Thailand's Minor Hotels Group has signed a deal
with KTI Property to expand its rapidly growing Avani Hotels and Resorts
brand to Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, Malaysia.
Scheduled to launch in the fourth quarter of
2021, the new-build Avani Kota Kinabalu Hotel will be just a
20-minute drive from Kota Kinabalu International Airport, one of
the busiest airports in Malaysia with international flights from
Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, as well as China.
As part of a mixed
use development with retail, office, and condominium complex,
guests will find a wide range of dining and entertainment options
just steps away in the heart of Sabahís capital on Jalan Lintas.
The 378-room Avani Kota Kinabalu will feature an all-day dining restaurant and a rooftop pool
and bar, as well as 855 square metres of meeting space.
Alejandro Bernabť, Vice
President of Operations for Avani Hotels & Resorts said, "We are
excited to expand our Malaysia portfolio with this second
property, and especially to have it in Kota Kinabalu. KK is a
well-known business and leisure destination, and Avani Kota
Kinabalu Hotel will put guests in the centre of everything.Ē
Avani currently operates 23 hotels and resorts
in 15 countries, including one in Malaysia, and has 13 new hotels
in the pipeline.
