Accorhotels has opened a new Pullman property in Sarawak, Malaysia – the Pullman Miri Waterfront at the Miri Waterfront Commercial Centre, approximately ten minutes from Miri International Airport.
Claimed to be the tallest building in the city, the hotel provides views of the South China Sea and nearby Miri River. Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of the Sultanate of Brunei, is about an hour and a half away by car. Miri is also home to attractions such as Niah Cave, Loagan Bunut National Park and the Unesco-listed Gunung Mulu Cave National Park.
“The opening of Pullman Miri Waterfront underlines Accorhotels’ expansion in Malaysia and reinforces the brand commitments that offer hyper-connected travellers an experience that combines both efficiency and wellness in this modern hub city,” said Garth Simmons, COO of Accorhotels Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. “Pullman Miri Waterfront attracts cosmopolitan, sophisticated leisure travellers who come to see and feel the abundance of natural beauty.”
The hotel itself offers 328 rooms along with meetings and events spaces able to cater to approximately 1,000 people. All Day Dining Pullman Kitchen, meanwhile, features an open kitchen concept with international fare, while The Dining Room serves local dishes along with sandwiches. Cocktails can be had at either the Drinking Ape Bar and Lounge or the Splash Bar by the infinity pool. A fitness centre, Jacuzzi, sauna and spa round out the leisure offerings at the hotel.
Pullman currently operates some 117 hotels in resorts across the world.
