Seri Malaysia Hotel Chain To Enforce Franchise Act


ALOR SETAR, Jan 20 (Bernama) -- Seri Malaysia hotel chain, the biggest middle-range hotel chain in the country, will adopt the Franchise Act 1998 in all its 18 hotels soon.

Seri Malaysia Hotel Sdn Bhd chairman Datuk Seri Dr Shafei Salleh said provisions in the Act would be enforced entirely to facilitate the company management and the agreement signed between the Seri Malaysia hotel chain and the operators.

Seri Malaysia hotels have not been enforcing the Act and was only using contract agreements to run the hotels.

"Enforcing the Act is the best approach as we want to standardise all procedures if it is agreeable by all Seri Malaysia Hotel operators," he told reporters after the Seri Malaysia Hotel board meeting.

Seri Malaysia Hotels, which started operations in 1995, have not been enforcing the Franchise Act as parliament had not approved the Act then.

Since then, the agreement with hotel operators was bound by contract terms and conditions.

Hotel Seri Malaysia di seluruh negara
ALOR STAR 20 Jan. - Rangkaian Hotel Seri Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. (RHSM) sedang mengenalpasti tapak-tapak baru untuk pembinaan Hotel Seri Malaysia supaya ia dapat memenuhi pasaran di seluruh negara, termasuk projek terbarunya di Perlis yang menelan perbelanjaan RM20 juta.

Pengerusi RHSM, Datuk Seri Dr. Shafie Salleh memberitahu, Hotel Seri Malaysia Perlis yang mempunyai 100 buah bilik dibangunkan di atas tapak seluas kira-kira dua hektar itu berpotensi menarik pelanggan berpendapatan rendah dan sederhana yang tidak mampu menyewa hotel-hotel bertaraf lima bintang.

''Selain Perlis yang pembinaannya akan dijalankan tidak lama lagi, RHSM merancang untuk mendirikan Hotel Seri Malaysia di Sabah dan Sarawak," kata beliau kepada pemberita di Hotel Seri Malaysia Alor Star di sini malam tadi.

Turut hadir Pengarah Urusan RHSM, Zahriah Abdul Kadir.

Dr. Shafie yang berada di sini sempena Mesyuarat Lembaga Pengarah RHSM berkata, setakat ini terdapat 18 buah Hotel Seri Malaysia yang beroperasi di negara ini dengan menyediakan pelbagai kemudahan menarik kepada pelanggan dengan tawaran harga bilik berpatutan.

''Matlamat kita adalah setiap negeri ada Hotel Seri Malaysia. Kalau tidak banyak, sekurang-kurangnya satu Hotel Seri Malaysia bagi setiap negeri.

Namun bagi negeri yang berpotensi seperti Kedah misalnya, terdapat tiga buah Hotel Seri Malaysia iaitu di Alor Star, Sungai Petani," kata beliau.

Sementara itu, katanya, RHSM membuka peluang kepada usahawan tempatan yang mempunyai tanah dan kemampuan untuk membuka hotel atas jenama Hotel Seri Malaysia dengan bantuan RHSM.

''Manakala bagi operator yang sedang mengendalikan Hotel Seri Malaysia di bawah sistem francais, kita sedang mengatasi apa sahaja masalah atau kelemahan supaya ia dapat diuruskan dengan baik," kata beliau.

Sehubungan itu, kata Dr. Shafie, bagi menjamin keberkesanan dalam pengurusan hotel, RHSM akan menguatkuasakan pelaksanaan Akta Francais 1998 terhadap semua operator Hotel Seri Malaysia supaya segala masalah, termasuk aspek pengurusan kewangan tidak timbul sehingga menjejaskan perniagaan mereka.

''Menerusi Akta Francais 1998, ia tentu tidak akan menimbulkan masalah malah operator perlu membuktikan keupayaan mengendalikan hotel masing-masing bagi mengelakkan mereka daripada ditamatkan perkhidmatan.

''Ia adalah situasi menang-menang kepada operator dan RHSM dapat meningkatkan prestasi Hotel Seri Malaysia," tambah beliau.

