Our favourite rooms
For an opulent yet refined sense of space and privacy, we love outlying Clove Suite (complete with its own grove of clove trees) and the double-storeyed, outdoor-showered Star Anise Suite. In the main house, the Cinnamon Suite commands centre stage, with a view to the pool and the street, and surround-sound shutters.
The lush tropical gardens, chirruping crickets and water cascading from clay urns lend Clove Hall's large pool a rarified rainforest setting, but a cooling G&T is never far away.
Discover your inner colonial rubber baron, with a Panama hat and gold-tipped walking cane for a leisurely stroll around downtown Georgetown. Ear plugs won't go amiss if the local stray dogs act up late at night.
There's a two-night minimum stay. Please note: dogs are not allowed on the property.
Children aged six and above are welcome to bunk down in the Garden Suites: Clove, Star Anise or Ginger. Baby cots (free), day-beds (RM20 a night for kids aged 3–6, including breakfast), or extra beds (RM100 a night for over-7s) can be added to rooms.
