Accor has announced the signing of a new Mercure hotel in Malaysia.

Through this, the hospitality brand brings the recently launched concept of “Mercure Living” that features convenient amenities such as kitchenettes, working spaces as well as encouraging the shared living areas for the first time in the country.

Mercure Living Putrajaya hotel is scheduled to debut in April 2022, with 299 modern guestrooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant, and an executive lounge.

Other amenities include a 52-metre infinity saltwater swimming pool, a fitness centre, a tennis court and a spa.

The property is a 30-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the city centre.

The hotel is centrally located in the Administrative Centre of Malaysia, and is housed within the Shaftsbury Putrajaya retail complex and connected to Alamanda Shopping Mall.

Garth Simmons, chief executive officer, Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea said:

“We are thrilled to be unveiling our first Mercure Living concept in Malaysia which will arrive in time for the return of travel as international borders reopen. Mercure Living Putrajaya will offer an appealing selection of amenities for those staying for a longer period of time and I know from experience just how important some of those offerings are whilst out on the road.

“Accor is proud to offer the industry’s most comprehensive extended stay hotel and private rental brand portfolio, and we are committed to expanding even further into this space to offer more choice to our loyal guests.”

The hotel joins a pipeline of 15 committed projects across Malaysia.
