FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Managed by Swiss-Belhotel International, Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa is a beach holiday resort located in Sepang in the southern part of Selangor, Malaysia. A tranquil region of plantations and beautiful scenery that is growing in popularity as a nature tourism destination, Sepang is also the location of Sepang International Circuit.
Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa was chosen as the preferred host for internationally acclaimed artistes, race drivers and racing teams participating in the 2011 Malaysian F-1 Grand Prix, the Super GT and the Malaysian Moto GP and this honour has already been extended for a number race events in 2012. The resort has also earned several international accolades, including the distinguished Malaysian French Chamber of Commerce and Industry award (MFCCI) under its Green Technology Category, and the Best Eco-Tourism Product: Most Innovative Tourism Attraction 2010/2011.
Stretching out from the shore almost a kilometre into the sheltered waters of the Straits of Malacca, Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa is uniquely designed in the form of palm fronds. Featuring broad walkways between over 300 comfortable and stylish sea villas, the resort is a fusion of modern and traditional design.

Besides a serene and peaceful sandy beach, which is perfect for relaxing and sunbathing, guests can enjoy the resort's recreation centre which offers a fitness room, library and TV room.
