PETALING JAYA: MK Land Holdings Bhd is targeting to achieve RM52mil in revenue from its hotels and resorts division for the year ending June 30 (FY10).
MK Land Hotels & Resorts senior general manager Annuar Yang Ghazali said that as the division was achieving growth even during the current economic crisis, he believed once the economy improved, the division would chart higher sales.
“Our hotels and resorts located in Langkawi and Perak have so far been receiving good response from tourists especially from the Middle East, Asean and Asia,” he said.
For example, about 80% of the guests at the group’s Langkawi Lagoon Resort comprised foreign tourists, mainly from the Middle East, he said.
Annuar was speaking yesterday after the memorandum of understanding (MOU) signing between MK Land and Emkay Group with Kelab Sukan, Social dan Kebajikan Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (KSSKA).
Under the MOU, KSSKA members would be given special rates to visit, stay and enjoy the facilities at the resorts and hotels under MK Land and Emkay Group.
The resorts involved are Langkawi Lagoon Resort, Bukit Merah Lake Town Resort and Taiping Resort in Taiping and Belum Rainforest Resort in Banding Island, Gerik.
MK Land and Emkay Group executive chairman Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal Abu Bakar said the MOU showed the beginning of a relationship and collaboration between the corporate body and the army.
“We would also like to show our deep appreciation to the army for its contribution to maintaining the peace and safety of the country. The MOU will boost domestic tourism besides benefiting about 120,000 KSSKA members,” he said.
