Starwood upbeat on its upmarket hotel brands
By Vasantha Ganesan Published: 2010/06/14

STARWOOD Hotels and Resorts says that Kuala Lumpur could house all three of its high-end hotel brands within the next five years.

The group, which has confirmed the opening of the St Regis in KL Sentral in 2014, expects that the city centre has the capacity to accommodate its W and Luxury Collection brands.

Its regional vice-president for Southeast Asia, Charles Abbott, in a recent interview with Business Times, said that these openings will also help raise the average room rate (ARR) of hotels in the country.

Malaysian hotels are touted to have one of the lowest, if not the lowest, room rates in the world.

The opening of hotel brands in the likes of Grand Hyatt, Four Seasons Place Kuala Lumpur, The Raffles and St Regis is expected to positively alter the rates scenario in Malaysia.

In most countries, the bulk of a tourist's spending goes towards accommodation followed by shopping. However, in Malaysia, it is the opposite.

"We could have the hotel (luxury hotels) anything between 18 months to five years," Abbott said.

When asked about the number of parties that it was in talks with for future developments in Malaysia, Abbott said there has been an increase in enquiries, particularly in the past two months.

"Every couple of days, one of us (at top management) is getting enquiries to talk about future projects," he said, indicating that confidence in the market had returned.

Starwood has a sole luxury hotel in Malaysia now in the resort island of Langkawi, Kedah. It started managing the The Andaman, A Luxury Collection Resort from December 2009.

This particular property is expected to undergo a two-year makeover.

"There will be a RM10 million investment this year ... depending on the cash flow," Abbott said.

"Luxury is coming back. People are willing to spend money on luxury," he said, when asked about how much better he expects The Andaman to perform following the renovation.

Meanwhile, Abbott feels that Starwood hotels in Malaysia, which total eight, will perform well as there continues to be a good mix of both domestic and international tourists.

"Everything is looking positive compared with six months ago," he said.

All Starwood hotels in Kuala Lumpur - The Westin, Le Meridien and Sheraton Imperial - are doing well compared against its market segment.

Similarly, its hotels in East Malaysia (Four Points by Sheraton Kuching and Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu) are peforming well.

So too are its Langkawi properties, where apart from The Andaman, it also has a Westin and a Sheraton brand. The ARR in Langkawi is higher than anywhere else in Malaysia.

ETP takes off, RM30bil worth of projects signed
By SIRA HABIBU Published: Monday October 25, 2010 MYT 5:35:00 PM

KUALA LUMPUR: The RM1.3tril Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) took off to a great start with nine agreements worth more than RM30bil signed Monday.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said it was a good start to convince those who had doubted the ETP.

Among the nine entry-point projects are the setting up of a RM214mil wafer fabrication plant by German-based LFoundry in the Kulim Hi-Tech Park and construction of a RM1.2bil six-star hotel and residence in KL Central by St Regis.

Other projects are Mydin's RM1bil investment to open 14 new outlets and assisting small sundry shops via the Tukar project, setting up of RM124mil bio-oil plant in Lahad Datu, Sabah, and the RM26bil KL International Financial District by Mubadala.

He also announced that Malaysia Airports Holding Bhd had awarded a 25-year concession to WCT Bhd to build RM486mil integrated. Complex at KLIA2.

Renowned oilfield services player Schlumberger's Eastern Hemisphere Global Financial Services Hub in Bandar Utama, is part of Greater KL/Klang Valley Initiative, said Najib.

The Higher Education Ministry has also selected Asia e-University as the gateway university for international education for distance and online learning. It is expected to generate RM100mil.

KUALA LUMPUR | St. Regis Hotel & Residences | 48 fl | U/C

Finally, St Regis to transform Kuala Lumpur skyline
By Racheal Lee Friday, 29 October 2010 18:50
http://www.theedgeproperty.com/news-...r-skyline.html



KUALA LUMPUR: Property is one of the main focuses of the recently-launched Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) roadmap, as the development of industrial, commercial, residential and even tourism centres are expected to help kickstart the transformation of Malaysia into a high-income economy.

