This October, an exciting new urban retreat is set to open its doors amongst Penang’s Clan Jetty Heritage homes and between the banking district of Beach Street and the Weld Quay area.
The 162-roomed Prestige Penang set in George Town, part of the Design Hotels portfolio, is a contemporary tribute to Victorian design, featuring heritage floor patterns, lattices and a verdant garden conservatory feel.
Playful touches across the hotel reference the world of magic, from beds that seem to levitate through to hidden doors leading on to concealed rooms. Inside the rooms, king-size or twin beds are on offer, along with living spaces in the suites.
During the day, guests can venture up on to the rooftop to take a dip in the infinity pool and admire the impressive views of the historic quayside. Meanwhile, when dusk falls, the achingly hip rooftop becomes a popular spot for unwinding and making the most of cocktail hour.
Guests wanting to head out for a bite to eat will be pleased with the property’s location, which is perfect for ambling along Church Street or heading into the centre of George Town.
