THONG Fook Group wholly-owned Weil Resources has opened its first flagship hotel in Malaysia.
Weil Hotel is set in the heart of Ipoh, a transit hub where local and international tourists, business travellers as well as families travelling up north, east-west and down south through Ipoh may stop at.
With its strategic location, Weil Hotel affords its guests good connectivity as the hotel is well-connected by a transportation network to attract inbound travellers within Malaysia and Asia.
Weil Resources Sdn Bhd executive director Liew Yu-Wei said the hotel was the group’s first foray into the hospitality industry.
“We have been in Malaysia since 1945 via the groundnut Pagoda brand, and have diversified our business into the plastic, fast-moving consumer goods, and wellness industry.
“With the opening of Weil Hotel, we have further extended our presence in Perak, Malaysia and Asia,” he said.
Liew added that they aim to be the preferred hotel in Ipoh, not just by their fittings and furnishings but also their people.
“We have put emphasis on the décor to deliver sophistication, warmth and comfort, while implementing training programmes to continuously develop our employees to become exemplary service professionals,” he said.
The hotel consists of 313 units of rooms and suites.
Travellers will also enjoy specially hand-picked and designed bedding, room furnishings and fittings that offer immense comfort to travellers.
Other facilities include a gymnasium and spa (to be open soon), the rooftop infinity pool with a view of Ipoh’s landscape and iconic limestone hills, as well as a wide variety of dining outlets.
Guests can choose from a variety of gastronomic delights which include Tiffin, an all-day dining restaurant that serves a wide range of both local and international cuisine, Yuk Sou Hin Chinese Restaurant serving contemporary Cantonese cuisine, Tea Lounge with a wide selection of teas, snacks and English tea-time delights and The Deck, a rooftop gastro bar with a spectacular view of the city.
The hotel is ideal for hosting corporate and private banquets as there are two levels of functional space, consisting of the ballroom that can house up to 900 guests, a foyer and terrace space, three meeting rooms, and the conference centre, which can cater to a capacity of up to 600 guests.
In addition, Weil spoils its guests with a convenient access link to its neighbour, Ipoh Parade shopping centre, from the hotel lobby.