Shangri-La attracts institutional investors
By Yong Yen Nie
Email us your feedback at [email protected]


Despite owning some of the country's most popular luxury hotels and resorts, Shangri-La Hotels (Malaysia) Bhd is generally a low-key stock that does not generate much interest among investors.
This is because the counter is illiquid, given that the bulk of its shares (52.78%) is tightly held by Shangri-La Asia Ltd, which is backed by Kuok Group.
Hence, it came as a surprise when private equity fund Aberdeen Asset Management plc emerged as Shangri-La's substantial shareholder at the end of last year, after its Malaysian-based unit acquired 22.03 million shares, or about 5% equity interest, in the hotel management group.
Filings with Bursa Malaysia showed that Aberdeen continued to raise its stake in Shangri-La in December last year. The fund now owns a 5.58% stake in the group.
Gerald Ambrose, Aberdeen's managing director, says the fund has been investing in Shangri-La as it is attracted by the counter's low price.
"It is trading at only 6.5 times price over earnings, making it a cheap stock to buy. Although the stock is not performing very well currently, we believe the price will reflect its business fundamentals," he tells The Edge.
Ambrose adds that Aberdeen's target price for Shangri-La is RM4.50, and is willing to hold on to the stock or buy more on weakness as it likes the way its hotels are run.
"We like Shangri-La for its stable of good hotels, its underlying profitability, positive cash flow and transparent management," says Ambrose, adding that Aberdeen will keep the stock as long as it is happy with the group's performance.
Shangri-La's second-largest shareholder, Hong Kong-based Standard Chartered Private Equity Ltd (StanChart PE), also upped its stake in the hotel management group in December last year.
StanChart PE raised its stake in Shangri-La to 22.21% from 19.55% last month. Filings on Jan 12 showed that the company had raised its stake again by 0.03% or 164,800 shares between Jan 2 and 7. It currently owns 97.88 million shares in the group.
In September 2007, StanChart PE acquired 86 million shares or a 19.55% stake in Landmarks Bhd at an undisclosed price, after the latter had put up the block of shares for sale.
A foreign research house analyst says it is not surprising that the two investors have been accumulating Shangri-La's stock as the counter is undervalued, while also offering good dividends. The group declared a 10 sen dividend less tax for its financial year ended 2007.
"Shangri-La is also less exposed to the lower tourist arrivals that are expected this year as the group mainly focuses on business travellers.
"With the renovations at Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur completed this year, the hotel is expected to open more rooms and increase room rates, which will boost its profitability to mitigate fewer traveller arrivals," the analyst tells The Edge.
Aberdeen's Ambrose says although bleak economic conditions may affect the arrival of long-haul travellers into the country, Shangri-La is seeing an increase in business from regional travellers, especially at its Sabah operations.
Shangri-La owns and operates Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, as well as Traders Kuala Lumpur. In Penang, it runs Traders Penang and two resorts — Golden Sands Resort and Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa. In Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, the group owns the Rasa Ria Resort and Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa. Shangri-La also owns UBN Tower and UBN Apartments, both located next to Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur.
Nevertheless, looking at StanChart PE's and Aberdeen's recent moves, industry observers say a privatisation exercise could be in the pipeline for Shangri-La. StanChart PE has declined to comment on its recent move or the possibility of Shangri-La being taken private.
However, Aberdeen's Ambrose does not expect a privatisation. "If there is an attempt to privatise Shangri-La, we will look at it but we are not expecting it to take place at all," he says.
An analyst with a foreign research house says given that the stock has only about 16% public float, which is less than Bursa's listing requirement of 25%, the three substantial shareholders will have to eventually let go of some of their shares.
"They can't raise their stakes any much higher, given the low public float. However, we do not expect the three main shareholders to be too concerned about meeting the public spread requirement," says the analyst.
Ambrose says Aberdeen is not worried by Shangri-La's tight public float situation as Bursa has been lenient with several companies that are less liquid than Shangri-La. "However, we meet the management at least twice a year and we expect them to address the issue," he says.
In an announcement to Bursa last Tuesday, Shangri-La said it had not formulated any plans to increase the percentage of public shareholding spread and would apply for a time extension to comply with the prescribed spread.
Shangri-La hit a high of RM2.65 in November 2007 but fell to five-year lows in early December 2008. However, between Dec 5 last year and Jan 13 this year, the counter rose 45 sen to RM1.67 although trading had been flat.
Analysts say despite the challenging times ahead, Shangri-La's strong competitive positioning — backed by its solid, financial grounding — will help the group make it through a rough year.
Shangri-La posted a 15.5% decline in net profit for the nine months ended September 2008, mainly due to an asset write-off of RM17.1 million by Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur as well as a major renovation programme that has resulted in the closure of some of its rooms and a drop in occupancy to 48% for the period, compared with 71% a year earlier.
In a research report dated Nov 10, 2008, Standard & Poor's says Shangri-La's net profit for 3QFY2008 ended Sept 30 was within expectations as all its hotels experienced higher occupancy and average room rates, which mitigated the drop in contribution from its Kuala Lumpur hotel operations.
The recent moves by its substantial shareholders will certainly shore up investor confidence in the hotel group. After all, since its establishment in 1971, Shangri-La's hotels have survived at least two major financial crises. It is likely to survive this one as well.

