The first Hard Rock Hotel in Malaysia, the Hard Rock Hotel Penang, has opened for business.

These collections are also showcased through the ‘E-wall’ comprising of 8 screens located at the lobby.

“Hard Rock Hotel Penang will be one of the most sought after vacations in Penang. We define modern and stylish beach resorts with all the unexpected attributes for each of our guest to experience a lifestyle that is over the top. Our differentiator is the amplifier and it rocks,” said John Primmer, General Manager of the Hard Rock Hotel Penang.

The 6-storey hotel offers 250 rooms and suites, mostly with absolute beach frontage. Rooms feature Sleep Like a Rock (branded bedding) and modern in-room amenities such as  DVD/CD players, 32 inches LCD TVs, iPod docking stations, complimentary Wi-Fi and wired connectivity and interactive TVs.

A wide selection of facilities is available including the Rock Spa and Body Rock with state-of-art gym equipment, while families with children and teens can visit the Lil’ Rock Kids Club and Teens Club. For party goers, be styled like a star at the Stylista Coiffure. There are also three Rock Shops located in the hotel, selling Hard Rock Hotel and Hard Rock Cafe merchandise.

 Not to be missed, the 26,000 sq ft free-form swimming pool - one of the largest swimming pools in Penang - even features underwater speakers.

The Hard Rock Hotel Penang has five Food & Beverage outlets, including an Hard Rock Cafe. Other outlets include the Starz Diner, an all-day dining restaurant featuring Asian and International Cuisine and the Pizzeria by the poolside. To enjoy a chill out session, relax sub-emerged in the pool at The Shack (pool bar) or enjoy live band performances at the Lobby Lounge.

The hotel’s grand opening is scheduled for early 2010, although the exact dates are yet to be confirmed.
