KUALA LUMPUR: Property developer Tropicana Corporation Bhd has signed a hotel management agreement with Marriott International Inc to build a five-star 270-key Sheraton Langkawi Resort & Spa at Tropicana Cenang, Langkawi.

Tropicana said the collaboration came as Langkawi saw increasing tourist and investor interest, with the potential to reach a pre-pandemic tourism peak of four million arrivals annually.

“This is Tropicana’s third hotel collaboration with Marriott International, continuing the group’s ongoing expansion plans in Langkawi and strengthening its presence in the hospitality segment,” it said.

The agreement was signed between Tropicana subsidiary Cenang Resort Sdn Bhd, represented by Tropicana group managing director Dion Tan and Marriott International Asia Pacific hotel development senior vice president Kevin Chen.

Marriott International Asia Pacific hotel development senior director Andree Susilo said the agreement further strengthened the group’s commitment to bring a host of choices across its brands to consumers in the country.

“We are thrilled to expand our portfolio of hotels and resorts in Langkawi – one of the most beautiful and beloved islands in Malaysia.

“Sheraton is the most global brand under Marriott Bonvoy portfolio and this is our third collaboration with Tropicana, with the first two being the popular W Kuala Lumpur and Courtyard by Marriott in Penang.

“Once opened, Sheraton Langkawi Resort & Spa expects to offer urban conveniences as well as majestic skyline views of the surrounding, stunning Langkawi landscape,” he said in a statement today.

Tan said building on Tropicana’s long-standing and fruitful partnership with Marriott International, the company was excited to develop Sheraton Langkawi Resort & Spa at the popular Pantai Cenang beachfront.

“Leveraging on the strategic location and increasing tourism footfall in Langkawi, we are confident that this 270-key hotel will draw a lot of interest from tourists.

“In addition, Tropicana Cenang is a unique mixed development offering residential, hospitality and commercial components. With all these components in place, the planned hotel underscores our commitment to continue Redefining the Art of Living in Langkawi,” he said.

Designed by award-winning architects and consultants, Sheraton Langkawi Resort & Spa is set to be the new gathering place for locals and travellers to enjoy meaningful connections and elevated guest experiences through its stylish comfort, authentic sense of the local and genuine service.
