Spices Collection Hospitality, a subsidiary of Spices Collection is a brand of hospitality chain that has been established in Penang Island, Malaysia since 2013. Starting from a humble beginning from a luxury homestay called Spices Hotel at Lumut Lane, the establishment grew to 3 properties today all within Penang.


Why Spices? The diversity of experience exude in the charming properties of Spices Collection both hotel and residence is akin to the relishes from the different assortment of spices. As a main trading Port for South Asia , the spice trade had been closely affiliated to Penang since the early days of Straits Settlement. Merchants and seafarers then took shelter in private dwellings which provide the comfort of homes.


Every property of Spices Collection epitomises luxury home stay within an intimate and private setting that comes with personalized service. All properties offer limited rooms to ensure privacy but generous common spaces for guests indulgence.


Today Spices Collection offers 3 different properties in 3 different locations but all within George Town City Centre which are closed to modern convenience yet tucked away from bustles of the city life.


Spices Hotel, Spices Collection’s maiden property located in the heart of George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built under strict heritage guidelines with interior spaces designed in cog naissance to the historical background of spice trades in Penang as a trading port and of Lumut Lane being homestays to Haj pilgrims plying the ships enroute to Mecca. The conservation effort in restoring the property received a Commendation Award from Malaysian Institute of Architects under the category of Adaptive Reuse in 2014.


Spices Hotel (by the Park) offers a unique interior setting inspired by Art Deco which was the era when the building was constructed. Decorative Graphics , furniture pieces and colours depicting this distinctive style were infused into the interior spaces.
