    Best Western International (BWI) has officially launched its first hotel in Kuala Lumpur; BEST WESTERN PREMIER Dua Sentral.

    The recently open luxury hotel marks not only Best Western’s debut in the fast-growing 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 is less than 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport via the KLIA Express rail service and a short ride from the city’s main shopping and entertainment districts, making it the perfect place for a relaxing vacation or important business meeting.

    “We are delighted to open this stunning new hotel and introduce our BEST WESTERN PREMIER brand to Malaysia,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s Vice President International Operations – Asia & the Middle East.

    “The location is perfect – just minutes from both the city and airport, it is the ideal place from which to base a business or leisure trip. The hotel’s exquisite facilities also make it wonderful destination in its own right,” Mr. de Souza added.

    BEST WESTERN PREMIER Dua Sentral offers a range of contemporary rooms ranging from 34 to 183m², each including upscale 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.

    Guests will be treated to an array of culinary experiences, including 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 finest steaks and sumptuous seafood.

    Business travelers and groups are catered with eight function rooms able to host from 12 to 192 delegates, while those wanting a more relaxing experience can unwind in the infinity-edged swimming pool and Best Western’s signature Bhuvana Spa.

    The opening of BEST WESTERN PREMIER Dua Sentral marks a major milestone in Best Western’s Malaysian expansion plans. 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.
