‘Eden at Botanica.CT will set a new benchmark of aged care living, providing the people of Penang and northern region Malaysia a choice of senior living options as we pursue the diversity of excellence on the world stage and in line with the Penang 2030 vision.

A household name in the nursing care industry, Eden-On-The-Park has been operating a community health care centre in Kuching, Sarawak.

it has gained national recognition for its brand as well as expertise in delivering high quality service in senior care Operations, having recognised by Pemandu as an Entry Point Project (EPP) and granted EPP17 Status on June 23, 2014.

It received pioneer incentives from Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and awarded multiple recognitions as the Best Retirement facilities in the region and Malaysia by a number of international aged care and retirement villages forum.

This latest joint venture in Balik Pulau will be modelled after the award-winning facility in Kuching, and licensed by the Health Ministry and state Welfare Department.

Describing the facility as a good model, Jagdeep said would request the local council to work closely with Eden at Botanica.CT to determine and set up some local guidelines on the initiative.

With RM180mil worth of direct domestic investment. Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said Eden at Botanica.CT would contribute to job employment for youth while setting a new trend in meeting the needs of the seniors by creating a Penang based international standard nursing facility akin to those in mature countries like Australia.

“The state is all for the idea of an integrated senior resort as it develops the network of proactive elderly care facilities that enhances community spirit, independence and security with low maintenance while providing the necessary facility and emergency support right at your doorstep.

”As we move another step closer to realising the Penang 2030 vision, I urge other corporate entities to take the lead in giving back to the community and build social good into the framework of your businesses,” he said.

Penang to appoint Gurney Wharf consultant next month

September 22nd, 2020 No comments 中文版


The Penang government will appoint a consultant for the landscaping works at the newly-reclaimed Gurney Wharf project next month, says Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said the consultant would then have time to call for tender to appoint contractors for various stages of work on the 131 acres of land.

“The state government is in the process of appointing a consultant for the landscaping works. Out of the 131 acres of land, about 40 acres are for public facilities.

“The rest are for road reserves and other uses. So, the planting of trees will probably start early next year,” Chow said in response to a question by a reporter after witnessing the signing of a joint venture agreement between Botanica Hills Sdn Bhd and Eden-On-The-Park Sdn Bhd to build Penang’s first Integrated Senior Living Resort in Balik Pulau.

Among the components of the Gurney Wharf project, which is a state government initiative, are a promenade, a park, a skating rink, a children’s playground and a man-made beach.

It was announced earlier that the consultant was to be appointed in February but the Covid-19 pandemic has delayed the appointment.

When the project is completed in 2021, not only residents in Tanjung Bungah but all the people in Penang can enjoy the new waterfront of Gurney Wharf.

Regulations for Airbnb and hotels to be finalised by year end

September 21st, 2020 4 comments


The standardization of several issues including regulations, licensing and taxes involving the hotel sector and global online accommodation service provider, Airbnb will be finalized by the end of this year.

Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin (pictured) said the standardization should take into account various aspects and determine the best methods that can be beneficial to both parties, as the Airbnb sector also has the potential to contribute to the national economy.

“The matter is still under discussion as to how we want to classify Airbnb and it takes into account the agreement to allow private homes to be involved with the sector as well as discussions with the management bodies in housing estates.

“It involves the Housing and Local Government Ministry together with the Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry, the state government and the Malaysian Productivity Corporation (MPC) to find a way on how we can standardize the issue as a whole,” she told reporters after the Inauguration Ceremony of the Taman Murai Jaya Community Hub, Durian Tunggal yesterday.

On Monday, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economic Affairs) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed was reported to have said that the government would finalize the standardization of a number of issues including regulations and taxes involving hotels and Airbnb, in an effort to help the sector which was severely affected by Covid-19.
