With the theme “Sharing the Fun & Joy of X’mas”, the joyous mood was made even livelier with a meaningful collaboration between the hotel and #Projek57 in a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative called “Stars of Hope”.

The objective of “Stars of Hope” programme is to empower Orang Asli (indigenous community) through education and retail training. Guests are encouraged to contribute to the programme with a minimum donation of RM10 for a ‘gold star’ to be hung onto the 15-foot Christmas tree at the hotel lobby. Don’t forget to write your X’mas wish on the star first. For your good deed, your wishes would surely come true!

The Stars of Hope are available at the hotel’s Festive Desk throughout this season of giving until 5th January, 2019, so make sure to support this cause. The target is to raise RM3,000. All proceeds will go to #Project57 programmes for the underprivileged Orang Asli youth, in line with the social enterprise’s vision of embracing diversity in Malaysia.
