Even at the lower end of the market, if not managed by a professional operator, why not consider this?
The Langkawi District Development Cooperative, one of the most active cooperatives in the country, will open a 45-room hotel called “KPD INN” that will be operational by year-end.
Chairman Ismail Yaakob said a building adjacent to Langkawi Mall in Kuah, near the cooperative’s office, has been acquired to be developed into a hotel.
He said renovation work to build rooms and related facilities would start after receiving approval from the authorities.
He said the hotel would have 45 rooms for tourists coming to this tourist haven.
“This is one of the initiatives by the cooperative to diversify its participation in the tourism industry, besides increasing its revenue,” he told reporters here today.
Ismail said the hotel would help meet requirements for hotel rooms in Langkawi particularly during school and festive holidays.
The cooperative is engaged in diverse businesses including operating petrol kiosks, as a wholesaler and as a motorcycle agent.
