KUALA LUMPUR: Ancasa Hotels & Resorts, an UDA Holdings Bhd hotel chain, seeks to become a four-star hotel from three-star by the end of this year.
The hotel operator has started upgrading its facilities and rooms last year.
Ancasa Sdn Bhd hospitality division senior vice president Shah Azam Khan Noor Mohammad said the upgrading works included the Ancasa Hotel & Spa and the Ancasa [email protected] in Kuala Lumpur as well as the Ancasa Residences in Port Dickson, Negri Sembilan.
The company allocated RM30 million of investment for the two locations. Upgrading works are expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of this year.
“This upgrading works are aimed at improving the hotels’ convenience as well as providing quality services to our customers in the future.
“We see that there is a need to carry out this upgrading work and we have to take advantage of our hotel locations, especially the Ancasa Hotel & Spa dan Ancasa [email protected] Pudu, located near the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) which is expected to grow rapidly soon," he said at Ancasa Hotels & Resorts' 'Ramadan Buffet Kampong Boy' media review here recently.
Shah Azam said Ancasa Hotel & Resort remains optimistic with the market prospects this year based on good performance recorded in terms of revenue in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period last year.
“We are always optimistic about the local hotel market and we hope to be able to perform better than last year,” he said.
Ancasa Hotel & Spa has five hotels in four locations – two in Kuala Lumpur and three in Port Dickson, Pekan and Kuala Terengganu.
Meanwhile, Ancasa Hotel & Spa introduced its 'Ramadan Buffet Kampong Boy', featuring 120 different types of traditional dishes.
It will start from May 17 to June 14 this year, in conjunction with the upcoming fasting month.
The promotion also coincides with the hotel’s “Stay, Dine & Win” campaign that is ending July 14, which is also the date for the World Cup 2018 finals.
The buffet price is RM58 for customers who purchased vouchers before May 12. The price after May 12 is RM68 for adults and RM40 for children.
