Melia Hotels International has announced the company will add two new hotels in Malaysia, the Meliá Iskandar Malaysia and INNSIDE Iskandar Johor. The move increases Meliá Hotels International’s footprint in Asia Pacific to a total of 28 properties, which includes open hotels and hotels slated to open in the near future.
The hotels will form part of an urban development that includes a large shopping center with office buildings and a convention center in Iskandar City Square, an 8.73 acre area in the southern state of Johor with close proximity to Singapore – a major driver of economic development in Malaysia. The location is less than an hour from Johor (Malaysia) and Changi (Singapore) airports and near the high-speed train station and technology park in Nusajaya.
The new five-star Meliá Iskandar Malaysia (450 rooms) and four-star INNSIDE Iskandar Johor (350 rooms) will occupy two adjacent buildings, and will also provide facilities such as restaurants, a lounge, spa, fitness center and swimming pool.
