Gamuda Land to build RM150mil hotel in Gamuda Cove

CEO Chu said the hotel will be managed by Dusit Hotels and Resorts.

PETALING JAYA: Gamuda Bhd’s property division Gamuda Land has allocated an investment of up to RM150mil to develop a mid-scale lifestyle hotel at Gamuda Cove slated to be opened in the first quarter of 2026.

Gamuda Land chief executive officer (CEO) Chu Wai Lune said the hotel will be managed by Dusit Hotels and Resorts, the hotel arm of Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies.

“The hotel will have 280 rooms and will be operating under Dusit’s distinctive locally focused lifestyle brand, Asai Hotels, which promises to uniquely link curious travellers with authentic local experiences.

“Asai Gamuda Cove hotel will enjoy the distinction of being the first hotel signed under Dusit’s expanded ‘Asai Tropical’ model, specifically tailored for properties located in areas of outstanding natural beauty,” he told reporters after signing the hotel management agreement in conjunction with the ground breaking ceremony in Sepang yesterday.

The event was also witnessed by the Thai ambassador to Malaysia Lada Phumas.

Chu said expanding into the hotel line was part of the company’s strategy to complete its ecosystem by providing a new service to its township.

Gamuda Land chief commercial officer Eusoffe Chua said Gamuda Cove is a mindfully planned township development offering exciting eco-friendly tourism activities including adventure and water parks.

“We are thrilled to align with Dusit, a strategic partner that shares our unwavering commitment to creating interconnected spaces where everyone can seamlessly integrate their living, working and recreational experiences,” Chua said.

Meanwhile, Malaysian Investment Development Authority CEO Datuk Arham Abdul Rahman said in a statement that Gamuda Land’s launch of Asai Gamuda Cove marked its first hotel project in collaboration with Dusit International in Selangor’s vibrant hospitality scene.

“This decision stands as a testament to the growing positive business sentiment among investors in Malaysia’s tourism sector,” he added. — Bernama
