Best Western opens first hotel in Kuala Lumpur

Best Western announcing the opening of Best Western Premier Dua Sentral, which marks not only Best Western’s debut in the Malaysian capital, but also the debut of the luxury Best Western Premier brand in the country.

The landmark property has now become Best Western’s flagship hotel in Malaysia.

Located in Kuala Lumpur’s new business and transportation hub, KL Sentral, the new 364-room property offers a range of contemporary rooms ranging from approximately 365 square feet to approximately 1,969 square feet, each including facilities such as LCD interactive TVs, DVD players and iPod docking stations. As with all Best Western hotels around the world, it will also offer complimentary in-room Internet access.

Culinary offerings include the Kembali Kitchen, which serves traditional Malaysian and international dishes; Hugo’s on 6, a fusion restaurant combining Mediterranean and Oriental flavors; and Grill 582, which offers the steaks and seafood.

There are eight function rooms able to host from 12 to 192 delegates, an infinity-edged swimming pool, and Best Western’s signature Bhuvana Spa.

Also opening in 2012 will be the Best Western Wana Riverside Hotel in Melaka, while future developments will see new Best Western hotels rise in Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh, Klang, Shah Alam and Petaling Jaya. In total, Best Western will operate 11 properties in Malaysia by 2015, offering more than 1,700 rooms across nine unique destinations.
