Ascott Malaysia’s bold takeover reveals Fox Glenmarie as premier destination


ASCOTT Malaysia, a subsidiary of CapitaLand Investment Ltd, has made a significant mark in the luxury hospitality industry with the grand renaming of The Glenz Glenmarie to Fox Glenmarie.

This move isn’t merely a change of name; it’s a strategic takeover that speaks volumes about Ascott Malaysia’s commitment to setting new standards and exceeding guest expectations.

Ascott’s Country GM for Malaysia, Mondi Mecja, is enthusiastic about the takeover as he sees Fox Glenmarie as a flagship project in Ascott Malaysia’s regional portfolio, poised to redefine urban living experiences.

“With Shah Alam’s promising tourism prospects, this strategic move reinforces Ascott Malaysia’s dedication to providing unparalleled hospitality,” he said in a statement.

Its owner representative, Maria Malik, is equally passionate about Fox Glenmarie’s state-of-the-art meeting facilities.

“With the capability to accommodate up to 300 guests, these facilities promise seamless execution for corporate events or private celebrations, ensuring unforgettable moments for all attendees,” she said.

Situated strategically near the upcoming Kerjaya Station LRT 3 (STN 9), Fox Glenmarie offers unparalleled accessibility, a mere 15-minute drive from Sultan Aziz Airport (Subang Airport) and 40 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

This prime location in the heart of Shah Alam positions Fox Glenmarie as the top choice for both travellers and locals, promising a blend of convenience and luxury.

This robust expansion reflects Ascott Malaysia’s commitment to providing diverse, flexible and convenient accommodation options for guests.

As the serviced residence sector gains momentum, Ascott Malaysia remains at the forefront, catering to the evolving needs of travellers seeking extended stays.

Mecja said the company’s dedication to diversity, flexibility and convenience in accommodation options, aiming to provide a comfortable and secure “home away from home” experience for guests.

Meanwhile, senior manager of business development Shaun Yee shed light on the evolving landscape of hospitality assets in Malaysia.

“With maturing demand in key cities and increased foreign direct investment (FDI) in sectors such as industrial and manufacturing, the outlook for the tourism industry appears optimistic,” she said in a statement.

According to the group, this trend is expected to contribute to stable demand for mid to long-term corporate stays, highlighting the resilience and potential of Malaysia’s hospitality sector in 2024 and beyond.
