The Grand Opening was a testament to the hotel’s service and commitment to bring the best experience towards their guests. With exclusive appearances by renowned bands– JW Band and Element, the attendees were treated to a grand celebration that also championed local Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (UMKM). Their products such as the Pumpkin Stick, Bakso Chips, Tempe Chips and more– all sourced from Malang were featured as complimentary amenities in various suit rooms, an effort to foster local industry growth. 

One remarkable feature that amplifies the Alana Hotel Malang’s appeal as a smart hotel is the integration of modern amenities like the Google Nest to every guest room, catering to the needs and preferences of the tech-savvy travellers, eager to explore Malang city. The Google Nest’s Voice Command is a great help for guests to effortlessly navigate services, from ordering meals to seeking recommendations for the best tourist spots. 

The hotel’s proximity around key transportation hubs such as the Abdulrachman Saleh Airport, Blimbing Station, Arjosari Terminal and Singosari toll exit also makes The Alana Hotel Malang a very convenient accommodation choice for tourists and business travellers alike.
