CRSC, Aman Resorts plan RM200mil Belum resort

IPOH: The CRSC group and Aman Resorts International are investing a total of RM200mil to develop an eco-tourism and island resort on Pulau Besar in Tasik Temenggor, Belum forest reserve.

Aman Resorts executive director Greg Sirois said the investment, to be spread over four phases, would include the construction of a RM60mil six-star hotel.

“The hotel design is still being developed but construction will begin as soon as approval is obtained,” he said after the signing of the project agreement between CRSC and Belum Island Resort Sdn Bhd here yesterday.

The hotel is due for completion next year.

The signing ceremony was witnessed by Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Tajol Rosli Ghazali. Also present were Belum Island Resort chairman Datuk Mohamad Yusoff Kassim and CRSC group deputy chairman Datuk Lawrence Low.

Aman Resorts owns and manages 18 small luxury resorts worldwide.

To a question, Sirois said the resort would be eco-friendly and appeal to nature lovers.

“We understand that Tasik Temenggor is an ecologically sensitive area and we will preserve the island's pristine beauty,'' he said.

Earlier, Mohamad Yusoff said some 2,000ha would be developed for the project.

“Development of phase one will cover some 400ha,” he said, adding that the project would be a boon to the state's economic development.

Belum Island Resort is a subsidiary of CRSC group, which is a local hotelier group based in Malacca.
