Anantara to arrive in Malaysia with Destination deal
Under the terms of the deal, Minor and DRH will work together to “identify a suitable location to co-develop a luxury resort and residences under the… Anantara brand”.
DRH is part of the Malaysian government’s investment arm, Khazanah Nasional Berhad.
“Following our first hotel management project in Malaysia undertaken in 2013, now operating as Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort, we are proud to announce our first investment plan in the country under our core luxury Anantara brand,” said Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotel Group.
“We intend to have this resort become the showcase of the best that Anantara and Malaysia have to offer.”
Anantara currently operates 35 hotels and resorts in 10 countries across Asia, the Middle East, Indian Ocean and Africa. It also has four new properties in the pipeline, with the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, Anantara Guiyang Resort & Spa and Anantara Tangalle Peace Haven Resort & Spa in Sri Lanka all opening in 2015 and Anantara Qiandao Lake Resort & Spa in China launching in 2016.
