The boutique hotel is now increasingly becoming a preferred choice of accommodation among tourists who come to George Town. From quirky little lodges to sophisticated private townhouses, George Town has it all. If you want to treat yourself to a little luxury retreat but prefer it slightly more low key, cosy and with a little charm thrown in, then you might want to check out these latest additions to the already unique collection of boutique hotels in and around George Town.


Eight Rooms at Macalister Mansion promises pure luxury and comfort, and is situated on the upper floors of the self-contained colonial mansion. Each room is individually designed with its own unique art piece, nespresso machine, quality amenities and an adjoining glass bathroom suite. The food and beverage outlets sit on the lower floor of the mansion are branded as distinct rooms found in a mansion such as the Dining Room, Living Room, The Den, The Cellar and The Lawn.


Romantic, Beautiful and Timeless are the three words that are used to describe Seven Terraces, a newly opened boutique hotel of 18 suites. A row of seven Anglo Chinese town houses were restored and converted into this elegant retreat with a fusion of Straits Chinese and modern design. Just a few minutes’ walk away is the ‘Street of Harmony’ on Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, a stretch that houses the Goddess of Mercy Temple, Kapitan Keling Mosque, Sri Mahamariamman Indian temple and the Cathedral of Assumption.


23 Love Lane is a heritage boutique hotel set within a private walled garden and behind a beautifully restored Chinese Gate. The 10-room hotel is situated in the heart of George Town, a UNESCO heritage city. The hotel is divided into four heritage themes: the Anglo Indian Bungalow, the Straits Eclectic Building, the 1920s Jack Roof Annex and the Indian Shop House.


For a more nature friendly retreat, the Fig Tree Hill Resort is perfect especially to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Accessible through a 30 minute drive from George Town, the resort is nestled among the hills of Sungai Ara, overlooking a lush rainforest. It contains five villas of Thai and Balinese design and named after local tropical flowers; the Melor, Cempaka, Jasmine and Kemboja. Each villa houses a living room, dining room, private deck and can take up to five guests. For more information, contact 04-2642929.
