17 The Blue Mansion Hotel- Penang

January 22, 2024

In the heart of George Town in Penang, Malaysia, stands an architectural gem that has withstood the test of time and transformed into a SUPER COOL hotel: The Blue Mansion. Also known as “Cheong Fatt Tze – The Blue Mansion,” this stunning structure is a tribute to opulence and history😍.

Rich and Colorful History

The Blue Mansion, built in the 19th century, was the home of the legendary Cheong Fatt Tze, a successful Chinese merchant and investor who played a significant role in the region’s economic development at its peak. The mansion is an outstanding example of eclectic Chinese period architecture, with its characteristic indigo blue colour adorning the exterior walls. The blue, a symbol of wealth and prosperity in Chinese culture, gives the mansion its name.

The Blue Mansion has been meticulously restored to preserve its original splendour and has been converted into a boutique hotel. Here, guests can immerse themselves in the rich history of Penang while enjoying modern amenities.

The hotel’s rooms and suites are very cool and spacious, each uniquely decorated to offer a different experience. Antique furniture, crystal chandeliers, and nice fabrics create a luxurious atmosphere that evokes Penang’s golden era.

Culinary Delights

In addition to accommodation, The Blue Mansion is known for its excellent culinary offerings. The restaurant Indigo at The Blue Mansion, combining Chinese and Malay influences, provides an exceptional gastronomic experience. Fresh ingredients and traditional recipes come together to create delicious dishes reflecting Penang’s culinary diversity.


The hotel’s location in George Town is strategic for exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site. We could stroll through the cobblestone streets and discover the unique architecture, local markets, and ancient temples that make George Town a charming destination.

The Blue Mansion in Penang is much more than a hotel. It’s a journey back in time to Penang’s colonial era, where splendour and history intertwine uniquely.
