Best Western Unveils Spectacular Hotel in Malaysia’s Genting Highlands
(Bangkok – September 5th 2016): Best Western® Hotels & Resorts has unveiled a stunning new upscale hotel in Malaysia’s popular and scenic Genting Highlands.
The brand new Best Western Premier Genting Ion Delemen is nestled into the lush jungle-clad hills of Pahang state, in the center of the Malay Peninsula. As well as providing the perfect natural retreat for both Malaysian and international visitors, the new hotel is also on the doorstep of multiple attractions, such as Chin Swee Cave Temple and 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.
Best Western Premier Genting Ion Delemen is operated by Ion Delemen Hospitality Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the NCT Group of Companies.
“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. “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.
“Our impressive new hotel, 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,” Mr Berrivin 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. All rooms will offer modern amenities including flat-screen TVs, international power outlets and complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as spacious bathrooms and large windows that overlook the lush Titiwangsa Mountains.
This brand new hotel also incorporates a vast array of amenities. There are no fewer than six restaurants and bars, most of which offer floor-to-ceiling windows or al fresco seating areas that merge seamlessly with the natural surroundings. There is also a sky garden, a heated swimming pool, luxurious spa, fully-equipped fitness center, children’s play area, and extensive space and conferences and events.
Guests will also be able to access the Genting Highlands’ many other attractions – including Resorts World – using the hotel’s complimentary shuttle bus service.
Best Western Hotels & Resorts currently operates three hotels in Malaysia, located in Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya and Ipoh. Best Western Premier Genting Ion Delemen will become the company’s second upscale hotel in the central mountains of the Malay Peninsula, following the spectacular Best Western Premier The Haven Ipoh.

Indonesia to launch 13th economic package this month
Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.
Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.
"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.
The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
