Shangri-La to open Hotel Jen Kuala Lumpur in 2019

Hotel Jen

Shangri-La International Hotel Management and Concorde Arch are planning to develop the first Hotel Jen in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Opening in 2019, Hotel Jen Kuala Lumpur is the second Hotel Jen project under development in Malaysia, following the signing of Hotel Jen Kota Kinabalu in Borneo in September 2015. 

Concorde Arch initially acquired the land for building its corporate office but opted instead to use the space for a new-build hotel. The property is about half-a-mile from the city's Petronas Twin Towers and is expected to attract both business and leisure travelers.   

“The announcement of Hotel Jen Kuala Lumpur reinforces our interest and expansion in Malaysia, in the country’s capital city, where we will now increase the group’s presence with our third hotel and newest brand Hotel Jen," Greg Dogan, president and CEO of Shangri-La, said in a statement.
