Behind The Design

Macalister Terraces seeks to bring Penang’s vibrant art legacy to life with a one-of-a-kind heritage art hotel concept that provides an immersive art gallery experience in addition to luxurious accommodations.

Each and every room is custom-designed, exuding its own unique charm with authentic mid-century teak furniture pieces accented with Jim Thompson fabrics. Guests can also expect to be greeted by art at every corner at all times. Original artworks by Penang artist Louis Gan, who is famed for his street art and watercolour renditions of Penang, adorn the walls of the hotel – from the atrium to the individual rooms, alongside acclaimed paintings by other celebrated artists that have been lovingly acquired through the years. The hotel will also host special art exhibitions by local artists regularly.

Now you can live and breathe Penang’s colourful landscapes while wallowing in the lap of luxury.
