Bangi Resort Hotel has been awarded “ The First Durian-Friendly Hotel & Resort” today by The Malaysia Book of Records as part of Bangi Golf Resort’s Durian Festival & Awards. This historical event is witnessed by the YAB Tuan Amirudin Shari, the Chief Minister of Selangor and presented by Mr Jwan Heah Yeow Hooi, Director, Business Development, Malaysia Book of Records.
Crowned as “The King of Fruit”, is the most famous fruit in Malaysia. Loved by the majority locals, perhaps despised by some, the demand of Durian has significantly increased recently especially from China, Australia, and parts of Europe for Malaysian durian. For tourists, a visit to Malaysia would not be complete without trying the fruit. Durian eating can also be considered as a Malaysian culture. Durians are usually available by the roadsides and hawker stalls around Malaysia during its season. However, most public places and establishment would not allow the durian to be brought into or consumed in its premises due to its strong scent.
This is where the idea of having a purposely-built outlet dedicated for durian lovers to converge, enjoy and get to know more about the fruit camme in. Located within the expansive greens of Bangi Golf Resort, The Farm Cube is an extension outlet by Bangi Resort Hotel. It is a three-storey building, built using shipping containers located adjacent to the hotel parking area, housing a Durian Research Centre, a hawker-style food and beverage outlet selling burgers and wraps and a mini farmer’s market selling variety of durians, fruits harvested from Bangi Farm Resort and partner farms as well as other agro-based products. Visitors and guest will have the opportunity to buy their favourite durian variety from the hotel and savour it at The Farm Cube.
Bangi Resort Hotel hopes to attract more local and international visitors to Bandar Baru Bangi with the opening of The Farm Cube as a durian hub and enjoy the many services offered at Baangi Resort Hotel as “ The First Durian-Friendly Hotel & Resort in Malaysia”. Apart from that, the hotel also offers special meeting packages with the optional inclusion of durian eating and experience.
Bangi Resort Hotel is proud to receive the “The First Durian-Friendly Hotel & Resort” award and look forward to providing exceptional service and great products to all. Tucked on Bandar Baru Bangi’s highest peak amidst six acres of lush tropical gardens, Bangi Resort Hotel is definitely a serene retreat with great convenience and affordable comfort!
