With the official opening of The Haven Luxury Resort Hotel Suites comprising 150 suite units, this multiple award-winning property has been elevated to become the most attractive vacation destination of luxury 5-star accommodation, food and services in Ipoh.
The suites range in size from 868 sq. ft. to 2072 sq. ft. and are managed by Best Western International, one of the world’s largest hotel management chains under their Premier 5-star category.
Offering luxurious facilities surrounded by a natural green environment on the edge of a virgin forest just five minutes’ drive from the North/South highway interchange exit and 15 minutes’ drive from city centre, The Haven is an ideal high-end vacation destination that caters to all three generations of a family, from the juniors to the seniors.
During the official opening ceremony, Mr. Peter Chan, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of The Haven Sdn. Bhd. was happy to share the efforts taken to protect the environment of the property.
He said, “We have not cut down any trees nor blasted any hills. On the other hand, we have harvested all available energy resources via rainwater harvesting, solar and windmill turbine energy generation to reduce carbon footprint. We also created special pits to decompose waste matter for use as fertilisers in the garden.”
These are obviously just a fraction of initiatives taken to maintain the property’s green environment. Anyone who has visited The Haven would be impressed with the high and wide windows or the iron grilled doors with multiple-hole puncture to allow air flow, all aimed at reducing the dependency on air-conditioners.
Guest-of-honour Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri bin Abdul Aziz, Malaysia’s Minister of Tourism and Culture, who himself is a Perakian, was in awe of the development that is The Haven.
He said, “This is my first visit to The Haven and I am overwhelmed by the beauty of it. I can just imagine that it must have just been a neglected part of Perak before this development. This is fantastic! Out of nothing, Mr. Peter Chan has created this world-class beauty.”
Fresh from winning its latest award last month, Global Retreat Destination of the Year, presented by Luxury Travel Guide, The Haven has also been recognised by the Malaysian Tourism Ministry as a 5-star development encompassing a premier hotel.
Two months ago, The Haven was accorded Asia’s Best Resort Residence by The Property Report Magazine and is shortlisted as finalists in the World Luxury Hotel Awards in 3 categories:- Luxury Family All-Inclusive Hotel, Luxury Hotel – Best Scenic Environment & Luxury Suite Hotel.
