Date: March 2019

Location: Royal Town of Klang, 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Name: The Wyndham Acmar Klang – opening 3rd Qtr. 2019

No. of Keys: 488

Owner: The property is being built by the Acmar Group of Companies and will be managed by Wyndham. The group currently has four properties in Malaysia, operating under Days Inn and Ramada brands.

The Wyndham Acmar Klang will become the first international upscale hotel in this strategically important city. Located close to three major national highways, the hotel is 40 minutes from KLIA.

“As the commercial gateway to Malaysia and a highly connected urban centre, Klang is at the core of Malaysia’s economic success. The entire Klang Valley area is enjoying tremendous growth making this an excellent opportunity to introduce a world-class international upscale hotel to the Royal Town of Klang.” said Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South East Asia and Pacific Rim.

“Wyndham Acmar Klang is a truly impressive property, providing spacious accommodation and every service guests could desire, all supported by Malaysia’s timeless values of hospitality. It will also become a major local focal point for conferences and events, providing companies with the facilities they need to create important events, without having to go to Kuala Lumpur.

I look forward to working with Wyndham and creating a new landmark in Klang,” added Dato’ Steven Tee, Group Managing Director, Acmar Group of Companies.

Wyndham Acmar Klang will offer guests a wealth of international amenities in addition to its hallmark welcoming hospitality. The upscale hotel will offer guestrooms across two wings – from Deluxe Rooms with plush furnishings and working areas to 188 stylish suites offering added space for guests to unwind in luxury.

Guests staying in the suites can also make use of the Executive Lounge which provides an array of exclusive amenities including private check-in, daily breakfast and all-day drinks and snacks.

This new-build hotel will become a major hub for meetings and events, with a luxurious Grand Ballroom capable of hosting the most impressive occasions including corporate conferences, award ceremonies and lavish weddings seating up to 2,200 guests.

A selection of 11 other flexible spaces provides options for every type of event, including business meetings, exhibitions and product launches.

The hotel will have a designer outdoor pool, a spa, fitness centre, shop in a choice of retail outlets, with specialty Japanese and Chinese restaurants; an all-day dining outlet serving authentic Malaysian favourites and Western cuisine; a sophisticated lobby lounge; relaxing pool bar; and a dramatic top-floor sky lounge, perched on the 23rd floor and offers 360-degree views as far as Kuala Lumpur.

The Klang Valley, which includes Kuala Lumpur, is home to approximately eight million people – about a quarter of Malaysia’s entire population. Housing KLIA, Malaysia’s main international air gateway, and Port Klang, one of the world’s busiest container ports and Kuala Lumpur’s main cruise hub, this dynamic region is at the very heart of Malaysia’s national economy.
