Kuala Lumpur, 29 May – KSK Land Sdn Bhd (KSK Land), developer of 8 Conlay, recently launched the Kempinski Discovery Platinum Card exclusively for all owners of YOO8 serviced by Kempinski at a special appreciation night for purchasers which doubled up as the celebration for Kempinski’s 120th anniversary.
YOO8 serviced by Kempinski is the branded residence component of 8 Conlay, an integrated luxury development with a gross development value around RM 5.4billion. More than 70 purchasers attended the glamorous anniversary celebration themed ‘Ignite The Night’, held at the 8 Conlay Signature Sales Gallery, some flying in from overseas.

A platinum membership allows for priority and flexibility, with guaranteed room availability, upgrades and late check-outs, in addition to in-room benefits. Card holders will also see a complimentary third night stay and early access to Kempinski pre-packages.
Congratulating Kempinski on their 120 years of excellence, Joanne Kua, added, “The Kempinski brand has remained the epitome of refined taste and luxury for more than a century. The perfection they provide to guests was our inspiration when curating 8 Conlay. With the complimentary loyalty card, owners of YOO8 serviced by Kempinski will now enjoy a sneak peek into luxury hospitality offered by Kempinski – the same comfort and sophistication they will enjoy later at 8 Conlay”.
In the spirit of Kempinski’s ‘Ignite the Night’ anniversary theme, YOO8 owners were given a taste of the lavish Kempinski experience starting with a lighting ritual that is reminiscent of the traditional European etiquette which signifies the beginning of an elegant evening.

The highlight of the night was the “Make A Wish” lucky draws gifting winners with stays at the Duplex Cabana Suite at Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok, Deluxe Room at Sunrise Kempinski Hotel Beijing and Executive Bund View Room at Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai respectively.

Our shared vision of creating rich and meaningful experiences through personalized luxury services will set a new standard for hospitality as they are delivered with excellence,” said General Manager of Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok and Senior Vice President of Operations in South-East Asia, Samir Wildemann.
