Resort vying for record as the largest Malaysian resort built on stilts

SEPANG Goldcoast wants to get into the Guinness Book of World Records in its bid to be the “Largest Malaysian Resort built on stilts”.

Following its successful entry into the Malaysia Book of Records as the “The Longest Palm Tree Shaped Resort” last year, it is now going for global recognition.

Opened a year ago, as Malaysia’s iconic tourism product to the world, Sepang Goldcoast CEO Yanki Regan said during its first anniversary celebration dinner that 120,000 guests have thus far stayed at the resort.

Regan said the resort was ideal for meetings, incentives, conference and exhibition as a destination located near KLIA.

As part of its anniversary celebration for its clients and patron, Dr Michael Burchell — the co-author of the book The Great Workplace — conducted a two-day workshop on a “Great Workplace”.

Regan added: “We hope you have learned and gained a lot during the two days about the essential elements and the best practices in making our organisation a great workplace. It’s not what you do; it’s how you do it.

“Trust, pride, credibility, camaraderie and respect for our employees is transforming Sepang Goldcoast as a great place to work.”

The Great Place to Work Institute from the United States develops the annual ranking of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For.

“A great place to work fosters employee trust in their leaders, pride in what they do, and enjoyment in the people they work with.

A great place to work answers the fundamental question: “What is the business value of creating a great workplace?”

Similarly, Sepang Goldcoast, Regan added wants to create the resort as a great place to work for its more than 500 employees.

“If you are a leader, you must communicate, make decisions, and interact with people, just as leaders in all companies do. You may carry out your job description very well. But to be a leader in a great workplace, you need to not only execute your role but also instill certain beliefs in people as you are doing it.”

The Sepang Goldcoast’s Golden Palm Tree design layout in the sea with 399 sea villas stretches out from the Sepang coastline into the sheltered waters of the Straits of Malacca.

“It is not only a great workplace for those living in and around Sepang, but is also a haven of peace, and is perfect for eco adventure, non-motorised water sports, and family-friendly fun for tourists. It’s a great place to relax and unwind.

“With minimum impact to the environment and touted to be the first eco-friendly sea-hotel in the world, Golden Palm Tree resort is located in Malacca Straits which was once a famous trading route.

“Our award winning sea villas offer luxurious, spacious accommodation that feature a fusion of tradition and modernity in its interior designs,” said Regan.
