290-room DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside is located on four acres of landscaped grounds along idyllic Putrajaya Lake.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - Hilton, today announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside, its first DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Putrajaya. Owned by Indaman Putrajaya Sdn Bhd, the 290-room hotel is managed by Hilton.

Paul Hutton, vice president, Operations, South East Asia, said, "The launch of DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside brings us to our third DoubleTree by Hilton hotel to open in South East Asia in under a year. Joining our portfolio of four DoubleTree by Hilton hotels in Malaysia as the 12th hotel in our operating estate in Malaysia, the launch of the resort during this period is a testament to the commitment of Hilton to establishing our presence in new destinations across the country. We are optimistic that when regional and international travel resume in the long run, DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside will be well-positioned to meet the evolved needs of our guests."

Located in Malaysia's third Federal Territory, DoubleTree by Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside is a 20-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA 1 & 2), and 40 minutes from Kuala Lumpur city centre via the new KL-Putrajaya Expressway – positioning it as a convenient stopover for leisure and business travellers.

Apart from amenities, the hotel is surrounded by scenic spots for taking in the local sights. Guests will enjoy the resort's close proximity to attractions including the Millennium Monument, the pink Putra Mosque and more, or stop at the nearby shopping malls for retail therapy, catch a blockbuster movie or try their hand at bowling.

Alexandra Jaritz, senior vice president, Brand Management, Asia Pacific, Hilton, said, "The DoubleTree by Hilton brand is synonymous with comfort in a home away from home for travellers all around the world. It is now one of our fastest-growing brands across the globe and the pace of openings we have been seeing in Asia Pacific over recent years is testament to the trust our guests and partners have in the brand".
