Picture of Sarah Anne Lee
Updated: 17 July 2017
Malaysia is full of opportunities to explore its beautiful landscapes, lively cities and tropical rain forests. Here are some of the best boutique hotels around the country for a pleasant place to turn in for the night after a fun full day of adventuring.

Heeren Boutique Hotel

Boutique Hotel, Budget Hotel, Bed and Breakfast
Save to wishlist

Located in the heritage town of Melaka, the Heeren Boutique Hotel is far enough away from the tourist-heavy locations but is still within comfortable walking distance of the main attractions. Housed in a revamped heritage building on one of the most affluent roads, this hotel offers traditional Peranakan decorative flair and modern essentials. The rates are on the higher end, but this place has a reputation as one of the best lodging houses in Melaka.

Part of Penang‘s UNESCO World Heritage area, and one of the island’s most well-known landmarks, The Blue Mansion (officially the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion) has embarked on a mission to expose visitors to the beauty of Chinese and Peranakan heritage. The striking building is both a museum and a boutique hotel. Treat yourself to historical luxury by staying in one of the remodeled 19th century rooms. The Blue Mansion has been behind efforts to preserve remnants of Old Malaya, safeguarding them from the damaging effects of modern construction projects. The building is surrounded by a neighborhood as old as itself, so immerse yourself in traditional local life.

One for the budget travelers, the Hotel Maison Boutique in Kuala Lumpur is a zany place to stay. Featuring fun themed rooms based on global pop culture and icons, the hotel is located in a little corner off Bukit Bintang and Berjaya Times Square. It’s far enough away from the action to provide a peaceful stay, and is close enough to the train station and more affluent parts of Kuala Lumpur that they can be reached on foot. The unmissable red modernist exterior reflects the funky taste withing, and helpful staff make staying here unforgettable. Note that the area might get a little shady at night.

Jawi Peranakan Mansion

This restored Jawi Peranakan mansion in Penang reflects a more unusual strain of Peranakan culture: South Asian influences are stronger here than East Asian ones. The property’s Mughal Anglo origin makes for an attractive building, and the luxury service is among the city’s finest. The hotel can be found on what locals call the Millionaire’s Road, part of Penang’s heritage area.

Take me back to this p a r a d i s e 🌴 #summ2014 💭

A post shared by ANNE VAN TONGEREN (@annevantongeren) on

Bringing boutique luxury to hideaway beach side resorts, the Japamala Resorts provide affordable 5-star hospitality and the best island getaway one can dream of. A part of the Samadhi Retreats group, who are also providing the excellent Villa Samadhi in Kuala Lumpur, the resort stays in line with the company’s eco-friendly mission to operate with natural materials unobtrusive to the nature that surrounds it. Relax in isolated tranquility away from practically everything modern and revel in the resort’s rustic atmosphere. Advisable to prepare for is the lack of phones in the rooms – visitors will have to take a little walk to the main lobby area for inquires and requests, and bring along some insect repellent to deal with the sand insects that gather during dawn and twilight.
