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.
