Shangri-La Signs Hotel Jen in Kota Kinabalu

Shangri-La has unveiled plans to expand its Hotel Jen brand to Borneo.

 Scheduled to open in 2018, Hotel Jen Kota Kinabalu will be located in PacifiCity, an integrated shopping, entertainment and lifestyle hub located along the coastal highway in Kota Kinabalu, the gateway city to Sabah and wider Borneo.

 Mr. KP Kuok, Executive Director of Pacific Sanctuary Holdings Sdn Bhd, said, Tourism has provided Sabahans from all walks of life opportunities to find fulfilling employment and to develop professional careers. When counting indirect jobs, the industry is one of the biggest employers here. This is a significant reason why we decided to invest in hotels and resorts in Sabah. They bring long-lasting employment and benefits to the community.

PacifiCity is a shopping, entertainment and lifestyle hub located in Likas Bay, an area described as the new city centre of Kota Kinabalu. The development is opposite Sabah Trade Centre and near the new Sabah International Convention Centre currently under construction.

Located on top of PacifiCitys lifestyle mall, Hotel Jen Kota Kinabalu will connect guests to shopping, dining and entertainment. Its prominent position offers views of the South China Sea, coastal wetlands and Mount Kinabalu.

Hotel Jen Kota Kinabalu will comprise twin towers, drawing its design inspiration from the surrounding environment and local culture. The hotel will also boast resort-standard recreation and fitness facilities that are shared with the PacifiCity Club.

Mr. Greg Dogan, president and CEO of Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, said: The announcement of Hotel Jen Kota Kinabalu is extremely important for our organisation. Weve built a strong presence in Kota Kinabalu and throughout Malaysia, and are delighted the newest brand in our portfolio reinforces our commitment to Sabah, Borneo and beyond.
