About
Description
An award-winning boutique hotel in the core UNESCO Heritage Zone of George Town, Penang, truly presents its charming history and cultural richness by its Moroccan, Spanish, Indian and local flavoured interior More decor. Spices Boutique Residence Hotel was presented with the “Adaptive Reuse" Award by the Architectural Association (Malaysia) in 2014. Spices is made up of 4 unique pre-war houses and it current houses 8 individually designed guest rooms. Lumut Lane was once the centre of Islamic studies and one of the earliest Malay settlement in George Town that was frequented by traders from the Malay Archipelago, Arab and India. Back then, spices was indeed one of the main trade……hence the name Spices Boutique Residence Hotel. A petite garden with a preserved big tree (>150 years) co-exist with the building and some evergreen trees which form the canopy of the garden. Spices is surrounded with an abundance of heritage buildings and museums, and not to mention world class street arts. Spices Hotel is managed by Spices Collection chain of boutique accommodation with the theme, "LIVE . LOVE . LAUGH. SPICE". #spicescollection #spiceshotel #sweetcili Less
