Hotel News Resource

New Luxury Hotel and Residences to Join Regent Hotels in China, Developments in the Maldives, Thailand and the Philippines
Regent Hotels & Resorts announced the development of The Regent Kuala Lumpur, continuing the brand's global expansion. Opening fall 2011, the 250-room hotel will also feature 102 luxury apartments, The Regent Residences, Kuala Lumpur.

This new Regent property in Malaysia will be located in the city center, in the capital's 'Golden Triangle.' The property will offer dynamic city views and easy access to cultural and architectural sites, including the iconic 1,483-foot-tall Petronas Twin Towers and the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC).

Bjørn Gullaksen, president of the Regent Luxury Group, noted that The Regent Kuala Lumpur adds further momentum to the brand's global expansion. 'Offering an iconic heritage of luxury that was born in Asia-Pacific, we are pleased to be expanding Regent Hotels & Resorts to key destinations around the world,' Gullaksen said.

'The development of The Regent Kuala Lumpur is an important part of our strategy to establish the flagship brand in the Carlson Hotels portfolio in every major gateway city across Asia,' added Martin Rinck, president and managing director, Carlson Hotels Worldwide - Asia-Pacific. 'We are continuing to evaluate prime locations for more Regent hotels, as well as for our luxury Regent resorts, and we expect to announce further developments in the near future.'

Regent Hotels & Resorts in the region include two award-winning properties in China, The Regent Beijing and The Regent Shanghai, as well as The Grand Formosa Regent Taipei and The Regent Singapore.

Regent will dramatically increase its presence in Asia-Pacific in the coming months, with four additional openings planned through 2009. Upcoming developments in the region include The Regent Maldives (December 2008), The Regent Phuket, Thailand (March 2009), The Regent Bangkok, Thailand (2009), and The Regent Manila Bay, the Philippines (winter 2009).

Openings across the globe in 2008 include the just-opened The Regent Bordeaux, France, The Regent Bal Harbour, Florida (March 2008) and The Regent Boston at Battery Wharf (summer 2008).

Tallest Four Seasons coming up in KL
Friday, March 13, 2009
Business Times (by Vasantha Ganesan)

[IMG]http://www.**************/show/2009/03/15/07/19/2826946_714x1224.JPG[/IMG]

TWO tycoons and a royalty will go ahead and build the RM2.5 billion Four Seasons Place in Kuala Lumpur although a global economic crisis threatens to hurt demand for expensive hotels and apartments.

The much awaited property, located next to the Petronas Twin Towers, will be ready in 2012, says its developer Tan Sri Syed Yusof Syed Nasir.

It comprises a hotel, apartments and a mall, and will be the world's tallest Four Seasons development.

Four Seasons Place is being built by Venus Assets Sdn Bhd, a firm controlled by Ipoh-born tycoon Ong Beng Seng, Syed Yusof and the Sultan of Selangor.

"We are committed to the project even during the downturn as it has a huge multiplier effect," Venus Assets chairman Syed Yusof told Business Times in a rare interview.

It expects to hire contractors for the building in the third quarter of the year.

Venus Assets bought the prime 1.05ha site for RM90 million in 2003 from the estate of the late Khoo Teck Puat, the former major shareholder of Standard Chartered plc, a British bank.

"We received the development order (last December) and we are now evaluating various proposals from the contractors to do the job. We have completed piling works, he said.

Piling work for the building, located between Wisma Central and Menara Maxis, started in 2007, two years after the project was announced.

"There was a pause in the project only because we were redesigning the building in terms of positioning and the composition.

"Previously, the Four Seasons was supposed to encompass two towers, but now it will all be a single 65-storey tower," Syed Yusof said.

The redesigning meant a new proposal had to be submitted to the authorities for approvals and it took time to obtain the green light.

The building, described as futuristic and sleek, will complement the Twin Towers and enhance the Kuala Lumpur skyline.

