Built in the late 19th Century by the renowned tycoon, Cheong Fatt Tze, The Blue Mansion encapsulates motifs of ancient Chinese culture. The Mansion was built with careful attention to the principles of Feng Shui and even today the effect is breathtaking. The open air courtyards in particular exude tranquillity through their serene water features, authentic antique furnishings coupled with tropical greenery and the hushed harmony playing in the background. Its Chinese influences are abundant whilst also featuring a fusion of components from around the world including Gothic louvered windows, encaustic clay floor tiles and cast iron spiral staircases spooling from the melange of mosaics.

                The rustic charm of the rooms oozes cosiness, as you are stooped in more than a century of culture and history. This charms also pours from The Blue Mansion's vivacious location: Georgetown is a charged core pulsing with alluring boutiques, unconventional street art, captivating clanhouses and, most significantly, some of the best street food in the world. The simple act of getting lost in Georgetown's maze like avenues is more than enough of an adventure for even the smuggest traveller. Georgetown itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with colonial era marvels on every street corner, and the Blue Mansion is the epitome of its funky undercurrents; encapsulating all its rich and vibrant intricacies within its strident blue walls.

                 The in house restaurant fuses traditional Chinese cuisine with modern influences to create delectable dishes in every course.  Yet even in this fascinating museum-like hotel the staff still standout as infinitely helpful through their knowledge for the heritage site and warm nature. Whether here for an unforgettably enchanting wedding or your own personal retreat, the chance to stay at The Blue Mansion and become swept off your feet by Georgetown's luminescent lure is unmissable.
