The Granite Luxury Hotel is built and managed by the award-winning M Summit Group which has over 20 years of development experience under its belt. The Group has built from lavish bungalows and luxury condominiums to factory parks and hotels.
An epitome of a city resort, The Granite Luxury Hotel on the island paradise of Penang in Malaysia offers the best of all worlds – retail therapy, blissful relaxation and urban convenience. Most city hotels are tailored towards short-term business visits. However, holidaying guests at The Granite can spend their days in the plush comfort of their suites, have a cocktail while floating in the acrylic bottom swimming pool or uncover George Town’s tourist spots.
Located conveniently in the middle of the city centre, the hotel is within walking distance to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town, boutique museums, popular street food havens, world-famous murals and shopping malls. Business travellers who have scheduled meetings with state officials in Komtar where the state administrative centre is located, can just walk across the road from The Granite.
Spread over two interconnected buildings, The Granite houses 100 suites and 52 single/double rooms. And if you are having a special celebration, you can opt for the hotel’s romantic Darling Suite (aka Honeymoon Suite), lavish Presidential Suite, Safari Suite (great for family vacations) or Diva Suite (perfect for bachelorette/pyjama parties). There are also business suites which can double up as ideal venues for small meetings, seminars, workshops and job interviews. These suites come with their own bedrooms, kitchenettes, dining areas and living rooms.
All of these accommodation options comprise myriad amenities such as tea and coffee-making facilities, minibars, flat screen televisions, premium mattress, hypoallergenic pillows, fluffy bathrobes and slippers, hair dryers and the exclusive Nuggets toiletries. Look out the windows and you can enjoy stunning views of historic George Town. Many of the rooms and suites offer awe-inspiring views of the state’s tallest skyscraper – Komtar – and the sea.
Boasting many unique features, two of them just recently secured entries in the Malaysia Book of Records. The hotel’s acrylic bottom swimming pool was adjudged the highest in the country while the automated car park is the nation’s tallest. The car park shows an innovative way of city parking, where drivers just need to drive into a platform, exit from the car and watch the car rise above and park itself. It saves time to find parking spaces and also prevents car break-ins, vandalism and car thefts.
In short, The Granite is simply the perfect one-stop centre for romantic escapes, family vacations, work assignments and business meetings.
