HPL Hotels & Resorts has appointed John Primmer as General Manager of the Hard Rock Hotel Penang.

A New Zealand national, Primmer has 27 years hospitality experience, having held senior management positions in Malaysia, New Zealand, Australia and United Kingdom for the past 17 years. He was previously the General Manager of James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor Wellington New Zealand.

Scheduled to open in mid-2009, Hard Rock Penang will be the first musically themed resort in Malaysia. Most of the 249 guestrooms are configured as deluxe rooms with sea views; while the lagoon deluxe rooms come with direct pool access off the guest balconies.

Five food and beverage establishments are planned for the resort, which will include a Hard Rock Café, an all-day dining restaurant, pizzeria, poolside bar and lounge.

Facilities include a full service luxury spa, a fully equipped gym, a specialised Lil’ Rock Kids Club, Teens club, Hard Rock merchandise stores, and a 26,000 sq ft free-form swimming pool – one of the largest pools in Penang.

With a variety of indoor and outdoor function facilities including a marquee garden ballroom, pre-function garden area, and three meeting rooms, the resort is aiming to become a popular preference among corporate meeting planners.
