DoubleTree By Hilton opens in Damai Laut, Perak

FOLLOWING the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Shah Alam i-City in July, Hilton Hotels & Resorts on Thursday (Sept 15) announced the opening of its latest addition in Malaysia.

The DoubleTree by Hilton Damai Laut Resort, with unobstructed views of the Straits of Malacca and Pangkor Island, marks the global hospitality company’s continued expansion in the country.

Formerly known as Swiss-Garden Beach Resort Damai Laut, the rebranded property offers 294 rooms for families, couples and solo travellers alike.

Each digital key-enabled guest rooms features a private balcony with views of the sea or forest. The rooms also include a mini fridge, HD television and high-speed Internet access.

Hilton area VP and South-East Asia head Alexandra Murray said DoubleTree by Hilton Damai Laut Resort joins the six DoubleTree by Hilton hotels already in operation, adding to the current family of 13 hotels in Malaysia.

“As we continue to expand our presence in Malaysia, including in key secondary and tertiary markets, we are thrilled to bring our hospitality to Lumut, a coastal town known for its rich heritage, so that our guests can experience Perak on an elevated level.”

The beachfront resort offers activities such as snorkelilng, diving, banana boating and fishing, as its private beach provides an escape from life’s hustle and bustle. 

Parents can relax at the spa and the outdoor pool, while their children have fun at the kids’ club and mini waterpark. 

An 18-hole golf course awaits golf enthusiasts, just five minutes away from the resort.

DoubleTree by Hilton Damai Laut Resort GM Sugumaran Ramachandran said Perak’s unique combination of culture and natural beauty — paired with the brand’s warm, easy spaces and friendly hospitality — will provide guests with a sense of home where they can be their everyday selves.

Dining options include Makan Kitchen, an all-day dining restaurant, and Hotpot, a steamboat restaurant.

Members of Hilton Honors, the guest-loyalty programme for Hilton’s 18 brands, who book directly through the preferred Hilton channels have access to instant benefits, including a flexible payment slider. 

Members also enjoy popular digital tools available exclusively through the industry-leading Hilton Honors mobile app, where Hilton Honors members can check-in, choose their room and access their room using a digital key.

To celebrate the hotel’s opening, Honors members will receive 1,000 bonus points with a maximum stay of five nights booked from Sept 15 till March 30, 2023. — by TMR / Pics source: Hilton
