The newest hotel on Langkawi’s Western shoreline in Malaysia, Aloft Langkawi Pantai Tengah has appointed Perak-born Ammar Kevin Eu to lead the opening team. Well-adept with the operations of a pre-opening hotel, Kevin joins the Aloft Langkawi Pantai Tengah to head the team with nearly 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry under his belt.
A seasoned hotelier, Kevin began his career in hospitality in the Food and Beverage department as a Restaurant Manager. He then moved on to join the pre-opening team of JW Marriott Hotel Kuala Lumpur managing the restaurant openings and eventually overseeing the expansion of the Hotel’s Conference Centre. After a decade with JW Marriott, Kevin undertook the Hotel Manager role at the local Hotel chain, Vistana Hotel Kuantan, and the Resort Manager role at the Tanjong Jara Resort, a luxury beach resort in the East Coast of Malaysia, all of which are part of the YTL Hotels portfolio.
In 2013, Kevin took on his first General Manager role at Vistana Kuala Lumpur before moving on to head the pre-opening team at the 5-star luxury resort Mangala Resort & Spa in Kuantan and later on, the Swiss-Garden Hotel in Malacca.
An avid traveller and photographer, Kevin also love the exploration of arts and cooking. On special occasions, Kevin cooks up a storm for his family dishing out his specialty, beef rendang and steamed fish with soy sauce.
