It all begins with the appreciation for delicate and tasteful things.
At Hotel Penaga George Town Penang, life is arts.
The architecture itself is true wisdom of the past. Formerly a three rows of double storey terraced pre-war houses and shop houses built in the 20s of last century, it had its tests of time and historic incidents. Restoration and renovation were carefully done on these precious to bring out the best in them.
After all, Hotel Penaga cherishes heritage as UNESCO does.
Not only so, we are, proud to be the first among the very little, the gold medal winner of Green Building Index – that means we take environmental issue as our own responsibility very seriously.
And so we found factories in Indonesia that still make traditional encaustic cement tiles with presses from the 1930s for the ground floor, and we retrieved second hand timber recovered from demolished colonial buildings just to retain the original flooring upstairs.
Some may question, “Old timber? Are they safe?”
Of course! We don’t compromise quality for taste. Instead, our utmost priority is your safety and comfort while enjoying the sentimental moments surrounded by the refined environment.
And because we want to make sure you will value your time spent at Hotel Penaga, even after you have returned home, thus we work our best to the every little smile on your face whenever you are with us.
From the moment you set your foot on our front corridor covered in classical tiles, you have taken a step into the enchantment of colonial age.
Try imagining yourself reliving the nobility of English gentleman, or walking on the path that you grandfathers have taken.
We welcome you to a distinctive luxurious stay and sincerely hoping you enjoy the uniqueness of George Town World Heritage Site.
Welcome to George Town.
Welcome to Penang, in style.
