Soon after its latest awards which The Haven Resort Hotel, Ipoh scooped up at the prestigious Malaysian Property Press Awards (MPPA) 2016/2017 in December, now hot off the press as Ipoh Echo goes to print, Haven’s CEO Peter Chan received news that TripAdvisor, that global arbiter of traveller’s choice, has placed Haven as one of the Top 10 Hotels for families in Malaysia for 2018.

“It is an amazing feat considering the size of investment and the breakthrough of Ipoh as a New Resort Destination. Kudos. The State Government should be very proud of this achievement, which is a tremendous boost for Ipoh. You will now be able to successfully promote Haven and Ipoh internationally,” came the advice from TripAdvisor.

Another comment from a TripAdvisor reader said, “The success story is remarkably appealing to many travellers who previously did not regard Ipoh as a tourist destination...The accolade compliments both Ipoh and Haven, and hopefully will catalyze further development and improve business for Malaysia. The Haven has captured the heart of Malaysians and many others who want a piece of that unique experience…”

On the other hand, it was accorded by MPPA both the ‘Outstanding Achievement Award’ for elevating Ipoh as a resort destination globally and the ‘Best Family Hotel Resort’ following on from its success back in 2015 when it was honoured with the ‘Outstanding Achievement Award (Resort)’ and ‘Best Resort & Hotel Project’.

“We are grateful that our efforts in promoting Ipoh as a resort destination and in providing extraordinary service to our guests have been noticed and recognised,” Peter Chan, The Haven’s CEO stated in a statement.

Naturally framed with the beauty of limestone, forests and lakes, The Haven is an all-suite, luxury resort that offers five-star accommodation, food and service for the family. It caters to three generations – child(ren), parent(s) and grandparent(s), with the whole development designed to be disabled-friendly.

“The Haven’s aim is to be the best of the best in the industry. Its focus is on the vacation needs of the entire family. These awards are a testimony that we are succeeding in our efforts,” he added.

MPPA recognises outstanding achievements in the property industry annually through the granting of awards. Organised by strategic property content provider, Terra Value Sdn Bhd, it is adjudicated exclusively by senior members of the press.

In a relatively short span of time, this pioneering green developer has placed Ipoh on the world map and has garnered 45 prestigious local and international accolades thus far.
