The Prestige Hotel is a luxury homegrown hospitality label located in the heart of the Georgetown UNESCO world heritage site. Inspired by its colonial Victorian heritage, it welcomes the urbane traveller to a magical contemporized colonial scene, with 162 rooms, an all day dining outlet, an arcade with a mix of retail outlets, event spaces and a rooftop infinity pool.
25 minutes away from Penang International Airport, within walking distance to Penang’s cultural hotspots and popular gourmet finds, together with Prestige’ bespoke hospitality, The Prestige Hotel brings local inspiration to life for intrepid world travellers seeking to experience local charm at its best. It is the perfect designer living space for the busy business executive and the contemporary world traveller of today.
The hotel site was historically a century-old godown used during the maritime trading era in the late 1900s. Set amongst the beautiful and intricate 19th century English colonial buildings found in this UNESCO World Heritage site, the 162-room locally rooted boutique brings to mind a tropical Victorian Eden through the hotel’s lush garden-conservatory feel. Inspired by the heritage-banking district of old town Penang and Church Street, as well as the City’s rich tropical geography and botany, the Prestige is a modern luxury hotel designed for the discerning business and leisure traveller who seek a memorable hotel experience away from the predictable.
Boasting the ultimate spot for relaxation and wellness, guests will find an infinity pool with clear views of the quayside, gazebos by the pool and an ultra-chic custom designed gym. Visit the Borden & Angier rooftop pavilion and terrace – an intimate setting perfect for inspirational meetings, product launches and private events for up to 80 guests. Savor local delicacies and international cuisine at the Glasshouse restaurant housed within the vibrant enclave of many dining and retail outlets located on the ground floor of the hotel’s Victorian architectural envelope.
The Prestige Hotel is set for official opening in Oct 2019.
