Onyx Hospitality Signs Two New-Build Hotels in Malaysia

Onyx Hospitality has signed agreements with SP Setia Berhad, one of Malaysia’s leading property developers, to open two new Amari hotels in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

Amari Kuala Lumpur will be developed as part of KL Eco City in the capital’s Mid Valley district, whilst Amari Penang will offer direct connectivity to the Setia SPICE Convention Centre.

 Amari Penang is scheduled to open in late 2020, with Amari Kuala Lumpur opening in early 2021.

Situated within the KL Eco City mixed-use landmark development, the 252-room Amari Kuala Lumpur will enjoy direct access to corporate office buildings, residential towers, a retail mall and integrated rail hub with inter-city and inter-state rail connections. Following completion, the 25-acre KL Eco City, master-planned by Los Angeles based architectural and urban design firm The Jerde Partnership, will be one of Malaysia’s first integrated mixed-use green developments.

Amari Penang will offer 453 rooms in a tower connected to Setia SPICE, the world’s first hybrid solar powered convention centre. The complex also incorporates a 10,000-seat events arena, aquatic and sports centre, and a lifestyle and retail village. Located in the Bayan Lepas district of Penang island close to multinational corporate offices, Penang Golf Club, shopping malls, entertainment areas and places of interest, the hotel will appeal to both business and leisure travellers.

We look forward to a long and successful partnership with SP Setia for Amari Kuala Lumpur and Amari Penang, and to having three of our core Onyx brands present across some of the most popular business and leisure travel destinations in Peninsula Malaysia,” Martell added.
