Oakwood to debut in Malaysia this year
Serviced residence operator Oakwood Asia Pacific is set to enter the Malaysian market in September 2016 after a confirmed partnership with developer Plenitude Berhad signed yesterday.
The 252-unit Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur will be located in the Malaysian capital’s Ampang district and is catered for both business and leisure travellers.
Facilities include a swimming pool, children’s wading pool, gym, restaurant, various meeting rooms and a grand ballroom. High-speed internet connection and 24-hour concierge and front desk services will also be available.
According to Elsie Chua, chairman of Plenitude Berhad’s board, 50 million ringgit (US$12.3 million) has been invested for the renovation and upgrading of the Oakwood property, which takes over the space formerly occupied by The Nomad Sucasa Kuala Lumpur.
Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur is the operator’s 28th Oakwood-branded property across 16 cities in Asia.
