Hilton Launches First Doubletree by Hilton in Malaysia’s Putrajaya

Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur . October 25, 2021

Hilton (NYSE: HLT), announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside, its first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Putrajaya. Owned by Indaman Putrajaya Sdn Bhd, the 290-room hotel is managed by Hilton.

Paul Hutton, vice president, Operations, South East Asia, said, "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. 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."

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 leisure and business travellers.

Apart from the amenities, the hotel is also surrounded by scenic spots for taking in the local sights. Guests will enjoy the resort's close proximity to attractions including the Millennium Monument, the pink Putra Mosque, Moroccan Pavilion and Putrajaya Botanical Garden, or stop at one of the nearby shopping malls for retail therapy, catch a blockbuster movie or try their hand at bowling.

Alexandra Jaritz, senior vice president, Brand Management, Asia Pacific, Hilton, said, "The DoubleTree by Hilton brand is synonymous with comfort in a home away from home for travelers all around the world. It is now one of our fastest growing brands across the globe and the pace of openings we have been seeing in Asia Pacific over recent years is testament to the trust our guests and partners have in the brand. With a contemporary setting complemented by a wide range of facilities, and delightful hospitality delivered by our passionate team members, we are confident DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside will be top of mind for travelers both within Malaysia and beyond."


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 are aplenty. Children can enjoy themselves at the Splash Pool, while parents can dip in the Lakeside Pool, over-looking the serene Putrajaya lake or take some time at the fully equipped fitness centre to work out a sweat.


The resort 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 specialty dishes across Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban and Peranakan cuisines.

KOFFEE, the 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 the ideal venue for corporate and intimate functions and events. Spanning a total of 3,773 square meters 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, 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.

Weddings couples planning their special day have a choice of hosting their reception in an indoor or outdoor setting. The pillarless Grand Ballroom is designed to fit up to 400 guests, which can also be partitioned into two smaller rooms for more intimate ceremonies, while the Temenggor meeting room offers an amazing view of the southern end of Putrajaya lake, which makes for a vogue yet relaxed occasion.

Mobile Technology: Next Level Innovation

Despite the recent adversity that has challenged the entire lodging industry in every facet of its operation, the relentless march of digital innovation continues unabated. Part of this is driven by the need to outperform the competition so hoteliers can promote their operations to digitally-savvy Millennial travelers, and part of it is driven by the desire to continuously find new ways to enhance the guest experience. In that regard, hotel apps that provide mobile check-in/out, room access, room service, and the capacity to control in-room lights, curtains, temperature, and television programming from a guest's personal device is fast becoming standard. Soon, new features such as voice control, facial recognition, smart rooms, and the use of A.I. for things like virtual hotel tours may be on the horizon. The January Hotel Business Review will report on how some hotels are integrating new mobile technologies into their operations to offer their guests an impressive, next level experience.
