Best Western has unveiled plans for a major new upscale hotel in Malaysia’s Genting Highlands.
The brand new Best Western Premier Genting Ion Delemen is set in the jungle-clad hills of Pahang state, in the centre of the Malay Peninsula. It is located close to Genting’s Resorts World, which features a large theme park, casino and Malaysia’s longest cable car ride.
In addition, two large retails malls are due to open in the area later this year, and the world’s first 20th Century Fox theme park is scheduled to welcome visitors in 2017.
“The Genting Highlands is becoming a must-visit destination, not only for Malaysian travellers wanting a break from the city, but also for a rising number of international guests,” said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western’s managing director of international operations for Asia. “With beautiful natural scenery, an array of world-class attractions and 20th Century Fox World on track to open next year, there are now multiple reasons to visit.
“Best Western Premier Genting Ion Delemen will provide contemporary and stylish upscale accommodation for visitors. And with its outstanding collection of upscale facilities and incredible setting, the hotel is likely to become a destination its own right,” he added.
Scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2016, Best Western Premier Genting Ion Delemen will offer a collection of rooms, ranging from studios to one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, all featuring separate living areas, bedrooms and kitchenettes, and free Wi-Fi.
There are also six restaurants and bars, many of which offer floor-to-ceiling windows or al fresco seating areas overlooking the mountains. There is also a sky garden, a heated swimming pool, spa, fitness centre, children’s play area, and space and conferences and events.
Guests will also be offered free shuttle bus services to the Genting Highlands’ other attractions, including Resorts World.
Best Western currently operates three hotels in Malaysia, located in Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya and Ipoh.
