    Hotel Penaga is the prototypical Penang boutique heritage hotel - a gorgeously-preserved collection of 15 pre-war terraces enhanced by antique Peranakan and Balinese furnishings and fixtures and turned into a hotel. However, this is one property which does things just a little bit differently - one of its unique features being an onsite program in which the hotel hosts a visiting artist (from anywhere in the world) for a few months. Given a stipend and free lodging, these artists are allowed to practice their craft and showcase their pieces in the hotels onsite artists studio: in exchange, at the end of their tenure at Hotel Penaga, they present a piece of their work to the hotel for display. Though it is a small hotel with limited space, there is a surprising array of onsite facilities including a mini library, a business centre with computers, a 1.3m-deep saltwater lap pool, an outdoor Jacuzzi, spa offering Malay treatments and a restaurant and lounge.
