Macalister Mansion, a sophisticated destination for relaxation, leisure and pleasure is inspired by Sir Norman Macalister, the British Governor of Penang from year 1808 to 1810. It serves as a homage to Penang’s rich colonial past. This exquisitely restored boutique hotel has the makings of a truly memorable stay – resplendent rooms, fabulous facilities as well as a phenomenal range of food and drinks. Restored in 2012, this treasure trove is proud to be the first member of Design Hotels in Malaysia. It reinvents the notion of a modern-day luxury retreat in its rooms, dining, bar, and mosaic lap pool attached to a “swim-up” bar offering personalised service and gourmet food and drinks for an unrivalled experience. The Mansion creatively captures the nostalgia of the past and present hospitality, featuring bespoke artworks and fixtures, topped with impeccable service.
