The Mall is not yet eaten up by tiny stalls at every single corner and walkway like those malls in Kuala Lumpur and elsewhere. A good shopping mall should be spacey, lots and lots of open spaces.
Space is what The Spring is.

The Mall is still new and fresh with many retailers yet to be opened.

The new Spring shopping mall, different, exciting and vibrant and based on the design of shopping malls popular in Australia and New Zealand, took pride of place on a 12-acre site in Kuching City of Sarawak.

This retail mall marks the Kuching city’s coming of age. Kuching, with a population of 600,000 but a retail environment far behind that of similar-sized cities other part of Malaysia. This new Spring brings a bounce into the City of Cats.


Situated along a main thoroughfare in a high profile neighborhood of South Kuching, the two-storey mall will have 350,000sq ft of space and 1,500 car-parking bays, with entrances/exits from all four directions.

The RM150 million project was designed by a New Zealand-based architectural firm, Warren & Mahoney, which has a strong influence on retail outlet concepts and the built environment in that country.

The Spring give Sarawakians as well as visitors to the Sarawak a rewarding shopping experience, with a wide range of retail choice.


Perbena Emas, builder of The Spring, is a construction company incorporated in 1977 and the shopping mall is its maiden venture into property development, on a site it purchased 12 years ago.

Both Perbena Emas and PSB Realty come under Pan-Sarawak Co Sdn Bhd, which started off in the timber trade and then moved on to building and construction materials and air-conditioning supplies.

The group has carried out major building and infrastructure work in Sarawak, including civil structure work for the Malaysia Liquefied Natural Gas plant in Bintulu, the Sarawak General Hospital in Kuching as well as the Hock Lee Centre and Wisma STA in Kuching.

“The Spring Shopping Mall” in Kuching is the biggest shopping mall in Sarawak opened to public on the 10th January 2008. The first large-scale lifestyle shopping centre in this city.
With this gigantic shopping mall, tourists enjoy their time in Kuching, Sarawak in this 2-storey mall.

The Spring Shopping Mall, Kuching

Mother of pearls sit artfully clustered in brass settings, while Swarovski crystals grace slinky velvet chokers reminiscent of bygone romance. And, as if in choreographed mismatch, chunky jewel-bright gemstones on retro gold brooches present a petal play amidst dyed beads that trickle down fringed pieces in tribal charm.

The brand, which is denoted by a single lime-green and turquoise blossom, also presents the young ones with the Axxezz Kidz Klek Kleh Collection which was inspired by little girls with hair scraped back in braids and ponytails. The collection is a charming and colorful confection of adorable fashion accessories comprising sweet candy-pink party pouches to tactile lace hair bands and fun trinkets. Each pretty piece is richly detailed with bright, playful accents that celebrate the flower fairy in children.
