Have you ever walked into a hotel and thought “Gosh, this much beauty has to be a sin?” Well, in case you haven’t guessed where I’m going with this, Seven Terraces in George Town, Penang is indeed one of those hotels. Here are seven sins the boutique getaway by GTHH has committed in order to lure you in through its doors.
1. 19th Century Façade
A repurposed heritage building, Seven Terraces comprises a connecting row of Anglo-Chinese terrace houses located just behind the Goddess of Mercy Temple.
2. Decadent Rooms
No two rooms are similar on the property, a testament to the hotel’s commitment to the boutique concept. While some rooms come with an extra open-air shower in the balcony, some are duplex with separate TV rooms upstairs.
3. Lobby + Museum
Feel like checking into a museum at the reception, thanks to the wide variety of Peranakan artefacts showcased at the lobby area, from porcelain vases to antique mother-of-pearl furniture.
4. It’s all in the Details
Hidden gems appear at every turn in the hotel, all you need to do is just look for them. From architectural wonders to delicate statuettes, Seven Terraces is a portal into the Peranakan world.
5. The Revolution of Giraffes
Commissioned by George Town Heritage + Hotels (GTHH) in conjunction with GTF2016, ‘The Revolution of Giraffes’ by Matthieu Robert-Ortis is an inspiring work of art that has found its home in the Seven Terraces’ courtyard.
6. Picturesque Pool
Surrounded by lush, green plants, the blue serene rectangle of a pool invites you take a dip in its cool waters from the first glance.
7. Beautiful Breakfast
Exquisite food on elegant Peranakan-motif plates? Yes please!
