Regent Reaunched by IHG
Following the acquisition of a majority stake in Regent Hotels & Resorts in March and appointment of Justin Channe as managing director in May, the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has relaunched the iconic luxury brand alongside the signing of Regent Kuala Lumpur.
Speaking at HICAP in Hong Kong last week, Channe said: “Our current growth is predominantly observed in Asia but there is interest from Europe. My priority is to bring the existing Regent portfolio and all our embedded hallmarks, service behaviour and brand promise into these hotels. Then, we’ll look how to work with owners on bringing these hotels up to the design standard of Regent, while at the same time prepare to close the Hong Kong property for full renovation and reopen it as a flagship hotel in 2020.”
The company last week announced its signing with Multibay Development to build a Regent hotel in Malaysia. Slated to open in 2022, the 250-key Regent Kuala Lumpur will be located next to Tun Razak Exchange, a 28ha mixed-use development.