"We have included a 150,000 sq ft of retail component into the tower. The hotel will have 250 keys of which 150 are hotel rooms and 100 serviced apartments.

"There will also be 140 units of apartments which will be sold," Syed Yusof said.

The entire component will be ready simultaneously and will be managed by Four Seasons.

The apartments, which start from 3,000 sq ft per unit, will be sold for about RM2,500 per sq ft.

"The cost of construction for all components including land and interior design is RM1.4 billion and the estimated gross development value of the project is RM2.5 billion," Syed Yusof said.

When asked what kind of average room rate the hotel may fetch when ready, he said, "Four Seasons is a rate leader with rates which are usually 20 per cent to 30 per cent higher that the existing rate leaders," he said.

The rate leader in Kuala Lumpur City Centre currently garners between RM600 to RM700 in ARR. This means that Four Seasons may lift the bar to between RM800 and RM900 per night.

Puncak Baru Project In Kampong Baru To Cost RM500 Million



AN ARTISTS IMPRESSION
- From Utusan Malaysia Online


KUALA LUMPUR, March 30 (Bernama) -- The Puncak Baru project, a mixed development venture on the site of the Sunday market in Kampong Baru here, is estimated to cost RM500 million.

Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique said the project on the land owned by City Hall (DBKL), provides a balance, by taking into account the needs of local residents and that of the property market.

He said that the project comprises four main components,a 60-storey condominium tower with 392 residential units, 40 floors of office units, three floors for shopping and businesses as well as an integrated development for the Kampong Baru LRT station and business space or "Bazaar".

"The Puncak Baru project is expected to change and enhance the image of Kampong Baru into a modern village cum commercial centre with the same world status as that of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre or KLCC," he said at the ceremony to launch Puncak Baru in conjunction with the redevelopment of the Sunday market site here Monday.

The project was launched by the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Zulhasnan also hoped that the project would serve as the catalyst for the development of Kampong Baru as a whole.

Meanwhile, Naza TTDI chairman SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin said the project is expected to begin within three months and slated for completion in four or five years time.

St. Regis luxury hotel coming up in Malaysia
(Xinhua)



KUALA LUMPUR, -- The six-star St. Regis hotel chain is coming to Malaysia, and owner One IFC Sdn Bhd said KualaLumpur is ready for the luxury brand, local media reported on Friday.

The 200-room St. Regis Kuala Lumpur and 200 freehold residences are slated to open in 2014. The development will be sited at KL Sentral, Kuala Lumpur.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc was appointed as the management operator at a ceremony in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday.

One IFC chief executive officer Carmen Chua said the company is committed to the project even though construction costs are rising.

"We are monitoring the situation very closely due to the scale of this project, but we are committed as we have confidence in Malaysia's economy and the country," the New Straits Times quoted Chua as saying.

Construction is scheduled to start in 2010. One of the world's top three architectural firms - Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM)-will be the hotel's main architect.

SOM designed the Freedom Tower in New York in the United States and the world's tallest tower, the Burj Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.

The hotel's development cost has yet to be determined as it is pending the design approval.

The design is likely to be unveiled late next year or early 2010, Chua said.

It will feature the famed hallmarks of St. Regis hotels, including luxury accommodation and the iconic butler service.

"When it is open for business, 95 percent of the staff will be locals, and we plan to recruit local graduates and train them," Chua said.

Najib wants immediate attention to ease city congestion
- Bernama - The Malaysian Insider

KUALA LUMPUR, April 25 — Three weeks after Datuk Seri Najib Razak went down to the ground to visit three localities in the heart of the city, the prime minister today sprung another surprise when he had a walkabout at the bustling Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (Jalan TAR) and Puduraya here.

However, he was not happy with the congestion and the inefficiency of the public facilities during his one-hour inspection, according to Federal Territory Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin.

