InterContinental Hotels Group has announced the signing of a management agreement with Golden Wave Sdn Bhd for a new 367-room Crowne Plaza hotel in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, East Malaysia. The Crowne Plaza Kota Kinabalu Waterfront, opening in 2021, will mark the entry of the brand into East Malaysia. The hotel will be part of a mixed-use development at a prime waterfront location in downtown Kota Kinabalu, sitting amidst high-end residences and a number of dining establishments which offer views of the city’s waterfront.
The project site is located approximately 10 minutes from Kota Kinabalu International Airport, away the most traffic congested parts of the city, and within walking distance to major office buildings, shopping centres and tourist attractions.
A major highlight of the hotel will be the rooftop bar and restaurant, the first in Kota Kinabalu. The hotel will also feature an outdoor pool, spa and 24-hour fitness center, and meeting space.
