With a presence spanning 75 countries worldwide, Hard Rock International celebrated the grand opening of its second Malaysian property, Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast, on Saturday, the 28th of September 2019.

Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast celebrations began on 28th September with the Grand Opening Party, featuring Hard Rock’s iconic Guitar Smash, fireworks, and live performances from Malaysian rock ‘n’ roll legend Amy Search, followed by DJ Chinois, and Hydra. A surprise visit by Rita Gilligan, the legendary waitress at the first Hard Rock Cafe in London in 1971, brought even more energy and excitement to the team and fans of the brand.
Adding to the celebrations in Malaysia this month, Hard Rock Hotel Penang livened up its 10th anniversary on 21st September with an electrifying poolside party that featured legendary local musicians, Alleycats, Dato’ Zainal Abidin and Headwind.
Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast features an iconic music memorabilia collection. The hotel offers complimentary tour for guests to view pieces from artists like Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Lady Gaga and Rihanna. Amy Search, the leading performer of the evening, also graciously donated his microphone stand and jacket during an exclusive donation signing ceremony, to add to the hotel’s regionally inspired collection.
With 365 music-inspired rooms and suites with balconies, and over 780 square feet of indoor event space along with three meeting rooms, Hard Rock Hotel Desaru Coast provides an amplified experience for families, honeymooners, groups and business travellers alike by offering unforgettable amenities and unparalleled services.
