Best Western opens hotel in the clouds at Malaysia hill resort

Best Western GentingHotelier chain Best Western recently opened a new property in the beautiful Genting Highlands region of Malaysia. The Best Western Premier at Jalan Ion Delemen boasts a collection of 246 superior rooms and suites which are packed with modern facilities and conveniences.

The hotel enjoys an enviable position 5,000 metres up in the forest-covered Genting hills. Resorts World Genting is within easy distance and offers hotel guests access to a theme park, a cable car odyssey through the hills and a casino packed with top table games like baccarat and roulette and slot machines.

Best Western’s Asia-region director, Olivier Berrivin, said the Genting Highlands was fast becoming a destination of choice for both Malaysian and overseas visitors. He noted that the highlands were only 45 minutes from downtown Kuala Lumpur and ideal for a break from big-city life.

Best Western’s local partner, Ion Delemen Hospitality, is operating the establishment. Signature guest amenities onsite are a heated indoor swimming pool and a children’s pool, a spa and sauna, a state-of-the-art gym and a play zone for kids.

Guests at this Best Western will certainly not go hungry or thirsty. The Oasis Pool Bar and a seventh-floor eyrie bar provide a full choice of beverages and snacks. The Mediterranean themed Hugo’s in the Sky, the Kembali Kitchen and Beanz Café serve up culinary specialities to tantalise the taste buds.

Event organisers will find the hotel has a range of rooms and halls to suit all requirements. The Best Western provides free shuttle services to Resorts World Genting.
