Chic relaxation and modern comfort in the verdant Malaysian hills
It all begins at the foot of the densely forested hill. In years gone by, the only route to the summit would be a sure-footed pony or palanquin, but today, the funicular will whisk you to the top in a matter of minutes. Alternatively, you can opt for a comfortable 4X4 ride through the lush green rainforest. As you arrive at Eythrope, marvel at the views towards Kedah Peak and the Titiwangsa Mountains. The 1920s villa is constructed in the typical colonial style – white walls, high ceilings, wooden floors and a modern wraparound terrace that provides a front row seat to the sunrise over George Town, or a perfect setting for some star-gazing. Inside, a boutique collection of individually designed rooms and suites deliver a sense of contemporary calm, with neutral hues interspaced with terrariums and bonsai plants.

After settling in, the choice is yours. Sink deeper into relaxation, with yoga, a reflexology session, or a book. Or keep an eye out for the dusky leaf monkeys that keep Eythrope company. Explore local culture with a cookery class or visit to the nearby Penang Hill Gallery. Or venture out into the rainforest of The Habitat nature park on a guided walk. Whatever you choose, you’ll work up an appetite that Eythrope’s chefs will be happy to satisfy.
Enjoy your stay!
