Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed a management agreement to operate the Mövenpick Hotel & Convention Centre KLIA, a 333-room property, convention centre and wellness facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Set to open in early 2014, the hotel will be located a few minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the F1 Sepang International Circuit.

The hotel will form part of a larger 15-acre development comprising a world-class Convention and Exhibition Centre making it ideal for the increasing number of incentive groups, business and leisure travellers flying in and out of Kuala Lumpur.

Datuk Ismee Ismail, Group Managing Director and CEO of owning company Lembaga Tabung Haji, said, “The project is coming up next to the Sepang Holy Mosque and will include an expansive Hajj Complex. We teamed up with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts as it has extensive experience hosting pilgrims in the Middle East as well as meeting corporate travellers’ needs all year round. We are proud to bring such a renowned hotel company to Malaysia and this reflects the confidence of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts to collaborate with Lembaga Tabung Haji.”

The 26,000sqm Convention and Exhibition Centre will be an important business draw, featuring a 1,330sqm column free ballroom, exhibition hall, multi-function rooms and boardrooms.

Guests will have plenty of chance to unwind too, with the 250-seat all-day dining restaurant, two speciality restaurants and Lobby Lounge and Convention Centre cafe – along with the wellness centre, fitness facilities, two swimming pools and shops.

The 333 rooms will span nine floors with room sizes ranging from 30.5sqm for standard rooms, up to 203sqm for the Royal Suite.
