The Malmaison chain was put up for sale by KSL Capital Partners in January this year, three years after it was first acquired. It will now be run by Frasers Hospitality UK Holding, a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore group Frasers Centrepoint (FCL).

The Malmaison and Hotel du Vin chains have a portfolio of 29 boutique lifestyle hotels across 25 cities in the United Kingdom.

Lim Ee Seng, group CEO of FCL, said: "FCL’s strategy remains focused on achieving balanced growth across asset classes and diversifying our earnings profile. This acquisition is important as it doubles our offerings in Europe to about 4,000 keys and it propels Frasers Hospitality to be one of the leading hospitality players in this market."
