KUCHING, Jan 22 (Bernama) -- Global hotel chain OYO Hotels & Homes has made a significant impact in Sarawak as 1,519 rooms in the state have been registered with it within a span of two years.
In a statement today, the company said property owners in the state only begun to register with OYO in 2018.
“By the end of last year, Miri recorded the highest number of rooms at 571, followed by Kuching with 567 rooms and Bintulu at 381 rooms,” it said, adding that this reflected Sarawak’s position as a key growth segment for the company.
OYO Hotels and Homes’ Malaysia country head, Tan Ming Luk said, since it entered the country in 2017, its global formula had been instrumental in uplifting the operations of their asset owner partners and vital in ensuring OYO’s growth over 2018 and 2019.
“The success generated from the implementation of OYO’s formula generates further interest from other asset owners, thus continuing the cycle of expansion for the OYO network,” he said.
OYO started in Malaysia with just under 5,000 rooms and 121 properties, before growing to 17,474 rooms and 270 properties by late last year to cater to better demand for its short term accommodations during the Visit Malaysia 2020 period.
