Seven Terraces, Penang, Malaysia
This newly opened small private hotel of only 18 suites is by the award-winning hoteliers Karl Steinberg and Christopher Ong. A grand row of seven 19th century Anglo Chinese terraces, have been converted in one of Penangs finest and most intact heritage streets, into a romantic, beautiful and timeless retreat, perfectly positioned in the very heart of the World Heritage Site, just a few minutes walk from all the major icons. It successfully captures and celebrates the spirit of this world heritage town and its unique Peranakan culture.
With a generous lap pool, Asian fusion dining room, full bar and exquisitely furnished reception and public areas, the hotel offers the perfect sanctuary but within a short hop from the living culture and hawker food for which Penang is so famous.
All suites are air conditioned with LED TV's and beautiful open plan bathrooms. Four poster carved Chinese beds grace the mezzanine bedrooms and exquisite gilded Peranakan antique furniture and artwork's fill the living rooms below.
The suites surround an elegant and very long, Chinese granite courtyard with beds of frangipani set between tall wooden columns and tessellated walkways. Some suites have their own outdoor decks with views of the Georgian Church.
The Grand Apartment has four bedrooms and it's own garden terrace and sits beyond a private entrance. It is furnished with a collection of lacquered, chinoiserie cabinets, opium beds, desks and altar tables and features other exquisite 19th century Baba Nonya furniture and collectible's.
Straits Chinese meets modernism with an effect that is truly dazzling, unassuming, friendly and welcoming