Najib, who was dressed casually in a brown shirt and beige pants, arrived at Jalan TAR, near Semua House at 3.20 pm, accompanied by Raja Nong Chik, his deputy Datuk M. Saravanan and Kuala Lumpur city mayor Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail.

At Jalan TAR, which is famed for its textiles and jewellery shops, Najib was briefed by Ahmad Fuad on a proposed multi-storey carpark to be located near Semua House, and other upgrading plans for the areas.

He then spent about 30 minutes walking along the street where he also stopped to chat with the business people and the public there.

Later, he hitched on the crowded LRT (he had to stand) at Masjid Jamek station to the Plaza Rakyat station where he walked to the infamous over-congested Puduraya — where the express bus terminal for the northern and southern zones is located.

To escape the sweltering heat, Najib then stopped by one of the stalls in the building for a cool drink.

Najib, flanked by a phalanx of bodyguards and an entourage of officials, also attracted a large crowd of onlookers, who wasted no time to snap photographs of the nation’s sixth premier.

An excited woman, armed with her camera-phone and squeezing her way through the crowd, was heard saying: “Saya mahu ambil gambar perdana menteri saya” (I want to take pictures of my prime minister).

Later, Najib proceeded to inspect the long-abandoned Plaza Rakyat building project located next to Puduraya before departing at 4.25 pm.

Meanwhile, speaking to reporters later, Raja Nong Chik said the prime minister had voiced concern over the lack of facilities and congestion at the places and wanted urgent improvements made.

“He experienced first-hand, by the walkabout and boarding the LRT with the people, what they have to go through daily, like jams and other difficulties, in congested areas.

“He said such problems did not augur well for our country which is seeking to become a developed nation by 2020.

“He has instructed the federal territories ministry and other relevant ministries to ensure the facilities are improved for the benefit of the public,” he said.

On the Plaza Rakyat project, Raja Nong Chik said Najib wanted the developer to be given an ultimatum to complete it.

“The prime minister wanted us to give a deadline to the developer to complete the project. If they cannot adhere, we will terminate the contract and look for other means.

He wants the project to resume as soon as possible,” Raja Nong Chik said.

The project, which initially cost RM1.2 billion had been abandoned for 12 years after it changed hands many times. Its current developer is Global Upline.*

Quote:
* www.globalupline.com is actually Tan Sri Ting Pek Khiing's company which is the same person behind the original developer Wembley Industries Holdings Bhd's unit Plaza Rakyat Sdn. Bhd.
The Plaza Rakyat project was supposed to comprise three buildings — a 79-storey, 49-storey and 21-storey — for offices, condominiums and a budget hotel.

On the upgrading plan undertaken by Kuala Lumpur City Hall to ease congestion problems in Jalan TAR, Ahmad Fuad said a project for a multi-storey car park was already in the pipeline.

He said contract for the project on a 0.5 hectare land (near Semua House) had already been tendered out and it was expected to begin soon.

“It’s a 13-storey building and is estimated to cost RM50 million. It will house a multi-storey car park, hawker and trader centres, a multi-purpose hall and office space,” he added. — Bernama

YNH Prop to manage Fraser Residence KL
Written by Surin Murugiah
Thursday, 05 March 2009 23:07



An artist's impression of the Fraser Residence Kuala Lumpur.

KUALA LUMPUR: YNH Property Bhd’s unit Kar Sin Bhd has entered into an agreement with Frasers Hospitality Pte Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fraser and Neave Ltd, to manage gold-standard services residences in Kuala Lumpur.

In a statement on March 5, YNH said the 446-unit serviced residence development to be known as Fraser Residence Kuala Lumpur (FRKL) was the second “golden triangle” venture to be announced by Frasers Hospitality, the hospitality arm of property group Frasers Centrepoint Ltd.

The company said FRKL would be constructed on a piece of vacant land facing both Jalan Ampang and Jalan Sultan Ismail, next to Renassaince Hotel and would be close to two light rail stations and surrounded by entertainment malls, tourist attractions and offices.

