Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts
has signed a management agreement with Maxz Universal Development Group for a new
development on Sentosa Island, Singapore. The resort is scheduled to open at the end of 2008.
"It is an honour for us to start the New Year with such an exceptional project and to have found a strong partner in
Maxz Universal Development Group," declared Jean Gabriel Pérès, President & CEO Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts,
after the signing of the agreement. "The future hotel on Sentosa will further enhance our portfolio and blends in
perfectly with our strategic expansion plans in Asia."
"We decided in favour of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts because it enjoys a reliable reputation as a hotel operator in so
many markets and is considered as an innovative newcomer in the Asian hotel landscape," explained Seeto
Keong, CEO of the Maxz Universal Development Group. "We are confident that its expertise, service and quality standards,
combined with its typically Swiss values, will fully satisfy the requirements of the market."
The project consists firstly of an existing historical building built in the colonial style around 1940, which will be
completely renovated as part of a development aimed at retaining the listed façade and restoring it to its former
splendour. A new extension comprised essentially of rooms with sea view will be added to the hotel.
The Mövenpick Treasure Resort Sentosa is located on a gentle slope next to the Merlion landmark, and it will offer 186
spacious rooms and suites. The hotel will feature a Mövenpick Restaurant, a speciality restaurant and a bar.
There are also plans to create a luxury spa and leisure area
as well as modern conference and banqueting facilities.
