Onyx Hospitality Group is partnering with Malaysian property developer SP Setia Berhad to launch the 453-key Amari Penang hotel in the third quarter of 2022.
The Asian-inspired Amari brand is preparing to open a newbuild scheme on the island of Penang.
Made for business and leisure
On debuting in Q3 2022, Amari Penang will cater for business and leisure travellers in a strategic location with direct connectivity to the world’s first hybrid solar-powered convention centre, Setia Spice, in the Bayan Lepas district. The same complex also features a 10,000-seat events arena, an aquatic and sports centre, and a lifestyle and retail village.
GDP Architects has been brought in to oversee the hotel’s architectural design, with Landarc Associates leading on landscape design.
Reflecting the locale
The under-construction hotel’s 453 guestrooms will be complemented by signature Amari amenities, including service from Amari Hosts, the Cascade Lounge, and the Amaya Food Gallery offering a street market-style dining experience.
Moreover, the property will incorporate indoor and outdoor space for meetings and other events. Among the additional guest facilities will be a pool and terrace, as well as a fully equipped fitness centre.
In all of its properties, Onyx Hospitality Group’s Amari brand aims to provide a celebration of modern Asia, with each site reflecting the unique characteristics of its setting through everything from architecture and interior design to Thai-inspired service and local cuisine.
