The masterplan development project in Pulau Duyong included building chalets at the Heritage Bay Club last year for the Monsoon Cup, an international yacht race. The Duyong Restaurant, by zlgdesign is now open to the public and serves breakfast and dinner for in-staying hotel and chalet guests.
About 36 berths have recently been constructed for the marina, with 180 berths expected to be completed by year’s end. The Monsoon Cup made its debut at the end of 2006 as part of the world’s second largest international sailing race – the Swedish Match Tour – to take place in nine stages around the world. The event has drawn celebrities including Hong Kong movie star Jackie Chan and Ferrari chief Jean Todt to purchase property on the island.
Part of the masterplan has the island providing a small but beautifully designed reception, ample facility for activities and recreational sports. The resort promises to be one of the best attractions this part of Malaysia.
