 ITT SHERATON OPENS ITS FIRST PROPERTY IN MALAYSIA
 LANGKAWI, Malaysia, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- ITT Sheraton


Corporation's first property in Malaysia, the Sheraton Langkawi Resort, has opened in time to host the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition.
 Located on Pulau Langkawi, an island off the northwestern tip of Malaysia, the 300-room Sheraton Langkawi Resort came on line with 80 rooms and will be fully operational by early 1992. Built in a natural tropical setting, the property is 45 minutes, by air, from the capital city, Kuala Lumpur.
 Owned by the Langkawi Development Authority and managed by ITT Sheraton, the Sheraton Langkawi Resort is the first of a number of Sheraton projects planned in Malaysia over the next several years.
 Last spring, ITT Sheraton announced a joint venture with IHD Holdings Limited, a Hong Kong-based Malaysian company, for the 400-room Sheraton Towers Kuala Lumpur. Scheduled to open in early 1994, the new "all towers" property will be part of a large commercial complex consisting of retail and office space in the capital city's main tourist center.
 "Malaysia is an emerging destination with excellent potential for tourism and business," said John Kapioltas, ITT Sheraton chairman, president and chief executive officer.
 When fully operational, resort facilities at the Sheraton Langkawi Resort will include four restaurants and a lounge, a ballroom accommodating up to 400 people, health club and spa, swimming pool, tennis courts, and a variety of hotel services, such as laundry/valet, 24-hour room service, and a child care center. All rooms, including 22 suites and 155 chalets, feature views of the ocean and gardens.
 Elsewhere in Asia, ITT Sheraton has several new projects underway in Indonesia and Thailand, and presently operates 25 properties in 13 countries throughout the region.
 ITT Sheraton, a subsidiary of ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT), is a global hotel network of nearly 450 properties operating in 62 countries worldwide.
