Malaysia: Singapore-listed property developer Oxley Holdings will open its 207-room So Sofitel Hotel and a 590-key So Sofitel Residences in Kuala Lumpur city centre.
Opening in 2020, the residences will be managed by Accor Hotels
and will be the hospitality group's first lifestyle branded
residence in Asia. Both the hotel and residence will be part of a
large-scale mixed-use development that will include an office
tower, retail mall and two luxury hotels with residences.
"We are pleased to work with Accor Hotels and its renowned So Sofitel brand to design a hotel and a residence that will stand apart from more traditional luxury properties," said Oxley executive chairman and CEO Ching Chiat Kwong. "AccorHotels will bring almost 50 years of expertise to the project to attract a more international audience and provide a guarantee of quality," he added.
AccorHotels Asia Pacific chairman and CEO Michael Issenberg, said: "We are delighted to partner with Oxley for the development of the So Sofitel Hotel and Residences Kuala Lumpur. Oxley has a reputation for building quality projects and we are pleased to be working with them on this landmark development after we worked together on the Novotel and Ibis development on Stevens Road in Singapore."
So Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Residences will include a lounge, extensive gym with studio and yoga room, and a barbecue area overlooking the Kuala Lumpur skyline. Residents will also be able to enjoy a la carte services including housekeeping, room service, laundry services and concierge services provided by the hotel.
