Minor Hotel Group, a hotel owner, operator and investor, currently with a portfolio of over 120 hotels and resorts in 22 countries across Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Europe, South America, Africa and the Indian Ocean, has entered into a collaboration agreement with Destination Resorts & Hotels (DRH) to develop an Anantara resort in Malaysia.

 Under the collaboration agreement, both parties will identify a suitable location to co-develop a luxury resort and residences under the Anantara brand.

Established in 2010 by the Malaysian Government’s investment arm, Khazanah Nasional Berhad, DRH is mandated to transform Malaysia’s tourism landscape, by delivering commercially sustainable resort destinations to address the needs of an increasingly discerning global tourism market.

Dillip Rajakarier, Group COO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotel Group, said, “Following our first hotel management project in Malaysia undertaken in 2013, now operating as Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort, we are proud to announce our first investment plan in the country under our core luxury Anantara brand. We intend to have this resort become the showcase of the best that Anantara and Malaysia have to offer.”

Tunku Dato’ Ahmad Burhanuddin, Group Managing Director of Destination Resorts and Hotels, added “DRH’s strategic intent is to further strengthen Malaysia’s hospitality value positioning. The collaboration, coupled with Anantara’s management experience and renowned reputation, clearly deepens our breadth in the luxury destination segment. Our shared vision will serve the right trajectory that will appeal to sophisticated global tourists.”
