Best Western opens new resort in Malaysia
Bangkok, February 6, 2013
Leading hotel chain Best Western International has launched a new 300-room resort in Malaysia, located in the popular coastal town of Port Dickson.
The resort is a 40-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (Klia) and 90 minutes from KL. The Best Western Prima Inland Sea Resort offers an exciting new option for leisure travelers and corporate groups, a statement from the brand said.
Set within 23 secluded acres, the resort is set upon Malaysia’s largest manmade beach - a palm-fringed paradise the size of five Olympic-sized swimming pools. The hotel is centered on a huge, lagoon-style swimming pool, complete with waterslides, pirate ships, whirlpools and waterfalls.
It offers a vast array of leisure facilities for all ages, including a steam room, massage services, fitness center, kids’ club, karaoke room, bicycle hire, game room, and an open air theater for live evening performances.
Best Western Prima Inland Sea Resort is the ideal destination for corporate groups, with 16 multi-purpose functions rooms catering events, and the 875m² Grand Prima Ballroom able to accommodate up to 1,500 guests, the statement said.
“With such an incredible array of facilities and its location close to Kuala Lumpur, Best Western Prima Inland Sea Resort is the perfect destination for family getaways and corporate retreats,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s vice president of international operations – Asia & the Middle East.
“The Malaysian hotel sector is currently booming, driven by the increasing spending power of Malaysian travelers, excellent transport links, and the quality of accommodation on offer. As the beach resort of choice for so many Malaysians, Port Dickson is at the very heart of this growth. We are confident the Best Western Prima Inland Sea Resort will become one of our most popular Asian properties,” he added.
Best Western Prima Inland Sea Resort becomes the sixth Best Western property in Malaysia, and continues the company’s rapid expansion in the country, the statement said. Last year, Best Western debuted in Kuala Lumpur with the launch of Malaysia’s first luxury Best Western Premier hotel, and the company also has firm plans to add six more destinations across the country, including KL, Ipoh, Melaka, Shah Alam, Petalingjaya and Port Klang. – TradeArabia News Service
