Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort
STATE of the ART
Wellness themed resort by the leading developer, MB GROUP
Established in 1983, MB Group is now a multi-disciplined organisation with core business that spans across property development, construction, building material trading, interior and landscape design, hospitality, Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) Programme and others.With much said in recent times about the management of Malaysia’s natural resources and eco-diversity, one entity has risen to the occasion to develop one of the country’s gems into a wellness sanctuary. Dimensi Panorama Sdn Bhd, a member of MB Group, will champion healthy living and promote eco-tourism through Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort – the only residential project of its kind, which serves to cement Malaysia’s southern region as a popular retreat and eco-attraction.
With over 30 years of experience in the industry, its mission is to develop first-class properties for a sustainable and quality living of the community. In addition to that, the group is also partnering with the Johor State Government to deliver affordable homes to assist the low-income group in Johor.
The bulk of MB Group’s portfolio lies in Malaysia, where it is developing 6 hotels under the AmanSari brand and more than 30 commercial properties and residential properties. Currently, the Group’s developments are focused in Johor Bahru City Centre and Desaru area.
In Malaysia, the residential developments of MB Group can be categorised into 4 series:
- a) MB Basic Series: single-storey terraces, affordable homes
- b) MB Classic Series: condominiums, apartments
- c) MB Luxury Series: double-storey terraces, bungalows, villas, semi-detached and premium condominiums
- d) MB Prestige Series: exclusive luxury condominium, such as TriTower Residence, and premium integrated resorts, such as Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort
MB Group’s overseas investment under the SKS Group comprises of two residential properties, one mixed development and three hotels that are under construction in Western Australia.
Interestingly, the developer is also notable throughout Malaysia for being a successful ‘White Knight Developer’, having taken over numerous abandoned projects. Its commitment to continuous upgrading and dedication to forging new strategic alliances ensure that it continues to be the leader in the industry and maintain its existing reputation of being one of the best in the field.
It also strives towards developing premium properties that seek to improve the quality of life for all, hence the idea of Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort was created.
THE CREATION OF SPWR
According to MB Group, “The idea of developing a wellness resort at Sungai Pulai came about when the company realised the attractiveness and uniqueness in the proximity to nature – something that is not available through Iskandar Malaysia where the focus is on extensive urban development.”
Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort is a mixed development that offers residents the ideal proponents for quality multigenerational living from the thriving lush nature to family-friendly architectural design.
The 160,000 sq. ft. wellness clubhouse is a wellness passport based on Seven Dimensions of Wellness – Family Health Care, Preventive and Regenerative Care, Aesthetic and Beauty Care, Physical Care, Holistic Health Care, Fitness Care, and Concierge Medical Services Care. It sets a benchmark for wellness retreat services that include physiotherapy and chiropractic facility, nutrition consultation, scheduled fitness classes, and many more.
“Concierge Medical Services (CMS) will supplement the wellness clubhouse,” claimed MB Group. CMS is an exceptional wellness feature that can recommend and link residents to specialist physicians as well as hospitals locally and internationally, with the support of a 24-hour nurse and ambulance standby service. It is a one-stop information hub that brings professional physician right at your doorsteps with comprehensive online summary of your medical reports.
The residential precincts of Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort will be constructed in four phases, where the first phase of the residence called Canopus Residence, the wellness clubhouse and the hotel are target to be completed by 2018. It is now open for sale.
Canopus Residence consists of 8 blocks 11-storey apartments. It offers different living styles, ranging from 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom to dual key units that encourage multigenerational living under one roof, without compromising privacy.
The project is complemented by a 285-meter long podium with various recreational facilities catering for every age group such as gymnasium, swimming pool, study room, children’s playground, and landscaped garden.
The home design for Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort is family-friendly and comes with wider doors, sliding doors, dual key system, and wellness service buttons that are connected to the nurse service centre at the wellness clubhouse.
As a wellness resort, the project uses premium green materials for the units, such as non-toxic and anti-bacterial paint, ionised plaster ceiling board, and ionised wood flooring.
Other than that, there is also vast eco-park that offers eco-recreational activities, like organic farming, mangrove planting, bird watching, cycling, and boardwalks.
The design concept of Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort is based on an extensive exercise in coalescing all aspects of physical and mental wellness into an environmental-friendly development suitable for multi-generational living within a community, in which the designs are specifically derived through inspiration from nature and constantly referencing what nature has to offer.
With the convergence of nature, greens, wellness, and family-friendly architectural design, the design interventions are made to ensure any elements introduced can be well connected to its ecosystem and natural environment, allowing the 75-acre riverine development to be self-sustained and self-contained.
Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort will be applying for the Green Building Index Malaysia and the Green Mark Singapore accreditations. The environmental measures within the development will be reviewed by these parties periodically to ensure the development’s sustainability and preservation of the environment.
Moreover, the development is built around conserving and facilitating the sustainable usage of the Ramsar wetlands, in-line with the Malaysian Government’s mission of preserving the natural heritage of the wetlands and the booming trend of eco-tourism.
Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort is strategically located at the edge of Sungai Pulai Wetlands in Iskandar Malaysia Flagship Zone C which is still considered as a natural area and is “untapped” with large amount of potential for growth.
Sungai Pulai Wetlands is the third Ramsar site after Pulau Kukup and Tanjung Piai in Iskandar Malaysia. It covers at least 20,000 acres from the overall 25,000 acres of the three Ramsar sites.
The Ramsar Convention, or formally known as Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, is an intergovernmental treaty that provides the framework for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources.
“We see it not only as our responsibility, but also privilege and honour to lead the Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort project near a Ramsar site. This project is our pledge to continuously uphold the Convention’s mission and objectives of conserving and facilitating the sustainable usage of our prized wetlands,” said MB Group’s spokesperson.
Johor’s Chief Minister, Y.A.B Dato’ Mohamed Khaled Bin Nordin also stated, “Together with the rapid economic development in Iskandar Malaysia, Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort will significantly support the State and the Government’s mission of preserving the natural heritage of the wetlands. This works towards the sustainable development of the region to boost the commercial aspect of the country as well.”
Through the development of this significant project next to a Ramsar site, the developer aims to accentuate Iskandar Malaysia’s position globally – not only in promoting a valuable and unique eco-diversity, but also a great opportunity for eco-tourism and leisure activities focused on wellness.
Sungai Pulai Wellness Resort is supported by a network of reputable and experienced consultants from the region, such as Ong & Ong Architect and Coen Design International from Singapore, AJT Consultancy from Bangkok and Neapoli from Kuala Lumpur.
This themed resort aims to bring medical tourism in Malaysia to the next level. It will become an instrument to boost the Iskandar Malaysia region into a popular international retreat destination and promote the Sungai Pulai Wetlands at the same time. With the booming of eco-tourism in Malaysia, the developer will work hard to be the pioneer in developing such wellness resort in other area besides Sungai Pulai.
