KUCHING, June 11 (Bernama) -- Two international hotels will be built in Sematan, a town about 107 km west of here, through private investments worth RM120 million, said Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said it was in line with the Post-COVID-19 Development Strategy (PCIDS 2030) to utilise private investment funds in developing Sarawak.

“They (hotel investors) have shown me the design of the hotels, which is similar to the Palm Hotel in Dubai (United Arab Emirates). 

Sematan is going to be like Dubai,” he said at the launch of the Sungai Sematan Waterfront Pontoon and Landscape today.

The construction of the hotel will be carried out within three years to attract more foreign visitors to the area.

He added that the accommodation would complement the Sarawak government’s effort to provide essential infrastructure such as road upgrades, electricity and water supply to Sematan in Lundu district, which is located southwest of the state.