Tune to open two hotels in Bali
By JACK WONG


KUCHING: Tune Hotels.com will open two hotels in Bali in November, in what will be the company’s first hotels outside Malaysia, said chief executive officer Mark Lankester.

Tune Hotels.com is also eyeing hotel markets in Thailand, China and India.

The two Bali hotels, a 170-room hotel in Legian Bali and a 139-room hotel in Kuta Bali, are now under construction, according to Lankester.

Tune Hotels.com is also scheduled to open a 258-room hotel in downtown Penang and a 222-room hotel at the low cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in KL International Airport in April.

Lankester said Tune Hotels.com had also planned for two hotels in Johor, one in Kuantan, and more hotels in other Sarawak towns.


Tune Hotels.com currently owns a 173-room hotel in Kuala Lumpur and a 165-room hotel in Kota Kinabalu.

“About 200,000 guests have stayed in Tune Hotels.com (since April 2007).

“As a Malaysian brand, we will continue to roll out more hotels to serve Malaysians first,’’ Lankester told reporters at the launch of the the group’s first hotel franchise, the Tune Hotels.com-Waterfront Kuching here yesterday.

The franchise is operated and managed by Limar Management Services Sdn Bhd and owned by prominent Iban businessnman Datuk Amar Leonard Linggi Jugah.

Lankester said Tune Hotels.com was in discussion with Limar to set up a second hotel in Kuching.

Meanwhile, Tune Hotels.com is offering promotional rates, from five sen per night for stays between November this year and January 2010, and from RM5 per night for stays between March and October this year.

The hotel group employs a self-service on-line booking system, modelled after that of low-cost airlines that encourages guests to book early to enjoy exceptionally low prices.

Hotel Wakaf MAIM Tanjung Kling siap 2010


GHAZALE Mohamad (dua dari kanan) bersama Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (kanan) melihat replika bangunan Hotel Wakaf MAIM pada majlis pecah tanah pembinaan hotel itu di Pantai Puteri, Tanjung Kling, Melaka, semalam.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



MELAKA 25 Feb. - Pembinaan Hotel Wakaf Majlis Agama Islam Melaka (MAIM) di Tanjung Kling di sini dijangka siap sepenuhnya pada Februari tahun 2010.

Ketua Menteri, Datuk Seri Mohd. Ali Rustam berkata, projek tersebut yang menelan kos sebanyak RM17 juta memulakan kerja-kerja pembinaan pada pertengahan bulan lalu.

Katanya, pembinaan Hotel Wakaf MAIM itu kelak bakal merancakkan lagi industri pelancongan negeri sekali gus melengkapkan keperluan sektor tersebut pada masa depan.

