Macalister Mansion Hotel – Malaysia

On October 27, 2013

The Macalister Mansion in Georgetown, Penang in Malaysia, member of Design Hotels, is a fine example of a contemporary and fresh boutique hotel where modern design meets British tradition in which further Chinese, Indian and native Malaysian influences provide for an idiosyncratic and urbane lifestyle destination that nods both to Penang’s colonial past and to its flamboyant present.

Macalister Mansion is designed around the idea of an old English mansion. Each space is designed to provide hospitaliy of an actual home – good food, fine drink, engaging conversation, soothing music, a good night’s sleep or simply lounging by the pool.

The name Macalister Mansion honours Sir Norman Macalister, one of the first British Governors of Penang (then known as Prince of Wales Island) from 1808 – 1810. Sir Norman Macalister also gave his name to Macalister Road, where the boutique hotel is situated.
