and 400 threadcount percale bedlinen and 80% goosedown pillows. For those who wants to be spoilt further, the hotel has also a pillow menu for your preference.
Definitely a luxurious gift for that newly wed couple or a special celebration for anniversary or Valentine's Day. Or quite simply, if you are looking for a quite, hassle free getaway not too far away from home.
