Syuen Hotel Ipoh celebrated its 20th Anniversary recently. The Syuen Hotel, with 290 rooms, is one of Ipoh’s largest hotels located in the heart of Ipoh and was officially opened in 1993 by the then DYMM Yang Di Pertuan Agong Sultan Azlan Shah. The Syuen, one of Ipoh’s more resilient hotels, has seen Ipoh during its heyday and experienced its share of downturns along with the city.
The event, held at its 1200-sitting Grand Ballroom was a dinner function held in appreciation of its suppliers, contractors, corporate and government guests, staff and family members. Those present on the night included its founder Mr Yan Kock Yeun, Dato Hj Omar Hj Abu Ipoh’s first Mayor, G. Sivapragasam and Director Yan Gak Lok.
The night’s speech was delivered by Master Yan Wai Siong the young grandson of its founder Mr Yan Kock Yeun, who in his address stated that the event was to express the management’s gratitude to the hotel’s supporters and to instil a family spirit among the guests and staff.
One of the main events of the night was the presentation of long service awards to their staff who had been with them for 20 years and more, one of whom was its Director Ms Maggie Ong Mooi Kee. Founder Yan later joined the long serving staff to cut the anniversary cake to commemorate the auspicious event.
