Best Western Hotels & Resorts has opened a new hotel in Malaysia’s popular mountainous resort area, Genting Highlands.

Best Western Premier Genting Ion Delemen is part of the group’s “upscale” portfolio and is located near multiple attractions, including Chin Swee Temple and Genting’s Resort World – home to a large theme park, casino and Malaysia’s longest cable car ride.

Attractions under development include two retail malls that will open later this year, as well as the world’s first 20th Century Fox theme park, which will open in 2017.

The 299-room hotel offers multiple accommodation types, ranging from studio to one-, two- and three-bedroom suites. All guestrooms come with separate living areas, bedrooms and kitchenettes. In addition, modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs, international power outlets and complimentary wifi are provided.

Facilities include six restaurants and bars with al fresco seating areas. There is also a rooftop garden, heated swimming pool, spa, fitness centre, children’s play area, and multiple meeting spaces for events and conferences.

“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 Hotels & Resorts’ managing director of international operations, Asia.

“Our impressive new hotel, Best Western Premier Genting Ion Delemen, will provide contemporary and stylish upscale accommodation for visitors.”
