Rice Miller: A Projection of Penang’s Pioneer Spirit


Overcoming a string of hurdles and multiple delays, The Rice Miller Hotel & Godowns is on the verge of completion and will open its doors by Christmas.

Located right in the heart of the inner city, facing the old jetties that sustained many of Penang’s early communities, lies the site of The Rice Miller Project. Covering over three acres of prime land – believed to be the last sizeable chunk of freehold land in George Town – the ambitious undertaking involves a top-end hotel, two blocks of city residences, a restored 1920s godown and a handful of speciality dining outlets ready to transform the landscape of the heritage city’s waterfront.

Upon completion, it is set to become a symbol of elegance and grandeur, welcoming both visitors and residents to an experience of modern luxury living.
