Best Western Hotels & Resorts has announced that a brand new, upscale hotel will soon be launching in Malaysia’s Genting Highlands.

Scheduled for Q4 of 2016 opening, Best Western Premier Genting Ion Delemen stands in the hills of Pahang state, in the centre of the Malay Peninsula. The property is in close proximity to numerous attractions such as the Chin Swee Cave Temple and Genting’s Resorts World, which boasts a theme park, a casino and Malaysia’s longest cable car ride. Later on in the year, the location will also be welcoming large shopping malls, while in 2017 a 20th Century Fox theme park is expected to open its doors.

Managing director of international operations – Asia, Best Western Hotels & Resorts, Olivier Berrivin commented: “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. 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.”
