Situated on the tropical latitudes near the equator, Malaysia is known for its hot and humid tropical weather. From spending the weekend in the mall to switching our fashion items to more breathable and cooling materials, the locals surely have many ways to beat the heat.
But apart from these small hacks to stay cool, travelling up to the highlands to escape the heat is also much loved by Malaysians. Not only can you enjoy the cool autumn-like weather, it’s also a refreshing short getaway from the bustling city to wind down and have fun. That’s killing two birds with one stone!
Located 6,000 feet above sea level, Grand Ion Delemen Hotel is an oasis of relaxation nestled in the tropical rainforest of Genting Highlands. This award-winning accommodation offers an intimate urban resort experience with a spectacular mountain view of Titiwangsa Range and features over 500 contemporary guest rooms, suite rooms and penthouses.
Whether you need a one-bedroom suite for a mini getaway with your partner or a large penthouse when travelling in big groups, each room is thoughtfully designed and equipped with ultra-comfy bedding and complimentary WiFi access to stream your favourite tunes before a good night’s sleep. Although the hotel is located at another peak of Genting Highlands – about 10 minutes drive away from the theme park and casino – guests can hop on to their complimentary shuttle bus that runs hourly to Sky Avenue without hassle. (Plus, the relative isolation from the bustle is more rejuvenating than you think!)
With an extensive choice of restaurants, recreational facilities, outdoor activities and multiple Instagram-worthy corners around, the hotel is a great choice for seasoned travellers or guests who are seeking for a quiet and relaxing vacation up in the mountains.
As we look forward to more upcoming long weekends, here are five more exciting experiences offered by the hotel so you know what you should check out on your days off.
