Malaysia’s First DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Opens in Penang

DoubleTree by Hilton, one of Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) 14 market-leading brands, has celebrated the opening of its first resort-style property in Malaysia: DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang.

This upscale resort is just 45 minutes’ drive from Penang International Airport and 20 minutes from Georgetown, the island’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed capital, which is accessible via a complimentary shuttle bus service from the hotel.

DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang is a family-friendly resort with exceptional facilities for all ages - including access to Malaysia’s first teddy bear-themed museum, TeddyVille.

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.” Overlooking Miami Beach and the turquoise seas beyond, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang features a distinctive design concept that blends contemporary style with classical Peranakan motifs.

DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang becomes the first DoubleTree Resort in Malaysia, and joins three other DoubleTree hotel properties in the country: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur, DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru. It also becomes the 50th DoubleTree by Hilton property in the Asia Pacific region.
