Hotel Penaga Review

A multimillion ringgit refurbishment converted 15 pre-war shop houses into this 45-room boutique hotel. Malaysian architect Hijjas Kasturi and his wife Angela worked together to retain the 1940s features while introducing contemporary aesthetics and amenities. The three choices for accommodation—each featuring a Jacuzzi spa, natural-history prints that relate to Penang, and pieces of antique furniture—include: Clark Terraces, family-friendly two-floor houses with two bedrooms and private gardens; Transfer Suites, which sit above the spa with a sitting room and large bedroom; and Hutton Rooms, with one bedroom and the most affordable rates. Relax in the hotel's spa, which focuses on ancient remedies and treatments inspired by the Malay Peninsula, incorporating several botanical ingredients.
