DoubleTree by Hilton has opened its first resort-style property in Malaysia: DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang, and also marks the 50th DoubleTree by Hilton property in the Asia Pacific region.
Located in the vibrant beach area on Penang’s north coast, overlooking the Indian Ocean, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang is a family-friendly resort with exceptional facilities for all ages.
Overlooking Malaysia’s Miami Beach, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang features a distinctive design concept that blends contemporary style with classical Peranakan motifs. The 316 rooms and suites are all equipped with walk-in rain showers, 40-inch LED TVs and Wi-Fi. Families can opt for two inter-connected rooms, linked by a hallway door to create a private sanctuary, complete with double and twin bedrooms and separate bathrooms.
“Blessed with a rich history, diverse culture and tropical scenery, Penang is a truly enchanting destination. As the first DoubleTree resort in Malaysia, we are delighted to bring the brand’s warmth and genuine hospitality to the country, as epitomized by the welcome cookie we offer to all our guests,” commented Jamie Mead, Regional General Manager, Hilton Malaysia.
Linda Giebing, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang’s General Manager, added: “We have experienced strong demand since the hotel started operating in January, with high occupancy and interest from the events sector. I am confident that all guests will be captivated by our comprehensive range of facilities and renowned standards of hospitality.”
The upscale resort also features a state-of-the-art conference area, including three flexible meeting rooms for events of between 12 and 120 delegates.
The new resort is also part of Hilton Honors, an award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 14 distinct brands.
