Best Western to open Hotel in Kota Kinabalu

Best Western is extending its brand’s reach into East Malaysia with Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel, located in the heart of Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah.

The hotel will soon open with 107 newly renovated, modern guestrooms and will turn the key on 18 more before the end of the year. The room tally is expected to reach 137 in 2008.

Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel is situated in the capital’s downtown, and within walking distance of major shopping malls, offices and banks, restaurants and tourist attractions.

“Kota Kinabalu is one of Malaysia’s fastest growing resort destinations due to its proximity to five tropical islands and the world renowned 4,095-meter Mount Kinabalu with its pristine rainforest,” said Best Western Vice President International Operations Asia, Glenn de Souza.

Kota Kinabalu is home to Malaysia’s second busiest airport and is considered the gateway to Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. It serves flights from Kuala Lumpur and international markets including Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, Manila, Bangkok, Taipei, Brunei and Australia.

“Kota Kinabalu welcomed 3 million visitors in 2006 and expects the arrival figure to top 5 million by the end of 2010,” Mr de Souza said. “The addition of the Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel aims to support the rising number of travelers while meeting our tourist arrival-volume targets.”

The Best Western Kinabalu Daya Hotel’s spacious rooms are all wired for high-speed internet connections. Wireless access is also available in the rooms as well as in public areas.

Two function rooms are capable of hosting 80 persons each, and for dining, Hunter’s offers breakfast and lunch before transforming into a Karaoke-pub in the evening. Hunter’s Terrace offers a cozy outdoor venue for casual dining and wining.:lol:

What a wierd name, someone must have drained out their collective creative juices to have settled on that! The name doesn't lift up the project. Off the top of my head, words like Mile, Fair, Boulevard, Alley, Drive would perhaps have conjoured up a more fitting image...

Make MM2H a succes: Hajiji

Kota Kinabalu: Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Hajiji Mohd Noor hoped those involved in the promotion of the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) will take the initiative to ensure the programme's success.

He said the MM2H programme - previously known as the Silver-Haired Programme - was to generate income for the State as it invites foreigners, particularly retirees to come and stay in Sabah.

"We support the programme which I believe will be able to contribute to the income of the State," he said after launching the Shareda Property Exhibition (PropEX07) at the Kota Kinabalu Sports Complex here on behalf of Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

Asked about a case involving a Dutch couple who faced difficulties when they wanted to take up the MM2H programme recently, he said it could be due to some misunderstanding.

"We don't actually know what was the reason and we are checking it.

However, we hope those involved (in the programme) will provide good and friendly treatment, especially to those coming from abroad," he said.

Hajiji, nonetheless, said the incident was an insolated case.

On the contention that the MM2H would affect locals intending to buy houses as prices would inevitably go up, he said this was not the case because the MM2H only targets the high-end market and not those in the lower income bracket.

Towards this end, he assured the Government's commitment to providing sufficient low-cost houses to the people with about 14,000 units being built and another 16,000 units coming up to reach the targeted 32,000 units in Sabah.

Meanwhile, Sabah Housing and Real Estate Developers Association (Shareda) President Kong Kwok Wah called on the Government to simplify the procedures for foreigners taking up the MM2H programme.

"We hope the Government will seriously consider the possibility of granting automatic approval to those who have purchased property worth more than RM250,000," he said.

He said about 300 units of houses were sold to foreigners in Sabah but only a small portion of them were given the privilege under the MM2H programme.

Among them are those from Europe, England, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea and China whose numbers are increasing, he said.

Those participating in the programme would among others be given a special 10-year visa to live in the country and among the requirements, according to Kong, was for them to place a certain amount of money in the local bank and withdraw only a certain amount each year.

"They don't even have to stay here," said Kong.

Simplifying the procedures, he believed, would attract more foreigners to take up the programme, hence bringing in more revenue to the State.

In his speech, based on the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA) figures, he said Malaysia is ranked ninth in the list of best sites for expatriate retirement.

"Given that Malaysia's ranking was determined by foreign researchers, I see very good reason for developers in Sabah to seriously look at this market segment."

According to recent reports, the Government wants to attract RM70 billion worth of foreign investments in its property market over the next 10 years and is working on a new set of incentives.

Towards this end, he said he always believed Sabah ranks way above many other states in the country as a desirable destination for foreigners to acquire second homes.

For starters, he said properties in Sabah are relatively cheaper than in Penang, Kuala Lumpur or even Melaka.

Having a large tract of hinterland, a small population that translates into peace, tranquility and less congestion coupled with the modern amenities and world class tourist attractions and holiday destinations, Sabah is a dream place for holiday homes, he said.

Kong agreed with the PropEX07 organising chairman, Francis Goh who is also Shareda MM2H coordinator, that they need to work hard to attract 10,000 foreigners to stay in Sabah under the MM2H programme.

If each buys a property worth RM650,000, it may bring in RM6.5 billion worth of sales and if each spends an average of RM8,500 per month it would add up to RM1 billion in annual revenue for Sabah, he said.

Kong said the challenge was coordination between the government departments and the private sector, from developers to agents, to work together to ensure that Sabah does not miss out on the opportunities.

"We need to have greater coordinated promotion efforts. We need to have the differences in preferences of potential investors or retirees from Japan, Korea, Middle East or Europe," he said.

Kong reiterated Shareda's optimism that the proposed Sabah Development Corridor expected to be launched by the Prime Minister before end of this year and the completion of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport upgrading plus the good State 2008 Budget announced by the Chief Minister would create excitement for the property development market for the next few years in Sabah.

The Shareda PropEX07 will be on from 10am until 9.30pm daily and end on Nov 25:lol:

nice shots.;) KK looks more well planned than Kuching imo.
If you are talking about the grid style urban planning of CBDs in Sabah towns, i think it is more likely because that towns like Kota Kinabalu ,Sandakan and Tawau were rebuilt after the war...
