Stay in China, Japan, and Malaysia
By Tyler Bohlman
Get a new perspective on history. Whether you’re travelling to a place where you can touch, see, and feel the history all around you, or taking an exotic trip to where history is passed down from generation to generation, Members can use Points* to reserve stays at hotels available through the Explorer Collection, including historical destinations like Hiroshima, Japan; Beijing, China; or Langkawi and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Spend a day on land or in the water with these exceptional resorts.
EXPLORE HISTORIC JAPAN
Explore all Hiroshima has to offer at the Sheraton Grand Hiroshima Hotel. Located just steps from direct access to the bullet train and bus terminals, stay in the heart of it all as you explore Hiroshima’s historic sites and architecture from the comfort of your own suite. Try authentic Japanese cuisine where three types of speciality chefs — sushi, Teppan, and Kaiseki — make incredible Japanese food by using local, fresh ingredients, or relax with friends at the bar. Take the train into the city where more dining experiences, shopping, and historic Hiroshima provide something for every member of your family to look forward to.
SPEND TIME NEAR THE WATER
Ocean views surround you during your stay at The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa in Malaysia. Energise your morning with a dip in one of four pools, or take a walk through iconic Eagle Square. Keep the energy flowing throughout the day with on-the-water activities such as kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, and more. Or explore Malaysia’s natural beauty when you pick up a map for a run or join the RunWESTIN™ Concierge team for a curated outdoor running route. Recharge with the ocean-view restaurants and bars. Exciting dining awaits when you sample curated cocktails, wines, and spirits along with nightly live music at Breeze Lounge; eat a mouthwatering selection of local and international fares at Seasonal Tastes; dine on a variety of grills and steaks at Tide; munch on bar snacks at Splash; and add a romantic dinner at Float.
EXPERIENCE THE HEART OF CHINA
Discover the comfortable accommodation at JW Marriott Hotel Beijing, ideal for both business or leisure travellers in the bustling city centre of Beijing, China. Enjoy high-speed internet access, a variety of restaurants and lounges, minibars, and rainforest showers as you relax around the hotel grounds. Lose yourself in China’s capital city and visit popular destinations like the Millennium Monument, Beijing Botanical Garden, Temple of Heaven, the Ming Tombs, and more.
NEW MEETS OLD
As previously reported in Insider, the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel in the Golden Triangle is now open as an ideal destination for your travel needs. With easy access to two nearby Monorail train stations, you’ll be able to explore all the capital of Malaysia offers, from modern skyscrapers and thriving business to culture amidst historic architecture. After a day of adventuring, relax and recharge with a serene spa treatment, a dip in a sparkling pool, or a delicious meal ordered to your room or enjoyed in Essence, the on-site restaurant.
