HONG KONG – Swiss-Belhotel International has soft launched its first Malaysian property – the Swiss-Belhotel Kuantan – a four-star 366-key property also part of the larger Kuantan Waterfront Resort City mixed-used development project.
The chance to plant our flag in such a culturally dynamic country and deliver our award-winning international standards is very exciting and a key element of our broader growth strategy in Malaysia and globally,
Located 2km from Kuantan, the capital of Pahang state, the 27-storey property features amenities needed for the modern business and leisure traveller, with 86 Family Rooms dedicated to multi-generational vacations, while 16 villas have been set aside for those looking for luxury and exclusivity.
It’s also easy to make the shift to business mode in the 10 state-of-the-art meeting rooms and one ballroom, available for private discussions, conferences and gala nights alike.
Malaysia has long been on the Group’s radar, given the country’s appeal as one of Southeast Asia’s most popular destinations.
“The chance to plant our flag in such a culturally dynamic country and deliver our award-winning international standards is very exciting and a key element of our broader growth strategy in Malaysia and globally,” said Gavin M. Faull, Swiss-Belhotel International chairman and president.
In addition, the Swiss-Belhotel Kuantan also has the distinct privilege of being the first stage of the larger Kuantan Waterfront Resort City (KWRC): a 200-hectare mixed-used development project which will also be the region’s first integrated leisure, retail, dining, entertainment, hospitality and residential landmark. Visitors can anticipate a marina walk, promenade, waterfront bars and restaurants, duty-free shopping, golf course and a waterpark with a variety of watersports available.
“The fact that we are an integral part of such a transformative development as KWRC makes our entry into Malaysia even more special, and we plan to unveil new properties in other key destinations in the country including Kuala Lumpur and Melaka.”
