Clove Hall - George Town, Penang


is a private Edwardian Anglo-Malay bungalow located in a quiet residential street. It provides an intimate escape from the heat and the bustle of busy George Town. It is situated approximately a 20 minute walk or a short 5-10 minute taxi ride away from the old town.

Built on the site of a former coconut and clove plantation, the house has been sensitively restored and converted and opened its doors to guests as a Home Stay in Penang from 2009.

It features six individual suites with wooden floors, four poster beds, mosquito nets and ceiling fans. The main hall is furnished with colonial and Peranakan inspired décor and has black and white floor tiles, inlaid glass windows and etched glass light shades.

The grounds have been transformed into a sultry tropical garden, verdant with spice trees, Jasmine, Hibiscus and Macarthur palms. A tranquil green-tiled swimming pool fringed with Frangipani, Bougainvillea and ‘Firecracker’ plants is nestled into it.

Clove Hall evocative of earlier times provides a unique private experience. It offers a personalised service to ensure guests comfort during their stay and provides an ideal and tranquil retreat from which to discover Penang’s amazing food, heritage and cultural diversity.

It is the perfect showcase for a collection of local antiques, artwork and furnishings.

Combining the best of the past with modern conveniences.
