ALOFT HOTEL | Kuala Lumpur ( KL Sentral ) | Completed

aloft hotel kl sentral-kuala lumpur






The bustling transportation hub of Kuala Lumpur Sentral will see the addition of a new hotel brand, The Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral, come early 2013. The 31-storey tower hotel will feature 482 rooms, several function rooms and a ballroom which can accommodate up to 850 people.

The hotel will be located next to the upcoming NU Sentral Mall, which is part of Lot G that forms a mixed commercial project comprising two other Grade A Office Towers in KL Sentral.

Both the hotel and office towers are developed by Excellent Bonanza Sdn Bhd, which is a 60:40 joint-venture company between Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd and Ireka Corp Bhd’s associate company, Aseana Properties Ltd.

A hotel management agreement was recently signed between the hotel owner, Iringan Flora Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Aseana Properties, and Starwood Asia Pacific Hotels & Resorts Pte Ltd. The development manager for the hotel is Ireka Development Management Sdn Bhd (IDM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ireka Corp.

Commenting on the partnership, Lai Voon Hon, president and chief executive officer of IDM said, “We are very excited to bring in the ‘Aloft’ brand to Malaysia. Aloft is a lifestyle brand which epitomises a unique, personalised experience that urbanites long for as they travel, be it for business or leisure. We are confident that Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral will serve the niche market, given its strategic location, strong branding and unique product offering.”

Senior vice president of acquisitions and development of Starwood Asia, Matthew Fry added the hotel will bring a dynamic mix of urban style and social interplay to the KL Sentral area.

“The Aloft brand’s bold design and social atmosphere is a big draw for the next generation of travellers, who expect their lodging to reflect their constantly evolving lifestyle.” Created to shake up the staid, traditional select service segment of the hotel industry, the brand delivers “style at a steal” with urban-influenced, modern, open and vibrant design, and a social guest experience at affordable prices.

The Aloft is shaking up the industry for the next generation of travellers. Its hotels are geared toward savvy, design-conscious consumers. The brand recently pioneered the industry’s first “keyless entry” automatic check-in programme at Aloft Lexington in Massachusetts, US.

Since its debut 2008, Aloft has opened over 50 properties worldwide, making it the most successful brand launch in the hospitality industry historyand can be found everywhere from Abu Dhabi to Beijing and Dallas.

STARWOOD'S ALOFT BRAND TO DEBUT IN KL IN 2013
Ireka's associate, Aseana, inks Hotel Management Agreement with Starwood Group



Kuala Lumpur, 15 November 2011: The Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral will soon infuse the sizzling 'style-at-a-steal' with a splash of urban chic into the bustling transportation hub of KL Sentral in early 2013. The signing of the Hotel Management Agreement was recently inked between the hotel owner, Iringan Flora Sdn Bhd (a subsidiary of Ireka Corporation Berhad's associate company, Aseana Properties Ltd, 'Aseana') and the Starwood Asia Pacific Hotels & Resorts Pte Ltd.

Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is ideally located in KL Sentral area with connection to the city's transportation network including the Light Rail Transit (LRT), Monorail as well as the Express Rail Link (ERL) to the KLIA. The hotel will feature 482 rooms within a 31-storey tower, several function rooms and a Ballroom which can accommodate up to 850 persons. Guests will be welcomed at the Aloft front desk and warmly hosted in the Re:mix lobby lounge. Hotel guests can also expect a unique, urbanely experience from its wide range of amenities namely the "w xyz" theme bar, the Re:fuel bar, "nook" all-day-dining restaurant, Re:charge fitness centre, Chill Out Sky Bar, infinity sky and wading pools as well as the Touch & Go kiosk providing Internet-based services.

The hotel tower is located next to the upcoming NU Sentral Mall, which is part of Lot G that forms a mixed commercial project comprising two other Grade A Office Towers in KL Sentral. Both the hotel and office towers are developed by Excellent Bonanza Sdn Bhd [a 60:40 joint venture between Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad ('MRCB') and Ireka's associate company, Aseana]. The development manager for the hotel is Ireka Development Management Sdn Bhd ('IDM'), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ireka Corporation Berhad.

Commenting on the partnership, Lai Voon Hon, President / CEO of Ireka Development Management Sdn Bhd said, "Indeed, we are very excited to bring in the 'Aloft' brand to Malaysia. Aloft is a lifestyle brand which epitomises a unique, personalised experience that urbanites long for as they travel, be it on business or for leisure. We are confident that Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral will serve the niche market, given its strategic location, strong branding and unique product offering."

Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Development of the Starwood Asia Pacific Hotels & Resorts Pte Ltd, Matthew Fry adds, "Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral will bring a dynamic mix of urban style and social interplay to the KL Sentral area. The Aloft brand's bold design and social atmosphere is a big draw for the next generation of travellers, who expect their lodging to reflect their constantly evolving lifestyle."

On 10 November 2011, Aseana's wholly-owned subsidiary, Silver Sparrow Berhad, secured a Guaranteed Medium Term Notes Programme of up to RM515.0 million ('MTN Programme')*. Maybank Investment Bank Berhad acted as the Principal Adviser, Lead Arranger and Lead Manager for the MTN Programme. The MTN Programme is guaranteed by a syndicate of guarantors that includes Danajamin Nasional Berhad, Malayan Banking Berhad and OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Berhad and has a tenor of up to 10 years. Rating Agency Malaysia Berhad ('RAM) has assigned a long-term rating of AAA(fg)/AAA(bg) with a stable outlook to the MTN Programme, reflecting the unconditional and irrevocable guarantees extended by the Guarantors. IDM is the development manager for both the Sandakan Harbour Square and Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral.
