PETALING JAYA (March 2): Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur is targeted for a mid-2018 opening, reported NST Property.
The 209-key hotel, which targets international and local luxury travellers alike, is part of the Four Seasons Place integrated development next to the Petronas Twin Towers.
The RM3 billion, 65-storey project also features 27 serviced apartments and 242 upscale private residences on top of a 250,000 sq ft luxury mall.
The typical units of the residences have built-ups of 1,098 sq ft to 3,843 sq ft and were sold for between RM3 million and RM12 million apiece, or RM3,000 psf, while the duplexes have built-ups of 6,512 sq ft to 7,039 sq ft and were priced from over RM20 million each.
Meanwhile, the two penthouses have built-ups of 11,984 sq ft and are priced at RM38 million, though it is unknown if they have been sold.
According to NST Property, the residences were mostly taken up by Malaysians at RM3,000 psf, according to previous reports.
The hotel launch will follow a slew of key appointments announced on Feb 23 — Tom Roelens was appointed general manager, while hotel manager Vinod Narayan, executive chef Junious Dickerson, senior director of marketing Nelson Hilton, director of catering Kellie Ng and director of sales Tengku Badariah will oversee the hotel’s daily operations as it gears up for the opening.
The entire development is undertaken by Venus Assets Sdn Bhd, which is controlled by Ipoh-born Singaporean hotel magnate Ong Beng Seng, flamboyant businessman Tan Sri Syed Yusof Syed Nasir, and Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah of Selangor.
