Posted on : Saturday 16 Jul 2016 12:01 AM


The Haven Resort Hotel and Residences celebrated 38 years of endeavour, achievements and contribution of its team led by its chief executive officer, Peter Chan on Saturday, June 11 at its ballroom.

Offering thanksgiving for overcoming obstacles such as false accusations, Peter had this to say to his 150-odd audience, “You’re our ambassadors as you see for yourselves that none of these negative rumours are true. Regarding our popularity, we’ve gone from 1.2 million visitors in October last year to the current 4.2 million. There is no stopping us. The way we’re going on, we may be the most popular hotel resort in the whole of Malaysia. Right now, we are number one in Ipoh.”

The evening featured staff performances, string quartet and scrumptious dishes crafted only at The Haven: merou au four four (oven-baked fillet of fish served with homemade teriyaki sauce), poulet grille (roasted farm-bred chicken served with wild fresh mushroom sauce), Arabian-style ghee rice, black peppered Mongolian lamb, mixed vegetable hollandaise, golden butter prawns, wild mushroom soup and homemade dessert.

“I’ve known Peter for 50 years. This God-fearing good friend of mine is very passionate in anything he does. The Bintan site for our next adventure is a fantastically beautiful place with its river, lake and sea,” guest of honour and director, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Haji Megat Najmuddin, stated.

The Haven Bintan @ Lagoi Bay is an upcoming mixed development of one-bedroom suite condotel units, resort hotel, villa residences, commercial units and shops.
