“It is indeed an honour for us to be appointed as official hotel for the fourth time and we are glad to know the players enjoyed their stay here and truly overwhelmed by the warm hospitality and friendly reception that reflects our true Malaysian culture and custom.  With our experiences hosting these international star players for four consecutive year years, we have continually exceeded their expectations in hosting this world-class tournament as well as ensuring that their stay here the most comfortable and memorable one” said Mr Ho Hoy Sum, General Manager of One World Hotel.


“The hotel is proud to be associated with this world-class event.  With such close proximity to Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club (KLGCC), it has been a breeze for these world-class players to travel back and forth from the club. We look forward to the opportunity of hosting other international sports events in the near future.  We certainly hope that this will serve as a platform that will place One World Hotel’s brand to global recognition”, added Mr Ho.
