Dusit Hotels and Resorts signs first hotel in Malaysia

Dusit Hotels and Resorts has signed an agreement with Malaysia’s property developer, Gamuda Land, to manage ASAI Gamuda Cove – Dusit’s first hotel in Malaysia and the first hotel development by Gamuda Land.

Slated to open in 1Q2026, the hotel is situated next to the Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands within Gamuda Cove. Gamuda Cove will also include residential and commercial areas to complement a range of eco-friendly tourism attractions, such as the SplashMania Waterpark and Discovery Park, all designed with sustainability and a low carbon footprint in mind.

ASAI Gamuda Cove is just 20 minutes away by car to Kuala Lumpur airport, and the city centre can be reached in just 40 minutes.

In addition, Gamuda Cove’s e-tram network – the first of its kind in Malaysia – will seamlessly link guests to hotspots within the development, helping to limit the use of motorised vehicles and reduce carbon footprint. The hotel will organise regular community-based activities and events to give guests a taste of local culture and experiences while highlighting the importance of responsible tourism.

“In our collaboration with Dusit, we are thrilled to align with a strategic partner that shares our unwavering commitment to creating interconnected spaces where everyone can seamlessly integrate their living, working and recreational experiences,” said Eusoffe Chua, chief commercial officer, Gamuda Land.

Gilles Cretallaz, chief operating officer, Dusit International, remarked: “With its stunning location and sustainable credentials, Gamuda Cove perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the ASAI brand, and we look forward to delivering a unique and unforgettable hotel experience that immerses guests in the diverse cultural tapestry of Malaysia and the natural beauty of the wetlands, all while contributing enduring value to our esteemed partners and the community we serve.”
