Photo of Macalister Mansion

“A modern residence in the heart of old Georgetown. Stunningly contemporary suites, some in the turrets, with all the mod cons, pale furnishings, and lots of space. Excellent innovative cuisine, billiards room, and mosaic tiled swimming pool. A grown up spot for the design conscious. ”

Hotel Review

The name certainly doesn't disappoint but the interiors definitely surprise. The idea of a mansion is completely turned on its head with this hotel's modernist twist on grandeur. Each lightly coloured suite, only 8 of them too, creates a subtle geometric space for the visitor to relax in. The dining room, which serves innovative Malay cuisine, is stunning with its hints of greenery and snowy walls. The whole mansion is decked out in contemporary art, and many paintings provide playful humour. A really interesting hotel with fine attention to detail. One for art lovers, the design conscious and grown ups in general!
