Carlson Hotels is expanding its portfolio of luxury Regent Hotels with The Regent Kuala Lumpur scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2011.
The Regent Kuala Lumpur will be developed by City Properties and joins a growing portfolio of Regent hotels and resorts worldwide, which includes The Regent Beijing and The Regent Shanghai. The 250-room hotel will also feature an additional 102 exclusive luxury apartments which will be branded as ‘The Regent Residences, Kuala Lumpur’.
The Regent Kuala Lumpur, together with the The Regent Residences, Kuala Lumpur, will occupy a prime city-centre location in the heart of the city’s ’Golden Triangle’, with views of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and KLCC Park, just 200 metres walking distance away.
“The development of The Regent Kuala Lumpur is an important part of our strategy to establish the flagship brand in the Carlson Hotels portfolio in every major gateway city across Asia,” said Martin Rinck, president & managing director, Carlson Hotels Worldwide – Asia Pacific.
In addition to managing Regent hotels in Beijing and Shanghai, Carlson Hotels Worldwide – Asia Pacific has five additional Regent hotels and resorts under development, including The Regent Kuala Lumpur. The Regent Maldives is scheduled to open in late 2008, while another three Regent hotels and resorts will open in 2009: The Regent Bangkok and The Regent Phuket Cape Panwa in Thailand, together with the The Regent Manila Bay in the Philippines.
