The historic city’s appeal as a destination of choice for business and leisure travellers is expected to be strengthened further with the soon-to-open Ames Hotel, a 5-star hospitality enclave and city resort strategically located at Ayer Keroh, the gateway to the City of Melaka.
In celebrating the completion of the construction of the hotel, a topping-out ceremony was held recently and was graced by distinguished personalities including Dato’ Leong Sir Ley, Founder and Chairman of Sheng Tai International Sdn. Bhd. (Sheng Tai International); Jean Marc Laffose, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Alorie Hospitality Sdn Bhd (Alorie Hospitality); Mr. Collin Tan, Director of Sheng Tai International; Mr. Nicholas S.C. Leong, Sales Marketing Director for Sheng Tai International; and Mr. Balachandran A/L Govindasamy, General Manager for Ames Hotel.
Scheduled to open in the second half of 2019, Ames Hotel is a member of LSL Hotel Group which is the hospitality arm of Sheng Tai International. The hotel will be managed by Alorie Hospitality, a well-established and experienced hotel management specialist with a portfolio of world-class properties across the globe.
Ames Hotel was built at the cost of more than RM200 million. The hotel will be part of the Melaka Trade Square, or Metrasquare in short, which is a 6-acre commercial development comprising a residential component called the Metrasquare Serviced Suites, a three-star premium hotel called Hotel Metrasquare, as well as retail lots, meeting and conference facilities, F&B amenities, as well as an upcoming Melaka historical gallery and art social space. Metrasquare will collectively serve to elevate the overall area, transforming it into a popular destination for commercial, work, entertainment and arts for the locals as well as international tourists.
Dato’ Leong Sir Ley of Sheng Tai, said, “The topping-out of Ames Hotel marks an important milestone for Sheng Tai International and our hospitality arm, LSL Hotel Group. We are solidifying our presence in the hospitality industry with a world-class hospitality showcase that is managed by Alorie, one of the most proven and well-recognised hospitality experts in the industry.”
