The Haven Resort Hotel Ipoh held its annual thanksgiving celebration on Saturday, June 23 at the resort. Attended by over 170, the dinner was held under specially-constructed-clear-sky tents right on the helipad.

“We’ve overcome a ‘zero’ valuation from valuers over our Permai Low Cost Apartments. It is now being sold at over RM150,000 per unit (from RM55,000 per unit),” said Peter Chan, the chief executive officer.

“We’ve overcome severe naysaying and undermining in this Haven Ipoh development. We thank God and we thank you for assisting us to overcome all these debilitating obstacles,” he added.

The audience was in for a treat as they became among the first to hear the updates regarding the upcoming The Haven Lagoi Bay, Bintan. “It’s a development that stands above all others with an unmatched combination of views, breezes, security, management and other services,” Peter stated.

“Already a popular destination for sports and leisure activities, Bintan is expected to grow exponentially. Tourist arrivals are expected to increase by 30 percent per annum. It’ll reach 3.5 million per year in the next four years,” he remarked.

The evening proceeded with a video presentation of birthday wishes compiled by the staff for their CEO. A number of performances followed. They included the art of mask changing, live quartet, solo guitar and dances. Among the guests was notable emcee, KT Pillai who did an impromptu rap. The finale was a cake-cutting ceremony where everyone joined in the sing-along.

The Haven Group has garnered 48 national, regional and international awards to date including The Minister’s Award, Brand of the Year, Man of the Year, Property Man of the Year (CEO) and Best High Rise Residential Development (FIABCI).

Since its inception in 2002, the project developer has established itself as someone who creates exceptional value in its products. Every project in its portfolio has appreciated in value two or three folds over a period of three to five years after completion.
