AVANI Hotels & Resorts
,?the vibrant upscale brand launched by Thailand-based?Minor Hotel Group
?in 2011, has added its fifth property ??AVANI Sepang GoldCoast Resort
?in Malaysia. The resort is located on the country?s west coast in the state of Selangor, close to Sepang International Circuit ? home to the Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix ? and 45 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
Formerly operating as Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa, the resort has a distinctive design in the shape of a palm tree and has relaunched under the AVANI flag following the completion of the first of two phases of a total MYR 15 million refurbishment programme. Facilities at the resort include five restaurants and two bars, a spa, an extensive selection of activities and an 840 square metre ballroom.
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotel Group, AVANI?s parent company, also commented, ?We are very happy to launch AVANI Sepang GoldCoast Resort in Malaysia, a great addition to our growing AVANI portfolio. This resort will be joined later on this year by several further rebranded AVANI properties, with the first new-build AVANIs to follow next year.?
Surrounded by the sheltered waters of Malaysia?s Malacca Straits, AVANI Sepang GoldCoast Resort offers a secluded tropical hideaway that blends easy accessibility with a feeling of getting away from it all. ?Set along Sepang GoldCoast?s 22 kilometre shore, the resort has a mainland beachfront setting with lush gardens and a palm structure built on stilts which extends over warm shallow waters. The overwater palm features 392 contemporary Polynesian-inspired guest rooms and one, two and three bedroom villas, all with a sea view. Guests staying in a Three Bedroom Villa also experience first class butler service including welcome drinks and a special check-in service, before being taken to their villa by private buggy. ?So that all guests can enhance their resort experience, this exclusive butler service can be booked for all accommodation types.
The resort has an impressive selection of dining options. The five restaurants include Sepoi Sepoi with a cafe ambience and a Malaysia-Chinese coffee shop menu of freshly brewed coffee, casual lunches, afternoon snacks and laid back dinners. ?Two restaurants are located in the central area of the palm and have both been fully refurbished. Translating as ?anytime?, Bila Bila?s all day international buffet and a la carte offerings can be enjoyed in air conditioned indoor comfort or on an outdoor deck with a sea breeze, whilst Hai Sang Lou is the resort?s Chinese fine dining specialty restaurant serving both lunch and dinner. The beachfront restaurant Perahu boasts a superb sundowner experience from the deck and imaginative local and global flavours, including Malay barbeque delights, with the mood picking up at night when a live band hits the stage. ?Another great sunset spot and evening dining, Stimbot impresses with artfully prepared oriental specialties.
For poolside refreshments, the refurbished Buloh Bar offers extensive beverages and light bites and after sundown kicks up a notch with live entertainment. ?Selat Bar on Sunset Beach serves tropical drinks with waves breaking just a few steps away and offers karaoke, billiards and pool. In addition, an ideal meeting place is Bayu Lounge, a contemporary lobby venue which has been completely refreshed with a touch of Malaysian design and serves snacks, pastries, cakes and desserts.
