New Double Tree by Hilton for Putrajaya

Hilton has opened the 290-room DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside, its first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Putrajaya, the administrative capital of Malaysia.

Located in the heart of Malaysia’s third Federal Territory, DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside is a 20-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA 1 & 2), and 40 minutes from Kuala Lumpur city centre via the new KL-Putrajaya Expressway, positioning it as a convenient stopover for business travellers.

Welcoming guests with 290 well-appointed rooms, the hotel has ten accommodation types to cater to different guest needs. All rooms are non-smoking, with complimentary Wi-Fi for Hilton Honors members, a flat-screen TV with HD channels, 24-hour room service as well as a work-desk for business travellers to work in comfort.

Relaxation options at DoubleTree Putrajaya Lakeside include the Lakeside Pool, over-looking the serene Putrajaya lake and a fully-equipped fitness centre where business travellers can work up a sweat.

The resort also features two restaurants with a rich and sumptuous array of local and international cuisines, catering to guests from morning to night. Makan Kitchen is an all-day dining restaurant that is symbolic of Hilton’s DoubleTree by Hilton brand in South East Asia, serving authentic Malaysian fare and speciality dishes across Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban and Peranakan cuisines. Alternatively, KOFFEE, a deli located at the hotel’s lobby, invites guests to rest and relax during the day while indulging in a wide selection of coffee and colourful display of pastries and light bites.

Being in the vicinity of Malaysia’s federal administrative centre, DoubleTree Putrajaya is also the ideal venue for corporate and intimate functions and events. Spanning a total of 3,773 square metres with the largest room setup at 926 square meters, the hotel has 22 meeting rooms that are all outfitted with an LCD projector, Wi-Fi and wired internet, video and teleconferencing facilities, a digital sound system as well as a dedicated Event Manager to provide technical support. With the latest technology facilities, innovation-driven conference organizers will be able to keep their audiences engaged with stunning virtual conferences, trade shows, meetings and augmented reality experiences with DoubleTree Putrajaya Lakeside’s hybrid virtual studio.

The pillarless Grand Ballroom is designed to fit up to 400 guests, which can also be partitioned into two smaller rooms for more intimate events, while the Temenggor meeting room offers an amazing view of the southern end of Putrajaya lake, which makes for a vogue yet relaxed occasion.

“The launch of DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside brings us to our third DoubleTree by Hilton hotel to open in South East Asia in under a year,” says Paul Hutton, vice president, Operations, South East Asia. “Joining our portfolio of four DoubleTree by Hilton hotels in Malaysia as the 12th hotel in our operating estate in Malaysia, the launch of the resort during this period is testament to the commitment of Hilton to establishing our presence in new destinations across the country. We are optimistic that when regional and international travel resume in the long-run, DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside will be well-positioned to meet the evolved needs of our guests in a safe manner while delivering our renowned levels of Hilton hospitality to them.
