SEVEN TERRACES – this newly opened small private hotel of only 18 suites is by the award-winning hoteliers Karl Steinberg and Christopher Ong. (Winners of the 2007 UNESCO Award of Distinction for heritage conservation and regular Conde Naste Hot List nominees).
They have converted a grand row of seven C19th Anglo Chinese terraces, in one of Penang’s finest and most intact heritage streets, into a romantic, beautiful and timeless retreat, perfectly positioned in the very heart of the World Heritage Site, next door to the 1810 Goddess of Mercy Temple and just a few minutes’ walk from all the major icons. It successfully captures and celebrates the spirit of this world heritage town and its unique Peranakan culture.
With a lap pool, Asian fusion dining room, full bar and exquisitely furnished reception and public areas, the hotel offers the perfect spoil and sanctuary but within a skip of the living culture and hawker food for which Penang is so famous.
All suites are air conditioned with LED TV and beautiful open plan bathrooms, four posters carved Chinese beds grace the mezzanine bedrooms and exquisite gilded Peranakan antique furniture and artworks fill the living rooms below.
Straits Chinese meets modernism with an effect that is truly dazzling, unassuming, friendly and welcoming.
