About Us

The Prestige is an independent hospitality label that best portrays the natural urban beauty of Penang’s historic core. A magical modern-day interpretation of Victorian design, the newly built hotel is brought whimsically to life with an assembly of a magical quasi-colonial interior, the first of its kind in Penang and is part of the prestigious Design Hotels™ portfolio.

The hotel site was historically a century-old godown used during the maritime trading era in the late 1900s. Set amongst the beautiful and intricate 19th century English colonial buildings found in this UNESCO World Heritage site, the 162-room locally rooted boutique brings to mind a tropical Victorian Eden through the hotel’s lush garden-conservatory feel. Inspired by the heritage-banking district of old town Penang and Church Street, as well as the City’s rich tropical geography and botany, the Prestige is a modern premium hotel designed for the discerning business and leisure traveler who seek a memorable hotel experience away from the predictable.



The Prestige Hotel is inspired by the brilliant art of illusion from the 2006 movie ‘The Prestige’ set in the 19th century Victorian Age. The hotel draws upon its cultural relevance to the same era of its colonial surroundings within Church Street and presents a playful homage to magic.


The hotel features sophisticated elements of visual trickery from an enchanting reception desk that seem to magically balance on chrome orbs; interior fittings transposed with magicians’ props like Houdini’s escape box; the magical lattice of shadows animating the journey through our corridors; to subtle visual trickery of levitated beds and hidden doors that reveal concealed rooms. Explore further to find modern and historic elements that are distinctively ‘Penang’ finely etched into interior bronze wall fittings.

Boasting the ultimate spot for relaxation and wellness, guests will find an infinity pool with clear views of the quayside, gazebos by the pool and an ultra-chic custom designed gym. Visit the Borden & Angier rooftop pavilion and terrace - an intimate setting perfect for inspirational meetings, product launches and private events for up to 80 guests. Savor local delicacies and international cuisine at the Glasshouse restaurant housed within the vibrant enclave of many dining and retail outlets located on the ground floor of the hotel’s Victorian architectural envelope.

The Prestige Hotel aims to deliver a hospitality experience that is intuitive and enthusiastic. We showcase sophisticated architectural and design philosophies that are highly functional to deliver the ultimate comfort and technology for a distinctive hotel stay experience. Within walking distance to Penang’s must-see sites and popular gourmet finds, The Prestige is the perfect launching point for exploring Church Street and the heart of George Town.
