Straits Quay Marina was a befitting venue for Southeast Asia's most anticipated luxury lifestyle event

Sleek yacths, shiny super cars, handsome classic cars, the best wines and gastronomy to make any epicurean shiver in delight, upscale properties, sea planes, pricesless art ... it was a whirlwind four days of hedonistic pursuits when Rendezvous, one of the region's top-billed event of its kind, landed in Penang at the Straits Quay Marina.

Having made waves in Singapore and Phuket with stellar presentations of one-of-a-kind experiences by renowned brands in luxury lifestyle, Rendezvous Penang had a lot to live up to and it did not disappoint.

Official opening of Rendezvous 2018 and vintage cars were also among the highlights.

Held from 26-29 July 2018, the extravaganza drew several thousand visitors eager for a taste of the finest. The first thing that caught the visitors' attention were the two sea planes and 25 yachts docked at the marina.

The guest list read like the who's who of Penang's social circle, including property investors, yacht buyers, fashion enthusiasts, watch collectors, car lovers, art aficionados, and business decision-makers. Ferrari Owner's Club members were among the guests, and they were feted to a Sunset Cocktail Party by Eastern & Oriental (E&O) Berhad, who also revealed the full extent of the Seri Tanjung Pinang development widely regarded as the biggest seafront project in Penang.

Guests were entertained by a variety of live events

The event was punctuated by a number of highlights, including a pop-up by Martell called H.O.M.E. Guests were treated to special workshops and exclusive dining experiences based on the theme "Be Curious". Livening things up further were musicians across several genres - jazz, blues, funk and soul - as well as caricaturists and saxophonists.

Throughout the four days, Straits Quay Marina bustled with non-stop excitement that complemented the existing offerings at the adjacent Straits Quay, Penang's only waterfront shopping mall.
