Operating a stellar collection of award winning hotels, resorts and spas throughout Malaysia and across the world, YTL Hotels spoke to e-Travel Blackboard about the opening of new properties, product developments and resort refurbishments with new initiatives to capture a growing Australian market.
When staying at a YTL Hotel property, Australian travellers can expect a focus on consistent quality, luxury, authenticity and service, offering not only a place to stay but a unique experience relevant to the destination.
Popular with the Australian market, YTL Hotel’s ski-in and ski-out Niseko Village in Japan attracts approximately 20,000 Aussie’s a year. Not only offering some of the best skiing on the finest alpine terrain in the world, Niseko Village is just as popular in the summer months offering tree trekking through the forest to playing golf on verdant greens.
A bit closer to home and easily accessible from Kota Kinabalu in Borneo, YTL Hotels President James McBride showed his excitement around the opening of Gaya Island Resort, scheduled for June/July this year.
A beachside resort blending in harmoniously with rainforest surrounds, Gaya Island Resort is located on the island Pulau Gaya off the coast of Kota Kinabalu in Borneo. “Borneo is the new Bali,” Mr McBride said as he described the destination and the resort featuring 120 stunning hillside villas, a luxurious two-bedroom suite and impressive Spa Village.
When asked about the presence of YTL Hotels in the Australian market for booking, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at YTL Hotels Luke Hurford told e-Travel Blackboard “We work with all the major operators and our operator business has been growing from Australia over the past 12 months.”
