InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has signed a management agreement with Warisan City Development – part of the Kienta Group of Companies – for a Holiday Inn within the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) vicinity.
Slated to open in 2021, Holiday Inn Sepang will feature 250 rooms, alongside facilities such as a cafe, restaurant, lounge-cum-cocktail bar, pool, restaurant, gym and business corner.
The hotel’s “substantial” events capabilities will include four state-of-the-art meeting rooms, including a ballroom that can host banquets of up to 400 people. The property will also feature an event space that opens out to the hotel’s pool area where receptions can be held.
The new-build will be located in Kota Warisan, a 15-minute drive from the airport’s main terminal. Also in the vicinity is the Xiamen University Malaysia, Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA and the Sepang International Circuit. In 2020, E-commerce giant Alibaba will also be launching the Digital Free Trade Zone within the airport compound, serving as a regional logistics hub for SMEs.
IHG has five hotels operating across three brands in Malaysia, including: InterContinental, Holiday Inn, and Holiday Inn Express, with a further 10 in the development pipeline due to open within the next five years.
