Strengthening its presence across major cities in Malaysia such as Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru and Penang, Doubletree by Hilton Melaka recently made an epic debut in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage City of Melaka.
Check out 9 reasons why we think Doubletree by Hilton Melaka is an ideal stay!
DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka is located in Hatten City, only minutes away from Melaka’s major tourism attractions. It is directly linked to the latest skyscraper in town, Elements Mall, which definitely gives a convenient choice when it comes to shopping, dining or even watching movies!
DoubleTree cookie has played a starring role for DoubleTree properties and we just cannot get enough of it! With warm hospitality and heartfelt manner of the hotel’s staff, it almost feels like coming home, especially when guests munch on delicious chocolate chip cookies as they head up to their rooms!
From its luxurious lobby to restaurants and cafes, gymnasium to infinity pool and even the staircase, everything about the hotel is stylish, besides being one of the tallest buildings in Melaka. There are 273 spacious guestrooms, including 27 suites and a Presidential Suite. The views offered are also breathtaking, whereby guests can choose between the Straits of Malacca or the bustling city.
The culinary offerings at DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka is definitely gratifying. It has three outlets that serve wondrous food and beverage selections: Makan Kitchen that serves local and international favourites; Tosca serving Italian cuisine; and Axis Lounge offering drinks and light snacks. While Makan Kitchen features daily buffets and live cooking stations, Tosca and Axis Lounge, on the other hand, offer a stunning city-view, especially during sunset.
Good to know: Guests may enjoy all the three outlets for their Sunday Hopping Brunch (12.30 p.m. until 4.30 p.m.) at only RM112!
Talking about a family staycation, DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka is the praiseworthy choice. It has a fitness centre, an outdoor infinity pool, sauna and steam rooms, including a children’s club. To make their stay more comfortable and secure, it has the option of connecting up to four rooms with a shared private hallway.
For business travellers, DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka also has meeting and event facilities that can cater to their needs such as an 800—metre squared ballroom that can accommodate up to 1,100 people, five meeting rooms and a boardroom. The ballroom, ladies and gentlemen, is the biggest ballroom without pillars in Melaka!
Elements Mall is fast becoming the talk of the town for being one of the tallest buildings in Melaka. It also has the highest 360-degree open-air viewing deck in Melaka named Sky Deck at Hatten City, located on the 44th floor! The promotional price is RM15 but if you want to visit this new attraction for free, you can simply just show your room key card at Sky Deck’s ticketing counter on level G of Elements Mall!
Good to know: Sky Deck at Hatten City opens from 10:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. (Sunday – Thursday) and 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m. (Friday, Saturday and Public Holiday)
The room rates start from RM250++ (room only) per night. With state-of-the-art facilities and services, the price, we think, is actually worth it!
Since DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka is part of the Hilton Honors programme, an award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 14 distinct brands, members can enjoy instant benefits, including free standard Wi-Fi, a flexible cash/points payment slider, an exclusive member discount and point’s redemption for free nights, if book directly through preferred Hilton channels.
