KULAI: The first business-class hotel in Senai, offering various facilities to customers during their stay, has opened its doors to the public in Taman Impian.
Impiana Hotels, Resorts and Spas group general manager Stephan Gnagi said Impiana Hotel Senai had 172 guest and clubrooms as well as six exclusive suites.
“The rooms are equipped with dedicated workspace, high-speed Internet access and modern amenities such as satellite television, electronic safe and a mini bar,” he said.
He added that the hotel was a 10-minute drive from Senai International Airport.
“The hotel is also close to Johor Premium Outlets, several award-winning golf courses and Legoland Malaysia Resort.
“It is an ideal meeting point for those who wish to have meetings with their business partners from Singapore,” he said at the official opening ceremony, which was attended by Johor Tourism, Trade and Consumerism committee chairman Datuk Tee Siew Kiong.
Gnagi said the hotel also had a club lounge, three restaurants, a grand ballroom, three meeting rooms, a gymnasium, reflexology treatments and meeting facilities that could accommodate up to 400 people as well as Impiana’s signature infinity swimming pool.
“We brought Impiana’s impeccable standards and delightful services to Johor and look forward to introduce our brand here,” he said.
He added that Impiana Hotel was set to capitalise on Iskandar Malaysia’s robust economic growth by fulfilling the needs for a business-class hotel to operate in Senai.
“The southernmost region has continuously been one of the biggest economic contributors to the country and the demand for quality hospitality services has increased,” he said.
Meanwhile KCC Group of Companies executive director Ker Soon Yong said the expansion of KCC Group’s portfolio to include a hospitality arm had been planned since four years ago, and the Impiana Hotels & Resorts Management Sdn Bhd had been involved right from the start.
“We would like to thank all parties who worked with us in the past two years,” he said adding that there were plans to open more KCC hotels in future.
