We stayed in the largest room category, the Han Suites, which is extra spacious and ideal for our family of four. All their rooms carry names with significance to Cheong Fatt Tze; for instance, our suite was called Mandarin, in honour of Cheong Fatt Tze who was recognised as the last Mandarin of the Highest Order by Empress Dowager. The grand chambers is appointed with a comfortable king-sized bed, as well as a separate sitting room with a day bed (which converts into a bed for the kids at night) and a dining table. We loved the modern bathroom, equipped with a shower and a gorgeous clawfoot bathtub. You will also find various other contemporary comforts and amenities such as a coffee machine, complimentary mini-bar, air-conditioning and complimentary WiFi for your comfort. The traditional sarong provided is a nice touch, where guests are invited to relax like a local. Every evening, local kuih is delivered to your room as part of their turndown service.

For mains, I had the Chargrilled Black Angus tenderloin (RM65 supplement), which comes with potato gratin, seasonal vegetables and green peppercorn sauce. Perfectly grilled and tender.
Excellent meal in a restaurant inspired by Cheong Fatt Tze himself, in a setting of "West meets East" where the design compliments the fine dining created and presented by Chef Weng!
If you prefer a Western delight, Atlantic Salmon would makes a great choice. The piece of protein is cooked to achieve an even crispy skin, while the flesh is soft. Eat it along with the granny smith apple to give a sweet and crisp texture. It is served along with cod croquette with lemon mayo and wasabi- tobiko.
