TOM ROELENS APPOINTED APPOINTED GENERAL MANAGER OF THE NEW FOUR SEASONS HOTEL KUALA LUMPUR

All-new hotel and residences in the city’s Golden Triangle set to open in mid 2018

Veteran Four Seasons hotel executive Tom Roelens has been appointed General Manager of the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, set to open in mid 2018. The 209-room Hotel is paired with the company’s largest residential project to date, with 242 Four Seasons Private Residences and 27 serviced apartments. Four Seasons will be housed in the new, 65-storey building that will be the second tallest in all of Malaysia – surpassed only by the famed Petronas Towers, a landmark that happens to be right next door.

“Tom is the ideal choice to oversee this important project toward its opening date, and to lead the debut of Four Seasons in Kuala Lumpur,” says Rainer Stampfer, Four Seasons President, Hotel Operations Asia Pacific. “His depth of experience in transforming our two resorts on the Hawaiian island of Lanai, and his tremendous enthusiasm for the project and the city make him an ideal ambassador for Four Seasons in the city.”

Roelens’ Four Seasons career began in Southeast Asia 17 years ago at the former Regent Jakarta, following earlier positions in Bali, Dubai and his native Belgium. After a stint in California, he returned to Asia and island life at the acclaimed Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa, before leading the extensive transformation of Four Seasons Resort Lanai over the past ten years. Now, he takes on his most challenging role yet at the helm of the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

“It’s an absolutely stunning building in the best possible location in the city,” says Roelens. “I’m particularly excited that in this fast-paced and expanding metropolis, we will be able to offer both business and leisure travellers a true oasis of luxury and personalised service in an intimate setting, while remaining wired to the city’s energy and opportunity.”

As Roelens assembles his team, construction continues to progress at a rapid pace, and the reservation books are opened now.
