TEMPLE TREE ACCOMMODATION
Antique buildings of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin, make up this 8 villa hotel. For Malaysia this is a new concept of hotel where the villas can be rented as one, or as individual hotel rooms. Each building has, over its 70-110 year old history, created its own heart and soul.
This double house is originally from plantation area on Penang Island. The first house was built by Malays in 1900.
In 1920 they sold the house in their own style. As the surrounding area was quite poor, it was known as “Tua Chua” meaning the big house. The owners were the Cheong family who were both rubber and durian farmers.
In your room, you will find sarongs (the traditional Malay pareo). Feel free to use them during your stay and if you want to purchase them they are MYR30.00 each.
