Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has signed an agreement with Themed Attractions and Resorts (TAR), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad - the investment holding arm of the Government of Malaysia - to open, and operate Traders Hotel, Puteri Harbour, Iskandar, Malaysia. This marks the first international hotel in the newly developed area of Nusajaya, Malaysia, and the only hotel to be associated with Malaysia's soon-to-be-built first family indoor theme park.

Set to open in 2012, the four-storey 292-room Traders Hotel will be located in the heart of Nusajaya, one of the five flagship zones in Iskandar Malaysia, in the waterfront precinct and will form part of an integrated complex that comprises an indoor theme park, a family entertainment centre and a 100,000-square-foot retail centre.

 Puteri Harbour will also house a water transport terminal and three marinas in the near future. The hotel will be a 15-minute drive from the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link, the bridge that connects Singapore and Johor, Malaysia; approximately a 35-minute drive from Senai International Airport; and a 3-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur.

The hotel guestrooms at Traders Hotel, Puteri Harbour, Iskandar, Malaysia will be a minimum of 36 square metres, with a selection of themed rooms. Food and beverage outlets will include an all-day dining restaurant, a lobby lounge, a sky lounge and a bar. A 620-square-metre ballroom and a range of function rooms suited for small to large events will cater to Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions (MICE) guests. Recreational facilities such as a rooftop swimming pool, a health club, and a rooftop garden will also be available.

The 60,000-square-foot indoor theme park will feature world-renowned and popular children's characters in three main areas: Hello Kitty Town, showcasing Hello Kitty and friends by Sanrio; the Little Big Club featuring HIT Entertainment's Thomas and Friends, Barney, Bob the Builder, Pingu and Angelina Ballerina; and a themed family restaurant by popular local cartoonist, Lat.

A new development area west of Johor Bahru, Nusajaya comprises over 10,000 hectares and is envisioned as a fully integrated city with a world-class environment for business, living and leisure.
