Situated between the prestigious Kuala Lumpur City Centre and the Golden 
Triangle neighbourhood, 8 Conlay consists of three towers atop a four-storey 
experiential retail space. The three towers consist of the five-star Kempinski 
Hotel and two luxury residential towers created in partnership with the global 
design group, YOO, called YOO8 serviced by Kempinski. 

Designed by award-winning Malaysian architect Hud Bakar (of RSP Architects) 
with landscaping by Thai landscape architect Pok Kobkongsanti (of TROP Studio), 
8 Conlay marks the inaugural development of the Malaysian lifestyle property 
developer KSK Land. 

Perfectly poised between nature and the city's leading attractions, YOO8 at 8 
Conlay provides a whole new modern living experience including: 

- A Water Lounge on the 26th floor - an oasis of relaxing ripple pools, 
gymnasium, and stellar city views for the perfect hideaway. 

- A Green Refuge on the 44th floor - a sky park inspired by the sloping 
Balinese rice terraces brimming with local flora. 

"Aside from its world-class facilities, YOO8 also provides a variety of 
five-star hospitality services by Kempinski for maximum comfort. This includes 
Kempinski's famous Lady in Red, valet, 24-hour security system, 
Japanese-speaking concierge and doorman. There is also the choice of a la carte 
services that range from laundry, housekeeping, to a daycare centre for 
children. This is living redefined," said Joanne Kua, Managing Director of KSK 
Land.

Malaysia is known as a leading destination for long-stay tourism amongst 
Japanese tourists. Statista Research 
Department[https://www.statista.com/statistics/1080646/japan-number-japanese-res
idents-malaysia/] stated that more than 26.5 thousand Japanese residents were 
registered in Malaysia as of October 2018. Furthermore, Malaysia has topped the 
list of countries favoured by Japanese for extended stays 11 years straight 
according to All Nippon Airways 
Co[https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2017/12/14/national/malaysias-second-home-p
rogram-losing-allure-japanese-3-11/#.XteKa6ZS-Ul]. This is credited to its 
lower living costs, warm year-round climate and the Malaysia My Second Home 
(MM2H) tax privileges.

In contrast to Japan's real estate market where property depreciates at a 
comparatively faster pace, real estate in Malaysia offers a stable investment 
opportunity, and provides more comfortable living spaces at a fraction of the 
cost. These favourable qualities create an attractive investment and living 
proposition for the Japanese market.

"As the real estate price and consumption taxes are increasing in Japan, YOO8 
becomes a golden opportunity for Japanese people who are looking for property 
investment or planning retirement in Malaysia. Lower taxes, world-class 
healthcare, and 1-year Platinum membership to Kempinski Discovery Loyalty 
Programme are few of the perks that residents can instantly benefit. YOO8 also 
offers easy application to the MM2H Programme to facilitate the Japanese 
market, acquiring their dream homes at the vibrant heart of South East Asia's 
fastest-growing city," said Kua.
