KUALA LUMPUR — Accor is preparing to welcome the first Mercure Living concept to Malaysia with the signing of Mercure Living Putrajaya. The 299-key property will debut in April 2022, offering a refreshingly modern experience for those seeking longer stays whilst traveling for business or leisure. The hotel joins a pipeline of 15 committed projects across Malaysia.
Featuring an all-day dining restaurant, executive lounge and collection of meeting rooms, Mercure Living Putrajaya is set to become a hub for events and business gatherings. Leisure facilities include a 52-metre infinity salt water swimming pool, fitness centre, tennis court and spa, ensuring quality downtime and recuperation is made possible. Guests will feel right at home in the spacious and modern suites which include dining and living areas as well as work spaces.
Centrally located in the Administrative Centre of Malaysia, Mercure Living Putrajaya will be housed within the Shaftsburry Putrajaya retail complex and connected to Alamanda Shopping Mall. A convenient 30 minutes’ drive from both Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the city centre of Kuala Lumpur, the hotel will serve as an excellent base for those visiting the nearby government offices and city of Cyberjaya, home to a science park that forms an integral part of Malaysia’s Multimedia Super Corridor.
“We are thrilled to be unveiling our first Mercure Living concept in Malaysia which will arrive in time for the return of travel as international borders reopen. Mercure Living Putrajaya will offer an appealing selection of amenities for those staying for a longer period of time and I know from experience just how important some of those offerings are whilst out on the road. Accor is proud to offer the industry’s most comprehensive extended stay hotel and private rental brand portfolio, and we are committed to expanding even further into this space to offer more choice to our loyal guests,” said Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer, Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea.
Mercure Living Putrajaya joins Accor’s growing network of extended stay hotels, tailored to the needs of travellers based in hotels for longer periods, and which typically feature convenient amenities such as kitchenettes and working spaces, as well as concepts to encourage a greater sense of community such as shared living areas. The group currently manages over 50,000 villas, apartments and private rentals worldwide.
Ir. Tan Chee Kian, Director of Ulster Waves Sdn. Bhd. (a subsidiary of iKHASAS Sdn Bhd), commented “We are pleased to be partnering with Accor to reimagine the former Stellar Putrajaya Hotel and offer a refreshing sense of hospitality for which the Mercure brand is renowned. We are confident in the long-term outlook of the tourism industry following the global health crisis and look forward to leveraging the global scale of Accor to welcome guests from all over the world to experience Mercure Living Putrajaya”.
