Cheong Fatt Tze – The Blue Mansion

George Town, Penang, Malaysia

Cheong Fatt Tze – an illustrious, self-made tycoon nicknamed the ‘Rockefeller of the East’, the iconic Blue Mansion is the result of his incredible eye for detail and determination to use only the best artisans and materials for construction.

The first bricks were laid in the 1890's after detailed consultations with the era’s leading Feng Shui masters. It is through this elegant mansion that Cheong Fatt Tze’s grandiloquence and passion for heritage and luxury is personified inexorably.

The mansion was purchased in 1989 and lovingly restored it to its former glory by 1995 – winning UNESCO’s Most Excellent Project in the Asia Pacific Heritage Award in 2000. In 2001, it was turned into an 18 room boutique hotel, allowing guests to better appreciate its intricate qualities. Lonely Planet also recognized it as ‘One of 10 Greatest Mansions in the World’ in 2011 and it is one of the top ranked hotels in Penang on TripAdvisor today.
