InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a
deal to expand its Hotel Indigo brand to
Kuala Lumpur in partnership with Techvance Properties Management.
Scheduled to open in 2023, the 180-room Hotel Indigo
Kuala Lumpur on the Park will be located at the base of the
picturesque Bukit Nanas, close to KL Tower and KL Forest Eco Park,
in the heart of Malaysia’s capital city.
The hotel will be within walking distance of the main financial district, shopping
at KLCC and Pavilion Mall, and a wide array of dining choices
including Jalan Alor and Petaling Street, with their endless rows
of hawker stalls.
The neighbourhood is steeped in historical charm
with heritage buildings and icons, and bounded by strips of hip
restaurants and bars along the Changkat and Chinatown areas. Kuala
Lumpur International Airport is 45km away.
The hotel will feature a a variety of F&B options,
a function room, flexible event space, an outdoor rooftop pool,
gym and work area.
Sustainability has been key in Hotel Indigo Kuala
Lumpur on the Park’s design, with environmentally friendly
methods prioritised in its planning, led by the use of reclaimed
materials from nearby sites, solar panels on its roof, and
rainwater harvesting. In line with IHG’s broader sustainability
efforts, the hotel will also be plastic straw free and will opt
for bulk amenities in all of its guest rooms.
Dato’ Edward Lau, Managing Director, Techvance
Properties Management Sdn Bhd, said, “We explored various options
for this hotel project but quickly decided on the partnership with
IHG once we were introduced to Hotel Indigo. The brand has
a philosophy and values that align to our vision for this boutique
property, one where we want to create something truly lasting and
unique. We are confident that through this partnership we will not
just meet customer expectations but exceed them.”
Across South East Asia and Korea there are
currently four Hotel Indigo hotels in Bangkok, Bali, Phuket and
Singapore and Hotel Indigo Kuala Lumpur on the Park joins a
growing pipeline for the brand including properties in Indonesia,
Thailand and Vietnam.
There are 126 Hotel Indigo hotels around the globe
with a pipeline of nearly 100 hotels set to open within the next
three to five years.