''Pembinaan Hotel Wakaf MAIM ini bertujuan memenuhi tuntutan fardu kifayah kepada masyarakat terutama di kalangan umat Islam yang datang bermusafir ke negeri ini dan bayaran penginapan yang setimpal dikenakan kepada golongan seperti ini," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada majlis perasmian pecah tanah Hotel Wakaf MAIM yang disempurnakan oleh Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi di sini, kelmarin.

Pada masa yang sama, katanya, pembinaan hotel wakaf tersebut berkonsepkan syariah yang pertama diwujudkan di negara ini.

Beliau memberitahu, Kerajaan Persekutuan melalui Jabatan Perdana Menteri telah memperuntukkan sejumlah RM256 juta di bawah peruntukkan Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (RMK-9) bagi disalurkan bagi pembangunan projek wakaf di seluruh negara.

Katanya, pelbagai projek fizikal telah dilaksana sepanjang tempoh pelaksanaan RMK-9 bagi merancakkan pembangunan wakaf terutama yang dikenal pasti berpotensi menyumbang kepada sumber pendapatan kepada masyarakat Islam.

''Pembangunan hotel yang berkonsepkan Islam itu juga bertujuan menyediakan kemudahan penginapan, perkhidmatan dan makanan mengikut kehendak syariah Islam.

''Projek ini merupakan antara usaha Jabatan Wakaf, Zakat dan Haji (Jawhar) dan MAIM untuk meningkatkan taraf sosio ekonomi," katanya.

Hotel Wakaf MAIM akan menjadi pemangkin dalam menjana peluang pekerjaan di kalangan umat Islam di negeri ini sekali gus menambah pendapatan negara menerusi sektor tersebut.

Hotels undergo makeovers during slowdown


SEVERAL major hotels in Penang have started renovating their premises during the global economic crisis in anticipating a lower occupancy rate.

Golden Sands Resort in Batu Ferringhi is in the process of massive renovation, with all its 395 rooms undergoing changes.

General manager Bruno Cristol said the upgrading work had been planned since early last year but they decided to accelerate the progress in view of the economic situation.

He said: “With less tourist arrivals expected, we’ve decided to accelerate all the work and finish it in mid-December before Christmas.

“The first batch of renovated rooms is expected to be open to the public by the first week of May.”

Lone Pine Hotel, also in Batu Ferringhi, is set to close on April 1 for renovation.

“The present downturn and expected slowdown in the next quarter is an opportune time to refurbish the hotel although plans for this long-overdue exercise have been laid out a while back,” said E&O Hotel general manager Michael Saxon.

He said the last refurbishment exercise was about a decade ago when the E&O Group first acquired the Lone Pine Hotel.

Paradise Sandy Beach Resort general ma-nager Jeff De Zilva said the hotel would be given a facelift next month.

“Traditionally, April is a slow time for hotels as it is the interim period between winter and spring. So, it’s a good time to carry out any upgrading work,” he said.

Under the Mini Budget, hotels and business premises get a boost of a maximum of RM100,000 in tax rebate for renovations.

“Although it may not be a large sum, we welcome the rebate,” said Malaysian Hotels Associations Penang Chapter chairman Marco G. Battistotti.

Sarawak to have 11,000 hotel rooms by 2011


MIRI: The number of hotel rooms in Sarawak is expected to double from 5,600 to 11,000 in the next two years.

State Urban Development and Tourism Minister Datuk Michael Manyin said the figure was based on the new hotels expected to mushroom throughout the state until 2011 and the growing interest among Sarawak entrepreneurs to venture into the hospitality industry.

Sarawak would be in a better position to attract more tourists with the availability of more hotel rooms, he told reporters after a dialogue with local tour operators recently.

During the dialogue, he urged the tour operators to come up with new tourism products that could attract tourists from the Southeast Asian region to Sarawak.

The ministry was now encouraging promotions to attract tourists from countries like Brunei, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia as it anticipated a drop in the number of long-haul tourists from Europe and the United States due to the global economic slowdown, he said. - Bernama

Guocoland invests RM50m to refurbish hotels
Published: 2009/04/16

GUOCOLAND (Malaysia) Bhd is investing RM50 million to refurbish its two hotels -- Guoman PD and Hyatt Johor Baharu.

