Accor signs Mercure Living Putrajaya

by | 19 Jun 2021 | Hotel Projects, Projects

French hospitality giant Accor is set to roll out Malaysia’s first Mercure Living property, with the planned April-2022 opening of an extended-stay hotel in Putrajaya.

The 299-key property promises to deliver a refreshingly modern hotel experience for both business and leisure travellers planning longer trips.

A prime location

Mercure Living Putrajaya will be conveniently located within the Shaftsbury Putrajaya retail complex, connected to Alamanda Shopping Mall, in what’s considered to be the Administrative Centre of Malaysia. This site is just a 30-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, as well as the city of Kuala Lumpur – an ideal base for guests visiting the government offices and city of Cyberjaya, which boasts a science park that represents 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,” said Garth Simmons, chief executive officer for Accor in Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea. “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.”

Designed for longer stays

Envisaged as a hub for events and business gatherings, the Mercure hotel will house an all-day dining restaurant, executive lounge and meeting rooms, along with spacious modern suites encompassing dining and living areas as well as workspace. These facilities will be joined by a 52-metre infinity saltwater swimming pool, fitness centre, tennis court and spa, providing ample space for guests to unwind.

Ir Tan Chee Kian, director of Ulster Waves Sdn Bhd, said: “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.”
