Best Western has signed a management contract for a new hotel in the Genting Highlands of Malaysia to expand its presence in the country.
The Best Western Premier Ion Delemen, Genting Highlands, which is currently under construction, is located in the jungle-clad hills of Peninsular Malaysia, and is expected to open in Q1 2016.
Upon arrival at the 500-room Best Western Premier Ion Delemen, guests will be taken up to the Sky Lobby to check-in, overlooking the forest canopy.
The Sky Café will offer snacks and beverages, while the Sky Garden will offer a private retreat and is surrounded by water features.
The hotel’s facilities will also include an infinity-edged swimming pool, a spa, fitness centre, sauna, multi-purpose events hall, restaurant and children’s playground.
Guests will also be able to enjoy golf and horse riding, and benefit from various retail and entertainment offerings nearby, which will soon include the world’s first 20th Century Fox theme park.
Best Western international operations for Asia & Middle East vice president Glenn de Souza said: "We are making tremendous progress with the expansion of our portfolio in Malaysia, especially in terms of our high-end hotel products.
"Best Western Premier Ion Delemen is another wonderful example of the quality of hotel we are now offering in this exciting country. With services and facilities comparable to any international five-star brand, these stylish hotels represent the new face of Best Western in Asia."
Currently, Best Western operates four hotels in Malaysia, with further plans for at least 16 properties in the next three years.
