The island state’s first Hilton property offers a fresh, unique and intriguing addition to the holiday scene for travelers visiting Penang. Set to be an ideal resort for millennial families traveling with young kids and teens, the 316-room family-focused, full-service resort offers the option to connect up to two (2) rooms with the privacy of shared hallways, a Kid’s Club and direct access to Malaysia’s first teddy bear-themed museum, TeddyVille Museum.
The resort located approximately 15 kilometers from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town – is renowned for its old-world charm due to the rich historical architecture that dates back to the British colonial days of the 18th century, and cultural townscapes – ensuring accessibility to culture, retail therapy and local delicacies. The resort provides complimentary shuttle service to George Town as well as other popular localities, including Gurney Drive and Batu Ferringhi.
Aside from the local Peranakan delights and international favorites meticulously crafted by the chefs at Makan Kitchen, guests may also choose to relax with their favorite tipple and light snacks at the Axis Lounge, or satiate their appetites at the laid-back, café-styled The Food Store which offers a selection of ‘grab-and-go’ snacks and gourmet sandwiches, perfect to bring along when exploring the island’s places of attractions.
