Fairmont has signed an agreement with Cititower, a joint venture between Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company and KLCC (Holdings), a wholly-owned company of Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas), to open its first property in Malaysia.

Fairmont Kuala Lumpur is scheduled to open in 2017.

The 62-story hotel will offer 750 guestrooms along with an executive lounge and Fairmont Gold.

Fairmont Kuala Lumpur will also feature six dining outlets, as well as 2,787 square meters (30,000 square feet) of meeting and banquet space and recreational facilities including a swimming pool, health club and spa.

Fairmont Kuala Lumpur will be located in the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) development, which is home to the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, the tallest twin buildings in the world.

The project will include the hotel and one high-rise office tower, which will be connected via a six-story retail podium.

"Fairmont Kuala Lumpur is an important milestone for both our brand and for FRHI," said Jennifer Fox, president, FRHI International and Fairmont Brand. "It's a dynamic new destination for Fairmont and is our company's first hotel in Malaysia, an influential and growing market that we feel is of strategic importance. We're very excited to be entering Kuala Lumpur, a key gateway city in the region, and remain focused on expanding the Fairmont brand in Southeast Asia and other leading destinations globally."

Fairmont Kuala Lumpur will have an enviable location across from the Petronas Twin Towers, and will be connected to the Suria KLCC shopping complex.

The hotel's public areas and guestrooms will be located on the sixth story and above, offering views of the nearby KLCC Park, as well as Petronas Twin Towers.

Guests will also have easy access to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and various office complexes through a covered walkway.

The project is being designed by Pelli Clarke Architects, a group that is associated with many prestigious projects including the Petronas Twin Towers and the International Financial Centre in Hong Kong.
