And like all Best Western hotels worldwide, it will provide guests will complimentary Wi-Fi.
The new resort is also designed to be environmentally-friendly, using 100% renewable energy, including wind and solar power. It also harvests rainwater to be used elsewhere in the property.
“We are delighted to have been entrusted with the running of this stunning, environmentally-friendly resort,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western’s vice president of international operations for Asia & Middle East.
“Best Western Premier The Haven, Ipoh, really does offer what its name suggests: a blissful haven of peace and tranquility set among the ancient jungles of Ipoh. Guests can indulge in a vast range of leisure pursuits, including jogging, walking and racket sports, or simply relax and unwind in the resort’s stunning swimming pools.
“And the resort’s excellent energy-saving initiatives mean guests will have peace of mind, knowing their stay is in balance and harmony with the surrounding environment,” de Souza added.
Best Western Premier The Haven, Ipoh, will become Best Western’s fourth hotel in Malaysia, following existing properties in Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan.
