The group already manages four distinctive properties in the country, including Amari Johor Bahru, the lively OZO Georgetown Penang, and the recently inaugurated Amari SPICE Penang and Amari Kuala Lumpur.

With a variety of facilities and locations throughout the diverse and hospitable country of Malaysia, ONYX Hospitality Group is well-prepared to cater to the needs of all travellers, whether guests are checking-in for business, MICE, leisure, or the increasingly popular ‘bleisure’ stays.

As a testament to the Group’s commitment to strategic growth, ONYX Hospitality Group, a prominent management company in Southeast Asia specialising in hotels & resorts, serviced apartments and luxury residences now welcomes three new properties: OZO Medini, Shama Medini and Shama Suasana Johor Bahru.

This expansion will result in a total of seven properties in Malaysia by the end of 2024, making Malaysia the first country, outside of Thailand, to host all three ONYX brands: Amari, OZO and Shama.

Shama, a distinctive brand under the ONYX Hospitality Group umbrella, redefines the concept of serviced apartments, offering a harmonious blend of contemporary design, spacious living, and personalised services for an elevated and memorable stay experience.

The new hotels in Malaysia form part of the Group’s strategy to drive significant expansion in the hotel, resort, and serviced apartment business in Southeast Asia. The company is on track to operate over 50 properties by 2025, up from 44 at present, and an even more ambitious target of 70 by 2028.
