IHG Partners Warisan City to Offer Holiday Inn Sepang

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has signed a management agreement with Warisan City Development Sdn Bhd for a new-build Holiday Inn in Sepang. Dubbed Holiday Inn Sepang, Selangor, it is located in Kota Warisan, a mere 15-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

“We are excited for the group to be partnering IHG to build the Holiday Inn Sepang. We are confident that the hotel will provide guests with the brand promise of enjoyable travel for everyone. Whether for a single night while passing through the airport, or for an extended visit to the area for business or pleasure,” said Warisan City Development Director Low Joo Soon in a press release on 2 July 2019.


The highlights of Holiday Inn Sepang


The hotel is set to open in 2021 and will have 250 rooms. It will feature a daytime lounge that can transform into a cocktail bar come nightfall. The property will also host a modern restaurant, gym and business corner.


“The latest addition to our Malaysia portfolio, Holiday Inn Sepang will provide a friendly, affordable and dependable hotel experience to travellers passing through the area. Within close proximity of a major international airport, a large industrial district, a university, and a renown racing circuit, the hotel is perfectly positioned for both business and leisure visitors,” said the Vice-president of SEA & Korea development of IHG Serena Lim.


Becoming the key commercial hub of Greater Kuala Lumpur


The hotel will also have four state-of-the-art meeting rooms. The largest meeting room will be a ballroom for up to 400 people. There is also an event space that opens out to the hotel’s pool area where receptions can be held.


Besides being near to KLIA, IHG said the Sepang area is also growing as a key commercial hub of Greater Kuala Lumpur.


It added that motorsport enthusiasts can also visit the nearby Sepang International Circuit. There are also numerous businesses and industrial zones nearby that leverage their connectivity via KLIA. In 2020, E-commerce giant Alibaba will launch the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) within the airport compound, serving as a regional logistics hub for SMEs.


The company is also eyeing the potential of Xiamen University Malaysia and footfall in Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA, which are all a short drive from the hotel.


IHG other brands


IHG has five hotels operating across three brands in Malaysia, including Intercontinental, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express, with a further 10 in the development pipeline due to open within the next five years.
