Golden Wave Sdn Bhd and InterContinental Hotels Group have recently signed a hotel management agreement for a 367-room hotel, which is scheduled to open by 2021 in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, East Malaysia. The Crowne Plaza Kota Kinabalu Waterfront will be one of the components of a mixed-use development alongside high-end residences and several food and beverage outlets, which offer striking views of the waterfront. The hotel will be approximately a 10-minute drive away from the Kota Kinabalu International Airport and within walking distance to major offices, shopping malls and tourist attractions, making it a strong choice for travelers who look to reduce travel time. While Kota Kinabalu is recognized to be one of the newest emerging tourist destinations in Malaysia, the hotel is expected to also benefit by being a popular option for both business and leisure travellers due to its prime location.
