General Manager of Mercure Kota Kinabalu City Centre, Jacques Leizerovici said that in line with the group’s vision, they have established their latest addition in town, Mercure Hotel.

In the near future, more hotel chains under the group, such as Ibis, Pullman and Marriot will join the hotel industry in town.

“We are in the process of developing Ibis Hotel located in the bustling commercial township of Inanam. Featuring 184 rooms with free high speed wifi, restaurant, bar, gym, event halls and a Sky deck on the top floor overlooking the lush green landscape, it is expected to open very soon.

“As soon as Sabah International Convention Centre opens, we will introduce another hotel, Pullman Hotel,” Jacques said at a luncheon with the local media here, yesterday.

He added that Sabah has a lot of potential to grow, in terms of tourism and hotel sectors.

This is also encouraging the Group to focus their energy, by developing more hotels in the state across all market segments.
