Brimming in its former glory, you’ll notice the interior of the place is still well-maintained and overflowing with the previous stories that resided in this place. The heart of the hotel is a restored 1920s Straits Settlement mansion complete with its original porcelain tile flooring and teakwood fittings.

A night stay here can only result in the most relaxing night of your entire trip because all rooms are furnished with the discerning traveller in mind. Moreover, if you’re someone that will shriek when you hear the word ‘spa’, there’s nowhere else you’d rather be than over at their Spa Village. It’s the world’s only spa to base its therapies on the healing heritage of the Baba-Nyonya or Peranakan culture – a unique combination of Chinese and Malay influences.
