such a vibrant destination – quite fitting as the latest location
for a Park Regis property to launch. We are very excited about the
addition of this property as this represents a strategic
geographic location for our hotel network in the region,
particularly considering the soon to open Park Regis hotels in
Singapore and Dubai,” said said StayWell’s Chief Executive
Officer, Mr Simon Wan. “In addition to Park Regis
Kuala Lumpur, we are currently in the process of finalising
arrangements for additional hotels in Asia and the Middle East.
The expansion of StayWell Hospitality Group’s portfolio of
properties has certainly picked up pace over the last 9 months and
I have no doubt we’ll soon be a significant player in the market –
particularly in the Asia Pacific region.”

of 24 properties which includes locations in Australian capital
cities - Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Hobart - as well as
regional areas such as Launceston, Hunter Valley, Blue Mountains,
