DoubleTree by Hilton Damai Laut Opens with Warmth and Deal
Hilton Hotels has expanded its presence in the Malaysian hospitality market with the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Damai Laut Resort, a 294-room beachfront resort that overlooks the Straits of Malacca. This is coming on the heels of the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Shah Alam i-City in July.
DoubleTree by Hilton Damai Laut Resort boasts 294 digital key-enabled guest rooms fitted with private balconies with views of the sea or forest. The rooms also include a mini-fridge, high-definition television, and high-speed internet access.
Just minutes from white beaches with views of Pangkor Island, the resort fuses a vibrant balance of relaxation and adventure. Guests seeking exercise or relaxation have various options, including a spa and fitness center.
Home to activities such as snorkeling, diving, banana boating and fishing, the resort’s private beach provides an escape from life’s hustle and bustle. Guests can also look forward to relaxing at the outdoor pool or unwinding at the spa while their little ones have fun at the kids’ club and mini waterpark. With an 18-hole golf course just five minutes away from the resort, golf enthusiasts will be able to enjoy a game or two at leisure.
Located in the west coast of Malaysia’s Perak state, which is well known for scenic beaches and quality seafood, DoubleTree by Hilton Damai Laut Resort is 96 kilometres, or about an hour and 45 minutes’ drive, from Sultan Azlan Shah Airport, Ipoh and 78 kilometres, or approximately an hour’s drive, from Malaysia’s high-speed railway KTM Batu Gajah station in Perak. Served by the newly completed West Coast Expressway, the hotel is also highly accessible from Perak, Banting, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.
Dining options include Makan Kitchen, an all-day dining restaurant known for its diverse menu and local specialties. Guests can also look forward to delectable meat and seafood specialties at steamboat restaurant, Hotpot, or unwind with a cup of freshly brewed coffee or a pot of tea and a selection of light sandwiches at Axis Lounge.
