The Hospitality & Lifestyle arm of the E&O Group encompasses the luxury heritage Eastern & Oriental Hotel and Lone Pine Hotel, both in Penang. The Group's operational expertise is extended to hospitality management of serviced suites at E&O Residences Kuala Lumpur.
Established by the famed Sarkies Brothers in 1885, the E&O Hotel is the only hotel in the heart of the George Town UNESCO World Heritage Site that possesses prime sea frontage. Lone Pine Hotel, the oldest beach hotel that was established in 1948 along Penang island's famed Batu Ferringhi tourist belt, was given a new lease of life after undergoing extensive refurbishment and expansion in 2010. E&O Residences, the first service suites to share the name and pedigree of the legendary E&O Hotel, brings with it the level of hospitality and prestige that is synonymous with the luxury heritage brand.
Straits Quay in Seri Tanjung Pinang, Penang is the island's first seafronting retail marina with 270,000-sq ft of net lettable area converging around the voluminous Straits Court and the 42-berth Straits Quay Marina for private yachts, where Penang's first water limousine shuttles between Straits Quay and E&O Hotel.
In Kuala Lumpur, E&O's retail component is primarily designed to augment a specific property, namely the E&O-developed Dua Residency and St Mary Residences projects. Dua Annexe occupies 30,000 sq ft in a 3-storey glass and steel cube structure, accessible via link bridge to Dua Residency residents and on prime Jalan Tun Razak frontage serving the affluent neighbourhood and embassy district.
St Mary Place is a 2-storey retail podium with approximately 35,000-sq ft of net lettable space, just off the main business arteries of Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Raja Chulan, where multinational corporations and banks are headquartered.
To further cultivate its wellness pillar, E&O has partnered with WTS International, a leader in leisure and spa consulting with over 40 years’ experience, to establish EOS Wellness. This urban holistic wellness centre offers services ranging from innovative spa and beauty care treatments to customized nutrition and fitness programmes---all meticulously curated to help clients achieve all-round wellness. Located at St Mary Place, EOS Wellness is further defined by its instinctive partnerships with some of the world’s most respected brands in wellness such as Comfort Zone, Mesoestetic and Sundari.
