The 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.
“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,”
said Jamie Mead, Regional General Manager, Hilton Malaysia.
The hotel features 316 rooms and suites all equipped
