TPDR general manager Dean Rossilli said the added investment is expected to further boost the resort as a favourite destination among travellers to Port Dickson.
"This investment is important for TPDR to ensure that our guests experience unparalleled world-class facilities. We hope with this upgrade we will be able to attract more international and local tourism to the area and play a pivotal role in boosting the sector," he said here on Wednesday, Aug 18.
The second phase will involve upgrading, restoration and construction of a total of 119 garden view rooms, a 3,000-square foot spa and wellness centre under Thistle's own brand called Santai Spa and some mechanical and engineering works at specific areas of the resort.
The meeting rooms will also be undergoing a makeover with new carpets, enhanced lighting and fresh wall coverings.
The Santai Spa will offer a unique combination of East and West wellness treatments, Rossilli said.
"We are also excited to introduce our own brand of spa for the Thistle Hotels chain expansion in Asia," he said.
Rossilli said in the later part of the refurbishment phase, TPDR's nine-hole golf course, a popular destination among Kuala Lumpur golfers, will also be upgraded.
"The 4,552-metre par 35 course will add to the many facilities enjoyed by guests at the hotel. Avid golfers can expect a challenging course, maintaining its signature Hole 8, a par 3 course as its signature hole with the tee stunningly set at 15 metres above sea level," he said.
"Cumulus Beach Bar, a trendy outlet in Port Dickson featuring live bands and an infinity pool, will be undergoing works during this period too."
Rossilli said the resort, the first to be opened in Asia by United Kingdom hospitality giant Thistle Hotels, will remain open during the renovation period and measures will be put in place to ensure minimal disruptions to guests.
The refurbishments are expected to be completed by mid-October 2010 while the golf course will reopen early 2011. — Bernama
