This hotel is visible from the busy road of Jalan Tanjung Bungah. What you’ll see is an extra large bungalow with its exterior washed in brilliant white paint. Inside, a Peranakan feel is born from the myriad Nyonya antiques and collectibles dotting its 12 rooms. These lovely pieces of history are actually owned by the proprietor himself and part of the experience here is falling asleep in a grand mother of pearl-carved wedding bed. Yes, fancy that!
The rooms here come in three sizes of large, medium and small but even the latter is spacious and intriguing in that it blends old world with modern luxury most effortlessly. Each room has a flat screen television offering numerous satellite TV channels, safe deposit box, hairdryer, air conditioner, fan and bath with solar shower.
Part of the hotel’s amenities are laundry service, WiFi, outdoor pools, complimentary fruits, cookies and non-alcoholic beverages. Location-wise, it’s a stone’s throw from one of the prettiest beaches in Penang, a mere 20-minute ride to the heart of George Town and less than that to Batu Ferringhi. What’s most convenient is, there are a few good restaurants within its vicinity and the Straits Quay marina and mall is less than ten minutes away.
