INTIMATE SCALE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL

Macalister Mansion differentiates itself from the local boutique hotel scene by its intimate scale, contemporary design and attention to details – ranging from art curation to branding and interior design, and everything in-between. The Den is an intimate hideout with a wide selection of cigars as well as blended and single-malt whiskeys. 

Each suite is customized with specially commissioned work from an artist or collection of artists, and each has its own unique architectural features. Room 3, for example, boasts a wrought-iron balcony as well as a fabric collage by Malaysian artist Lee Meiling, while Room 8 features exposed truss beams from the building's original construction, as well as art by Malaysia-based UK artist Thomas Powell, commemorating the life of hotel namesake Sir Norman Macalister.
