Recently, we were invited to Botanica Mansion’s Soft Launch in Penang and we need to share this incredible experience with all of you.
Botanica Mansion is under Botanica CT, a new development area in Balik Pulau. The drive there is just beautiful, so if the journey does take a while, you can still enjoy the amazing view. So, before reaching Botanica Mansion you will definitely pass by the new development area. Prince of Wales International School is also in that area itself.
When we arrived at Botanica Mansion, the first thing we saw was, of course, the beautiful pool and gym, that’s only for the members and also guests of the mansion. It was absolutely beautiful! The moment we stepped into the place, it’s just so elegant. They had beautiful set ups everywhere; from the garden to the rooms. Now, let us allow the pictures to speak for themselves.
As you can see, they have a beautiful Western dining table and also the Chinese dining table. Oh! We also love how unique and thoughtful they are to have a Chinese tea ceremony setting upstairs. This place is absolutely the perfect venue for those of you who want a more intimate Tea Ceremony in Penang. There’s an elegant mini hall that’s perfect for social events as you walk out, there’s an open bar area. They also dedicated a room where you can see the process of the refurbishment of the colonial building and its’ history.
Okay, can we just sit down and appreciate how beautiful their garden is? Just look at that view. It’s simply elegant to its every touch. All the guests at the soft launch were left impressed with that elegant flower backdrop. We bet you want the backdrop too, don’t you? Haha!
A little more on the history of Botanica Mansion, shall we? It was a former English rubber plantation area during the old times. Fun fact: The man behind this entire development, Dato Dr Kenny Ong, was not aware of the antique colonial building in the area. One day, they came across it and there it was – all abandoned. Initially, he wanted a clubhouse which would restrict it to a member-only place but decided against it as he wanted to share this exquisite building with the public as well! His wife, Datin Saisunee Ong, is the main lady behind the whole refurbishment of the building. Admirable, huh? Oh, if you ever want to visit Botanica Mansion, do dine at their fabulous restaurant. Datin Saisunee Ong highly recommends the scones for a high tea session! Well, when we try ’em, we will let you know!
It was also a great pleasure to meet Dato Kenny Ong and his family! Thank you, Botanica Mansion for inviting us. Another wonderful evening to cherish dearly. If you have further inquiries, feel free to call us at +6 016 720 0347 or just request for a free quotation to book Botanica Mansion here.
