PETALING JAYA (March 3): Tropicana Corp Bhd and the Langkawi Municipal Council Tourism City hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for a new rest and recreation (R&R) centre in Pantai Kok, Langkawi on Wednesday (March 2).

The RM2.5 million R&R centre project will sit on a 0.49-acre parcel land donated by Tropicana to the Langkawi authorities. The project is slated for completion by 3Q22. It will feature commercial lots, washroom, surau and more than 70 parking bays for cars, motorcycles and bicycles.

“Today’s groundbreaking marked another milestone for Tropicana, signifying its commitment to building a sustainable and vibrant township in Langkawi. The Pantai Kok R&R centre stands at the threshold of Tropicana’s upcoming development in the area, and we are proud to be the partner of Majlis Perbandaran Langkawi Bandaraya Pelancongan as we work hand-in-hand to uplift the community. 

“This is in line with Tropicana Foundation’s core focus on Redefining the Art of Caring, as well as Tropicana’s recognised role as a community builder,” said Tropicana’s executive director (project) Khoo Thian Shyang in a press statement.

The Pantai Kok R&R centre complements Tropicana’s upcoming Pantai Kok project, a 44.61-acre integrated mixed development. 

It is part of the developer’s 127.84-acre landbank in Langkawi, with parcels in Tanjung Rhu, Pulau Rebak Kecil and Bukit Mali. Its latest homes in Tropicana Cenang comprise modern seaview serviced suites across 5.28 acres on the Pantai Cenang beachfront.
