Pan Pacific Hotels Group (PPHG) is on its way to open two more resorts in Malaysia, after seeing success at its Penang property.
Lothar Nessmann, CEO, PPHG, said: “Parkroyal is an established brand in Malaysia, where we already operate a hotel, serviced suite and resort in the key cities of Kuala Lumpur and Penang. We are expanding our portfolio of resorts in this market after seeing the popularity of Parkroyal Penang Resort, which underwent an RM55 million (US$13.3 million) transformation recently.”
Parkroyal A’Famosa Resort will open in 2019 within a resort precinct located 40 minutes from the Malacca town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The resort will offer dining options including a lobby lounge, all-day dining restaurant, Chinese specialty restaurant, club lounge and pool café.
For corporate retreats, teambuilding and other events, the resort offers seven meeting rooms, an outdoor garden, an open rooftop and a grand ballroom that can accommodate up to 700 pax.
Guests will also have access to a range of facilities and activities in the A’Famosa integrated resort, such as a water theme park, animal safari, bowling, horse riding, fishing, tennis, BBQ, in addition to a kids’ club, activity centre, outdoor swimming pools and playgrounds.
A five-minute stroll from the resort are the A’Famosa Resort Golf Course, a 27-hole international championship golf course and the Freeport A’Famosa Outlet, which offers more than 70 fashion, sports and lifestyle brands.
Opening in 2020, Parkroyal Langkawi Resort is nestled at a beachfront location on Pantai Tengah Beach, the longest stretch of beach in Langkawi.
It will offer 294 guestrooms, including premium suites complete with “sky dipping pools” and seven villas.
