Best Western International has announced that its expansion in Malaysia continues with the addition of a new luxury hotel in the Genting Highlands. The company is going to manage the brand new Best Western Premier Ion Delemen, Genting Highlands, which is currently under construction and will open in the first quarter of 2016.

When the property opens in the jungle-clad hills of Peninsular Malaysia, the 500-room Best Western Premier Ion Delemen, Genting Highlands will showcase its surroundings with a series of amenities that overlook the mountains.

Upon arrival in the premises of the property, guests will be taken up to the Sky Lobby to check-in, overlooking the forest canopy. The Sky Café will offer a picturesque place to grab bite to eat, while the Sky Garden is an ideal setting in which to relax and enjoy the natural landscapes, surrounded by water features. Also, the rooftop deck and fire pit will provide a venue to unwind at the end of the day.
