SATORI, scheduled for completion in 2020, comprises 336 units of hotel suites, 192 serviced suites, and is equipped with more than 50 world-standard fitness-health-wellness facilities.
“The second phase of the hotel suites will be launched soon,” Tan says.
The price of a hotel suite unit ranges between RM400,000 and RM700,000.
He spoke at the launch of the new Hatten sales gallery in Penang, located in Menara Northam Tower at Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah.
“Before setting up the 2,000sq ft sales gallery in Penang, our sales team generated very good response from the roadshows held in Penang.
“This is why we are confident of doing well in Penang,” he says.

On the wellness-theme of SATORI, Tan says the global wellness market is valued currently at US$3.7trillion.
