Swiss-Belhotel International recently soft opened its very first Malaysian property, Swiss-Belhotel Kuantan.
The 27-storey, four-star property is found in the traditional fishing village of Tanjung Lumpur and is situated on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, facing the South China Sea.
As well as 366 rooms and suites, inclusive of 86 family rooms and 16 suites, the hotel houses a swimming pool, a children’s pool, a Jacuzzi, a fitness centre and Water Lounge, The Swiss-Café and the Lobby Lounge.
Ideal for corporate travellers, Swiss-Belhotel Kuantan comprises 10 state-of-the-art meeting rooms including a ballroom, which are suitable for all types of events, small and large.
Swiss-Belhotel Kuantan is the first stage of the Kuantan Waterfront Resort City (KWRC) – a 200-hectare mixed-use development and the region’s first integrated leisure, retail, dining, entertainment, hospitality and residential landmark. The development also includes a business park, a healthcare hub and a tourist resort.
Chairman and president, Swiss-Belhotel International, Gavin M. Faull explained that Malaysia had long been on the Group’s radar due to its appeal as one of Southeast Asia’s most popular destinations.
“So, the chance to plant our flag in such a culturally dynamic country, delivering our award-winning international standards, is very exciting and a key element of our broader growth strategy in Malaysia and globally,” he said.
“The fact that we are an integral part of such a transformative development as KWRC makes our entry into Malaysia even more special, and we plan to unveil new properties in other key destinations in the country including Kuala Lumpur and Melaka,” Faull further noted.
