Your Host & The Team
“When we decided to save the mansion, it needed urgent work to replace rotting floors and joists. The project began in 1992. What followed was a labour of love that spanned three years. During the restoration we were careful to preserve the spirit of the building and the man that lavishly spent so much money to build it, Cheong Fatt Tze. Today, it gives us great pleasure to watch life in it almost as it was back then. Indulge in the magnificence of Penang’s celebrated heritage while making yourself right at home.”

“Set in the old town, this UNESCO Heritage building is an authentic Peranakan delight. Inside its blue façade, the mansion’s 18 guestrooms are filled with 19th century art, curios and antiques that pay tribute to its original owner Cheong Fatt Tze, a poor Chinese man who migrated from China during the Opium War in search of a fortune.”
Kim, the discoverer.
