MINES City Hotel Bhd (MCHB) and KenAir Leisure Sdn Bhd expect to garner RM48mil in revenue from the 10,000 international medical tourists who will be in Malaysia for the holistic wellness packages.
Country Heights Health Tourism Sdn Bhd (CHHT) executive chairman Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew said the wellness packages aimed to attract international tourists to experience the preventive and proactive health screening services that Malaysia had to offer.
Lee said the company had invested about RM10mil in its first screening centre at the Palace of Golden Horses Hotel for health check-ups and was offering two packages, starting at US$2,500 to US$3,500, and US$1,500 to US$2,500.
“Our desire is not only to build this centre but to have 10 more in Malaysia. We will be having our second centre next month and the third one soon after.
“We want to market this (holistic wellness packages) to Europe as well,” he told reporters after witnessing the signing between MCHB and KenAir in Seri Kembangan on Monday.
The signing was witnessed by Health Minister Datuk Chua Soi Lek and Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Zahid Hamidi.
Lee said the company intended to provide a “totally different experience” in that medical check-ups would be conducted in a resort-like, relaxed atmosphere.
“We want to provide a benchmark for medical check-ups,” he added. – Bernama
