Pan Pacific Hotels Group signed a management agreement with Gagasan Langkawi Sdn. Bhd to open the 262-room Parkroyal Langkawi Resort in 2017.
An archipelago of some 100 islands off the west coast of Malaysia, Langkawi is one of the country's popular beach destinations. Langkawi has also been awarded the UNESCO World Geopark status.
With 253 rooms and nine villas, Parkroyal Langkawi Resort will enjoy a prime beachfront location at Pantai Tengah Beach, the longest and most popular stretch of beach in Langkawi, and lie adjacent to a retail and dining complex.
Within the resort, guests will be able to indulge in a range of facilities including an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty restaurant, beach bar, spa, gymnasium, family lounge, ballroom, meeting rooms and outdoor swimming pools.
In Malaysia, Pan Pacific Hotels Group owns and/or manages three other Parkroyal properties - namely Parkroyal Kuala Lumpur, Parkroyal Serviced Suites Kuala Lumpur and Parkroyal Penang Resort.
Already home to three Parkroyal properties, Malaysia has been earmarked as one of the group's key growth markets within Asia Pacific.
The signing for Parkroyal Langkawi Resort comes at the heels of Pan Pacific Hotels Group's recent announcement of its expansion across Asia Pacific. Over the next three years, the group plans to open four more Parkroyal hotels as well as three "Pan Pacific" hotels in Australia, China, Indonesia and Myanmar.
Pan Pacific Hotels Group is a wholly-owned hotel subsidiary of Singapore-listed UOL Group Limited. Based in Singapore, Pan Pacific Hotels Group owns and/or manages close to 40 hotels, resorts and serviced suites with some 12,000 rooms including those under development in Asia, Oceania and North America. The group comprises two brands: "Pan Pacific" and Parkroyal.
