The company expects to renovate the existing building’s exterior, as well as rooms, suites and public facilities. The Penang location will feature 318 ocean-and-courtyard-view rooms, complete with private balconies. Guests will be able to choose from three onsite gourmet restaurants and bars, including an all-day restaurant, a lobby bar and a café. The new resort will also feature meeting and event spaces, an outdoor pool and a children’s recreational area.
