'Plans' is one thing, actually building it is a whole other thing. They have talked about a world-class aquatics facility over the past 5 years but nothing is coming up. Until I see cranes and excavators, this is just a 'plan.'

From Malaysia Hotel News :

VISIT Malaysia Year will be officially over on August 31, in conjunction with Malaysia's 51st year of independence.

From September through to 2009, Tourism Malaysia's will be promoting destinations with an emphasis on ecotourism.

New destinations to be promoted include highlands resorts such as Fraser's Hill and Cameron Highlands. Beach destinations such as Pangkor in Perak, Cherating in Pahang and Desaru in Johor will also be promoted aggressively to overseas markets.

Tourism Malaysia will still continue to promote annual events that have proven to be international crowd-pullers, such as Petronas Malaysian Formula One Grand Prix and the Sarawak Rainforest World Music Festival, which drew a crowd of 22,000 over three days in July.

Other crowd-pulling events include Miri Jazz Festival in Sarawak's northern tourism hub of Miri and Penang World Music Festival, which will celebrate its third year in 2009.

Sarawak is right for ecotourism.. but I think our govt is not doing enuff to promote it at a larger scale.

Kuching's Rainforest World Music Festival is similar to the Moroccan Music Festival, only Morocco's is concentrating on Arab music while Kuching's concentrates on more eclectic music. I have to admit, RWMF is slowly turning into Edinburgh's Fringe and Culture festivals with all the new side events.

Penang's was supposed to be based on the World Music and Dance; similar to WOMAD Adelaide. Miri's is purely jazz.

Remember, RWMF was first designed by the STB during Datuk Johari's reign as Minister of Tourism. The Jazz Festival was originally held in Kuching around the Museum Gardens before being moved to Miri.

And they rebranded Holiday Inn Damai Beach into Damai Beach Resort; no longer under Holiday Inn and IHG. It is barely a high-class hotel, more mid-market. The high class version of the brand is the Crowne Plaza and Intercontinental brands.

Er... I don't think they ever promote the resort as high class. It's more family-oriented and midrange. >_>
