NEW WELLNESS-LEISURE MIXED DEVELOPMENT IN MALACCA PROMISES THE BEST OF LIVING… BOTH PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY
BY Zoe Phoon
Malaccans can look forward to new homes and world-class amenities that promote wellness in three years’ time when the Satori mixed development with an estimated GDV of RM300 million is up and running.
For investors, it’s an opportunity to tap on wellness tourism, one of the fastest growing tourism markets.
With Satori, Singapore Exchange listed Hatten Land Ltd is pioneering a new holistic wellness niche in the heart of the historical Malacca city.
Datuk Colin Tan, executive chairman and managing director of Hatten Land, said Satori is one of its kind to combine health, fitness, beauty treatment, leisure, residences and a hotel all in one vibrant destination.
Its composition of facilities, residences and accommodation meets the aspirations of a sophisticated market which seeks quality wellness and health services.
Furthermore, its proximity to Hatten Land’s Hatten City and major developments like deepsea port, cruise terminal and the proposed Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail will position it for future growth in Malacca.
Already, Malacca is one of the most important cities in Malaysia’s west coast straddling the Straits of Malacca, one of the world’s busiest sea lanes.
Satori, meaning “enlightenment” in Japanese, integrates health, wellness, beauty and leisure in one destination, i.e. a contemporary wellness-inspired mixed development.
Curvilinear towers will house a premium wellness hotel and serviced apartments, a mall and over 50 health and wellness themed facilities.
Satori will also feature a complete range of sports, spa and pampering facilities alongside alternative treatment centres and vast leisure spaces.
Hatten Land’s wholly-owned subsidiary Prolific Properties Sdn Bhd will develop the project on a 2.05-acre land parcel.
According to a Hatten Land statement, the development with a gross floor area of about 570,400sq ft will comprise 192 serviced suites, an 85,250sq ft retail mall with adjoining car park with 457 lots, a 336-room hotel and wellness facilities.
These include fitness and spa gym; health food outlets; yoga room; sea salt spa and mud baths; beauty and haircare centre; herb garden; infinity pool, sky lounge and cabanas; and beanbag theatre.
Hatten Land said Satori as an investment will carve a niche in the multibillion-dollar global wellness-tourism market by making a definitive statement in the wellness sector.
A one-stop wellness-leisure destination in a city that hosts 16 million tourists a year, thanks to rich historical heritage, will create opportunities for investors to capitalise on Malaysia’s growing potential for wellness tourism.