The FRKL would comprise two towers with one- and two-bedroom service apartments, featuring a sky gymnasium, infinity lap pool, whirlpool and sauna. It is scheduled for completion in four years.

It said FRKL was part of a mixed development project comprising serviced residences, office suites and retail mall with a total gross development value of about RM550 million.

Last July, Fraser Hospitality signed an agreement with YNH for a 217-unit serviced apartment facility, Fraser Place Kuala Lumpur, which is part of mixed development on Jalan Perak.

It is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2009 and will offer gold-standard serviced residences comprising studios, one- and two-bedroom units and penthouses.

YNH executive chairman Datuk Yu Kuan Chon said the collaboration with Frasers Hospitality would further enhance its property’s values, image and reputation, in addition to the prime location of its properties.

Meanwhile, Frasers Hospitality chief executive officer Choe Peng Sum said the second agreement underscored the company’s commitment to Malaysia and its confidence in the long-term potential in this market.

Lam Chang group plans three high-end projects in KL
By S.C. CHEAH



THE well-diversified Lum Chang group will launch three high-end development projects in Kuala Lumpur in the first half of 2008.

They are a 40-storey serviced apartment in the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) area, Twin Palms Kemensah, and bungalows at its flagship Twin Palms Sungai Long.

Executive director Cham Kooi Joo told StarBiz that the 320-unit serviced apartment at Lorong Binjai (behind the Nikko Hotel) would have three layout designs: one-bedroom unit (750 to 850 sq ft), two-bedroom unit (1,100 to 1,300 sq ft) and three-bedroom unit (2,000 to 2,500 sq ft).

Cham said the Twin Palms Kemensah on about 30 acres of freehold land would have 128 units of three-storey bungalows with a large built-up area from 5,000 sq ft.

“It will have a gross development value (GDV) of about RM250mil and all the bungalows will be within a gated and guarded community,” he said.

He said the undulating land, currently a secondary jungle, was bought early last year. It is located just behind Zoo Negara.

“We have not fixed the price, but it will be very high-end. The upper floor will have an outdoor terrace. We are waiting for the approval of the building plans,” he added.

As for the bungalows to be launched in Twin Palms Sungai Long, Cham said they would have a built-up area of about 4,500 sq ft. Fabulous Range Sdn Bhd, a member of the Lum Chang group, is the developer.

Fabulous Range general manager George Fong said the elegant bungalows, called Tsara, would have modern and contemporary designs. “We feel that for the money one is paying for, the look of the bungalows should last at least the next 20 years,” he said.

Meanwhile, the group has handed over with certificate of fitness for occupation for all its sold-out LamanSeri homes (88 terrace houses and 24 semi-detached houses) in Shah Alam last June.

Its Suria 618 project in Section 27, Shah Alam (near LamanSeri), comprising 66 double-storey terrace houses with a single entry and exit point, has also been handed over.

Both projects were completed six months ahead of schedule.

Lum Chang is one of the earliest developers to build high-end projects in Kuala Lumpur. They include The Forum in Jalan Tun Razak, Damansara Villa, Wickham Manor and the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club (owned by Sime Darby since 1996).

Lum Chang Holdings Ltd started as a major earthworks, civil engineering and building contractor. Today, Lum Chang has grown to become a well-diversified network of 33 companies and 11 associated companies involved in hotel and serviced apartments, property and construction.

Listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange, it has diversified interests in Thailand, China, Britain, Australia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia and Singapore.

Swiss-Garden upgrades assets to meet new challenges
By Sharen Kaur



SOME hoteliers are upgrading to stay competitive and be ready when the market recovers from the global financial meltdown.

Properties managed by Swiss-Garden International Hotels, Resorts & Inns (SGI), the leisure arm of PJ Development Holdings Bhd, are in the process of being upgraded or have been refurbished since last year for RM70 million collectively.

