f KL Eco City in the capital’s MidValley district, whilst Amari Penang will offer direct connectivity to the Setia SPICE Convention Centre.

Amari Penang is scheduled to open in late 2020, with Amari Kuala Lumpur opening in early 2021.

Situated within the KL Eco City mixed-use landmark development, the 252-room Amari Kuala Lumpur will enjoy direct access to corporate office buildings, residential towers, a retail mall and integrated rail hub with inter-city and inter-state rail connections. Following completion, the 25-acre KL Eco City, master-planned by Los Angeles based architectural and urban design firm The Jerde Partnership, will be one of Malaysia’s first integrated mixed-use green developments.

Amari Penang will offer 453 rooms in a tower connected to Setia SPICE, the world’s first hybrid solar powered convention centre. The complex also incorporates a 10,000-seat events arena, aquatic and sports centre, and a lifestyle and retail village. Located in the Bayan Lepas District of Penang Island close to multinational corporate offices, Penang Golf Club, shopping malls, entertainment areas and places of interest, the hotel will appeal to both business and leisure travellers.

Onyx Hospitality Group President and Chief Executive Officer Douglas Martell said: “In a market as dynamic as Malaysia, we are proud to establish a dual-property deal with world-renowned SP Setia to bring our flagship Amari experience to two premium locations in the gateway cities of Kuala Lumpur and Penang.”

 “Since launching our first hotel in Malaysia with the opening of Amari Johor Bahru, we are continuing our commitment to this market with the upcoming opening of OZO and Shama properties in Iskandar, Johor, as well as an OZO hotel in Penang’s Georgetown. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with SP Setia for Amari Kuala Lumpur and Amari Penang, and to having three of our core Onyx brands present across some of the most popular business and leisure travel destinations in Peninsula Malaysia,” Martell added.

Based in Bangkok, Onyx Hospitality Group has a growing regional portfolio of close to 50 operating properties across three core brands in eight countries. The group has a robust development pipeline of close to 30 new properties in markets such as Vietnam, Indonesia and Australia, and has set a target of having 99 hotels open by 2024.
