Jakarta-headquartered Archipelago International has expanded its reach in Asia with the signing of a 700-room management contract in Port Dickson under its Quest Hotel brand.
The project, scheduled to open in mid-2019, will also feature the city’s largest convention centre and a 30,000m2 waterpark.
John Flood, Archipelago International’s president and CEO, said: “Over the past few years, our team has been preparing for growth throughout Asia, the Middle East, and Cuba. Quest being a branded hotel, we will attract 20 per cent more business than a non-branded hotel. When you mix in the country’s largest waterpark, the hotel will surely attract a lion’s share of travellers and that’s always great news for investors. This project further expands the group’s presence as a leading international travel company.”
The new Quest property and convention facility are also part of a much bigger masterplan for the Malaysia Vision Valley, where a comprehensive development plan to identify economic and social drivers for growth, as well as the protection of the environment, will be developed.
Currently, Archipelago International holds Indonesia’s largest portfolio of over 130 hotels (17,000 rooms) with another 100 new properties under development across Indonesia, Philippines, and Malaysia.
