En.Nadziruddin Basri, Managing Director of Destination Resorts and Hotels, expressed DRH’s excitement to introduce another innovative tourism attraction to Malaysia. “We at DRH are focused in bringing new, innovative attractions to Malaysia’s Leisure and Tourism offerings and to make Malaysia a destination of choice for both local and international travellers. The LEGOLAND Hotel is set to heighten the LEGOLAND Malaysia theme park experience with its fun and interactive designs and facilities. We look forward to working with Merlin on this project and to opening our doors in 2014 and offering our guests the LEGOLAND Hotel’s unique experience”.

Siegfried Boerst, General Manager of LEGOLAND Malaysia explaining the development of the Legoland Malaysia site last month.


Mr Siegfried Boerst, General Manager of LEGOLAND Malaysia speaking on behalf of Merlin echoed DRH’s excitement. “LEGO® is one of the world’s most popular toys and has many fans here in Asia. Today’s announcement comes at an exciting time for all across the region as not only will we be offering the highest quality modern hotel accommodation, but most importantly, our magical LEGOLAND Hotels are  the first ever hotels designed from a child’s eye view. The opening of the Malaysia Hotel in 2014 will also create an integrated destination resort experience for families, allowing them to spend longer quality time together exploring and enjoying the LEGOLAND Malaysia offerings and the region”.
