Banyan Tree Hotels and Resorts will be raising the Angsana flag in Malaysia, with the launch of Angsana Teluk Bahang, Penang in 2Q2020.
The 250-key resort will offer a variety of room and suite categories, with the most extravagant accommodation option being the penthouse which will come with a private sky garden and outdoor jet tub.
Resort’s facilities include five F&B outlets; an infinity pool by the Jubilee Pavilion, a unique extended deck for relaxation; a second pool that comes with a children’s waterplay area; a spa; a gift shop; a kids’ club; and a wellness and fitness centre.
For meetings and events, the resort will offer a Kebaya Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 300 guests; and three smaller meeting rooms which are suitable for private meetings and intimate events of 10 to 40 persons. There is also the Jubilee Pavilion by the infinity swimming pool deck area, which can accommodate 30 to 200 persons.
Offering a peak into the resort’s interior design, resort general manager, Nigel Fisher said inspiration was drawn from Penang’s Peranakan heritage.
“Its architecture and interior design will incorporate the vibrant colours and intricate floral with geometric patterns of the Straits Eclectic Style, as well as pay tribute to Penang’s status of being a UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) world heritage destination,” he said.
