Hilton has signed a management agreement with Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) to open Conrad Kuala Lumpur in the heart of the Malaysian capital.
Slated for completion in 2021, the 544-room new-build hotel will mark the entry of Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s global luxury brand, into Malaysia.
Located within the prime Golden Triangle district of Kuala Lumpur and one hour by car from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the hotel will be part of a mixed-use development that also comprises an office tower.
The hotel will feature an all-day dining restaurant, two specialty restaurants, a bar, a business centre, spa, fitness centre, a swimming pool, and a 3,400m² events space.
In Malaysia, Hilton currently operates 11 properties across three key brands – Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn. Over the next three to five years, the company is targeting to open nine hotels in its pipeline, including five hotels under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, and the introduction of lifestyle brand Canopy by Hilton.
