Onyx Hospitality Group has signed agreements with Malaysian developer SP Setia Berhad to launch Amari hotels in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

Set to open within the upcoming KL Eco City mixed-use development in the capital’s Mid Valley district in early 2021, 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.

Amari Penang, scheduled to open in late 2020, will offer direct connectivity to the Setia SPICE Convention Centre. The world’s first hybrid solar powered convention centre incorporates a 10,000-seat events arena, aquatic and sports centre, and a lifestyle and retail village.

The hotel is located in the Bayan Lepas district of Penang island, close to multinational corporate offices, Penang Golf Club, shopping malls and places of interest.

Both hotels will feature key Amari brand signatures including service from Amari Hosts, the street market-style Amaya Food Gallery, Cascade lounge, meetings facilities and gathering spaces. Other facilities include pools and terraces, as well as a fully equipped fitness centre.

Amari Kuala Lumpur and Amari Penang will join Amari Johor Bahru, which opened last year as the brand’s first in the country.

Onyx said it has five properties in the pipeline in Malaysia.