Upon completion in June, the hotels will be rebranded as Thistle Port Dickson Resort and Thistle Johor Baharu, respectively.

"It is our first foray outside the United Kingdom, starting in Malaysia", Thistle Johor Baharu general manager Philip Skitch told reporters today.

The expansion is part of Thistle's two-year strategy to introduce the Thistle brand internationally.
Thistle is part of Guoman Hotel Management (UK) Ltd, owned by Guocoland Malaysia, a subsidiary of Hong Leong Group.


Thistle Hotels has 34 hotels across the United Kingdom, in most of the major cities, including 11 in central London.

"We are looking at a average 70 per cent occupancy in the first year in Johor Baharu and 65 per cent in Port Dickson," Skitch said.

Guocoland Managing Director Paul Poh said the chain of hotels would be expanded to other Asian countries.

Currently, the group plans to open two new hotels in Beijing and Shanghai by year-end.

He also said Guocoland was planning to develop a piece of land in Damansara Heights for mixed development.

"We haven't start construction yet. We are looking at 2011 or 2012," he added. -- Bernama

Sime seeks buyer for hotel
By Vasantha Ganesan
Published: 2009/04/22
http://www.equatorial.com/mel/

In a move to sell non-core businesses, the conglomerate has put up Hotel Equatorial Melaka for sale at an estimated RM180 million
Conglomerate Sime Darby Bhd (
4197
) has put up for sale its decade-old hotel in the heart of historical Malacca.

The five-star 496-room Hotel Equatorial Melaka will probably be sold for an estimated RM180 million, or roughly RM363,000 per room, sources told Business Times.

The sale is said to to be in line with Sime Darby's intention to sell non-core businesses.

Hotel Equatorial Melaka is owned by Syarikat Malacca Straits Inn Sdn Bhd, in which Sime Darby holds 55 per cent and the Malacca state government 30 per cent. The rest is held by Hotel Equatorial (M) Sdn Bhd, which is also the operator.
Sime Darby officials were unavailable for comment.

Sources close to the deal said that Zerin Properties has been appointed as the exclusive agent for the sale. Zerin Properties could not be reached for comment.

A source, who disclosed that several offers have been received for the property, said the agent was hopeful of completing the deal by the year-end.

If Sime Darby got its asking price, based on its interests, it could get as much as RM99 million from the sale.

It is believed that the hotel, with average occupancy of more than 60 per cent and average room rate of RM180 per night, made some RM37 million revenue in its last financial year.

Its earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation last year stood at around RM11 million.

Malacca, the third most visited state after Kuala Lumpur/Selangor and Penang, was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco).

Last year, it welcomed 7.2 million tourists. It projects 8.4 million arrivals this year. By 2010, it hopes to attract 13 million tourists.

Hotel Equatorial Melaka, located in Bandar Hilir, is a 22-storey building with three basement floors for parking. It has seven food and beverage outlets and a ballroom seating capacity of 1,300.

The hotel is within walking distance of the A Famosa fort and the Stadthuys.

According to a Sime Darby website, its hospitality involvement includes the PNB Darby Park Executive Suites in Kuala Lumpur, Harvard Suasana Hotel in Kedah and Darby Park Executive Suites in Singapore.

PK Resources plans RM58m 4-star hotel
Published: 2009/04/25





PK RESOURCES Bhd (5339) is investing RM58 million to build a four-star hotel adjacent to the Nilai Springs Golf & Country Club in Putra Nilai, Nilai Springs Resort Sdn Bhd general manager G.K. How said yesterday.

Construction of the nine-storey 183-room Nilai Springs Resort Hotel was progressing smoothly since last year and was nearing completion.


"According to our plan, we are to do the soft launch on June 8. The hotel is slated to start full commercial operations in September," he said.

How said the hotel would have the "Azuma Fusion Restaurant" serving a variety of Japanese, South Korean and Chinese food and western food by "Springs Cafe".
