First Rendezvous Hotels & Resorts International (RHRI) hotel here soon

Rendezvous Hotels & Resorts International (RHRI) will open its first hotel in Malaysia in 2009.

RHRI, a subsidiary of Singapore-based Straits Trading Ltd, was appointed by Bluestone Group Malaysia in March to manage Kuala Lumpur's newest four-star deluxe hotel. Construction is on going.

In a statement, chief executive Alan Featherby said the presence in Malaysia would build a strong alliance with the established hotel in Singapore.

Furthermore, there was no upcoming four or five-star hotel within the vicinity in the foreseeable future, he noted.

Tourism in Malaysia is expected to grow by an average 15% per annum, with corporate travel expected to generate more business in and around Kuala Lumpur city centre.

The Rendezvous Hotel is located at Cangkat Thambi Dollah within the golden triangle and will consist of two adjoining towers.

The hotel tower would offer 388 rooms on 26 floors with three additional floors devoted to hotel facilities and commercial spaces such as a recreation and spa area with a pool, gymnasium, spa, steam and sauna rooms; a restaurant and bar; business centre and a conference centre.

The adjoining tower of also 26 floors consisting of residential apartments would have its own entrance, parking, lobby, as well as health and services facilities.

The Malaysian hotel would bring the number of hotels and resorts in the Rendezvous group to 17, including 11 in Australia, two in China and one in Singapore.

The group also planned to have over 30 hotels in Asia and Australasia in the next five years.

“Our growth will be most prominent in China and Australasia with secondary areas being South East Asia, Middle East and India,” Featherby said, adding that 16 key cities in China had been identified.

Negotiations were underway with expected announcements of several new hotels for the group, he added.
