Travelodge Hotels Asia (TLA), which independently owns and manages the Travelodge brand aims to have 15 hotels here by 2025, affirming its commitment to and confidence in the Malaysian hotel market.

There are plans to introduce the Travelodge brand to other cities such as Kota Kinabalu, Melaka, Johor Bahru, and Kuching, said TLA managing director Marcus Aw.

TLA recently opened its fourth hotel in Malaysia, Travelodge Ipoh.

The first hotel, Travelodge Bukit Bintang opened in 2018, followed by Travelodge City Centre (Kuala Lumpur) and Travelodge Georgetown, Penang.

“We are thrilled to kick off 2020 with the opening of our fourth Travelodge hotel in Malaysia in just under 18 months. Our entry into Ipoh is fuelled by our confidence in the city’s growth prospects to become one of the country’s top destinations in the coming years,” said Aw.

Travelodge Ipoh is situated close to the city’s business district and famous tourist attractions such as Concubine Lane, Mural Art Lane, Perak Tong Cave Temple, Kellie’s Castle and Gua Tempurung.

It offers 268 newly refurbished rooms, two meeting rooms, three ballrooms, and a grand ballroom, targeting leisure and business travellers.

Aw said, as the country pushes for a huge tourism drive with an ambitious target of attracting 30 million international visitors and RM100 billion in tourist’s receipt for Visit Malaysia 2020, there is far more headroom for growth, especially for global midscale hotel brands that cater to value-conscious travellers.

“We are very excited about our long-term prospects in this market. With four hotels and a strong infrastructure already in place, we have a great platform to accelerate our footprint and advance our growth ambitions across Malaysia,” he said.