SGI manages properties owned by PJD such as Swiss-Garden International Hotel Kuala Lumpur; Swiss Inn Kuala Lumpur; Swiss-Garden Resort and Spa Kuantan, Pahang; Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani, Kedah; and Garden-Lodge Sydney in Australia.

Off Pangkor Island in the 170ha Damai Laut complex in Perak, it manages Swiss-Garden Golf Resort and Spa Damai Laut; Damai Laut Golf and Country Club; and, Swiss-Court Holiday Apartments.

Properties in the Damai Laut complex are set to meet new challenges as the owners are expanding golfing holiday packages and MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions and expositions) business.

Swiss-Garden Golf Resort and Spa is investing RM10 million this year to upgrade its 300 rooms and to revamp its food outlets.

Resort director Ian Riley said the investment is also to build 15 villas. He said 80 per cent of the villas have been built and will be let out at more than RM1,000 per night from February 2009.

There are also five bungalows, available at more than RM1,500 a night, Riley told Business Times in an interview in Kuala Lumpur recently.

He said the resort is growing the number of tournaments and training programmes held in a year.

It is also working on a plan to boost room occupancy rate from 55 per cent per annum now to 65 per cent by next year. It wants to grow this year-on-year.

"We are looking to increase long term guests who are here on project basis and are in the process of getting big groups from Russia, Australia and the Middle East to come here on holiday," he said.

Riley said the resort hopes to still meet its target to achieve RM21 million in sales this year from RM18 million last year.

"The Japanese market for golfing has slowed for Malaysia and we are now trying to attract players from Europe and Asia Pacific. We hope the market will turnaround next year," he added.

High-end projects set to put Mulpha on profit track
By Sharen Kaur



Menara Mulpha at Jalan Sultan Ismail

MULPHA Land Bhd (MLB) (7889) is launching four high-end projects worth RM1.03 billion in Kuala Lumpur and Johor this year, in a bid to turn around.

MLB slipped into the red in the 12 months to December 2007, incurring a net loss of RM417,000 against a net profit of RM864,000 in 2006.

For the first nine months in 2008, MLB, the property arm of Mulpha International Bhd, posted a net loss of RM94,000.

Chief executive officer Lai Meng told Business Times in an interview that the way forward for MLB is to offer niche and sought-after products.
It is launching Bangsar Enclave in the next quarter, which features seven units of 3-storey villas in a gated and guarded community, worth RM70 million.

In the second half of the year, MLB will launch Menara Mulpha at Jalan Sultan Ismail, and a yet-to-be-named luxury development in Kenny Hills, offering eight unique villas with private pool, worth RM110 million, or RM15 million each.

Menara Mulpha is a 23-storey Grade A office building, worth around RM350 million. The property, which is the first iconic building with green features for the Mulpha Group, will be leased for recurring income, Lai said.

"These projects have strong unique product concept in superb locations and should provide impetus for growth. Nevertheless, we are mindful of the gloomy economic outlook and will adopt a cautious approach in our planning and execution," he said.

Also in the pipeline is Precinct 7 at MLB's RM1.2 billion Leisure Farm Resort project in Gelang Patah, located in Iskandar Malaysia, Johor.

It will offer 320 units of semi-detached homes and bungalows, surrounded by garden parks and canal waterways, worth a combined RM500 million.

"Precinct 7 will be developed in phases to enhance price positioning," added Lai.

MLB is also banking on its recently refurbished and restored project, opposite the Raintree Club in Ampang Hilir, to improve earnings.

Dubbed Raintree Residence, it has four semi-furnished 5-bedroom duplex penthouses, and eight units of 4-bedroom apartments, which will be leased.

"It will be our first rental product in Kuala Lumpur and should be favourable in this locality filled with expatriates and consulate staff," Lai said.

MLB's current projects are Bukit Punchor in Nibong Tebal, and Desa Aman in Padang Meha, Kulim, Kedah, worth RM706 million.
