PENANG HARD ROCK WINS “BEST HOTEL DEVELOPMENT” AWARD

Penang’s Hard Rock Hotel has been celebrating several awards over the past year, not least of which is the Dot Award for best hotel development in Malaysia.

The Dot Property Malaysia Awards were established to recognise the best Malaysian developers, projects and design. They are seen as Asia’s most exciting property awards and are an extension of the successful Dot Property Awards that focused on highlighting the “Best of the Best” in Southeast Asian real estate last year. Winners are selected by Dot Property Malaysia and the regionally focused Dot Property Magazine.

Hard Rock Hotel Penang recently completed a full property refurbishment (end of 2016) and now offers guests modernised amenities. The refurbishment of the 6-story building consisting of 250-rooms took 181 days to complete.

New carpets were installed in both rooms and corridors while all guest rooms were refurbished with new interiors and features. Each room suffuses cool grey and purple shades to create a visually stimulating atmosphere and purple illuminated walls to add a sense of fun and cosiness to the room. All rooms are equipped with new contemporary workspaces, BOSE Sound Systems and 50-inch LED flat screen TVs with free HD on demand blockbuster movies.

Additionally, the hotel has also recently refreshed a number of memorabilia displays with new items. Some of the new stars on board are Steve Aoki’s Stage Worn Outfit, Lady Gaga’s White Pants, Taylor Swift’s Beige Tank Dress, Christina Aguilera’s Black Ribbed Dress, Alicia Key’s Gold Beaded Fringe Dress and Rihanna’s Dark Purple Dress and Custom Guitar.

Great for the family – the beachside pool and entertainment area

The Hard Rock, Penang has a decidedly “family” tilt. In February 2018, hotel management announced the property had been recognised as a winner in Top 25 Hotels for Families in Asia and Top 10 Luxury Hotels for Families category of the 2018 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for Hotels, ranking #22 out of 25 in Asia and #3 out of 10 in Malaysia. Travellers’ Choice award winners were determined based on the millions of reviews and opinions collected in a single year from TripAdvisor travellers worldwide.

Hard Rock Hotel Penang has a lot to offer to keep the lil’ ones busy all day – Lil’ Rockers Infants Club, Roxity Kids Club, TABU Teens Club, Roxity Kids Suites, waterslides and water playground, fun pool activities, a large free-form pool, kids’ menus and even spa treatments for kids.
