Minor Hotel Group has announced that it has entered into a collaborative agreement with Destination Resorts & Hotels (DRH) to develop an Anantara resort in Malaysia. Both parties will work together to identify a suitable location to co-develop a luxury resort and residences under the world-renowned Anantara brand, bringing its legendary hospitality and service in the environment of Malaysia’s rich cultural and architectural diversities.
Established in 2010 by the Malaysian Government’s investment arm, Khazanah Nasional Berhad, DRH is mandated to transform Malaysia’s tourism landscape, by delivering commercially sustainable resort destinations to address the needs of an increasingly discerning global tourism market. William E. Heinecke, Chairman and CEO of Minor International, commented, “We are delighted to make our first hotel investment in Malaysia through our partnership with Destination Resorts and Hotels, and we look forward to working with DRH for many years to come on potential investments in Malaysia.”
Tunku Dato’ Ahmad Burhanuddin, Group Managing Director of Destination Resorts and Hotels, added, “DRH’s strategic intent is to further strengthen Malaysia’s hospitality value positioning … Our shared vision will serve the right trajectory that will appeal to sophisticated global tourists.”
