A SKYBAR that offers a panoramic view, a Japanese hot spring-inspired spa with seven pools and a ballroom that fits 1,800 people are some of the exciting features at a new hotel in Klang.

The four-star KSL Esplanade Hotel at Bandar Bestari in Klang, Selangor, also boasts a children’s pool designed to resemble a mini water park with a playhouse, water squirts and a tube slide.

The hotel is connected to a shopping mall and has a 24-hour front desk, daily housekeeping, in-room WiFi, safe deposit box and complimentary parking.

Besides an all-day dining coffeehouse, there is also a gym.

The grand opening ceremony of the 403-room hotel was attended by KSL Holdings Berhad director Khoo Kheng Ghiap, assistant operations manager Jeff Gan and Khoo Soon Lee Realty human resources manager Kee Ooi Nin.

An acrobatic lion dance performance entertained guests before they were given a tour of the hotel.

Khoo said, “The first skybar in Klang is here in this hotel where we plan to serve Japanese tapas.

“However, the ballroom is our jewel. We can see it becoming a popular venue for wedding receptions.”

He said a lot of planning had gone into designing the spa including transporting water from a hot spring in Bemban, Melaka.

Another feature to help guests unwind and relax is the nearby park located beside Sungai Sijangkang.

“We have landscaped the riverside and the LED tunnel is an ideal spot for selfies.

“In fact, when we acquired the land in 2011 and saw the beauty of the river, we decided to make it the centrepiece for our development. Our commercial and prime residential units have been centred around this feature,” added Khoo.

The hotel is a project of KSL which has a core business in property development, management and investment in Johor.

Established in 1982, the company was listed on the main board of Bursa Malaysia in February 2002.

It is the parent company of Khoo Soon Lee Realty Sdn Bhd, the subsidiary responsible for planning and developing Canary Garden, an integrated development in the same township.

“The hotel, in addition to the shopping mall, are value-added features,” he said.

“These two features are expected to progress in tandem with the township’s development, of which three-quarters have yet to be completed.

“Out of the 180.49ha, we have only used 40.46ha.”

The group’s Klang project is its first stepping stone in venturing to other parts of the country.

“Our concentration is currently in Johor but we are now in the process of acquiring land in other parts of the country.

“At present, up to 30% of our land acquisition activities are in Klang Valley. In Kuala Lumpur, for example, we have a 10-storey luxury project at Jalan Madge in Taman U Thant,” said Khoo.
