Truly the original grande dame of Asia’s luxury heritage hotels, since its establishment in 1885, the Eastern & Oriental Hotel has played gracious host to the world’s most celebrated artists and writers, members of royalty and heads of state.

Even with the passage of time, this unique pearl at the heart of George Town continues to shine as a testament to the grand elegance of the British colonial era, the embodiment of both a special time and a special place.

At the start of this decade, the E&O’s iconic Heritage Wing enters a new golden era after meticulous refurbishment that has reinvigorated her repertoire of exclusive hospitality paired with refined culinary experiences. Along the same stretch of prime seafront lawn, the E&O’s Victory Annexe is styled as a modern classic to complement the adjacent historic property.
