The first Courtyard debuts in the heart of Penang’s UNESCO-listed George Town
The new 199-room Courtyard by Marriott Penang features rooms and suites designed to be smart and spacious, boasting 360° unobstructed views of Georgetown and the Straits of Malacca.
The hotel offers a signature dining venue as well as a bar that serves up a vast selection of drinks.
Penang Kitchen, the hotel’s lively and chic all-day dining restaurant, features a medley of mouthwatering creations inspired by the unique blend of local cultures – Malay, Nyonya, Chinese, Indian – and international cuisines with signature dishes such as Penang Laksa, Chef Ismail’s Chicken Rendang with Ginger Flower, Ox Tail Soup, Lamb Shank Biryani in Claypot, and more
Gin Library slated to open in the last quarter of 2020, is the island’s first and only distillery-themed bar. Reimagined in the Anglo-Indian style, the bar’s design is inspired by the island’s unique heritage and style, featuring an eclectic mix of contemporary furniture with local elements and warm timber tones. True to the British colonial days, Gin Library will be serving a collection of gin and malt whiskey spirits and hand-crafted cocktails.
Courtyard by Marriott Penang also caters to various events’ needs with a pillarless ballroom that can accommodate up to 150 guests.
