Come for business and stay for pleasure at the Amari SPICE Penang, one of Malaysia’s most exciting new business destinations. 

Strategically located in Bayan Lepas, Penang’s central business district, and just a ten-minute drive from Penang International Airport, the hotel is perfectly situated for business executives. It is also directly connected to the Setia SPICE Convention Centre, the world’s first hybrid solar-powered MICE venue, which has helped redefine Penang as a business tourism hotspot. 

Amari SPICE Deluxe Room King

The 453 contemporary guest rooms and suites have been thoughtfully designed to offer a home-from-home appeal, with warm furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows. They are also fully equipped with modern facilities such as an ergonomic workspace with international sockets, smart TV and wireless sound bar, and high-speed wifi connectivity. Guests can also upgrade to an Executive Room or Suite to gain access to the 25th-floor Executive Lounge, which comes with the additional perks of personalised service, complimentary breakfast, evening cocktails, all-day light bites and drinks, plus stunning views across the island.

When it comes to meetings, the Amari SPICE Penang has a full complement of facilities to host a wide range of functions. The 240sqm pillarless ballroom is a stunning space for large conferences, annual dinners and customised events of up to 360 people, complete with a pre-function area and professional event planners on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly. Additionally, five smaller function areas are perfect for boardroom meetings of up to 10 people, with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment to ensure impactful presentations.

Amari SPICE Executive Lounge

A long day of meetings deserves a tasty reward, and with four restaurants and bars, the Amari SPICE Penang has everything from international offerings to mouthwatering local specialities cooked up by a stellar team of chefs. Explore East-meets-West cuisine at the all-day dining restaurant, Amaya Food Gallery, with local Malaysian favourites, regional Asian and western flavours, and signature Thai-style highlights. Taking inspiration from Asia’s hawker culture, enjoy the smells and action from market-style stalls and live kitchens. The restaurant also offers exceptional wines in The Cellar, a tropical al fresco garden setting on the Amaya Terrace, and a sunset Happy Hour at the Amaya bar.

Alternatively, head to Cascade, the chic and cosy lobby lounge, for light bites, afternoon tea and a curated selection of tea and coffee in the day. In the evening, the space transforms into a stylish bar lounge, with a leading selection of wines from around the world – a great option for more casual business meetings or to impress a new client. Continue the party with cocktails at D’Observatory Sky Bar, one of Penang’s coolest new rooftop bars, with innovative cocktails, EuroAsia tapas, and panoramaic views over the city skyline.

After business is wrapped up, it’s time to relax and enjoy the hotel’s premium leisure facilities, whether that means working up a sweat at the contemporary FIT Centre, diving headfirst into the outdoor saltwater swimming pool, or soaking up some rays on a poolside lounger with a refreshing drink from the Aqua Bar. For the ultimate pamper session, guests can pay a visit to Breeze Spa, a contemporary retreat with a range of holistic treatments that will rejuvenate mind, body and soul. Beyond the hotel, Penang offers countless pleasures, from the George Town Unesco World Heritage Site to stunning beaches and historical museums.
