Lexis Suites Penang Sets Precedence In Unchartered Waters
Lexis Suites Penang received vehement praises from the Balik Pulau Member of Parliament- Muhammad Bakhtiar Wan Chik in a recent article he had penned for publication in the Malay Mail. Titled “How to save the Malaysian Tourism Industry”, published on Sunday the 7th of Jun 2020, his bold and very insightful piece unravels the harsh reality faced by local tourism industry players in the face of the current pandemic and economic slump, as well as how a selected few industry players and government agencies managed to persevere despite the circumstances. Below is a snippet from the said piece:
“A local player in the name of Lexis Penang is one that has taken up such measures and this has ended up bearing fruit for them with occupancy rates reaching almost 50 per cent. Of course, to entice our locals to be lured by such efforts, the hoteliers will need to offer discounts and booking vouchers that are valid for a long period of time.
The key in making this a success would lie in keeping the hotels and resorts operating at low density and to ensure social distancing protocols are adhered at all times.
This would definitely allow the hotels to make a comeback and play an instrumental part in reviving the tourism economy.”
