Thong Fook Group wholly-owned WEIL Resources has opened its first flagship hotel in Malaysia. The WEIL Hotel is set in the heart of Ipoh, a transit hub where local and international tourists, business travellers as well as families travelling up north, east-west and down south through Ipoh as well as where interstate city travellers convene.
With its strategic location, the WEIL Hotel affords its guests a truly connected lifestyle. Mr Liew Yu-Wei, Executive Director, WEIL Resources Sdn Bhd said, “The Thong Fook Group has been in Malaysia since 1945 via the groundnut Pagoda brand. Over the years, we have grown and diversified our business in the plastics manufacturing and precision plastic moulding industries into other industries with interests particularly in the fast-moving consumer goods, wellness and now, the hospitality industry. The unveiling of WEIL Hotel is a showcase of our foray into the hospitality industry.”
“With the opening of WEIL Hotel, we have further extended our footprint in Perak, Malaysia and Asia. We bring about a new concept to the hospitality industry where we blend quality hotel services with premium amenities. We foresee WEIL Hotel will bring about a change in the business, socio-economic and lifestyle landscape in Ipoh in particular and to the state of Perak in general.”
The WEIL Hotel consists of 313 units of rooms and suites. Travellers will also enjoy specially handpicked and designed bedding, room furnishings and fittings that offer exquisite comfort to the discerning travellers and immerse themselves in a luxurious home away from home experience.
Other facilities include Rooftop Infinity Pool with amazing views of Ipoh’s landscape with the backdrop of Ipoh’s idyllic town and the iconic limestone hills, gymnasium and spa (targeted to open early 2015) as well as a wide variety of dining outlets. Guests can choose from a variety of gastronomic delights which include TIFFIN an All-Day Dining Restaurant that serves a wide range of both local and International cuisine, Yuk Sou Hin Chinese Restaurant serving contemporary Cantonese cuisine, Tea Lounge with a wide selection of teas, snacks and English tea-time delights and The Deck, a rooftop gastro bar with spectacular views of the city.
“That’s why we are calling WEIL Hotel, a bespoke hotel (defined as ‘made-to-order). We aim to be the preferred hotel in Ipoh, not just by our fittings and furnishings but also our people. We have put emphasis in the decor to deliver sophistication, warmth and comfort, while implementing training programmes to continuously develop our employees to become exemplary service professionals,” added Liew.
