Felda chairman Tan Sri Dr Yusof Nor said the first hotel, with a resort concept, was being built on an 8ha site in Tanjung Leman, Johor.
Once completed by end of 2010, he said the RM31mil hotel would offer 200 rooms.
Apart from Johor, Felda had also received approval to build a hotel in Port Dickson, Negri Sembilan, he said after launching the Ramadan buffet at the Felda Residence Hotel here recently.
Dr Yusof said the Port Dickson hotel was being designed by a consultant.
The two new hotels would expand Felda’s diversified businessdealings, he added.
Dr Yusof said Felda presently owned two resorts in Pekan, Pahang and one in Perak apart from the Felda Residence Hotel here.
He said priority would be given to children of Felda settlers when filling management positions at the upcoming hotels.