The thrust on property is also crucial given the government’s vision to transform the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley area into one of the world’s top 20 cities in terms of economic growth as well as livability.

Property projects form part of the 131 entry-point projects (EPP), and 53 EPPs, with a total investment of US$97 billion (RM301.6 billion), are already in various active stages of investment.

Some of the projects announced include the relocation and setting up of five wafer fabrication plants by German firm LFoundry in Kulim Hi-Tech Park, Kedah, over the next five years with the initial investment of RM214 million and total estimated investment at RM1.9 billion.

Another notable project is what is touted as the first six-star hotel in Kuala Lumpur — the St Regis Kuala Lumpur, which involves a RM1.2 billion investment. Offering 208 hotel rooms and 160 serviced apartments in KL Sentral, the building will be managed by six-star luxury hospitality brand St Regis.

The all-suite hotel will be built on a 2.2-acre freehold site in the 72-acre KL Sentral, one of the largest commercial developments in Kuala Lumpur.

St Regis Kuala Lumpur will have a total development area of 1.4 million sq ft and will be developed by One IFC Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between CMY Capital and Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB). CMY Capital is wholly owned by prominent businessman Tan Sri Chua Ma Yu, while MRCB is the master developer of KL Sentral.

ONE IFC Sdn Bhd CEO Carmen Chua believes that the development’s proximity to the KL Sentral transportation hub will contribute to its success.

She expects the hotel to attract a historically untapped market of high-income tourists as the St Regis brand caters to heads of states, diplomats, dignitaries and captains of industry.

“St Regis Kuala Lumpur will create a new benchmark in the hospitality industry and service sector and it will be a new landmark in the country’s international tourism promotion.

“It will have 200,000 sq ft of convention facilities and we will be one of the hotels with rooms that are among the largest in the world. Construction will begin next month and it is scheduled for completion and opening in November 2014. We are now at the final stage of getting the approval,” she told The Edge Financial Daily.

However, she declined to reveal the exact room size, alongside details such as the cost per room and the number of floors. A management and operations agreement for the project with Starwood, the owner and operator of the St Regis brand, was signed in June 2008.

While the selling price of the serviced-apartment component has yet to be determined, Chua said the price tag “will be comparable to” its recently-completed residential development One KL. This project is located opposite the Petronas Twin Towers.

The serviced apartment component is scheduled for launch in 2Q2011. Located atop the hotel component, it will be managed and operated by St Regis.

The St Regis brand, which was established over 100 years ago, is the high-end brand under the Starwood portfolio. Starwood also owns and operates The Luxury Collection, W, Westin, LeMeridien and Sheraton.

Chua noted the RM1.2 billion investment is entirely private sector-driven and it is one of the largest private sector initiatives under the ETP. With a positive contribution towards economic activities expected until 2014, the project’s economic activities and its multiplier effects will contribute towards achieving an average 6% GDP growth rate under the 10th Malaysia Plan.

The investment also represents 3% of the funding required for Tourism EPP 12 of “Improving rate, mix and quality of hotels”. Total funding required for the tourism sector under the ETP will be RM39.9 billion to construct the estimated incremental rooms required by 2020, with RM38.7 billion from the private sector.

“[It is] in line with the ETP to increase tourism and tourism spending by attracting a higher-yield segment as well as increasing per capita incomes of the large employment base in the tourism sector,” she said.

St Regis Kuala Lumpur is expected to create a total of 6,200 jobs in the design, construction and hospitality industries.

In line with the objective of promoting KL as a global/regional headquarters location and attracting 100 multinational companies, Starwood has set up an office in Kuala Lumpur as its Southeast Asia regional office.

The St Regis KL’s interior designers have also committed to set up their regional headquarters in KL to serve Asia.

Chua believes that these moves can help attract local and foreign talents, spur greater economic activity, as well as generate demand for additional high-value employment.
