Impiana Push for Higher Occupancy

IMPIANA KLCC Hotel & Spa are hoping to boost their occupancy rate from 60 per cent to 80 per cent next year.

Its general manager, Mark Rummery, said although this year’s rates, which averages RM185 a room, was satisfactory, the four-star hotel is aiming to upgrade it to RM220 in 2007.

“The first quarter of this year was tough for us being a new hotel.

“But being close to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre really helps. Our occupancy would increase whenever there is a convention,” he said.

So what does Impiana KLCC have in store for Visit Malaysia Year 2007?

“We have yet to decide on a promotion for VMY 2007 but we will be assisting the Malaysian Tourism Board in fostering the industry,” said Rummery.

He said the hotel will be promoting an Indochina buffet during the Christmas and New Year season as compared to the local and Western delicacies offered by other hotels.

For jazz lovers, Impiana KLCC recently signed up a local trio, Eye2Eye Jazz Mix, who will be performing at Tonka Bean Cafe.Deli, the hotel’s 24-hour dining restaurant.

Rummery said the hotel’s pool and spa, which is under construction, will be completed with a Balinese theme by year-end.

Impiana KLCC is owned by Heritage Lane Sdn Bhd and run by Impiana Hotels & Resorts Management Sdn Bhd (IHRM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of KAB Group.
